As a Yahoo!7 account holder, you can create a sign-in seal to protect yourself from phishing websites. A sign-in seal is a secret message or photo that Yahoo! will display on a genuine Yahoo!7 website when you log in. If the seal isn't displayed you may have landed on a phishing page. More information is available at Yahoo! Sign In-Seal FAQ.
