    I posted a rant yesterday on the Sky community about Yahoo and they did not publish it.
    Sky are not even sending the "request change of password" emails.
    I have changed my Pay Pal password, other than that, I avoid internet banking.

    When in doubt just change your passwords every month, at least. That's one of the best ways to be secure.

    This is a reason why "secure" browsers still have pros and cons.

    Received a warning e-mail from Sky on 23rd Sept with "advise you change your password".

    I have tried several times to change my SKY password, they promise to send an email with the link, but it never happens.

    I have considered getting rid of SKY broadband and joining BT but it seems they use Yahoo too.

    Do you have facts on previous Yahoo incompetence, or just personal opinion ?

    Before 2013 Yahoo didn't even use https! They were wide open to hacking. Another 'risk' was that allowing mobile devices to log in was enabled by default. Mine was one of the a/cs hacked. having learned the hard way, I turned on the (newly added) https option and disabled Mobile access (the entry route my hacker used).

    ...now were learning the company has also quietly rolled out an HTTPS option (finally).If you use Yahoo Mail, you should enable the feature now (unfortunately its not on by default).

    Since then I've had no further breaches and Yahoo have (finally) got round to using two-part authentication. I'm happy they are (now) as secure as most others, but that certainly wasn't the case until recently.

    I have just changed my Sky email password, you have to get the link from another account, in my case gmail, pity they neglected to tell anybody that, what a bunch of c---s.
    While I was about it, I changed my gmail password too.

    I have just visited my email page to check the security as advised by Bree, there is a closed padlock, is that it?
