Password consistently doesn't work after 2-3 weeks

My yahoo password after 2-3 weeks will not work anymore and I am forced to reset it. This keeps happening to me, yet my mom and dad use yahoo and this does not happen to them. The last time i reset the password, I let my mother pick the password so she can verify I am not going crazy. After about 3 weeks, I had to reset the password because it stopped working.

That is normal - your account has not been hacked!
The temporary password will reset after 2-3 weeks. What you need to do is after you login using the temporary password, go into your account settings and change it to another password you create.

This one will not reset after 2-3 weeks.

It almost sounds like your yahoo account has been hacked. My father had a yahoo mail address that got hacked and they kicked him off for sending out spam. I would contact yahoo.

    (...) The temporary password will reset after 2-3 weeks. What you need to do is actually change that password to another one you create, and that one will last as long as you need it.

How to remove having to verify my password on yahoo emails

There is a keep me signed in (aka remember me) option when you login. Check it. It will still ask every couple of weeks. This is their policy and no way around it.

Yahoo also uses security seal (image, color, or text) you can choose to identify you. Use it. Passwords are hacked all the time. Mine was, doh!

    Pass word doesn't work


    If your Yahoo account password doesn't work, you will have to reset the password by using the Yahoo password reset wizard.

    To open the password reset wizard, click here

    Then on the page which opens, select "My password doesn't work" from the options and click Next.

    Enter your email id and also identify and enter the security code displayed in the captcha box.

    Now click Next button. On the next page, select the alternate email id or the answers to the two security questions which you have provided while registering the email account.

    You will then receive a password reset email from Yahoo on your alternate email address.

    Follow the instructions in the email to reset the password. Hope this solves your problem.

    For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.

    I think my account has been compromised.My password doesn't work anymore plus people on my contacts list are getting messages which I haven't sent.

    Click Yahoo's "I forgot my password" link.
    Correctly answer your "secret" questions.
    Then, Yahoo will let you change your password.

    However, if the "hacker" has changed those questions, then you need to contact Yahoo, and report that your ID has been "hijacked".
