Stop asking to change password and stop asking for my cell phone number EVERY TIME I log in.
Stop asking to change password and stop asking for my cell phone number EVERY TIME I log in.
NO ONE FORCES me to change my password; to **** with you yahoo
Every few weeks I get "Change your password" or "Make your password more complicated". I AM HAPPY WITH MY PASSWORD... LEAVE ME ALONE...
Why can't you give us the option to select "Never ask me again". It is so annoying to have to click continue, skip for now, skip for now, every single time I log into my email.
This is getting so annoying I will probably shut down my email soon and use a different instead. Good job customer service, for ignoring this issue for so long after so many people have complained!
Constant suggestions to change my password really bothers me. What should I do not to be asked those questions everytime I log in?
Sometimes when I try to access mail, it demands I create a new password. I'm happy with my 13-digit password but there is no escape. I have to change it. Over and over again. Very inconvenient as you can imagine, or not.
stop asking to change password and mobile phone. once is enough.
my password is strong and i do not have mobile phone - no need.
We do not like the new scramble letter type in the letters in both upper and lower case. You did this without any warning. Get rid of it.
I AM SICK AND TIRED OF YAHOO FORCING ME TO CHANGE MY PASSWORD AND SENDING ME "SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY" ON MY ACCOUNT WHEN I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF IMPORTANT BUSINESS. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO TO GOOGLE MAIL TO GET RID OF THIS NONSENSE.
Please STOP requesting me to change my password. I have enough problems remembering the ones I have now, let alone changing them and trying to remember a new one.
When are you going to STOP asking for my phone# when I log in for mail??.....ever since your'e ***** CEO arrived....********...your'e not getting my phone#.........
please stop asking me to change my password and stop asking for my cell phone. Only one word for this. It's called harassment.
I do NOT own a Cell Phone
Yahoo fowled up it's own security and demanded a new password and now you requires a cell phone number.
To put it bluntly, if you ask me for a cell phone number one more time, I will terminate my email account as soon as my paid subscription expires. MY CELL PHONE IS NONE OF YOUR **** BUSINESS.
If yahoo responds with the statement below, I will just dump you immediately. Get it thru your dense heads that we as customers are FED UP with your cell phone demands. Have a great day!
Unfortunately, you may be required to occasionally change your password to your Yahoo account. This is simply a precaution to make sure that your account is fully secure. Please see the following help article for additional information:
Why Yahoo may prompt you to change your password
Adding a mobile number to your account is the easiest way to verify yourself as the account holder if necessary. For more information on this request please take a look at our help article below:
Why am I being asked to provide a mobile phone number?
Yahoo has made me change my pass word so many times that I don't know what it is myself any more. Please stop it's ok to suggest that I change it but as long as I know the one I have now let me in with out changing it
Stop F***ing asking me for me to enter my phone number when I sigh in. There is NO REASON YOU NEED IT!
I see a lot of angry ppl on this forum asking to stop repeatedly ask them for something they don't want to give or don't even have, so I don't understand why don't you change this option? You will probably lose many users over this.
I'm not given an option Remind me later like you answered in other similar requests, rather I have to press skip every day, and it's really annoying. And two weeks which you wrote isn't long enough time, it should be at least a month, or even more. You should also have an option 'I don't have a mobile phone' and you can remind the ppl who choose that option after one year, not earlier.
I have a google account also and because of your constant requests I am slowly switching to them. Where I would usually give my yahoo address, now I give google. I am sure that I'm not the only one. So if you won't listen to so many people who have the same request, you will lose a lot of users.
Stop asking for my mobile phone number , and stop asking me to change my password. I will never give you my telephone number. ENOUGH !!
What a bunch of good for nothing losers!! Read your reviews ******. No one likes what you are doing!!!!
Please remove your password and cell phone prompts!
stop asking me to change my password i am fine with it and if i try to change it to something i can easy remember it will not let me ,stop .
