Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Unfortunately, you cannot find out who, but you can find out the devices and the locations at the Yahoo activity website below:

https://login.yahoo.com/account/activity

If you suspect your account is hacked into, then please change your email password, and check your account security information at the website below:

https://login.yahoo.com/account/security

Please reply at the box below to continue troubleshooting. Thank you.

Anyone can attempt to sign in any email account. Only successful logins would show in your yahoo account at the website below:

https://login.yahoo.com/account/activity

; there is no record of owners of devices, so Yahoo (and any company) can only know the device type, and location where each successful login was.

- If you suspect your account is hacked into, then please change your email password, and check your account security information at the website below:

https://login.yahoo.com/account/security
