We believe your yahoo account has been compromised change your password Is this really from yahoo? or is it some kind of spoof message sent by someone trying to get my info please share your opinion I'm a little worried that someone is trying to hack my email what should I do? should I put a new password as the message says or nor the message? Thanks people I really appreciate any advice you can give me.

Hey there apples I have never had such a message from yahoo but I would treat it as suspicious and ignore it. I was getting messages from ebay for a while from random people saying they had a question about my item for sale. I wasn't selling anything at the time and the same message wasn't in my inbox when I logged into ebay so I just deleted them. I think you are wise to be suspicious!!

Unfortunately I had no choice but to change my yahoo password because the message appears every time I logged in, and it blocked me from accessing all of my other account options, so I went head and changed my info and the message has stopped.

did you check the sender email? sometimes its just spam. Dont worry, as long as you dont give your info and dont reply, you're safe. It wont harm too if you change your password since you'll really be doing that with yahoo.

The message I received is supposed to be from yahoo support but I'm not sure if it's from the real yahoo team or a spoof page, and now I'm a little worried because I keep getting the same message every time I log into my account what if it's the real yahoo trying to help me keep my account safe?

I think before you do anything else, run your anti spyware, and do not trust those emails. That is a hoax to get your identification and password. Yahoo will not send you a message like that.

I have not responded to the message yet, but every time I log into my yahoo account the same message pops up and I'm confused because what if it's really yahoo trying to help me protect my account?
