Yahoo mail " someone logged into youre account "

This is the 3rd time now that some managed to access my e-mail from a mobile device from outside the uk, has anyone else had this happen to their account? Im sick of it that much now that im going to look for a new e-mail host maybe try Gmail.

Re: Yahoo mail " someone logged into youre account "

I'm with yahoo and have been for a number of years. To the best of my knowledge, I've not had my account hacked (although I douse very long passwords). My secondary account however was hacked recently in the recent super hack of yahoo and it emailed people I didn't want emailing. I don't use the account much so it doesn't really matter but I was miffed about it.
Unfortunately Yahoo have a habit of not listening to their users or taking their security too seriously. I've used yahoo for over a decade and had much frustration with them however their email system is the reason I stay - disposable email addresses, unlimited storage are just two of the things I can't find anywhere else. Besides, i don't fancy forwarding 20k emails manually to a new address.
Like all things yahoo can be a pain but they're also great if you can put up with the annoyances.

Surely "forever" is a bit of an over exaggerration ?
So you may have to wait for 60 seconds , you wold wait longer than that for a pint at the pub...
