Unable to open mail if traveling to another country provided a telephone number is given and you are unable to use that phone number while
I am unable to open my mail when traveling to another country due to yahoo security issue. I have provided my phone number. So when I login from a different country, yahoo is doubtful and prompt to send a code to the registered mobile number. What if I don't use my registered phone in the country where I am travelling ?. My registered phone may not work in a different country. That means you are lost the access if you provide your mobile number. SO DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR MOBILE NUMBER
Agreed. The new access restriction do not improve security; it is just a hassle for users. How stupid it is that a global concept like email over the Internet has been reduced to a localized marketing system that tries to collect unnecessary data like phone numbers for their already insecure database.
