Consistently getting "too many unsuccessful login attempts"

I use at&t (Yahoo) on my iphone and iPad. Both work perfectly. However every single time I log into my account on chrome (latest version) on my Mac (also up to date) I get an error that prevents me from logging in. The prompt tells me that I have had too many unsuccessful login attempts, though I have not logged in wrong at all. I have to reset my password every day I log in. What is going on here? Is it an error with using the apple mail application? Is it a security bug on AT&T?

This is the error I receive:

Looks like you’ve tried to sign in unsuccessfully too many times. Recover your ID or reset your password to continue.

Care Code: 205.2 [LU003]

Please help!

Didn't notice that nearly every single post in this forum is about this subject, eh?

See THIS, it explains the situation and the workarounds.  There is no fix in sight.
