How to Change My Yahoo Mail Security Setting Like a Pro?

by Doris Jean Yahoo Customer Support Number



Are you worried about the security of your Yahoo mail? It’s a valid concern, in the past few years Yahoo has suffered some breaches and security hacks.

To secure your Yahoo mail account, you need to plug in some holes that are easy to exploit for hackers to get access to your account. This Article will show you, how you can modify the Yahoo mail security setting like a pro.

You are advised to use these settings to safeguard your account and protect it from future threats.

Let’s get started.

Creating Sign-in Seal

One of the most recommended security setting you must use is sign-in seal which protects your yahoo mail account from phishing attacks. The phishing attacks are performed by taking you to a similar page and asking you to log in to your account. The fake page will take your login details and exploit it.

To protect your account from these attacks you must create a sign-in seal which works by storing a 21 digit custom seal into your computer. The next time you want to login to your mail the seal needs to match in order to log in securely. The authenticated seal can only be found on the official Yahoo mail website which means there is no chance of getting attacked. Contact Yahoo Technical Support Phone Number for detailed knowledge about the sign-in seal.

Change your password regularly

Password is the first line of defense in any account and a weak one might be a way for hackers to get in. We always recommend our users to choose a password containing small and capital letters as well as numbers and special characters. Passwords with this combination are hard to crack and very secure.

Always remember to choose a strong password for your Yahoo mail account and change it regularly to keep it secure.

  • Go to account info

  • Got sign in and security setting

  • Click on the link of Change your password

  • Enter your new password in both fields

  • Click enter and you are good to go

Taking help from Yahoo Customer Support Number is always a great idea when you are stuck on something.

Use SSL

SSL is used for encrypting the session you have started. This means the data transfer between your computer and the mail server will go through an encrypted tunnel. This way your account will be secure and you can use your mail anywhere even on the public networks.

  • Go to mail options

  • In General tab, you’ll see a checkbox which says Turn on SSL

  • By checking that box your mail account will be encrypted.

If you have any questions relating to SSL or Sign-in seal, contact Yahoo Helpline Phone Number and get instant support for all the problems and queries.
