Re: how do you disable second sign-in verification?

This does not work for me!  I disabled second sign-in, but it is still required every time I log in; the only thing that changed is that is sends the account key by email, instead of cell phone.

 

The reason I disabled second sign-in is because it prevents me from Yahoo using email on my ipad.  Every time I tried to generate an app password for IOS mail, I got stuck in an endless loop of verifying my password and was never able to finish!

 

Now my Yahoo account is STILL being blocked from ipad IOS mail.  Given how unreliable Yahoo has become, I refuse to download the Yahoo app.  IOS mail works perfectly for all my other email accounts, so if that's the only answer, I'll pitch the Yahoo account and use a more reliable service.

 

More security options are a good idea, but only if they actually WORK!!

Here's how you disable two-step verification if you enabled it.

 

Add two-step verification for extra security - https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN5013.html?impressions=true

 

If there's something unusual about your sign in or recent activity, you may be asked go through a second verification step, even after entering the correct password. This may happen whether you have two-step verification enabled or not. We do this to protect accounts from unauthorized access.  Read more about this in the following article.

If you feel Yahoo is no longer meeting your email needs it would only be smart to move on to another email service provider that does.  Here's how to close your existing Yahoo account so you can make the clean break away from Yahoo.
