- Apr 15, 2014Yes - that was my experience - which is why I now carry a cheap
Notebook around. At least Yahoo recognises that even if I connect
using free wifi from different IP addresses.
BUT I gave up when I was on holiday overseas. Yahoo effectively
BLOCKED my access from my Notebook because it thought that it had been
stolen and removed to a different country. Heck - I was only visiting
my brother in The Netherlands. I spent hours trying to unblock my
account and resetting passwords etc.
And don't even try to log into Yahoo using a foreign keyboard, e.g.
one with Continental characters such as my brothers. Passwords typed
in on a non-English keyboard will NEVER be accepted. And then you get
blocked out completely due to entering in the wrong password too many
And having a two stage log in process using a code sent to a mobile
phone is useless if the phone wont connect in a foreign country - as
happened to me in Barbados. My phone wouldn't work and Yahoo wouldn't
let me log in without typing in the code that it had sent to me by
text. I only got the code when I returned tothe UK and my phone
suddenly worked again.
Its about time that Yahoo and Google realised that sometimes folks do
travel overseas to countries other than the USA, and catered for their
needs to send / receive emails.
