re: Important security notice for your Yahoo account
In Response to the above subject matter:
We love that you love using your Yahoo Mail. And we want to make sure you always have the best experience. That’s why we’re reaching out today.
We’ve noticed that you’re using non-Yahoo applications (such as third-party email, calendar, or contact applications) that may use a less secure sign-in method. To protect you and your data, Yahoo will no longer support the current sign-in functionality in your application starting on October 20, 2020. This means that you will need to take one of the steps below to continue using Yahoo Mail without interruption.
But don’t worry, you have options. Find an option that works best for you below:
Option 1: We recommend that you access your email using our free Yahoo Mail app for iOS and Android or simply go to mail.yahoo.com to access Yahoo Mail on the web.
Option 2: Keep your current, non-Yahoo app, BUT follow a few steps to get it to sync with our secure sign-in method. The steps vary across different email applications, but in most cases, you will have to remove your Yahoo account from the app and then add it back again to update the sign-in security. Use the links below to follow the specific steps for your current application:
iOS Mail Gmail Samsung Mail Others
Option 3: You can generate a one-time, unique password that will allow you to sign in to your account using your non-Yahoo email application. Once created, this password will continue to allow your app to securely sync your Yahoo email unless you sign out (or are signed out) from your app. You can find instructions on how to do this here.
If you want more details on these changes, please visit our help page. If you’ve already taken action, we’d like to think you haven’t read this far, but if you have . . . we sure appreciate the diligence!
Thanks for rocking that Yahoo Mail address!
Yours in your inbox,

First of all, I don't appreciate u as a company monitoring my activities (that is a violation of my civil rights if I have not violated any polices pertaining to Yahoo). Second, I don't take threats likely, so, if ur company wants to be persistent in censoring and/or dictating to customers to what and how to utilize ur product when no violation has be done other than what "ur company doesn't like" the issue can be pursued down another avenue[s]. The choice is yours.
