The Yahoo product feedback forum now requires a valid Yahoo ID and password to participate.

You are now required to sign-in using your Yahoo email account in order to provide us with feedback and to submit votes and comments to existing ideas. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

How can we improve Yahoo?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  2. Allow users to reuse old passwords. Allow me to vote for all of the other requests to allow users to re-use passwords

    My father periodically locks himself out of his account and I have to help him regain access. I want to keep using the same password, which he has memorized, but Yahoo won't let me. Instead, every time he fat fingers his password and accidentally sets a new one that he also fat fingers and has no memory of what he set, I have to create yet another one and update all of his e-mail clients on his laptops and hope we don't repeat the cycle the first time his cell phone tells him he has to enter his (new) password…

  3. recovery

    Your recovery system has a bug for Turkish telephone numbers. Adds an extra 0 so SMSs sent fail. The field asks for a 10 digit phone number, but adds the proper prefix +90 and an additional 0.

  5. The new signon page listing all my email accounts is terrible. How can we turn this off?

    Several people use my PC. I don't want them to see all the email accounts I use, along with easy access to sign on with saved passwords, and I don't want to see theirs. This has to be optional - and easy to turn OFF!

    Please stop bombarding me with security checks. You have made email, which is supposed to be convenient, a miserable and laborious endeavor. Today I wanted to check my email, but OH NO, i used a new device. So first I have to log into a different email to enter a 4 letter security code, which of course doesn't work, three times with three different codes. Then I get locked out and have to use a different device. This time the code works but it tells me that I have to update my password. Then I have to connect a phone.…

  7. Make the two-step verification OPTIONAL ONLY

    When traveling abroad, I used my brother's computer to access Yahoo Mail like I've always done for years, and this time it wanted to send me a security code to my telephone. Problem is, it cost me $5 in roaming. And what if I had no access to my phone? Dead battery, no network, left phone elsewhere, etc,, many issues can prevent us from having access to our phone at a precise moment. Yahoo says that another option is a secondary email address..., but aside from the fact that that other provider could request the same, why should I be…

  8. Provide better customer service. Why do I have to get an account key every time I try to access my email? I didn't sign up for this.

    Have actual people help us with our situation instead of "ROBO" messaging. You talk about you care about your customers, you're really not showing it.

  11. Add 2 step authentication to AT&T/Yahoo email account login.

    I have 2 step authentication enabled on a Yahoo.com account, but when I try to add it to my AT&T / yahoo account, I can't seem to find where this can be done. With all the yahoo security issues as of late, surely this option should be available to the AT&T accounts.

  14. Can't remove secret account from list in the "sign in" feature. So, now my teens might accidentally sign out then sign back in to the secret

    Can't remove secret account from list in the "sign in" feature. So, now my teens might accidentally sign out then sign back in to the secret account where my wife and I keep our nudes. And the sign ins aren't even password protected once on the app. Plus, deleting and reinstalling won't remove the accounts from the app. Epic fail Flickr!!!!!
