Yahoo! is an email service that has been on the online market for over a decade, which is now working on its reborn after some down years on the security matter of all its technological platform.
From its start, it was an important competitor regarding market share by having a substantial Latin user’s percentage, by developing its image towards them with a similar relevance in comparison to the North American market, having completely restricted its competitors in an implicit way on the Latin American market, because of language and culture matters.
Logging in process and account creation: a very familiar method
Beginning, to log in in a secure way on Yahoo Mail, you have to click on the Log In persistent button of the home page; by doing that, you will be directed to a sign up registration page, where you must indicate your Yahoo! email account and by clicking on the Next button, the account will be identified and it will ask you to enter the password to finish the log in process.
Also, on the area where the email account is introduced you will see three useful functionalities. So, the first one is making the browser to remember the data of the account, being the user logged in for a while. Continuing, the second one is to solve the authentication problem, and the third one has to do with signing up process if you do not have a Yahoo! account.
Of course, YMail kept on having a lot of its characteristic elements, among which color language can be found, although it has opted by the some component´s redesign like buttons, which are now circled and closer to the modern web usual design, being Google a perfect example to follow.
In fact, the registration characteristics are inspired on the logging in process used by Google that consists of two steps: one to indicate email account and the other to indicate the corresponding password. However, regardless of the fact that this is a less optimal way to log in, by splitting the process into two different steps the mechanism is way more secure.
Sign in registration, it is identical to its competitors as well
In order to create a Yahoo Mail account, you must go to the Log In section like it was explained on the previous paragraphs, and then clicking on the Create a New Account link.
In this way, you will be redirected to the corresponding registration process where you have to fill in the requested data. Notwithstanding it is convenient for you to indicate a phone number, it is not an obligation to do so, although you probably must validate your log in request through a phone number that you will use just one time, or an email.
The creation of Yahoo! Mail email service gives access not only to the email itself but to a set of services, which maybe you do not know about and Yahoo! has been worried on keeping them alive. In so, a clear example of this is Yahoo Messenger that now has taken the step to online web and it counts with an interface that recalls Whatsapp Web, even though this makes it intuitive on the use while it finds a way to differentiate itself.
Also, authentication through phone number is relatively new, less problematic than email authentication and more secure in direct comparison. Since, these feature has been already implemented by all the competitors, which in fact is also welcomed on the email creation of Yahoo! Mail.
The Yahoo Mail account Recovery process
If what you have lost is the access to your old Yahoo! account, but you remember all the recovery data, then you can carry out a password change easily. Because, Yahoo! counts with a more simplified method and easier to understand than its competitors, standing out this specific characteristic in a big way.
By clicking on it, you will be redirected to a simple registration form that will ask you random data, which could be the alternative email account entered on the sign in process or the indicated mobile phone number, or also security data like the phone number you decided to log in with, or the Yahoo mail address you do not have access to.
Continuing, by indicating one of these data an account recovery process will be opened according to the entered information; the easiest of all available is the one that consists on sending a verification code to the mobile phone number. With that, you can establish a new password quite easily, being a process that can be carried out in just a couple of minutes.
Even the same process can be done through the alternative email account, but it will take more time implicating you need to open that email account to read the sent verification code.
