If you are not able to access your Yahoo Email Account even after entering the correct password, then there can be three reasons:
- Yahoo blocked your account after noticing suspicious activities in it.
- Someone hacked your account and changed your password.
- Entering the wrong username.
If you have checked and you are sure that you are entering right username and password, then Yahoo may have blocked your account. In such case, you can wait for a couple of hours to try logging in again. If you have tried that too, then, unfortunately, someone would have hacked your account and changed the password.
In such case, resetting the password can help you regain the access to your account quickly and easily.
