    Hi,

    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
    http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN2053&locale=en_US&y=PROD_ACCT

    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.

    Best Regards

        I'm never going to give you my mobile number because I don't have a mobile phone. PLEASE stop asking! t is clearly an option I don't want!

      • NobodyNobody commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You mean the password prompt WILL NOT be changed. Please don't insult my intelligence with your BS. Clicking the Remind Me Later does nothing. I am currently working to move my email account to another provider. Tired of being lied to and treated like an idiot.

      • AnonymousornotAnonymousornot commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The problem is far from "completed." I have had no meaningful suspicious activity in my account, which I have had since the "beginning of time." I do not have a mobile phone. As has become the rule, rather than the exception, I again had to go to Help in order to read my email. If it is so critical to change a password, which, as many people have noted does not stop the request, then being able to access the email, 'simply' by gong to the Help page itself, would not allow access. This is not to suggest that Yahoo! implement additional barriers to access for those quite content and safe with their existing passwords.

        It's ridiculous. I'm sending emails to people IN MY ADDRESS BOOK. Then, Yahoo thinks I have "suspicious activity" on my account, bounces back my emails as undeliverable and makes me change my password. I guess, after 20 years of use, I'm giving up on Yahoo and going to a less silly email program. This ******** sucks and has caused me massive amounts of frustration. FIX THIS ****.

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

        if so many people are suggesting the same thing maybe you should get the idea. the questions should stop immediately

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • BobBob commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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!!!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

        Priceless.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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 >,<
