Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Yahoo got hacked in 2013 and 2014 and we only found out about it in 2016. If your account hasn't been compromised

by now it probably never will be.

If you still want to change your password, from a Yahoo page you're signed in to, hover your mouse

over your name and select Account Info

On the left click Account Security and enter your Yahoo password ***** prompted

then click the Change Password *****

And it is safe to use your credit card.

If you would like any additional information or assistance,
please do not hesitate to let me know.
