Stop making me verify email and phone num,ber all the time! Quit asking if I want to add another email or phone number to verify my account
Stop making me verify my account with email or phone codes all the time and quit asking if I want to add another phone number or email!
If there’s something unusual about your sign in or recent activity, we’ll ask you to go through another verification step after you’ve entered the correct password. This helps protect your account from unauthorized access. You may be prompted to get a verification code on your Yahoo app, recovery phone number, or recovery email address for any of the following reasons:

I have used this email since 2000. Suddenly I cannot log in unless you send a code to a secondary email or my tablet. This is a big time pain. I cannot figure out how to fix this.

Why do I keep getting this?: "First time signing in with this device?
We haven't seen you sign in from this device before. Choose a method below to verify that this is your account."
I HAVE BEEN SIGNING IN WITH "THIS DEVICE" FOR TWENTY FIVE YEARS NOW!
WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?

WHAT IN THE **** IS GOING ON I PAY FOR THIS ACCOUNT AND NOW YOUR UPGRADING WHERE IS THAT LEAVING ME?

Why do I have to re-sign in all the time? I HAVE BEEN USING YAHOO MAIL SINCE 1996! And, to add insult to injury you say that you haven't seen my password before and make me verify my account! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!!

Why not keep the stay signed in check box , this is a pain having to sign in all the time
Irene Yesley commented
I would like to stay signed in. I checked the box to stay signed in but it does not work.
Linda Berg commented
I'm not sure what changed, but I'm so frustrated, I've reset my password so many **** times, keep having to enter codes, etc. I just want to stay signed in. What the heck changed??

Problem started with Mozilla 89 version. Logon code is not persistant. If I exit the browser and return, I need to relog to yahoo and have an email sent, or use google to authorize yahoo to become active.

Each time I log on to my email now it says it doesn't recognize my PC and I have to get a security code. This never happened until in the last few weeks! I would prefer to replace the texting pain in the rear with a PIN #.

I dont' want to wait until I get a code on my phone to get into Yahoo mail. I didn't have to do that before so why now?
William T Anderson commented
Security log needs to stop once I indicate not necessary on this PC. I have to do every time now. Pathetic.
James M Maczka commented
I had updates on my computer, now I need a code to get into my email even though I check the "keep me signed in" box. How do I fix?
Have to verify on smartphone at least once per day to log on Mail on laptop! I might stop using yahoo mail based on this if not fixed soon! VERY very frustrating. (already was reported by another user, and still not fixed: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/600772-new-mail/suggestions/34034908-verifying )

stop making me use my phone to log into the email on the computer
Jeff Metheny commented
I have the stay logged on box checked and now everytime I want to check my emails, I have to have a code sent to my phone. Either allow me to stay logged in at my choice or get rid of the option.
My idea is that don't force people to enter their phone numbers to pass login screen. I am able to pass it but that screen doesn't have any option to skip phone number. Don't introduce fake reasons for this that users never requested. You can use this post when you care to improve user experience.

Why do you keep saying that you don't recognize my laptop EVERY TIME I have to sign in???????????????
Don Ramsey commented
Why, why, why am I being asked to sign in every time I open up Yahoo?

Fix your Protocol. you **** me off so much with your pass key security ****, you fail to realize I don't have the slightest need for any of it.
I do NOT want to have to put in SIX different security codes to access my 10 year old account!!!!!
