Why Yahoo may prompt you to change your password
Change your password
Just follow the prompts on the screen. You'll be asked to:
- Enter a CAPTCHA verification code (this is sometimes used as a security measure)
- Enter your current password
- Enter and confirm a new password (See how to create a secure, strong password)
Good to know:
- If your account is compromised, changing your password is an effective way to restore your account security.
- We recommend that you periodically change your password, just to be safe.
- Be sure to use a unique password each time and never share passwords across websites
