Device lock/protection for my Yahoo account?

Is there any way to restrict what devices can access my Yahoo Mail?
I have something similar with Facebook, so it's just my phone, my iPad and my laptop that can access it and I get a warning if something else tries.
My Yahoo Mail was hacked recently, and I think it might've been from connecting to an unprotected WiFi network with my phone.

Yes, in your settings on the Yahoo webpage you can revoke access to apps that have been linked to your Yahoo account. Say you had a Nokia phone 6 years ago that pulled your mail, or an Android app... Anything you ever used to access your email basically - it's liated and you can delete their access credentials.
I'm posting this from a phone, so I might link later. Or you just search Yahoo Settings or Help - "revoke access"!
