Went to check my email, you asked for an authentication code you would send me. I clicked resend at least four times and nothing happened. Your email security is more of a nuisance than a help.

I hate having to have my phone near me to sign on to email when I am using my computer!!! how can I stop having to verify using my phone it sucks

Same! I like using a computer for email, and I'm not always near my phone. Plus I live in an area with bad cell service, so I don't always get the key. I wish I could just go back to using a password.

I am sick of using yahoo and the over use of verification on devices I use a thousand times a day. Upgrade your equiptment and stop asking me to verify. I will switch all my email and use outlook exclusively if you do not.
How can you make me verify my backup phone and when I enter the security code I receive an error: something went wrong. ALL THE TIME. What is wrong with you?
James Lawson commented
Did you have any success? For some reason my email; jimlawson77; will not accept my long standing password and I don't have the original verification internet/mail server?

what an ordeal trying to sign into my yahoo mail account. I hate having to go thru my cell phone to verify my account! Anybody can stalk a smart phone; it isn't more safe.

Always when I use my laptop i have to verify phone number, a code is sent, then I have to enter it in laptop. Stop this!
It is time consuming and annoying, makes me want to stick only to Google. How do I make this stop?
Please send me a personal email to correct this annoying feature
Just need another way to verify. If I am traveling overseas and don't have a cell phone only wifi. How do I get in to yahoo when it is not my cell on wifi? Why or how is my cell phone more secure than my pc?
