If your password is easy to guess and doesn’t contain a mixture of special character, number, Upper Case then there is a chance that hacker can you account using Brute force attack or Dictionary attack. A dictionary attack is a hacking technique which uses simple file of common words to hit and trial password. A brute force attack is an advanced form of Dictionary attack. Instead of just a common word, the Brute force attack hit and trial all possible combination of alpha-numeric combinations. Hence always keep you Password Strong. Your password should be a mixture of Special character, number, and Upper Case. Yahoo has an excellent article on how to choose a strong password.

Enable Two Factor Verification (2FA)

Two Factor Verification is the best method to protect your Email. After Enabling 2FA, access is granted to the account only after the user can verify two forms of password or two sources of evidence of their account. Two sources of evidence are usually your email password and verification code you will receive via SMS or a call.

In Yahoo, you can enable Two Factor Verification within few clicks. Goto Account security Page and Toggle on Two-step verification. More detail about Two Factor Verification is provided HERE.

Beware of Phishing Emails

Phishing is a hacking technique used to steal user login credentials, credit card numbers, etc. In such an attack, hacker masquerades as a trusted party and tries to trick the user into clicking into the malicious link, which leads to malware or ransomware program intended to steal your private data. Although Yahoo tried to filter Spam Email from their side, Phishing email still exists. Users shouldn’t open or click the suspicious link. Never give account credentials to anybody.

Update your Account Recovery Information

Account Recovery Information is contact information through which you can recover your email credential in case the user forgets the password. Make sure that the Account Recovery Information data you enter is of trusted person and try to update the Account Recovery Information at least on quarterly intervals. 

Updating/Adding Account Recovery Information on Yahoo mail is straightforward. Go to Account Security Page and click on “Add the recovery email address.” For the detailed steps, follow THIS LINK.

Use a secure email service.

Yahoo Users don’t need to worry about secure email service. Yahoo website provides Secure Socket Layers (SSL) encryption for secure data transfer via Email. 

Secure Socket Layers (SSL) in general term, is a standard for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser to prevent the network from being tapped

Easy way to know if the website uses SSL is; if the web address starts with “https” it uses SSL.

Try not to keep similar passwords on every Email accounts

Hackers know that usually, people use similar passwords and security questions on all of their accounts for convenience. Once your one Account gets compromised, all other accounts whose password is similar also are under the thread. We suggest you go to all of your additional accounts, including bank accounts, email accounts, social media accounts, dealer accounts such as Amazon, media accounts like Netflix, etc. and change the passwords. Furthermore, Change the security questions and answers for any account where they were required.

If you are like me who keeps forgetting the password, then there is an awesome app called LASTPASS. It remembers all your passwords for you. 

Review of Account History Regularly

It’s a good practice to review your Account History at least every quarter. It helps to detect any potential intruders or hackers. 

To review Account History of Yahoo, go to Manage Accounts Page andSelect Recent Activity from Account info section. It displays information like session browser/OS, times, IP address, and location. If any suspicious activity occurred on your account, then this is the first thing you should do.

Review Your Forwarding Settings

If you have multiple accounts, email forwarding helps to manage it easily. But it can be an entry point for hackers to spy your Email too. Just a few minutes of access into your Email, and someone can set up email forwarding into their account. So monthly checking of the Email forwarder list is essential to stay protected.

On yahoo, you can do it very quickly. Go to the Accounts section of Settings Page. Click the Yahoo entry with your email address, scroll down, and you’ll view the Access your Yahoo Mail elsewhere field. Make assured there’s no data present. If data is present, then it means your email is forwarded to that email. Make a note of it, and then turn to forward off and change your password.

Encryption In Yahoo Mail

In the past, yahoo mail doesn’t provide automatic email encryption, but the user had to opt for the encryption feature. But things changed in 2014 when Yahoo declared auto email encryption.’ Now Yahoo is fully Encrypted and safe whether you use it from the web, mobile app, SMTP, IMAP, or POP

Nowadays, almost all famous Email service companies have Email Encryption.

Recognize a Hacked Yahoo Mail account

It may sound odd, but it’s not very easy to find if your account is hacked or not. Because hacker always tries to remain dormant and unrecognized. If you have the suspicion that your Email is compromised, then follow the steps mentioned below to find if your account is hacked or not.

Signs of a hacked email account

  • You’re not receiving some or any emails.
  • Your Yahoo Mail is sending spam to your contacts.
  • You see user logins from odd locations on your activity review page.
  • Your account info like email forwarder, 2FA verification, etc. was changed without your knowledge.

Preventive steps if your Yahoo Mail Gets Hacked

1. Change your password immediately

Usually, Hackers won’t change hacked account passwords to remain unrecognized. If that is the case, then immediately change your password to prevent further damage.

