Can't Access Yahoo - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as,,

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Todd Hyle · 16 April 2014 - 10:30

They changed Yahoo AGAIN! I am prompted to click to see the "all new Yahoo" then it says it has a problem loading. I find that since they started playing around with Yahoo 6 months ago I stopped opening with it. I switched to The Drudge Report and Google to get my news.

Alex Jeikner · 13 April 2014 - 12:03

For those who can't open any mails today (has bee happening to me since yesterday) - try accessing from your cell phone if you have such an option. It worked for me.

Janet Fitzpatrick-Wilks · 12 April 2014 - 16:32

Cant open anything. Totally unresponsive. It's sort of my junk folder anyway, but even so there are a few mails I need to get to. What's going on?

Annie Stewart · 12 April 2014 - 03:16

Yahoo will not open for the past several days. At first, it was just yahoo mail, but now it is all of yahoo. I use this site for work. What is going on, and how do I get to my emails? Yahoo is the crappiest site on the web.

Larry Poe · 11 April 2014 - 12:10

ive had my yahoo account for years, and all of the sudden the last 3 days it says my password is wrong. BS lol, im positive its due to the heartbleed deal... but I realy don't care, if I cant get back on it on the next day or two im just going to switch to Hotmail or some other email. sick of yahoo glitches

Paul Allee · 1 April 2014 - 15:27

Lately I've noticed that Yahoo has link problems daily - I mean, every stinking day. It's the worst website out there, I wish I didn't need it for stock boards. It stinks.

Russell Willman · 1 April 2014 - 15:06

Recently in Yahoo news, was posted a story about monkeys in India. Yahoo with its censorship being what it is wont allow the word monkey in the comments. Many comments had censored words which looks like this #$%$. I, being a fan of Jimmy Kimmel and Unnecessary Censorship, included the word monkey more than possible. Now I can navigate through the website, but I get an error message by the link to view comments. Sorry, we are having trouble connecting right now. Please try again. Am I being blocked?

Luke Jimerson · 1 April 2014 - 13:29

In Germany but American and always have used (USA). Now all of a sudden it's stuck on Yahoo Deutschland and I can't fix it... Help please? I've tried retyping my homepage, resetting my computer, and google, but nothing yet. Help needed please!

Every day I have problems loading my yahoo home page. It is very frustrating. I'm looking for another home page where I can catch up on news & daily events.

Patricia Cisco · 31 March 2014 - 15:32

I can see now why people crack up in this society! LOL! But really its no joke, you have deadlines, works schedules to keep then you put trust in a site like yahoo for its technology & boom for no apparent reason your site, your mail, outside link is frozen, gone, tool bar missing & some people actually have to use this site for work, try getting help from yahoo! LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL?! Well MY YAHOO mail site is certainly frozen, not my gamil but I really liked using yahoo, I guess if they can't fix it I can't, so I pray to God that all of YAHOO FREEZES UP! LOL!

Ben Hall · 29 March 2014 - 05:47

Dianne Ambrozy-Quast · 20 March 2014 - 09:10

Cannot get into pinochle, was in and then got the "popup" issue, unable to open because it operates in a "pop up" set computer to allow pops. Is it time to just abandon yahoo and the games that I've used for 15 years? Very frustrating anyone have any opinion of who to use? MSN???

Didier Grelin · 20 March 2014 - 08:51

Yahoo! Home page does not show any news stories also seems to have some issues, redirecting to Yahoo! HP

Makuta Nieves · 20 March 2014 - 08:49

For the past hour I have received lots of "Yahoo will be right back", or "our engineers are working on it", or simply the connection will not work. But it's intermittent, it works sometimes and sometimes doesn't. Mail is working fine for me, so it's only on the news and search parts of

Susan Jones · 20 March 2014 - 08:47

When i was on Yahoo earlier, every link i clicked on kept sending me to, and now trying go back to Yahoo, it keeps saying connection refused.

