How to Secure My Yahoo Account?
- Keep your recovery info up to date. Check whether you set old number which you no longer user as recovery number. Same goes for email. Use current number and email.
- Update your password. Create a strong password with more than ten characters and with a mix of alphabets (uppercase & lowercase), numbers and special characters.
- Don’t use the same password for other accounts.
- You can go password less. Enable Account Key to login so you don’t have to use a password.
- Enable 2 step verification, which adds additional security to your account. With 2 step verification enabled, hackers can’t access your account even if they have your password.
Stay safe. Be aware and make your friends and family aware.
