Yahoo com mail locking out my account

The following is a notice from yahoo.com with the address included.
Hi, xxxxxxxx

Yahoo! Account Security has identified a possible risk to your account.
Dear xxxxxxxx,
Your account safety is our top priority.
Recently, we have detected some unusual activity on your account and, as a result, we've temporarily locked it for your protection. You may unlock your account immediately by changing your password.
I did check that I was logged into my account and that the security was correct on the page and nothing seemed out of order.

The next page tells me I have sucessfully changed my password. Great I can get my email fine.But I cannot send email without punching a verification code for every email.

To bypass this I have to provide so much more personal information and my mobile ph number.

Has anyone else come across this please
Thank you for any help that comes in.
