While a small number of users are now posting that the problem has been fixed, others are still reporting the issue as late as 11:00 (BST) on Sunday.

Yahoo has yet to publicly acknowledge any such issue on Twitter, although it’s clear from the volume of upset users that a problem does exist.

Twitter users slammed Yahoo’s customer support for its silence on the matter:
