GetHuman-stellawr's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Yahoo doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-stellawr will need to dig through the advice provided by Yahoo, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-stellawr can let us know if they help or not.
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a BBB-accredited US-based company that has live experts you can chat with about issues like this for roughly $20-45. Chat now with an expert.
Before contacting them, items GetHuman-stellawr may need:
Email on Account, Username, Password, and Name of Account Holder
Top Tip from another customer
If you're having issues with a password, try resetting it using your email address (be sure to use the correct spelling). Click "Forgot Password" under the login, then follow the prompt. You should have the option to reset with your phone number.
The issue in GetHuman-stellawr's own words
I am trying to set my grandma up with an Apple ID, she has been acessing her yahoo mail via a iPad that has been logged in as a guest user. We still have access to her email account, but we do not know the password and when we put in the primary account holders details, it says that both her and her husbands details (we’ve tried both) are wrong. What I’m asking is is there a way for us to go around these obsticals and verify her account in a different way. I am going to use my grandmas email as the contact email, as I said we can access the mail, we just can’t log in to any new platforms (which is meaning we can’t set up her new phone)
GetHuman-stellawr did not yet indicate what Yahoo should do to make this right.
