Login history overview

If you ever are looking for more info on your recent account activity, whether out of curiosity or for security reasons, the login history feature is the place to look. In login history you can see where, with what device, and how your Yahoo account has been accessed recently.

Login history can be broken down into 3 categories: devices, browser sessions, and mail and messenger apps or websites you access with your Yahoo account.

Device type

The device type window lists your trusted, signed-in devices that you've used to sign into Yahoo apps. These devices can be used to receive account access - no password needed.

 If you lose your phone, you can make sure your account is safe by disconnecting any devices.

Under each listed device, you'll see the location and time that you last logged on in addition to what actions can be performed from this particular device. Click Done when you've reviewed the info and made any necessary changes. 

Browser sessions

Recent browser activity covers all the places we've seen you sign in to your account from a browser. Here, you'll find a list of the browsers you've used coupled with the device you used, the location, and the time of sign-in. If you don't want your account to be accessible on that browser, click Sign out next to that session.

Sometimes, mobile device access can record as 'Browser,' so don't worry if you recognize the location, but 'Browser' is listed instead of 'Mobile'.
