    • Annoying and congesting floating toolbar on yahoo pages.

      Why is there no 'close' button? Hardly any of the content on the floating toolbar is useful and it takes up over 1/5th of the screen leaving a cramped feel when trying to read the news or mail or any other of yahoo's wonderful content. Get rid of the toolbar OR implement a close option to view the entire veiw of content on the page!! VERY ANNOYING

          Hi Joanne,

          Unfortunately, a mobile phone # is required for new accounts. Yahoo, and many other vendors now require existing users to add a mobile phone, as well as new registrants to help protect your account. Adding a mobile number to your account is an important account security step.

          https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN14992.html?impressions=true

          - Greatly reduces the risk of an abuser accessing your account.
          - If you need to recover your password, this is the safest and most effective method to recover it.
          - Yahoo will alert you through your mobile device when we suspect unusual login activity on your Yahoo account.

          Yahoo does not rent, sell, or share your personal information with other people or non affiliated companies, except to offer products or services you’ve requested. See our Privacy Policy for more detailed info on how we keep your information private.

                  • How Do you contact Yahoo.. You dont because they dont care what your opinion is.. otherwise How do you contact Yahoo....

                    make a button for feedback to a real employee and not this stupid blog ****.. I absolutely hate the auto play feature on videos.. If I want to watch a video I will watch it.. Do NOT start it for me.. What happens idiots is that when you got multiple screens open and they all start playing and the same time.. You get computer freeze ups and thats not necessary to have happen.. STOP THE AUTO PLAY BACK PERIOD.. If not then you deserve to loose money.. I wont buy a product that yahoo auto starts just off of principle..…

                            • Report Button

                              Articles are being posted with questionable reputability and intent.

                              Here is an example of one such article, which is advertising 3rd-party software for home router configuration:

                              https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/now-secure-home-wi-fi-network-just-one-190600114.html

                              The article is so offensive, that it has received nothing but negative feedback in the comments section. One such statement, is that the article itself is "Dishonest and unethical."

                              This led me to realize that Yahoo! articles do not have a REPORT function. This is crucial for user feedback, and expresses a level of unprofessionalism on Yahoo! News's part. There should be no excuse not to provide users with a way to contribute…

                              • A new, global contact sharing: Slipto

                                I would like to introduce you a new, fast & cool contact sharing platform, Slipto.

                                We have started our Kickstarter campaign, and we promise: "It has never been so easy to share your contacts, organize and update them."

                                We have developed a global platform which offers:

                                1) Instant sharing and access to all your contacts on any device (iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, PC) no matter where you are
                                2) When any of Slipto contacts updates its data – it will automatically update and notify all friends and partners - that were previously specified
                                3) Cool and attractive interface that makes…
