Hi there,

I have a Samsung S4 T-Mobile version with OTA updated to Android 4.4.2. After the update, the Yahoo mail app I installed asks for sign-in everytime when I restart the phone. It is very inconvenient to do that each time when I turn on the phone. Is there any way to fix this problem?

Thanks!

Is Yahoo added as an account in the main settings or the phone?

Go there and then recheck your account settings. Make sure the password and username are correct. I think if the phone has your wrong password or something, it would cause Yahoo to promot for a password.

That account info could have gotten screwed up during the update.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I added my Yahoo account by going to Settings-Accounts-Add account-Yahoo. It works fine while the phone is on. As soon as I turn it off or restart it, the Yahoo mail app asks for sign in if I launch this app.

Is this just my phone or other people have the same issue as I do?
