  10. It would be helpful to be able to BLOCK a user that hacked into my account from the Recent Activity screen

    add "Block" button to Recent Activity page so unrecognized/hacker can be blocked from further attempts to hack into one's Yahoo account.

  11. Enable the "Generate an app password" feature in Yahoo or get rid of it so I can access my Yahoo email via Outlook.

    Get rid of the need to generate an app password to use Outlook to access my Yahoo mail account - using my (secure) Yahoo login credentials should be secure enough! Also, the "Generate an app password" feature is currently NOT WORKING which is so frustrating!

  17. Unable to generate an app password so can't access my email on my desktop at work as yahoo is blocked by admin to prevent searches other tha

    I am unable to access my Yahoo account at work as admin have blocked the site and we can only search using Norton. Since I am a sub-contractor and need access to my Yahoo account they have given permission for me to use Outlook but I am unable to sign in without an app password but the option on my mobile device and home PC is showing as unavailable.

    Is there an alternative way I can sign in to my account using Outlook without a generated app password?

  20. The "Generate an app password" dialog box is not working.

    There is no pull down menu for the app name. When I fill the app name in manually I get an error message: Sorry, this feature is not available right now.
    It's nice that you have the feature to generate passwords for third party apps, but features that don't work aren't features.