Can you stop the password assistance on my account...I have a strong enough password and will not change it. Also, no need to add a cell backup number. Thanks!
Don't force people to change their passwords in order to enter their account that could have been someone hacking me. I just changed my password not too long a go and I liked it very much, if I didn't have so many things connected to my yahoo I would delete it because that just got on my nerves so bad especially since i just checked my email earlier changing a password should be optional
Will you please stop asking for phones and other information, it becomes so slow and annoying to me and my email, thanks fowardly
Please stop this request for new password and phone # info. It is annoying and going to cause me to go to GMAIL. There should be a way to cancel this fing silly ****. -I just want to get to my email quickly
stop asking for mobile # ... don't have one
Please stop asking me to change my password and give a cell phone number. I don't want to give a cell phone number. My password is fine and doesn't need to be changed.
I dont want to change my password, my password is perfectly fine, this account receives couple of emails, please stop the notification to change it.
How do it remove that so my password stays as it is and I don't get the annoying notification that I have to skip every time I log on.
Forcing me to change my password. I just changed it a few weeks ago, and I don’t want to change it again. Quit making it mandatory at sign on please.
Stop asking me for my mobile phone number. I will never give it to you. If you keep asking, I will close this account use Google Mail.
I am sick of having to click through 5 different screens to get to my email, I do not wish to change my password and I do not wish to provide my mobile number. Please stop asking me or I will find a new email provider. Good day.
Stop asking me to change my password.
Stop asking for my cell number.
Please stop asking to change our password every time I log in. When I do change it never takes effect and you keep on asking. Let us change our password as we determine the necessity.
Stop asking to change my password and for my cell number or I will drop Yahoo mail because it is a pain ********** to navigate the extra pages every time I sign in.
STOP ASKING ME FOR THINGS WHEN I SIGN IN TO MAIL!
PLEASE stop asking me to change my password and provide a mobile number EVERY time I sign in to yahoo mail.
This is annoying enough to make me change mail providers
Yahoo users understand the security risks, please provide an "opt-out" or a "no thanks" option. Presenting this screen at each login is simply a way for Yahoo to harvest mobile numbers. Transparent and obvious data harvesting from your existing users. Shameless...
When I log in I keep getting a three diff screens b4 reaching mail. 1st to continue-(which I want to), 2nd-to chg psswd-(don't want to), 3rd to add cell #-(I don't have a cell at this time). I would just like to go straight to mail and maybe occasionally questions, not every login!!
Please stop harrassing me in my accounts every day. I'm NOT changing my password and NOT giving you my cell phone no
Stop asking for my mobile phone I will not give it to you
Stop asking for me to change my password. If I want to change it I WILL!! I don't need the stupid splash screen every time I log in AND I WILL NEVER GIVE YOU MY CELL PHONE NUMBER. You think you can be trusted with ANY OF MY PERSONAL INFORMATION? Think again. Turn OFF THE SPLASH SCREENS!!!
Stop making me try to put in a mobile number everytime i log in WTF i will start using Gmail if this dont stop
ENOUGH WITH THE ASKING US TO CHANGE OUR PASSWORD AND FOR A CELL PHONE NUMBER EVERY FRICKING DAY!!!
I do not wsh to change my password. I believe it fits the criteria you suggest. Please stop asking me to change it.
leave me alone,stop harassing me. i just changed it
Stop asking me to reset my password. A few times is enough, but every time forever is not cool.
Please quit asking me to improve my password and add my mobile number. I should not have to provide you a mobile number for email access.
The title says it all
How long to you plan to continue to prompt us for passwords/phone numbers? Most of us know better than to enter this sort of information in a login prompt. We aren't going to provide that information there. Please, please STOP with this prompts! I agree with another user that I'm leaving Yahoo mail soon if this doesn't stop.
