Re: Recovery Phone Number

Greetings @wiwid96


When you remove account recovery information from the Account security page Yahoo retains that information for approximately 90 days so that your account could be recovered using this information if it had been compromised.  You can remove that information using the information in this article.

Changing your password is only the first step in securing a compromised account.  The next articles show other things you can do.

Be sure to remove any unknown devices or account that may have been connected to your account.  The next article can help with this process.
