Changing your password is NOT sufficient, even though that is Yahoo's advice! Use a very strong password (letters, capitals, punctuation, symbols - the longer the better. Start with a sentence, and make substitutions.)
Change your 'Secret' Questions and Answers too - ones that nobody could guess - Yahoo even allows you to invent your own questions.
Change all your alternate e-mail addresses too. Yahoo sends the change of password to the alternate e-mail, so if you change that (or those) too, the hacker will not be able to re-set your password.
Password + Secrets + Alternate Address = better security
In case of a hacked Yahoo account, where you cannot sign in, (a changed password and secret questions), the Account Verification department offers two ways to contact them:
1. Call 866-850-4303 toll-free (Open 7 days a week, 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. Pacific Standard Time)
2. Use the form below to send an email with all of the information an agent needs to respond within 12-24 hours:
3. Give them your identity using your birthday, ZIP or postal code at the time you last updated, your country, and the same alternate email address and Security Question(s) that you provided during registration. Knowing the approximate date when you set up the account also helps.
