Wondering why you need to reenter your email password? Have Questions?
What's The Deal?
AT&T and Yahoo are making your email more secure. The new security implementation, also known as Open Authentication(OAuth), works by encrypting your credentials to better protect them from hackers.
A part of this change requires you to reenter your email password. There are a few other things you need to do.
Heads Up: You do not need to make changes if you have a compatible mail client like Apple Mail on Mac running OS 10.11/El Capitan or Windows Mail on PCs running Windows 10, for example.
