YAHOO ID | Confirm your identity" pop-up message For VERIFICATION

Confirm your Yahoo identity" pop-up message

Yahoo takes your account security very seriously, that's why Yahoo has implemented features like the "Confirm your identity" pop-up.

If your account is being accessed from a device (personal computer, tablet, mobile phone etc) that Yahoo don't recognize, you'll be asked to provide either an answer to a security question on file for your account, or enter a code sent to your phone or email; this is seriously for your own safety.


Identify verification options and steps

Did you know that depending on how long you've had your Yahoo account, you may be presented with only 1 verification option; I can's really say why yahoo had it this way.

Please note that; For added security, once you get back in to your account, you could be asked to change your password; this is for your own benefit.
