Make the process of reporting Phishing Attacks easier.
I'm not sure which version of Yahoo mail I currently use. I know it is not Yahoo mail Pro. Today I was unable to locate or initiate the process in which to report an attempted phishing attack via my email inbox. I tried using the HELP buttons and also by searching with the additional page it brought me to with no avail. Next I searched the web and tried to implement those suggestions. However, my email home page did not correlate with the advice that was given. It did not have the necessary buttons or tabs that were recommended to click on nor the corresponding vocabulary. I never found an answer to my issue. I did stumble upon an email address that I could FWD the suspect email to, so I did. I FWD it to the Anti-Phishing Working Group at firstname.lastname@example.org and asked them for help. I just couldn't believe that as big as Yahoo is and as frequent an issue that I'm sure Phishing can be, that there was not an easily recognizable/useable system in place already.
My suggestion is to please make and install an adequately sized button or tab that is dedicated solely for "Report Phishing" available on all Yahoo mail main screens across all versions of Yahoo mail. Also include "Report Phishing Attack" as an additional option to the pop-up window when you right click on the suspected email. Easy Fix. Is there something similar to what I've mentioned in place already and I just somehow missed it? I honestly checked very thoroughly and could not find what I was looking for. Please inform me, if that is the case, at email@example.com.
