If you have doubt that your Yahoo account has hacked then, follow the below-given steps very carefully
Change your password immediately:
First and foremost, you will need to change your password and static credentials make the work difficult for the hacker. If your credentials were put on the dark web, someone could log into your account, so change them now. Make sure, you choose a strong password, containing symbols, numbers, and letters. Whatever you do, do not pick the simple and easy password that cannot be guessed by anyone.
Change Passwords on the linked accounts:
If you have linked email accounts, you will need to change the password on them also. Well, there is a chance that a hacker could gain access to them via your Yahoo mailbox. Do not make your new set of email passwords the same they need to be different.
Prefer Two-Step verification:
You can add an additional layer of security to your Yahoo account with the Two-Step verification. Simply go to the Yahoo account info page and click on “account security” and then, mark the “on/off” icon. You will then be able to enter your mobile number and then, select to receive an account key through text message. It makes life a bit tough for a hacker as they will resist signing in from a machine that Yahoo doesn’t identify without access to your mobile phone.
After following these things, you should follow a few tips to keep your account safe and secure. As we already discussed, Yahoo comes with some security features, and those are given below.

Mail Forwarding Alerts
