Forgetting password is not a big problem these days but if you don’t get the password recovery code on your registered phone number then it is a big problem. Phone number is the fastest method to recover the password but there may be situations when recovering the password via phone number becomes difficult. So, the question is how can we recover our Yahoo password in such situation?
Here is a list of methods using which you can easily recover your Yahoo password without phone number.
1. Use alternate email
Apart from phone number option, Yahoo also asks its users to link a working email account with their Yahoo account. So, if you have also linked your email with your Yahoo account, then you just need to enter this pre-linked email on the password recovery page. Once the email gets verified, Yahoo will send the 6-digit recovery code on this email now. You just need to enter this code at the password recovery page and the you will get the option to reset your password after some time.
2. Use Security questions
If you have forgotten the password of your associated email as well, then you can recover your password via security questions. Yahoo asks certain security questions at the time of account set up. Although you won’t see the security questions option in your recovery options list but you can still skip the options till you get the security question window pop up. Once, you see the security questions; provide the correct answer to these questions. If all the answers are correct, you will get the password reset option.
3. View the password in password manager
Navigate to Google chrome and visit your browser settings. Then click on Auto fill tab and then choose the passwords tab. Here, you will find the entire sign-in history along with the passwords.
