Fix Account Key code receiving issues

Yahoo protects your account by using a secure and personalized code called Account Key. Use these suggested fixes if you don't receive the Account Key notification when signing in, verifying info, or resetting your password.

Didn't receive an Account Key?

Click Resend SMS within the first 5 minutes. If you still don't get the code, check the following:

  • Used a landline - SMS codes can only be sent to mobile numbers.
  • Contact info is wrong - Make sure your mobile number or alternate email address is correct.
  • Device problems - Make sure your plan has not reached its sending data limit.
  • Email problems - Make sure your alternate email address hasn't been deleted, the email isn't in your spam folder, and Yahoo isn't blocked by your ISP.

Other Account Key issues

  • Verification link is no longer valid - The code has expired and you need to request a new one.
  • Can't get an Account Key because you forgot your password and recovery info is wrong - You'll have to create a new account.
