How to Get Back Hacked Yahoo Accountby Kathleen David Yahoo Technical Support 18442070356
In the last 5 years, Yahoo was hacked twice; one in the year 2013 and other in the year 2016. These were the biggest breach in the history of cyber crime. In the first one, one billion Yahoo accounts were hacked while in the second one 500 million users’ account were compromised. The email service provider giant is doing its best in identifying the reasons at the same time users are worried about their confidential information linked with their accounts. If you are among the same users thinking what to do when your account is hacked, here are two ways out.
Protect your Logins
If one account is hacked, other accounts or services linked with it are in the danger zone. The hackers work on finding these links and getting control of all the accounts a user has on online space. So, protecting your logins is highly recommended especially if you use same password for different accounts (which is not at all a smart idea.)
· Use strong combination for creating a unique password. The password should be difficult to guess and at the same time easy to remember for you. This will protect other accounts from the attack.
If you find it difficult to remember password and that’s the reason you keep them easy, don’t do it. Else use a password manager app that will help in storing your passwords securely. But you still have to remember one password; the password of the password manager app. You can do that easily.
· Go for 2-step verification process (if you still have access). It creates a second layer of security to log ins. Along with the password; you also have to enter the unique code sent to your mobile number for accessing your mailbox. So, the hackers might get hands on your password but they cannot get the security code at any cost.
Delete Your Account
In case you have doubts even after setting up additional verification and changing password, delete your Yahoo account. However, before moving ahead do take a backup of important emails, pictures, conversations, videos and all that holds importance for you.
You are asked to enter your password and captcha when you try deleting your account. Once the process is complete, it will take 90 days to remove your account and data from the Yahoo! Mail server.
If you want to recover your account and think that the process is complex, contact yahoo customer care by email support for assistance.
