Did you try to login to Yahoo and discover that your sign-in seal was missing?

Triple check that you are not on an imposter site before proceeding!

Start a new web browser and go directly to

The most likely causes for the missing seal are that you changed computers or that your cookies were cleared.

Thanks!! As you know, we always tell people not to log in unless their sign in seal is visible. When I went to log in this morning, mine was missing. It was due to clearing my cookies. (I ran spybot) I had to go directly to to make sure I was at the actual yahoo site before logging in.

It is very disheartening to think that cookies are relied on to show your sign in seal. I am not very tech savvy. Is there a more secure way for them to do it Ray?
