Question about Computers & Internet
What message is asking you to do this? I am a bit intrigued, as the language used sounds suspicious. it could be a pre bundled program, especially considering it is a new pc. It may just be a bundled application trying to get you to sign up for yahoo mail service.
Unless you have a program that is set up to check your emails for you, you will never be asked to "verify" an account, especially for web based email.
if the message can be verified as legitimate, i wouldn't worry about it too much. I would just make sure to get rid of the pre bundled program that is causing that message to be displayed. You should probably run a thorough virus scan too, because you never know what type of programs you can end up picking up.
If you are looking for a more "all in one" type email service experience, there are a few things you can do. handheld devices such as iphones, etc save you login info, so that you don't have to enter it every time. You can achieve similar functionality on a desktop or laptop computer through the password storage features in modern internet browsers, whether it be internet explorer, Firefox, or chrome. If you login to you mail account, the browser will ask you if you want to store the password for later, that way you don't have to type it in next time.
for a more effortless approach, you can get mail checking browser extensions that check your mail and remember your password for you. I have used Webmail notifier, a Firefox extension, for quite some time and it works quite seamlessly.
hope that helps :)
