    I don't think that would be possible.  If it were how would we know our password or our chosen username?

    No, that's not how it works. The spam bot that set up your Yahoo email account automatically signed you up with YA. You have no idea how to access your email, do you?

    No, Yahoo does not automatically create (sign up) an account for you. YOU must do that. 

    .

    IF you have auto sign-in (you created an account and have allowed your browser or an auto-fill program to save your login info, in order to automatically sign you in without you having to type in the info yourself), then you may be automatically signed in to your Yahoo account by your browser or login software. Yahoo also offers the option, on the sign-in page, to "stay logged in" so that you will always be logged in UNLESS you manually log out of your account, for several weeks.

    Only if you have autofill turned on, and even then you still have to hit the login button. This is how to turn autofill on or off: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/sln2164.html

    No. You must create an auto sign in.
