alert: Yahoo email hacked again
I've been warning people for years since my junk Yahoo email got hacked a few years ago. Yahoo emails seem to be the most susceptible to hacking.
I use Gmail for my primary email with 2 factor authentication and feel pretty secure.
I'm still shocked at the number of people who use Yahoo as their primary email...and don't turn on phone verification.
Please, for the love of God, if you use Yahoo, at least turn on phone verification to protect yourself as much as possible (although I still don't trust Yahoo this is better than nothing). https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN5013.html
In fact, you should be using 2 factor authentication for everything possible.
TL;DR - Yahoo email sucks balls. Turn on extra security to protect yourself, or better yet, switch to Gmail (Hotmail is ok but the new Outlook interface is horrid).