To change the password of yahoo mail, click the “Forgot Password” link from the login page.          

Things to remember:

  • Make sure your new password is long, unique, and complex passwords.
  • If 2FA(two-factor authentication) is off, turn it on. This gives an extra layer of protection to your email account.

2. Check your settings

After you change your password, the next thing to do is check if the hacker changed something on your account settings.

Some major things to look at are:

  • Email filters, Forwarders, Blocked addresses, Reply-to Address, etc.
  • Check if the hacker made any changes to the Email signature.

Note: You can send an alert message to all your contacts list informing that your Email was hacked and ignore any suspicious message from you until you inform that issue Ais resolved. 

3. Scan your computer and other devices for malware

After you verify your setting, the next thing to do is find the source of the cause. To find the cause and eliminate it, scan your computer for possible malware. There might be malware on the PC you use.

Note: If you found malware, change the email password and re-check account settings again. There is the chance that the malware system again sends the credential to the hacker.

4. Implement preventive measures to prevent future hacking

After your account got hacked, you must adopt preventive measures to prevent future hacking. Avoid suspicious emails or links. Regularly scan your PC for malware. Always using private and secure networks only. 

Future of Email Security

Nowadays, the trending topic for every aspect of technology is Artificial Intelligence. The email Service company is also trying to implement Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to make its security system more reliable and secure.

One famous AI Technology for Email Security is Micro’s Writing Style DNA. AI learns the user’s writing styles based on his past writing. If AI finds any variation on a writing style, it alerts the System about it.

Artificial Intelligence can also be used to detect spam emails, malicious files, and links too.

Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

How to Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Email service has been there for a long time. And emails you can do a lot of things with your Yahoo Mail, one of which is attaching files, images to your emails. With Yahoo Webmail Service, you get 1TB of storage that is enough for millions and millions of text emails with attachments. However, it limits the size of the message and the attachment sent via their service. This is enough for text documents, a few images, and other small files. But what happens when you have to send a large file from Yahoo Mail?

Thankfully there are some ways you can follow to send a large file through your Yahoo Mail. Let’s have a closer look at how to send a large file from Yahoo Mail.

Yahoo Mail Attachment Size Limit

Similar to most of the popular email service providers, like Gmail, Yahoo Allows users to send an email of up to 25 MB in size. The size also counts the size of the email message. So, if you are trying to send a file that is exactly of 25MB, you won’t be able to send the file. If that’s the case, you can reduce the size of the message or the attachment, which we will discuss in our next subtopics.

Different Ways to Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

Reducing Size of a Message, You Send

As I have mentioned earlier, the maximum size of the email that Yahoo offers to send at a time is 25 MB. So, if the message you are about to send exceeds the limit a little bit, you can reduce the size of your message by following ways:

  • Compressing the File Before Sending
  • Send Separate Mails if you have multiple files
  • Rather than attaching files send a downloadable link

Now, let’s describe them in detail

Compressing the File Before Sending

There are various desktop and online tools that you can use to compress your files or folders into one.

The most common Desktop tool to compress your file is WinZip and WinRAR. The tool compresses one-to-many files into a zip file that has relatively less size than uncompressed files. Then send your Yahoo email attaching the compressed file. Sending this kind of data, however, requires the receiver to have the same tool to unzip the files.

The most common online tools to compress files are youcompress, pdfcompressor, wecompress, Tinyjped, and so on. These tools require you to upload your files to their web browser and will provide you a compressed folder. You need to download these compressed files and attach them to your Yahoo email. The limitation with the online tool is that you will not get to compress any type of file in one place. Some compressor offers at most two types of files to compress. Meaning, you cannot compress your pdf file on a webpage that compresses images.

Send Separate Mails if you have Multiple Files

Now let’s suppose your compressed files to its extent. However, the file size still exceeds 25MB. You might be thinking about what should you do. This section of the article is for you.

What you can do is. If you have multiple files that you need to send, you can break those files down into small chunks and compress them separately in chunks. Now, the next step is to send those emails messages separately.

For example, I have 30 images with size 1MB each. The total size of the attachment is 50 MB. I used TinyJPEG to compress my images; however, the tool only compressed the image by 25% that led to 37.5MB in total. I can’t send this file, so I again compressed these files using WinRAR, which compressed to further 5%. However, still, I am left with 35.6MB, which I can’t send.

So, the solution is to break down the compressed images into two half and send them in two separate Yahoo emails. this way I can send large file From Yahoo Mail

Send a Downloadable Link

Most of the time, the photographers won’t use compressor tools to compress their images as it will degrade the quality of the picture by a certain amount. And if you have a single file that exceeds the file size that yahoo has limited, then the steps mentioned above won’t work for you. The only option for you is to upload the file somewhere else and sent the shareable link to the receiver adding the link to your email. Now, this is where our next topic comes in.
