Hello,



System Configuration: Windows / Chrome 73.0.3683.103


I have removed an email address from my recovery options but it is still available when I use "log in helper".
How can I remove this from my recovery options?

Best

Hi,

In your Account Security Settings, click the Email addresses option. Then click the trash icon next to the email address to delete.

Once done, wait a few hours for the change to take effect.
I did it a few days ago . It’s not in my recovery list, but if I try „forgot password „ it’s there.

After deleting the email address, did you add a new one?
Yes, there are 2 other emails there.

I think the recovery email is saved for a while by Yahoo, in order to be able to recover his account, if for example, a hacker has deleted or changed the recovery options.

The email address should be deleted within a few weeks.