It is not necessary for Yahoo to have my mobile number. Also, I will change my password when I want to. The repeated requests for this information is irritating. I am very close to closing my accounts with Yahoo, if this does not stop.
Yahoo, how many times are you going to ask us to change our email address and ask for a mobile phone number??? What is wrong with Yahoo???
The incessant prompt to "change your password" and "add your mobile number" was ANCIENT about ten days ago. I DO NOT NOW, NOR WILL I EVER HAVE A "MOBILE" TELEPHONE NUMBER!!!! Get a clue -- -- some of us actually have a life, and don't need or want a mobile phone, or live on FaceTube, and we're not TWITS!
Leave us alone unless we ask you!
AS I SAID IN TITLE , WHY THE FUCK DO YOU NEED MY PHONE NUMBER??? AM I ON SURVEILLENCE OR ARE YOU HORNY AND DON"T HAVE ANYONE TO SPEAK WITH???
I AM TIRED TO WRITE LETTERS AND CHAPTAS IN PASSWORD VERIFICATION BOXES!
Seriously? I just changed my password recently. It's random with numbers and different cases. Quit ******* asking me to change my password. If you can't keep **** secure, figure it out. Don't ask me to bail your *** out yet again, you douche bags.
Stop trying to force me to change my password and give you a cell phone number. Yahell is starting to remind of microsuck....and microsuck....well they suck!
When I log in I am asked for a mobile number. I do not have one. I do not text. I am not on facebook. I do not twitter.
Stop asking for a number that I do not have. I can give you an alternate email address, Yahoo, Gmail, aol, earthlink my firm emial.
Give more options or stop asking for something I do not hav or do.
Everyday I am harassed with having to click 4 or 5 times to get to my email. All because the douchbags on yahoo want to insist on data mining, This is not about helping us be more secure, its about collecting more information Even when I type in the correct password, I have to reclick it to take as they spit it back as an error. What scum you bums are. And to think I actually have a suscriber paid account.
Help us keep your account safe
Recently, there's been a rise in security incidents on the web. While we continue to work hard to keep Yahoo's network secure, we're asking users to help us keep their accounts safe.
Change your password
Strengthen the security of your account with a new password.
You must create a password.
Confirm new password
Add your mobile number
It’s the easiest way to recover your account and keep it safe. We’ll only use this number for account security and to let you know if we detect unusual activity.
Country Code for mandatory mobile number
Stop trying to get people to give you a cell phone number! I am not giving you ANYTHING! And you will not force me to change my password like monkey-microschmucks did! Yahoo's days are limited of you keep this commie **** up!
I'm not interested in changing my password and UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES FOR ANY REASON AT ANY TIME WILL I DIVULGE MY MOBILE PHONE NUMBER. STOP ASKING. YOU'VE STOLEN ENOUGH CRAP.
And no, I will not give you my phone number to verify or protect my account.
I recently changed my password and, frankly, I'm not willing to change it again. What if I don't have a cell phone? I'm tired of clicking skip, skip, every time I log on.
What is wrong with Yahoo asking for a cell phone number almost every week??? If someone doesn't have a cell phone number the first week of the month, what makes Yahoo think one will have a cell phone number on the fourth week of the month??? This is an annoying extra step every few weeks; why doesn't Yahoo ask a maximum of 2 time a year rather than every other week??? Is Yahoo just trying to annoy their customers; no wonder so many of my friends are moving to Gmail.
STOP NAG ME to change PASSWORD - I will never change, but I will happily go to other email provider, if Yahoo don't stop this HARASSMENT and never ending NAGGING to change password, it never going to happen !
Please discontinue or have option to disregard the "Help us keep your account safe"/ "Change Password"/"Add mobile number" screens after sign in.
Every couple of weeks for the past few months, Yahoo has been requiring me to change my password. This is INCREDIBLY annoying seeing as I am very busy and it is very difficult to remember all my different passwords already, so it makes it A LOT MORE DIFFICULT for me when I have a different password every few weeks for my email. It should by my own choice to change my password.
