Yahoo! Sign-in Seal Fights Password Theft and Phishing

By Posted 2007 Updated   ComputersSecurity

When you login to Yahoo! mail, how do you identify that it is not a phishing site or fake site trying for password theft? The best way to fight spoofed sites is to use a Yahoo! Sign-in Seal that will display every time you are on a legitimate Yahoo! sign in page.

Create personalized Yahoo! sign-in seals and easily fight password theft. Your sign-in seal will be visible whenever you sign into Yahoo! and if your sign-in seal is not there, it’s likely to be a spoof page created by a phisher. This security seal is is linked to your computer and not Yahoo! ID, so you need to create a Yahoo! Sign-in Seal for each computer you use.

Choose any image, any text or your favorite color to create a unique seal in minutes, then inform all computer users of this authentic seal to identify genuine Yahoo! sign-in pages and avoid phishing scams.

Just for example, I created a sign in seal using text “PC” and chose an orange color. Now whenever I am on a genuine Yahoo! sign-in page, I see this logo!

What if you don’t see your sign-in seal? Of course you could be on a fraudulent site, but it is also possible someone else using your computer may have deleted or changed your seal, your computer cookies may have been deleted, or you’re using a partner or international Yahoo! site.

Create your Yahoo! sign-in seal today and add security to your Yahoo! account.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
