Hi just a quick question

Mrs has iphone 5s I setup a yahoo account in mail on her phone just for us..... and it works ok no issue however I cant find the password and she claims i didnt tell her mmmm, there is a phone number that is linked to account for recovery, hurrah but its for my old work number that has long since gone :-(

I have been going round and around on yahoo web site, in their help (joke) area trying to find a way to update phone recovery on the email account it looks like its only available if you log in to web page or use the yahoo app, well as we dont know password we cant log on to either.

The only thing i can think of now is to see if there is a way that the iphone will give up the password in the settings ? does anybody know if this is possible ?

The reason this came about yahoo have emailed mrs to say she ought to upgrade to 2 part authentication etc, which is a good idea.
