To protect against phishing scams, Yahoo users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, they should instead go directly to https://login.yahoo.com/ or use the Yahoo mobile app.

Also, Yahoo users may add two-step verification for extra security. Two-step verification is another layer of security that uses your password plus a code to verify your identity when they sign in to their accounts on a new, unrecognized device for the first time. Yahoo will send their cell phone a code by text or phone call that only they will have access to. Click here to learn more about Yahoo Two-step verification or authentication and how to add to your account.

Yahoo users who have been tricked by phishing scams are asked to change their password immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently. For Yahoo users whose accounts have already been hijacked, they can click here for instructions to recover their accounts.

Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers or other information in samples on this website may have been impersonated or spoofed.

    What happens if I clicked on the link and it downloaded? I didn’t put my details in and have since changed my password. Am I safe now or has it added a virus to track my activity?

      It is a phishing scam, so it will only need your personal information or account credentials. So, if you didn't enter it, then you are OK.
