Have you ever had the need to check on your Yahoo e-mail just to realise that you can’t remember your password? You would then have to go through the process of retrieving your password, which would normally require you to remember your Yahoo ID as well. If you would like to avoid a situation like this from happening, Yahoo’s “on-demand” password is just what you need.
Yahoo’s new on-demand password service basically lets users log into their Yahoo account without the need of an old fashioned password. Instead, Yahoo will send the owner of the account a short password via text message that the user can then use to log in, which can be a godsend to people who have too many passwords to remember.
Of course, in order to enable this feature, you would have to be able to log into your account in the first place (hope you remember your Yahoo ID and password). Then, you would have to go to the settings page and enable on-demand password.
Unfortunately, it appears this convenient feature has not been made available in Malaysia yet. Hopefully, it will make its way here in due time.
