This new service is believed to eliminate the outdated and unsecure password logins totally. To use the feature you must register your mobile number and turn on ‘on-demand’ passwords in your accounts security settings. Dylan Casey, Yahoo’s vice president of product management for consumer platforms, said that this was the first step to eliminate the passwords.

After that whenever users try to login, they will see a “send my password” button, and Yahoo will message a four-character password to their phone
