    Yahoo mail account is blocked in my Android mobile but it works well on my PC

    I tried loggin in to my Yahoo mail account with Yahoo mail app in Android but whenever I try to do that it just says “Your account is locked”. What does it mean? When I try to open it from my PC it just works fine. Have anyone faced this issue before? Any idea how to fix this problem?

    Hi,
    The problem might be due to the application in order to get rid of this issue you have to open the application drawer and then select the option as "Settings" inside the settings menu you will be able to find an option as "Applications" select that and then select the option as "All Applications" there you will be able to find the Yahoo mail Application select that and then clear the data and cache of the application doing that will help you make the application to its default settings now add the Account and see if you have any problems if the problem persists then uninstall the application and then install the application again.
    Hope this Helps.

    this error usually occurs when multiple failed sign in attempts being made to your account.
    to resolve this error you need to relogin to your yahoo account from desktop

    Please follow the steps below from a desktop (or laptop) computer:

    1. From a desktop or laptop computer, visit the yahoo webpage (www.yahoo.com)
    2. if
    you are already signed in, sign out and then sign in again.


    you use can use your app without any problem.
