Wasn't the hack in 2014?  If you have changed your password since 2014 I would think you are probably fine.

I am a victim of identity theft and I'm still running away from the bad guys. It's bad - $$$. There is no excuse for Yahoo. After almost 20 years with a Yahoo email address I've gone to a different one that works for me. I picked one that I like and that I never thought I'd have.  AOL Mail. "You've Got Mail".

Hell I haven't even accessed my yahoo accounts since 14 all I had was a Flickr and a spam catcher email. I don't even remember the passwords.👻

Back in 2014 Yahoo sent Emails to everybody that said something like " Uh, we think you should change your password "   with no further explanation.  paranoid.gif

Its old news now, which is why they decided to tell the world it was the largest data hack ever. And releasing the info on a friday.   embarassedlaugh.gif

Its a cry for help, Yahoo just desperately wants someone to buy them. Seems that nobody cares, the battle is for a new king for Twitter.
