Yahoo is Giving New Phone Owners Access to Previous Phone Number Owner’s Email Account

The Infinite Brief
According to Reddit user Samuelp12, Yahoo gave him access to the email account of the previous owner of his new phone number.

Yahoo’s current verification process requires users to confirm their identity using a unique number sent via text. 

Samuelp12 claims that Yahoo didn’t request any other information, such as an email address or even a first and last name.

Yahoo Support has been contacted and engineers are reportedly working on fixing the issue.
