but have to do the verification code every time now
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yahoo was able to connect to my computer and see that ip addresses (many all cities he had visited for work) but I can't see it on my side. I need to get official information I could only get a snap shot of the ip addresses and wouldn't count as legal evidence.

  4. Enter your mobile number if there isn't one associated with your account.
  5. Click Send SMS or Call me depending on your preference.
  6. You'll receive a call or text with a code to enter in the verification code field.

I have done all that for a long time they are txting me the code but when I go to a different site and then go to yahoo again it makes me do it all over again
Tech Support Specialist: Sudipto, Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

Do you have entered the verification code to disable to two way verification, because just receiving the code while disabling it will not help.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
