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.

    I would think if consumers were using the two step verification to sign on, the hacker would not receive the sign in code shown in this email. Am I correct?

    When are yahoo going to simply ban anything with the words " yahoo account closure" inserted into an email... I get 100's a month... never opened them... just add them as spam in the hope someone else doesn't get it... or does the spam function on yahoo / Norton do anything at all?

    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?

    • July 13, 2019 at 8:12 AM by info

      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.
