I got a security alert on my computer to change by password.

Customer Question

I got a security alert on my computer to change by password. So I have changed it to times and it lets me in after I finished the change, but the next time I log in it tells me the password ***** ***** I also want to change the name on the account. My husband set up this account and all my emails say they are from Byron. Years ago he opened an Yahoo email and he now has his own and I want my email to say Donna.
JA: How long have you had this issue with your Yahoo account?
Customer: I started getting the security alert in December and today I changed by password ********@******.*** and they had to send me the code at his email which is***@******.***. I also put in the address to change my profile and it tells me I have the wrong address. So all this started today.
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: No I haven't gotten any notices about updates.
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just that I keep changing my password ***** when I try to get back into the account***@******.*** it won't let me in and I want my emails to say Donna instead of Byron.

It is possible that you received a temporary password ***** is valid only for a short period of time until you manually change it. May I know if you can still access your e-mail account?

Thanks for the information!

I can help you with the issue you described; however, since there could be several possible causes of the problem, I suggest we establish a secure remote session so that I can see the problem myself and help you directly.

Let me if you would like that.
