Recently 450,000 yahoo passwords were stolen. If you use Yahoo Mail or any other Yahoo Services, you should go change your password ASAP. Here’s how.
First, go to yahoo.com
At the top of the page, if it says “Sign in”, then click “Sign In” to sign into your Yahoo account. If it says “Hi, <your name>” then you are already signed in.
If you can’t sign in, your account may already be compromised. If that’s the case, click on the “I can’t access my account” link to try and recover your account.
Now hold your mouse pointer over where it says “Hi, <your name>” and you will get a pop-up menu. Click on account info in the pop-up menu.
You may have to enter your password.
On the next page you will want to click on “Change your password” so that you can change your password. When you change your password, be sure to use a strong password. A strong password should contain at least 3 of the following 4 elements. Use all 4 for the strongest password:
Upper case letter(s). Example: ABCDE
Lower case letter(s). Example: abcde
Number(s). Example: 12345
Symbol(s). Example: !@#$%
