How do you disable second sign-in verification?

How do you disable second sign-in verification?

I think in addition to deselecting "Two-step verification", you also need to stop using "Yahoo Account Key" (the top choice on the same page).

Greetings @dr_jrfinch


Actually you can't have both Two-step verification and the feature "Yahoo Account Key" enabled at the same time.  Once you have enabled one of them you would get an error message if you tried to enable the second one.

Please note that the classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available after January 30, 2019. At that time, you'll be upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or basic Mail, depending on your browser's compatibility.
