Please have a link to 'Change password' somewhere that can be easily found - i have spent 15mins searching, and have followed a Yahoo link from this page, that said there would be Change password option, arriving on the page there is no such thing!

Your log-in now is horrible. Reset password and still doesn't take. I don't want to use account key everytime. Very irritating. Also content of emails do not load. Slowly changing everything over to gmail.

I got the same email, i have important things saved on yahoo, is this valid??

Why does it matter if it's too similar or even exactly the same or not?
After a few resets, I am out of familiar pattern, and will never remember the esoteric passwords any more.
Who decided that it was a good idea to remember previous passwords? Why does yahoo even remember the plaintext passwords?!?!

I just got the same e-mail. I was wanting to be sure this type of e-mail is not valid. Yahoo wouldn't send something like this right?

Why do I have to keep changing my password. I write it down so I know I am correct but you will not accept it!

They asked for my password to prevent deactivation. Of course I did not click the link or give my password.

My phone battery expired, and I wanted to USE A PASSWORD from the computer I was using, but I have lost my password. I CANNOT find a way to set up or change a password on the Yahoo website. Your "HELP" directions say to go to the Account Security page and click on "change password," but there isn't any Change Password button! PLEASE tell me how to REALLY set up a password!
Thank you so much!
PS: I would also like to be able to set up an alternate YAHOO email ID and password, but I can't get your screens to let me do that. I have to use a GMAIL account, and I HATE Gmail.
Help says to go to Account Security and click on change password to update password yet there is no such option on my account security page! Why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
