extra e-mail security

How do I add 2 factor Authentication to my Yahoo e-mail account? If that is not available in my area, what is my option for enhanced e-mail security? Thank you.

Hey Buck2023. Thanks for reaching out about your email security concern, and we'd be happy to answer your question. 


Unfortunately, 2 factor-authentication isn't available for our email service. However, if you're using a 3rd parry email client (Thunderbird, Outlook, etc), we'd recommend using OAuth technologyso that your username and password are encrypted. If the email client you use doesn't support OAuth, then you can set up a Secure Mail Key to keep your password protected. 


We also have more information on our Email security that you can check out. 


Please let us know if you have any further questions. Thanks for contacting the AT&T Community Forums.
