I have had a Yahoo email address for a long time but have not used for a while.

I want to sign into Yahoo now, but it asks me a security question. I have forgotten the answer to this security question.

I know my user name and password, but I can’t sign in without answering the security question. Is there any way to sign in without the security question?


If you happen to have an alternate email address listed with your Yahoo account you may be able to get a link to reset your password sent to that alternate email address. See Recovering a lost or forgotten password on the Yahoo help pages for more info.


Back when my account got hacked, I was able to recover it by calling customer support at 866-562-7219.

This was almost six years ago, but it should still work.