Annie Kiser · 20 March 2014 - 08:36

Hatin' Yahoo BIG TIME. Down again.
Yahoo Will be right back... Thank you for your patience. Our engineers are working quickly to resolve the issue.

Stan Fagan · 19 March 2014 - 17:16

You know what I think... Yahoo has been going down hill for a long time and I think there are people that want it to fall because they leveraged against it. I mean how could a company be so stupid. My God I have watched it just get worse and worse. We know it all stated with the email and now I can not get into Yahoo messenger. When you talk to them they tell you that it is your computer. There are going to be a lot of lying ass bastards out of work in about a year I would say unless they do something very different real soon. I have already quit using their mail. And now I have a new chat program. ooVoo .. I am going to try it tonight.

Rex Agyemang · 19 March 2014 - 04:29

I cannot open any link on my yahoo homepage. It has been like this for the past 3days. I think there is a bug in the Version 28.0

Susan Corkum · 18 March 2014 - 13:56

When trying to look at my website I get a white page with: "Error establishing a database connection" and no one is answering the phone I have been on hold for almost 2 hours. What's up!

Denis Langley · 18 March 2014 - 13:19

Can't get any of Yahoo's webpages up. Security issues, it says. Also they've managed to lose a few of my emails that were in my inbox recently and some I've had sent to me haven't arrived. Slow response is getting worse.

Muhammad Rizwan · 18 March 2014 - 07:41

I cant acess to any ot the webpage on yahoo. The last time it was warned that some suspicious activity is going on and i was told that there are security reasons for this blockage... Please help

Cheri Koglin · 18 March 2014 - 01:07

I cannot get in on my computer. It keeps telling me my username and pwd are incorrect. When trying to enter help.. it said my answers were incorrect, and then locked me out of that for 24 hours. When I try on my table, it says connection to the server failed!

Dorothy Ocacio · 17 March 2014 - 10:39

I havent been able to log in to my yahoo on any pc or laptop in about a week now... is it finally time to say goodbye to yahoo? What a pain in the ASS!

Michael Langley · 17 March 2014 - 09:30

Password changed and not working 24 hrs later. Comments are not displaying on the articles. Voting also not working on comments. Cannot get my mail.

Paul LJ Catlow · 14 March 2014 - 12:19

19:18 GMT, 14/3/14: cannot access any Yahoo services in Great Britain. problem appears to have been in place for 90 minutes. Anyone else?

Jean Callahan · 14 March 2014 - 07:56

Yahoo business mail account switches to regular yahoo mail. Some business mail shows up IN regular yahoo accounts. It's a mess and I can read my email only every now and then. Going on for several days.

Margaret Kendall · 13 March 2014 - 19:20

Unable to access for over an hour - yet again. Yahoo "loses" emails & has removed notifications bell from boards- who runs this company's IT system?

Don Coupez · 13 March 2014 - 18:23

I click links and it goes into a permanent wait status. What is wrong with your servers tonight Yahoo ?

Vlad Pole · 11 March 2014 - 21:11

No abuse, but missing business with all of yahoo problems... sad!
Site Builder password rejected, but same password works with Yahoo Mail?...

Who is in charge of Yahoo? Hire better educated people, please...

Gregory Scott Fournerat · 10 March 2014 - 13:24

Yahoo Mail Android App with worthless updates, unable to access server or some other stupid have to clear your cache to force it to work nonsense. Doesn't solve problem this time. So what does one do? Try to use your desktop system. Now the whole Yahoo is down and inoperable and this site says it is up. WTF?

John Patrick · 8 March 2014 - 09:24

Keep reading that Yahoo is up and working but it is not, I've waited patiently now, reported the problem numerous times and still no success, unless I go through 'Yahoo Canada'. Enough is enough for me, absolutely cheesed of with Yahoo.

Annie Lynn · 7 March 2014 - 15:17

They have too many issues, plus they limit the number of people you can mass mail, unlike gmail. I have had to switch to gmail for mass mailing people on my athletic list.

