Yahoo! Launches Sign-in Seal to fight Password Theft

    Hi there,

    We’re launching the Sign-in Seal feature on the Log-in page of your account to help fight password theft and phishing scams.

    A Sign-in seal is a secret message or photo that Yahoo! will display on one computer only. You have the option to create a custom seal or text for signing into Yahoo! Search Marketing. The seal is there to tell you that you're seeing a genuine Yahoo! site, not a phishing site. If the seal is not there, it could be a fraudulent page created by a phisher to hijack your account.

    The seal is cookie-based and linked to one computer (not your Yahoo! ID); so you need one for each computer you use. This is available in the US market only.

    For more details read our Yahoo! Search Marketing blog post: http://www.ysmblog.com/blog/2008/02/07/sign-in-seal/

    Thanks for your feedback!

    My best,
