Nowadays hackers and intruders are trying all kinds of methods to gain the password and get into your account. You need an extra layer of security so that you don’t fall into the prey. This post will help you how you can enable and disable the two-step Verification in Yahoo Mail.
Enable Two-Step Verification:
Once the Two-Step Verification enabled, it will add an extra layer of security. For an example, you insert your card in ATM. This is first layer of security and then you enter your PIN. This is the second layer of security. If someone get the card, he/she won’t be able to withdraw money as PIN will be needed to authenticate the identity. Same as in the case of Yahoo account, if someone gets the password of your Yahoo account, he/she still can’t log in into it as they will require a code which you will receive on your mobile phone. It will save your Yahoo account by getting hacked easily and instantly.
