Hello, Every 2 days I get this message when trying to log in:

Make sure your account is secure!

Your account may be at risk.

To secure your account, change your password and update your mobile number


This is a shared home computer. Everyone in my household is having the same problem. So annoying! Please help!

Hi,

I recommend you scan your computer for malware since the alert is recurrent and everyone of your family face the same issue with their accounts. To perform the scan, download Malwarebytes.

After the scan, and if malware has been detected and removed, update the passwords of all your online accounts, in addition to Yahoo, to keep them secure.

Good luck
