Determine if a sign in page or email was created by Yahoo7

Make sure the sign in page you're on, or communication you've received, genuinely came from Yahoo7.

The URL or Web Address for all genuine Yahoo7 pages that ask you for your Yahoo7 ID and/or Password will always contain "yahoo.com."

If you're seeing suspicious links in Yahoo7 Mail, they might be a phishing attempt. Learn how to protect yourself with our tips.

Recognize "phishing" and "spoofing"

"Phishing" and "spoofing" are terms used to describe attempts by fraudsters to pose as a legitimate company or individual to steal someone's personal information, usernames, passwords, or other account information.

Recognize fraudsters trying to steal information

  • Fraudsters try to trick you into providing personal information. With their fake websites and emails, they attempt to get you to disclose your personal information, user name and/or passwords.
  • Look for the Purple Y icon icon
    • The location of the icon in in the message list depends on your preview settings.
      • If the preview is off (or appears below) it appears next to the "From:"
      • If the preview is on the right, it's below the checkbox.
    • If you don't see it, the email isn't actually from Yahoo7. The Purple Y icon icon will only display through the Yahoo7 website. You won't see it in the mail apps.