Debra Ann McLaren · 6 March 2014 - 11:56

I have not been able to get into my account for a week now and it is URGENT I access docs in my folders! I have e-mailed all the yahoo addresses and called all the numbers and no one is responding and all the call lines have been full for over a week! I got an error message that my acct may have been compromised and to call. No way to get thru. Now the message says my acct is being "recycled" and to create a new one because I have failed to access it for a period of time? WTH??? Anybody have an idea here??? UPSET AS HE**!!

Martin Knight · 4 March 2014 - 08:26

Yahoo mail is having some issues this morning. Don't know why this company has such a hard time delivering the G-darn mail.

David Rendell · 4 March 2014 - 08:08

Awful. Simply awful is the new Yahoo! Mail. It is getting to the point at which I will no longer be able to use it. Just because it is possible to create something new does not mean one should. i.e. if it's not broken -- leave it! A typical case of cyber techs getting carried away without any consideration for the end used.

Nerissa Baum · 3 March 2014 - 16:15

I'm just getting a basic white page with black/blue texts; no layout or anything to the page. Can't even load mail! Useless!

Mark Elder · 3 March 2014 - 15:22

Yahoo mail's send button just sets the email into the 'spinning wheel' mode. Also, I am unable to open my mail folders.

And, for what it's worth, I hate the 'new' Yahoo mail look, and I find it very difficult to sort through my inbox.

M.g. Mcmirn · 2 March 2014 - 01:03

Yahoo contact list cannot be loaded on iphone or Macbook, causing problems. And yahoo contact list on iMac had one third of it´s contacts. What´s the problem with Yahoo??

Phyllis Muse · 1 March 2014 - 14:55

I have been having problems with for sometime now. Stats page is not available. When it does load it takes 3 - 5 minutes for it to come up.

Craig Hartlove · 27 February 2014 - 14:12

I cannot believe the company is because Yahoo is having problems are having. It is out-of-control. Don't even want to discuss all the specific problems i have had. This column proves it. I think they should give up. So many Yahoo problems I cannot even itemize them

Valerie Watkins · 26 February 2014 - 12:57

Can not get on to Yahoo it keep crashing. Since this newest upgrade I have had nothing but problems.

Gloria Bornstein · 21 February 2014 - 18:57

3rd full day without any yahoo access and when I sent an email from another account it advised that my yahoo account of over 10 years does not exist and returned the email... I just can't believe this is happening...

JayMee Jean Jackson Richens · 21 February 2014 - 15:34

Secure Connection Failed. An error occurred during a connection to Peer's Certificate has been revoked. (Error code: sec_error_revoked_certificate)

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site. OBVIOUS CENSORSHIP AND TAMPERING!~

Yahoo is SUCH crap... I HATE that I ever trusted them!~

Deborah Juneau · 21 February 2014 - 13:07

Yahoo is running very slow!!! I can't do anything because of it being so slow. I would like to check my mail.

Gloria Bornstein · 20 February 2014 - 18:05

It has been 48 hours that I have been unable to sign in to my yahoo mail or mypage... have reported to Yahoo and will hope something gets done... very frustrating since it seems my life is locked up with calendar, notes, folders, etc all unavailable...

Joseph Darrow · 20 February 2014 - 09:10

Yahoo mail is down way too much! I seem to remember a charge on my credit card for the premium mail product. Shame on Yahoo!

Vicki Daigh · 20 February 2014 - 08:57

I can get to Yahoo home page and mail, but I can't get anywhere with the search engine. Am I the only one?

Laura Fitzgerald Knight · 19 February 2014 - 13:51

Yahoo kicked me off late last night and haven't been able to get back on since. Yahoo customer service couldn't take my call at that time and no reply to an email I sent last night through my other email address. Now FB is telling me my email address is invalid.

