Customer Question

Trio tablet model AXS-4g; Have 2 yahoo e-mail accounts. Changed password ***** both and went into settings and first account took change with no problem. Second account would not take new password. Wrote down all settings from both accounts (they were the same) and deleted second account and then tried to rebuild second account with copied settings. Keeps telling me name or password ***** (Account works fine on other computers.) Will not allow me to re-add second account no matter if I use quick steps or build manually. ???

Please login to www.yahoo.com using the info for the account that you are having trouble with. Click on the icon or photo with your name under it (in upper right hand corner). Next click on ACCOUNT MANAGER. On the next page that appears please click ACCOUNT SECURITY. Please scroll down and turn on "ALLOW APPS THAT USE LESS SECURE SIGN-IN", then check to see if you are able to add the account. Please let me know the results. Thank you!
