Recovering your hacked Yahoo email account is quite easy, provided if you would have added account recovery options in your Yahoo account during the sign-up process or later on. Account recovery options mainly include adding your alternate phone number and email addresses to your Yahoo account, which comes in handy in case you forgot your password/username, or in case your account gets blocked or hacked by someone.
In such cases, Yahoo offers its users an opportunity to regain access to their accounts by resetting or changing account passwords using any of the registered account recovery options. In case you didn’t add any account recovery option it is almost impossible to access your Yahoo account.
So, for those who have added account recovery options to their Yahoo account and have access to it, you can easily recover your hacked Yahoo email account by following these steps:
Steps to Recover Hacked Yahoo Email Account
Enter your Yahoo email address on the Yahoo Sign-in page https://login.yahoo.com/ and click Next.
Now, click on the link I forgot my password located below the Sign-in button.
On the next screen, you will be prompted with one of the account recovery options, if you recognize the option and have access to it, click Yes, text me an Account Key. If you don’t recognize or if you don’t have access to the given option, click I don’t have access to this phone to get to the next account recovery option.
Once you receive the Account Key on your account recovery option (phone number or email address), enter it on the subsequent page and click Verify.
Once the Account Key is verified, you will see a Success message on the next window along with two options:
- Create a new password
Select Create a new password option to set your New Password. Once you have entered your new password on the displayed fields, click Continue.
Once your password is updated, you will be directed to the Account Recovery window. Here you will be able to change, remove or add your recovery email address or phone number. Once reviewed, click looks good. You have successfully recovered your hacked Yahoo email account.
