Yahoo has discontinued the login service we used

Hey! For anyone who uses Yahoo to log in to their iFixit account, we’re extremely sorry for the log in issues you've been experiencing on our site for the past few months.

You probably received an email from us asking you to reset your password. Although this email looked like the literal definition of phishy, we promise this is not a phishing attempt and we have not been hacked! It’s a valid link supplied by our developers.

Yahoo has discontinued the login service we used, and we’ve removed the "Log in with Yahoo" feature on our log-in page. If you used this feature and are unable to access your iFixit account, the only way to regain access is to reset your password at login.

Again, we're sorry for any inconvenience this has caused—and for the phishing scare! If you received this email and aren’t affected by the issue, please ignore it.

Thank you for being responsible users and asking further questions before clicking the link :) If you have any questions about this issue, please reach out to  

Thank you,

I hope you didn’t click link to change your password.

I got this email too - one problem. I never used my Yahoo address when contacting iFixit.

Investigating the email reply address looked too much like a spoofed address so I have treated it as a phishing attempt.

Can anyone REALLY from iFixit confirm the legitimacy of the email.

Hey Jeff, I'm sorry for the phishing scare! This is a legitimate issue—I've updated my original post to address the phishing concern. You can also double check that I'm a real person by following my Meta account to my iFixit profile, where it shows that I'm a member of the iFixit team. Don't hesitate to email me if you have further concerns!

If it helps to reduce the number of yahoo-users, it is all fine.

Snowden revealed the truth on Yahoo espionage and their policies are very repulsive to say the least. Why is everyone so hooked on Big Data companies?