I also really don't appreciate being woken up in the middle of the night (4:30am? Really?) for something unimportant. Was that seriously necessary? I mean, 4:30am. REALLY. SERIOUSLY.
I really would rather not have to go through the trouble to create another main email address on another site, so can we fix this BS? I've been using Yahoo since I can remember, and it's always been fantastic until the last year or so. FIX THIS.
Easy, quit with the endless requests to have me change password and give you my mobile number
My password has not been hacked in the 17 years I have had it. You will NEVER get my phone number. So, STOP asking for both!!!!!
Stop asking me to create a new password EVERY SINGLE time I log in. I changed my password after heartbleed, I don't want to change it again. And,please stop asking for a phone number. If I wanted to give it to you, I would. An opt out option would be nice.
Quit asking me to change my password and add a mobile phone number when I sign
yahoo needs to find another to protect my acc besides me having to change my password every day
The password change prompt cannot be disabled. You will need to change the account password to remove the prompt. If Yahoo is asking you to change your password, it means suspicious activity was detected with your account. Learn more here:
Why Yahoo may prompt you to change your password
To further improve the security of Yahoo accounts, we’ve been prompting our users to add an optional mobile phone number to their Yahoo account. By providing this info, you’ll be alerted of any changes made to your account immediately via your mobile phone, and you’ll have a quick way to recover your password should you need to in the future.
If you would rather not provide that information, click “Remind Me Later” rather than closing your browser window. This will ensure that you won’t be asked to provide your mobile phone number or alternate email address again for another two weeks if you’ve changed the password.
i feel you had no **** business making me change my password, so i am history and Facebook will learn of this BS, the whole world will know when i am dune, you should not of ****** me off
If you, Dan, were commenting on my post, what the **** makes you think that Ken Worth is my actual name?? First off, it's kenworth860. And second just because I drive a kenworth, doesn't mean I have to be named that. If that's the case I bet your middle name is Prius. If it was not a comment meant for me, then excuse me for being defensive. I apologize. Anyway, I've had the same id and password for over 30 years and I'm not about to change for the likes of Yahoo, which seems to be always changing something and not always for the better.

Just use security questions. Put enough possible security questions that a person who might not have ever had a pet, or doesn't know the answer to some other one will still have plenty of choices. You don't have to go out and re-invent the wheel. Just do the thing that doesn't annoy the H out of people and keep asking for a phone number.
15 to 20 years ago most people would have thought your answer was correct that you could not turn off the annoying request. Most of us know better these days. Please stop lying to us and turn off the annoying log in mess. I will drop my account before I will ever give you my phone number. There are plenty of other places I can turn to for a free e-mail account.
Not even close to an appropriate response.
if so many people are suggesting the same thing maybe you should get the idea. the questions should stop immediately
as others have observed, yahoo is feeling more and more like some kind of tyrannical and over controlling dictatorship. But they are not alone- now we are seeing the kind and caliber of the people who want to exploit the web and us users as if we were all just little faceless nameless unimportant parts of their evil master plan, lol. But really it's not so funny. It will eventually implode as it's untenable and unacceptable mistreatment of the masses.
oh aren't you so micromanaging our lives! for one thing, MANY people DO NOT HAVE A MOBILE PHONE!!!!! and really, your nags are just offensive, if we don't want to change our password, then you shouldn't keep trying to force it regardless. After all it's our life not yours- and it seems after reminding us for a month of logins, then you should set a limit and let it expire.
Over and over I change the password. I do not care if there is suspicious activity or not. nothing in my e-mail that private. I do not text so you cannot send me a message. Enough!!!
This e-mail response to this complaint, was automatically sent by Yahoo itself, to my Spam Folder! That's absolutely awesome, Yahoo. You decide your own responses are junk. I think you got the point.
