  1. i got a new phone and the other one is not active anymore and won't let me get into my account

    Get rid of the phone deal cause then users can't get into their accounts when they have a different phone

  6. Terrible account security!

    I changed my password last night, in case it had been compromised due to the "heartbleed bug." I selected no other options and made no other account changes. To my surprise (and dismay), when I turned on the computer and started the browser today, I was already logged in!

    Note well, that this NEVER occurred before I changed my password. It used to be that if I closed the browser, I would also be logged out, even if I didn't explicit click "sign out." That is how it should be, or at the very least, that should be an option.

  8. My Yahoo account was phished, and hacker created my Yahoo e-mail account. I need help deleting it.

    My Yahoo account was phished, and the hacker created my Yahoo e-mail account. I need help deleting the bogus e-mail account. I've tried several times over the YEARS to do this on my own, to no avail. Since I was not using Yahoo e-mail prior to the phishing attack, the bogus account is now my PRIMARY account, so I can't delete it. Suggestions?

  10. I was just disconnected from a call after waiting for OVER AN HOUR AND A HALF, before we were disconnected the customer service guy asked me

    I was just disconnected from a call after waiting for OVER AN HOUR AND A HALF, before we were disconnected the customer service guy asked me for my phone number incase it happened. Not surprisingly, I have not received a call back. My account has been hacked MULTIPLE TIMES, it is absolutely ridiculous that this keeps happening. As if the hacking wasn't enough, after wasting an hour and a half of my time, I am slapped in the face with ****** customer service. YAHOO... YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE MANY CUSTOMERS WITH THE WAY YOU HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS!!!

  13. Good day, I'd suggest reconsiderging to share users' info with other web links. Accounts being compromised every now and then.

    TOP URGENT

    Dear Sirs,

    You're kindly requested to have a thorough check on my account capt_lake@yahoo.com since I'm facing a strange error; I had to request help to access my account and was guided to reset my password. After resetting access is OK, but only once meaning the next time I'm trying to sign in there's no action, unless I reset my password again. I'm afraid there's a phishing or hacking about my account.
    Your kind concern and cooperation is highly appreciated, beforehand.

    Sincerely,
    Mohammad Mehdi Karimi (M.Mehdi Kairmi)

  18. Yahoo help is not useful for spam email being sent to contacts and there are no direct ways to contact Yahoo help

    Yahoo needs to provide a way for users to contact the provider for spam and hacked account issues. The phone number given disconnects for email issues and there are no customer support emails for users to contact Yahoo. The Yahoo help center does not address the issue well enough and I can't solve my problem of my email account sending spam to my contacts. It's embarrassing.

  19. Goodbye Yahoo, Hello Gmail "Your password should not be similar to the previous password." I am livid.

    I am livid because all i want to do is access my email to get some important messages. I came to the login and put my username and password and it tells me to make another password. This is my 8th time making a new password. But this time every password i put in it says its similar to my previous password, when its not i literally put 1k24l12j234E and it rejected it for being similar. FIX YOUR **** YAHOO!
