It can be frustrating when you can’t get into your Yahoo Mail account, but most of the problems are easy to fix. Here are a few things you can do to solve your login problems.
Possible Reasons Why You Can’t Sign in to Yahoo Mail
Yahoo mail login problems can come from both the user’s side and the platform’s side. If you can’t get into your email account, it could be because the service is down or because you entered the wrong login information.
How to fix Yahoo Mail Login Problems
Try these things to figure out what’s stopping you from getting to Yahoo.
Find out wht’s going on with Yahoo Mail. If it’s down, no one can sign in anywhere. Someone probably told a site like Is It Down Right Now that it’s down. Check @YahooMail on Twitter or call them to see if anyone else has reported a problem. If Yahoo Mail is down, wait until the status changes and then check back.
Check to see if the Caps Lock key is on. Since Yahoo passwords are case-sensitive, nothing you type will work if Caps Lock is on. Turn it off and log in again if it was on.
Yahoo puts an icon in the password field that shows whether or not Caps Lock mode is on.
Sign in through the page for email. Do this if you can’t get into the main Yahoo login site. If you can’t sign in through the page for your email, use the main Yahoo.com site.
Check to see if your password is right. If you type in your password every time you use Yahoo, you could make mistakes. To see what you’re typing in the password field, click the eye-shaped icon.
Reset your password. If none of the passwords you remember work, start over.
Quit the browser and start it up again. It’s become a meme to turn it off and on again, but if you haven’t done that in a while, you might want to do that.
Clear the cookies or cache of your browser. When you browse the web, you may pick up and share bits of information that can affect how the browser works.
Change your browser. Different programs don’t always open the same site in the same way. Yahoo may have made some changes behind the scenes that make it work better on some browsers than on others.
