The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) said it focused on the 515,121 UK accounts that London-based Yahoo UK Services oversaw as a data controller.

Yahoo's European regulator has ordered it to make privacy changes following a probe into what it said was one of the largest ever data breaches to impact EU citizens. Yahoo, most of whose assets were acquired by Verizon Communications Inc (VZ.N), said in 2016 that at least 500 million of its accounts had been hacked two years earlier by cyber thieves who may have stolen names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth and encrypted passwords. Ireland's Data Protection Commissioner (DPC), the lead European regulator on privacy issues for Yahoo because the company's European headquarters are in Dublin, said on Thursday that Yahoo's data processing operations did not meet the standards required by EU law.
