I have a Yahoo email address. What should I do?

  • We want to make sure you are being proactive and protecting yourself. In addition to contacting an IDShield Consultant if you believe your information has been compromised, we recommend the following:

    Change your account password even if Yahoo doesn't prompt you to do so.
    Choose new security questions and answers for your Yahoo account, and any other accounts on which you used the same or similar questions/answers.
    Be wary if you get odd email messages from a friend with a Yahoo email account as it might be that their account was taken over by a scammer.
    Be wary of email, even if it looks legitimate. Scammers can copy logos and mask the sender's address to appear to be from a trusted person or business.
    Be suspicious if you get a call from Yahoo. They will not call you. Understand that caller id can be masked to appear to be a call from someone or some business familiar to you.
    Make sure you've activated your monitoring available to you through your IDShield membership. www.myidshield.com
