  1. Yahoo password change and login prompts


    I'm trying to help someone with an Iphone 8+.

    It all started with trying to send a webpage to email from Safari. It says you need to login to Yahoo before it can proceed. But Yahoo is already logged into.

    At the same time numerous unauthorized account key login confirmation requests were coming in to the phone.

    We tried to change the Yahoo password, but there is no option to change the Yahoo password that we can find. You can't do it from the login page by selecting "having trouble signing in", because the only alternative is to have an account key sent to the phone, not an option to change the password as you might normally expect.

    Google searches indicate If you go into the Yahoo account settings, there is a "change password" link in the security settings, but it no longer exists, either in the mobile app or desktop.

    :)

  2. Yahoo Password Change Question


    Glad to hear you got gmail off.

    Yes I'm suggesting you login to Yahoo, which it sounds like you have, and change your password. Then you will need that new password.

    I don't think Yahoo has same functionality as gmail, so mail on iPhone 4 is still there and that will be an issue unless you erase remotely and that only works when phone joins a cellular network.

    Phones should have password and in my opinion should be set to delete after 10 tries.

    As to remote deleting phone please read the link I provided. Apple provided a way to remove contents of lost phones connected to network.

  3. Going to local login broke ability login without password prompt

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    We understand how you feel about the situation. We're sorry for the trouble.

    1) Have you set up same password for both Microsoft account and local account?

    You can sign in either with Microsoft account or local account. I suggest you to change the password for both the accounts and check if it helps.

    1) Open settings and click on accounts.

    2) Click on Your email and accounts.

    3) Now in the right pane click on Manage my Microsoft account. It will redirect to your Microsoft account page.

    4) here click on change password and try to sign in again.

    You can also change password by clicking on Sign-in options in the left pane and choose change password in the right pane.

    If the issue still persists, you can follow the below steps.

    Please follow below steps:


      • Click on power button at left bottom corner, press and hold
        Shift key and click on Restart.

      • Click on Troubleshoot.

      • Click on Advanced options.

      • Click on Startup Settings.

      • Click on Restart.

      • Login to Microsoft Account and create a new administrator account.
    If you’re not able to login using Microsoft account then refer to below steps and check if it helps.

    Activate Inbuilt Administrator Account.

    Follow the below steps:


      • Click on power button at left bottom corner, press and hold
        Shift key and click on Restart.

      • Click on Troubleshoot.

      • Click on Advanced options.

      • Click on Command Prompt and enter following command.

        net user Administrator /active:yes
    Now reboot your system and login to inbuilt admin account and try to reset password for other account. Once you reset password login to other account and to deactivate inbuilt admin account enter following command in elevated command prompt.

    net user Administrator /active:no

    Hope this helps. Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
