First, this is not the place to contact Yahoo. This is a forum for everyone to ask and answer questions.

Secondly, if you use the same password on multiple sites it's your fault. The breach would have no affect on your credit or personal security if you have separate passwords for every website you get an account for. The breaches only took Usernames, passwords and security questions. No reason for Yahoo to provide any services.

Chris P:
I'm not offering any protection to users. Why should I?

I'm certainly not paying for credit monitoring – especially since you're getting the service for free in the first place.

You need to take some responsibility for keeping your own details secure – if you can't be bothered, you deserve to be hacked.

Groovy Vulture:
Yahoo is offering no "protection" and is not paying for credit monitoring. Yahoo advises all users to periodically change their passwords and update their recovery information. If you had done this all along you would be in no great peril or risk of getting hacked.

Yahoo Answers is just a forum where the general public can answer questions. It is NOT Yahoo's offices, nor do we members of the public have any say over what Yahoo does.

Yahoo Help desk is at http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/edit/ge…

If you get answers from "Yahoo staff" with phone numbers, ignore them, they are trying to scam you. Yahoo has no support numbers.
