If you were trying to sign in, then please take one of these actions:
Option 1 (recommended): Use mail.yahoo.com or the Yahoo Mail app for
Android and iOS to more securely access your account.
Option 2 (not
recommended): If you still want to use an app that uses less secure sign in
to your Yahoo account:
2.Turn on "Allow apps that use less secure sign in"
3.Go back to your
existing email application and sign in to your Yahoo account again.
Using apps that don't meet Yahoo's recommended security standards may leave
your account more vulnerable or less secure.
