I lost access to my email address

If your Yellow Card email address was compromised or you lost access to the account, you will need to go through some procedures to get your account back.

Getting started, you will need the following:

  • Access to your registered phone number on your Yellow Card account.
  • A clear image of your ID card.
  • A photo selfie with a paper note requesting to update your email address. Your old and new email addresses should be written on that note.
Here is a sample below:

Date: dd/mm/yyyy

I have lost access to my registered email address and hereby request that my Yellow Card email address be changed.

Old email address:

New email address:

Registered phone number:

Full name:


Write this note legibly on plain paper and take a clear picture while holding it close to your face. Attach the image alongside the image of your valid ID to an email with the subject: Request for change of email address and send to [email protected]

How long do I wait until I get access to my account?

It will take approximately 24 - 72 hours to complete, provided that you have access to your registered Yellow Card number and have provided all the details requested.

If you no longer have access to your Yellow Card phone number but have access to that same number on WhatsApp, it will still be possible to update your email address. 

Financially yours, Yellow Card.
