You can increase the protection for your account by enabling 2 step verification. When you sign in, you enter your email address and password. Yahoo then sends a code to your cell phone that you have to enter. This means that somebody could watch you sign in and still not be able to access your account unless they also have your phone.

Having said that, I feel I have to mention that this does absolutely no good if Yahoo itself gets hacked - and this has happened more than once. Here are details of the most recent.

Someone has hacked into my address book and sent letters to all my contacts saying that I was mugged in England and need money. I have changed my password but I have noticed that my contact list is missing...


First thing is to reset the password next try contacting yahoo customer service about your problem to get info about strange IP address behavior Even ask about the backup of contacts, may be they can help you on this.
Most important thing with yahoo accounts is its very easy to hack it by trying forgot password questions. ( To see what I am saying try forgot password on your id and you will be able to see how simple it is get access to your account by answering 3 secret questions which you had set when creating the yahoo account and even many of your friends might know the answers) So reset your forgot password questions with more tougher ones to crack.
I had the same problem earlier and I had reset my yahoo password several times, but my roommate was able to access my mails without my notice. Then realized that he is accessing my account through forgot password as the questions to retrieve forgot password are the same old ones with questions like what is your birthplace which he already knows very well.
Hope this helps and be safe online as it is very easy to access your financial details and credit card details when your email is hacked.

I want to know how to hack yahoo password


Please don't think of that because that account is not yours and when you want to hack someone account is a criminal act.Sure is an infringement of private policy.

My ID is hacked


The best solution would be to remove all your private information.
Delete it or forward it to another account. You can create a new account to transfer this info.

After you have done this, stop using the account.
If possible close the hacked account.

Preventing further attacks:

In the new account you have created and transferred your data from the old account, always change your password, or set a password with both lower and upper case, the password should also contain numbers.
For example "daNy47Q"

Most hackers use key loggers to hack into user accounts, so when entering your password, do not enter the password in the order it appears. for example, if your password is "john" type jhon, then erase then type the password again in the right way "john".
This will confuse the hackers, and will keep access to your account safe.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth

Hacked Id


Yes your email has most likely been hacked. This obviously means someone is reading your mail. Create a new account with a totally different user name (if your user name was leannraven don't make it leannraven2) and send an email to all of your friends to send mail to your new one and to stop sending to the old one. I don't know of any other way to fix this.
