Yahoo users struggled to access their e-mails this morning when the site experienced technical issues, preventing customers worldwide from logging in.
The issues started at around 07:38am, according to DownDetector.
Yahoo is one of the most popular search engines worldwide and millions of users have a Yahoo e-mail account.
A spokesperson for the company apologised to its customers and said it would try to resolve the issue swiftly.
The reason for the outage remains unclear.
