How to change Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo login

Jul 13, 2017
We originally wrote this story back in May, when news hit that more than 270 million email account details were being sold on Russia's black market following a huge hack, with 24 million belonging to Gmail, 33 million to Hotmail and 40 million to Yahoo Mail users. With no way of knowing whether your email address had been affected, we advised you to change your password to avoid security implications (it's a good idea to routinely do so in any case).Since then, in September September 2016 news broke that Yahoo user account details had again been stolen, with at least 500 million user account details at risk following a 2014 data breach. And now, in December 2016, the company says one billion accounts are affected by an entirely separate data breach dating back to 2013. We strongly advise you to change your Yahoo login details, which we explain how to do so below. Plus: How to change your Gmail password; how to change your Hotmail password.

How to change your Gmail password
