Instructions for Recovering a Hacked Yahoo Account
- Go to https://login.yahoo.com/
- Click the "Trouble signing in?" or "I can't access my account" link and follow the instructions.
To protect against phishing scams, Yahoo users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, they should instead go directly to https://login.yahoo.com/ or use the Yahoo mobile app.
Also, Yahoo users may add two-step verification for extra security. Two-step verification is another layer of security that uses your password plus a code to verify your identity when they sign in to their accounts on a new, unrecognized device for the first time. Yahoo will send their cell phone a code by text or phone call that only they will have access to.
