Have yahoo mail accounts for business and personal. Every 2 weeks or so, I'm required to change password on my business, however, personal account rarely requires change. I understand the security need to change. Is there a way to minimize frequency?

Hello, I did a little reading around this subject. Apparently some users have found that they were getting 'update password requests' when the password that they were changing from and to were too similar.

Ie Password1 > Password 2 etc.

Try using a completely different password that is not related to your current one and see if that has any effect on the frequency of these requests.

Regards
