If you haven’t changed your SBCGlobal email account since 2014, then now is the time to change your login password. Yahoo also said that it will be contacting the users and provide them with the alternative verification method.
Now we are going to discuss how you can make your existing SBC email account more secure.
Change Your Password Frequently
You need to change your sbcglobal mail login password frequently if you want minimise the change of getting your SBC mail account hacked. At least make a habit of updating your old password twice a month. If you have not changed your password since 2014, then the company is notifying you to change it immediately.
Never Use The Same Password
When you create any email accounts for e.g. hotmail, gmail, yahoo, sbc, never use the same password for all the account login. If hacker can access your other account with that password, they try to use the same password to crack your account. Go to www.sbcglobal.net and immediately change your password if that is what you are doing for all your accounts.
Select Strong Password
The length and complexity of your password must be high. That is a key to strong password. It is never a good idea to use your own name as your sbcglobal password or any other password for that matter. Make a good use of special characters, numbers in your password. Throw in some combination of upper & lower cases. For e.g. P@55w0rD.
Use Password Manager
We use lots of websites daily. We cannot remember login password to all of them specially when we set difficult password that we cannot remember that our-self. You can add password manager extension, add-on in your web browser. Most popular password managers are KeyPass, Last Pass, Dashlane which are free. Now you only need to remember master password to see other saved passwords.

This verification method use one-time key to login. After you provide your username or email address, verification code will be sent to your mobile phone. You need to enter the code, then only login will be successful.
