I would like to be able to update my password easily. It could be accessed from both the "Add or Manage My Accounts" and "Settings". I could click on "Update Password" and create a new one.

Why isn't the settings panel clearer? Where do you find the Change Password link? Too invisible. Very bad

Dear Sir/Madam, I have made it into my repsinec account after two unsuccessful attempts. I had the exact same,problem this morning. Apparently the password which I have always used since I signed up to that account has become wrong. Now I want to change my password and cannot find the "change password" option. Please fix this problem asap.
Thank you very much,
Mateo Rodriguez aka M. de P.

If you EVER force me to change my password again, I will leave Yahoo forever. I am FURIOUS that I have had to do this again. It is MY ACCOUNT and MY INFORMATION. I should be able to CHOOSE whether I change it or not. Now I'll have to change it every time I have to sign in because I will never remember it.

Hello dear yahoo mail. I don't really like the way I sign in. It is always ask the new pass code which sent me by text message. It is annoying takes too much time. I don't receive a text Unless I wait 60 seconds and click resend button. I have no idea about what was my password when I start yahoo mail.

OMG! It's horrible to try to change! I've been on it for 45 minutes and still cannot get it changed! I have to prove I'm not a robot and then it gives me an account key and it still will not allow me to change it, even after I've proven time and time again I AM NOT A ROBOT!!!! I will delete the darn account today just because it is SOOOO USELESS!!

Changing your password or simply locating it shouldnt be so hard for old bastards like me ..I needed the password to reset my new phone and couldnt find it ....
Need to have the setting user friendly. simple to under stand and be able to find things. LIKE finding change password.

Look, I know you guys screwed up and let someone hack millions of emails, but in your effort to fix the problem you've created a lot of unnecessary inconveniences. Every few times I log in I have to recreate a password because I don't remember all passwords. I rely on you to remember these. Time is important to some of us, so you know this is also important or I wouldn't be complaining! Watch Google. Do as they do. When the only reason some people (me included) are keeping they yahoo mail account is because we have too many contacts to change, you might be doing something wrong, yes?

Hey idiots;. it's my password, right?
SO WHAT if it's similar to my last that is how I want it! Idiots; so better to just leave it as is since you jerks won't let me change it because YOU decide it's too similar. Yesah, that is a better option. Freakin' idiots Maybe that is how I REMEMBER IT. ****, how about you let us decide.
