Hello,
I would dearly love some support.

My Yahoo login is in Swedish. I live in Germany, my VPN is set to Germany, language set to German.
Spyware, Malware bytes etc. do not bring any result. Cache empty, cookies deleted, browser history deleted,
Even ads are in Swedish in my yahoo mail account.

Any suggestions?

Thank you, Bee

System Configuration: Windows / Opera 68.0.3618.63

Hi,

Access your Yahoo preferences by clicking on this link.

Then in Language, set your language and region.

Thank you, HelpiOS.

Language and region are set. Unfortunately to no avail.
I even get the yahoo homepage in Swedish. Interestingly, my VPN was set to German but my last activities are recorded in Linkoping, Sweden with my correct IP Address.

Would you have any more suggestions?

Hello, in addition to what HelpiOS has already said,

You could try changing your VPN server location. I've noticed that on occasion the VPN location isn't exact. For example I have used a French location, but had German results...
