Don’t copy paste your password in the required field.
Never use a single password to all your accounts.
Don’t open suspicious files.

In E-mail accounts or such service providing places time to time look in to the recent activity pages.
Time to time change with a new password and select the option to log out from all the devices.

As per Yahoo:
You’ll no longer need to remember complicated passwords when you use Yahoo Account Key to access your account. To sign in, tap “Yes” on the notification we send to your mobile phone. With Account Key enabled, there’s no password on your account, so no one other than you can sign in.
Also check your email service providers advice in their website.
