Why Can't I Access My Account Whenever I'm On Vacation In Another Country.?

The prompt you are receiving is called a second sign in verification and is intended to protect your account from unauthorized access.

You will need to contact Yahoo Customer Care: http://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?l...

Select Yahoo Account as the product, Suspicious Activity as the category and Received Security Warning Prompt as the sub-category.
Scroll down and click Email Support Agent to send your request.

If you regain access to your account, you can turn off the second sign in verification feature:

From a desktop or laptop computer, visit the Yahoo! Account Information page.

- Sign in to Yahoo, click "Hi, {your name}" at the top of the page then Account Info

On your Account Information page, under "Sign-In and Security"

- click "Set up your second sign-in verification"

Uncheck "Your second sign-in verification is turned on"

Click "Turn Off" to confirm your action.

Note: Once disabled, you will no longer receive notifications when you access your account from a new location."
