Safari IOS browser settings on an IPhone 6s with the most recent update loaded does not have a “allow when using option” under the Block Cookies . When I changed my password, I was caught in a loop that will not allow me to see my email..just says Oh no something went wrong try again! I do however see how the notification badge. I have removed the mobile app and reloaded it... I have restarted my phone. Then I went to my iPad and recharged the password again... still no luck signing into Yahoo mail on IPhone 6S. Any ideas? I will monitor my email on my iPad.
