On Yahoo's asking for, (expecting everyone to have), a mobile number...
Since this is seemingly the only outlet available to me, as a Yahoo patron, to put this out there in, (Which is a whole other suggestion, in of itself!), I find it frustrating that this 'Account Key' verification option can not be 'completely" turned off on the user end. My Yahoo e-mail account keeps asking me for a mobile phone number whenever I log into it. I can't give them my home phone number, (it turns out), so why keep asking me for a mobile number, when I do not even 'have' one, and why make me keep having to... not 'choose', but 'put', "Remind me later", every single time I sign in?
If they're going to do this, why not at least ask me the proper question, of: "Would you like to use Account key?"... (then add), ... "it requires a mobile phone number", instead of just flagging me with: "Add Mobile Phone Number (Required)"?
It's more than just an annoyance to me. We, as human beings, are not required to own a cell phone, nor should we be expected to own one. A phone number, of any sort, is not required to open a Yahoo e-mail account, and 'Account Key' is not required for using Yahoo's e-mail; so why is it that I have to continually tell them each and every time i open my account, that I don't want the 'Account Key' feature, (Or, as they put (demand) it: "Add mobile phone number (Required!)"? It doesn't stand to reason.
Having to keep checking the "Remind me later" option each and every log-in, is a bit absurd, if you ask me - (is my point). Maybe Yahoo just needs to hire better 'systems analysts', or, maybe just needs a better understanding of the world in general.
