Remove or Add an Account recovery Method
Some days back I received plenty of questions on my blog that asked “I am locked out of my account” and “how to add or remove an account recovery option”.
If you have lost access to the email address and phone linked to your Yahoo account then chances of account recovery are very low. Users can add or replace up to 10 email addresses. It is highly recommended that you always keep an active phone or email associated with your Yahoo Mail account.

Step 1– In order to add a recovery option you need to go to the account security page.
Step 2– Once the webpage opens navigate to the Email address and Phone numbers section.
Step 3– Now tap on the ‘Add recovery phone number’ or ‘Add email address’ link then follow the prompts thereafter.
