Yahoo Account Key Set up, Activate, Use and Manage
Are you pissed off remembering multiple passwords? If the answer is in yes, then you are in the right place. Remembering too many passwords of multiple platforms is no picnic but this isn’t the case with Yahoo anymore. You would be glad to know that Yahoo gives you an option to get into your account without entering the boring traditional password. Isn’t it cool? Certainly yes!
This feature is called Yahoo Access Key which will allow you to enter into your account without entering the Yahoo password. All you need is a Smartphone with the Yahoo Mail app installed on it. Once you enable the Yahoo Access Key, you will be sent a notification on your Smartphone and you just need to approve it. This is how; you would be on the way to your inbox without bothering about the password. By doing so, you will also secure your Yahoo account from unauthorized access because the access is limited to your Smartphone only, even if someone gets the access to your Yahoo password they won’t be able to get in successfully.
Follow the steps to enable the Yahoo Access Key.