Ruth Wilbanks · 19 February 2014 - 09:50

Have not been able to access my yahoo mail since yesterday evening. When I go to yahoo it recognizes me as logged on and shows how many emails are waiting, but still asks me to enter my password, then rejects it. SO no access. When I go to yahoo help, it asks me to email my problem. Guess what folks, MY EMAIL IS NOT ACCESSIBLE!

Marilyn D'Auria · 14 February 2014 - 16:37

I've been prompted to change my password several times today, and then when i reset it, i get locked out of my account. Very frustrating!

George Rutkay · 14 February 2014 - 05:15 will not login with Chrome but it will with Firefox this morning, very strange since nothing has changed in my computer.

Larry Shreve · 12 February 2014 - 16:25

looks like Yahoo might have another malware issue: mail from Yahoo is being blocked
"Mail from IP was rejected due to listing in Spamhaus XBL"

Timothy Calvey · 12 February 2014 - 08:27

Cannot access Yahoo Small Business Email since last night, been waiting on phone for more than 2 hours

Jo Etta Hill · 11 February 2014 - 19:45

I can do everything except open emails in folders. Have to go to basic version of yahoo email to do that.

Elizabeth Olson · 10 February 2014 - 19:40

What is with the Yahoo's at Yahoo? The service stinks. This has been truly awful ever since they "improved' their service. It is down more than up and slow as a slug. Disgusting.

Larry Michael Garcia Sr. · 10 February 2014 - 18:27

Yahoo mail, lets me get into one email but I have multiple emails and I do pay for them. When trying to go from one email to another I the that oh freaken failed sign... Shit I spend alot of money with yahoo on many things, and think Ima move to another email service and move my urls also... Since they change the email couple months ago this service is just not reliable anymore and I conduct business and it hits my bottom line.. feeeeling reall pisssed right now

Bertha Chambers · 10 February 2014 - 15:38

No Navigation bar above emails in Inbox. I can't open emails or see previews. Yahoo then prompts me to use its Basic service. Amazingly, or rather not, the Basic UI runs 10x faster than the new UI.

William Bthere · 10 February 2014 - 15:25

Come on Yahoo, lets stop watching the Olympics and get the mail server up to par. Can log in, see messages but opening is another issue. It just hangs and nothing for over an hour. Upgrade your equipment and hire some folks to help get this fixed.

Debbie Whiteley · 10 February 2014 - 14:57

Open yahoo, click on email and it hangs, won't open email. What's wrong with this company that it's always broken.

Jinni Bradfield · 10 February 2014 - 14:05

Yahoo was working earlier today, but I can't get my emails to open or compose a new one. All my other browsers are working fine. Any suggestions?

Kimberly Kneier · 10 February 2014 - 12:16

I can access but not Yahoo mail. A photo of a cartoon baby pops up and says that it's overloaded and to try back later. This has been going on for 20 minutes. WT...???

Daniel Herrera · 10 February 2014 - 12:11

I have tried accessing my mail on yahoo for the past 15 minutes, and keep getting the same error. Unrelated or related, I am also experiencing issues with BofA's website as well.

Marla Evans · 10 February 2014 - 12:08

Message reads: "Sorry, we are over capacity. Please wait a moment and try again."
Along with a photo of a crying baby whicih just adds insult to injury. Seriously?

Donna Yates · 10 February 2014 - 12:04

Cannot access email, get to MyYahoo page only (which appears to be undergoing new design.) Redirected to, then to re-load, which doesn't. Several times over the course of a half hour. Using latest version of Google Chrome, internet connection and other email are all fine. Oh, yes, one more thing over the past two days, even though I have always logged out completely and uncheck "remember me" when logging in (even on home computer), the last several days Yahoo has been "remembering me from" the moment I load the Yahoo page. Even though just on home computer this is dangerous! I won't log in elsewhere on Yahoo unless I know that this has stopped!

Mandy Stafford · 10 February 2014 - 12:02

keeps telling me I we are over capacity, wait a moment for past 1/2 hour-tried different computers and search engines(Mozilla, internet, and chrome)
