Yahoo launches password-free logins

Available in the US, on-demand passwords work by users first logging into their Yahoo accounts normally. Once you've accessed your account, you can head over to security settings and turn on on-demand passwords. The next step is to register your phone and connect it to your account.

When you next login, the password field will be replaced with a "send my password" button. A password containing four characters will then be sent to your phone, verifying your identity through the linked device and granting you access to the account.
