Safely access your Yahoo Account on a shared computer

Do you use a shared computer, like at a library or Internet cafe? Here are some steps you can take to protect your account information:

  • Uncheck the Keep me signed in box - This checkbox is cookie based and only applies to the computer where you checked the box. This way you can stay signed in on your home computer but maintain more frequent password protection on your work or school computer. 
  • Protect your account by changing the length of time you remain signed in.
  • Click Sign out after each session.