Yahoo Admin: If you search my IP address, you will find that I am the originator of this thread.
I need to ask you to please define "suspicious activity" for me. After defining it, please go into detail why you say that if I click "remind me later" after I change my password that I "won't be asked to provide (my) mobile phone number or alternate email address again for another two weeks". Is this an implication that there will be MORE "suspicious activity... detected with (my) account" and that I should "...add an optional mobile phone number to (my) Yahoo account" in the near future again?
To the Yahoo admin that is reading this, you really should be flustered, as the words typed in the initial response IS TANGLED IN HYPOCRISY and should therefore be considered UNWORTHY OF A PROPER AND JUSTWORTHY REMEDY TO MY ISSUE.
"May your best regards be muddled in a sea of politically correct hypocritical lies and hidaways."
Further, do not respond to my post until you have a REAL remody for my "issue".
Of least regards;
Irritated Anonomyous User >,<
stop asking me to change my password if I want to change it I will also why would you need my phone number that has nothing to do with my email address,,,,duh

To Ken Worth
The fact that you will use your real name is your right.
If I comment on an article or on one of the comments on an article
I may post What I Know or feel are Fats.
What I know or feel is incorrect grammar or usage.
And my Opinions on a Topic or Post.
I might post _The History of_ The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of The United States of America.
I suggest one should do a websearch for the Facts.
If I state that I at over 65 will avoid being in a place or at the point in the program where I am _Expected_ to recite The Pledge.
I will not that if this is "A Nation with Liberty ...for all. That should be my right.
I will note that there is a World War II Warner Brothers Cartoon in which Uncle Sam explains to Pokey Pig why he should know and recite The Pledge To The Flag of The U. S.
which does not contain "Under G-d".
I was added in the 1950's

Do not have a CELL Phone.
I am not using my real name. address, etc.
Why do you think I would provide YAHOO! with a Valid Telephone Number?
I changed my password twice, and yet Yahoo continued to ask me to change my password. I used to be a strong supporter of Yahoo. I thought Yahoo was freedom from AOL. That is how long I have been using Yahoo. But for the last few years it feels like a dictatorship and not an internet home page that offers a service to the public that are their customers. Even though we don't pay them directly, they are paid based on the traffic on their pages. The traffic is us. Their customers. Who are being treated worse with each passing year. They make changes to the home page and to the mail that make us have to re-learn how to use the site. Sometimes lose important emails in the process. When you call for help you are treated like an idiot when its they who have created the problem in the first place.
Now they insist on having our cell numbers? NO! I don't think so. I will go to Google or some other before I give up that information. You do not TELL me what to do Yahoo!
"The password change prompt cannot be disabled" This is totally false. The program can be changed if Yahoo wants to change it. Yahoo also ignores the fact that some people neither have nor want a cell phone.
It appears that Yahoo cares nothing about their customers or what their customers want.
I understand the necessity of keeping our passwords secure. But once you have our password we should not have to give it again every couple weeks. That's just plain annoying and frustrating. If one knows how to use email then they sure should know how to keep their mail secure and private. Quit taking things into your hands that we are very capable of handling. Thanks.
I do NOT have a cell phone of any kind-----nor do I ever plan to have one! PLEASE stop asking me for a phone # I do not have! Not everyone is technically up-to-date with the latest technology nor do we want to be! Quit annoying us.
This response is rediculous. I am NOT changing my password or give my mobile number. Even if you change it today it will ask you again tomorrow. Is Yahoo nuts?
cliff trudeau commented
With all the nonsense coming thru..piggy backing thru unwanted ads and then Yahoo requesting a phone number raises an eyebrow.
For one I live off grid and no cell phone reception at all. To ask for one is ludicrious as I would have to drive 15 miles and back 15 miles for a prompt that lasts mere minutes.
I change my password every so often to self protect myself. mainly from scammers and phishers invading our open computers. Microsoft screwed us all with windows 8
