Hello,
I use yahoomail app and activated account key on it. I suspect someone has access to my account. I have been trying to change my security details, and view recent activities but the app keep requesting for current password and keeps rejecting the password. What do i do?

Hello
It’s your lucky day! I found the solution to your issue in this CCM « How-to » article:

“Yahoo Mail How to Recover Your Account”

@Ambucias I actually went through all the suggestions in that link beforehand but none of them worked. Mind you, I was not locked out of the mail. The thing is that i cannot go into the security setting and recent activitt as it asks for current password and kept rejecting the password

As you may know, Yahoo was hacked and millions of accounts were compromised. Yahoo now wants to gradually secure those accounts, hence your problem.

Perhaps this link will guide you to recover your account:
