Yahoo is undoubtedly at the top when it comes to working with emails. With outstanding features and top-notch security, Yahoo guarantees complete user satisfaction. But sometimes, things can turn upside down, especially when Yahoo account recovery becomes complex for some users.
Yahoo generally offers two ways to get back to your lost account or to reset your password if you’ve forgotten it.
Recover Yahoo account with phone number
Recover Yahoo account with email address
If you are not familiar with these methods to recover your account, you can read this guide: All Possible Ways to Recover or Reset Yahoo Password which talks about how to recover your Yahoo account easily if you have access to your linked phone number or address recovery email.
But the main concern of most Yahoo users is what happens if they have lost access to their alternate phone number or email address or have not linked any recovery information to their Yahoo account; and if said accounts are recoverable or not.
If that’s the case for you too, read on to find out how you can recover your Yahoo account without a phone number or email address.

Steps to recover Yahoo account without phone number or email address
Follow the instructions provided to recover or retrieve your Yahoo account and reset your password without using your linked phone number or email address:
- Go to www.yahoo.com
- Press the ‘Login’ button located in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Then type your username, email address or mobile phone number linked to your Yahoo account and press ‘Next’.
- On the next page, where you need to enter your password, click on ‘Forgot Password’.
- If you are asked to verify your phone number, click ‘I don’t have access’.
- Then, if you added security questions when you created your Yahoo account, you’ll have the option to answer them to recover your account. If you remember the answer, write it down and click ‘Check’. If you don’t know the answer, click ‘I can’t answer this question’.
- If in case you added more than one security question, you can skip the previous one and answer the next one (since I had added 2 security questions to my Yahoo account, so I had the option to answer any one). Enter the answer to the security question and then click ‘Verify’.
- Once this is done, you will be allowed to create a new password for your account. After that, you can sign out and then sign in to your Yahoo account with the new password.
That is the only option by which you can recover your Yahoo account without using any recovery phone number or email address. However, this option may not work for you if you haven’t added any security questions to your Yahoo account.
Also, according to Yahoo’s official page, security questions are no longer considered a safe recovery option so users have been advised to remove them or Yahoo will remove security questions when user adds any phone number or recovery email address to your account.

Recover your account with Yahoo Plus support
Another option for Yahoo account recovery if you’ve lost access to your phone number or email address and can’t reset your password is to get live customer support for Yahoo. You can contact Yahoo support officers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 800-305-7664.
But here is a catch. This option is only for users of Yahoo Plus (Yahoo’s paid service). If you’ve upgraded to Yahoo Plus, you can call them directly for live support, even for a minor issue like changing your password.
Yahoo Social Media Identifiers for help and support
The last option to recover your Yahoo account without a phone number or email address is to contact the Yahoo support team using your social media handles. You may or may not get a response from them, but it’s better to try something instead of getting frustrated about losing access to your Yahoo account.
Here are the links to all the Yahoo social media pages:-
