by Lucy Price Lucy Price
Yahoo mail services have been in use for quite some time now and offer high quality of mailing facilities which helps in easing both novice and expert computer users. Another benefit Yahoo users have is the prompt and responsive customer team easily reachable via Yahoo customer support email. They have one piece of advice for all their users that they all should have alternative email address and phone number attached to their original email address.

An alternative email address or phone number can help you in numerous ways. One of the most uses of this is that you can easily prove your identity if you are locked out of your email id. You will receive verification email or text message that can help you to confirm your identity. Another reason for having another email id attached to your main account is that you can easily login even if you forget your sign in info. You can also email Yahoo customer support in case you are still unable to get into your account.

Create an alternative email id:

1. First sign-in to your Yahoo account with your login credentials.
2. After successfully logging in go to Account security.
3. In case, this is your first alternative email address, then select ‘Add Recovery Email Address’. However, if you have already created an alternative email id, then select your listed email option.
4. A pop window will appear. In this type in the email id in the space provided. If this is your second alternate email id, then select ‘Add Recovery Email Address’.
5. Now send a trial verification email, click on ‘Send verification email’ tab.
6. Go to your alternate email inbox and locate an email having ‘Please Verify Your Alternate Email Address’ as the subject.
7. Open the email and click on the verification link.
8. Now click on Verify button.

Now your alternative email address is created successfully. Ensure that you have verified the email address as that will help you in future to get your identity verified if you are unable to login to your original email id. If you do not receive the verification link or for some reason your email is not verified even after clicking on ‘Verify’, then immediately contact the support team through Yahoo customer support email.

Add a mobile number: After performing the first two step of Create an alternative email id follow the given instructions below carefully:

1. Select ‘Add recovery phone number’ option.
2. This will open a pop-up window. In case you already have a number set in your account, select the existing mobile number option.
3. Now type in the mobile number you would want to use in the space provided. In case, this is your second phone number, select the option ‘Add Recovery Phone Number’
4. Now select either ‘Send SMS’ or ‘Call me’ option.
5. You will receive a verification code either through SMS or phone. Enter this code in the space provided.
6. Then click on Verify.

The above two methods ensure that if in future you ever end up in trouble of being logged out or blocked from your original email address, you can verify and confirm your identity easily and access your email without any hassle. In case you are unable to successfully verify your alternative email address or number, you can email Yahoo customer support and get to the bottom of the issue. If the customer support is busy and the number you have been trying has put you on hold, you can try online directories like contactforhelp and acquire another customer care number of Yahoo.
