How to Change Your Yahoo! Sign-In Name

Instructional steps to follow

  1. Sign in to your Yahoo! email account as you would normally. Click "Options," then "Mail Options" on your Yahoo! dashboard.
  2. Click "Accounts" on the left-hand sidebar. Choose "Add or edit an account" from the main window.
  3. Select "Account Information" on the next screen. The system prompts you to sign in again with your password. This brings up the "Yahoo! Account Info" page.
  4. 4 Scroll down a bit and select "Manage your Yahoo! aliases." A new screen appears describing the purpose of having a Yahoo! alias.
  5. 5 Click "Add an alias" and type in a new name. This name has to be unique--no other Yahoo! user can have it. You may have to try a few names before the system accepts one.
  6. Take note of your new alias name and click "Close."
  7. Log out of your Yahoo! account. Log back in to your account with the new alias name.

how do i change my yahoo password


When you sign up for a free Yahoo! account, you gain access to the extensive features of the Yahoo! community and receive a free email account.

As with any account, it is a wise idea to change your Yahoo! password a few times a year in order to ensure its security.

Knowing where to go in Yahoo! to change your password will allow you to do it quickly.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account.

Click on your Yahoo! name at the top of the webpage to access drop-down options.
Select the "Profile" option.

Your account page will open.
Place your cursor over "Account Info" in the toolbar.
Options will again drop down.

Click "Change Password."

Type in your current Yahoo! email password in the first text box.
Enter your new Yahoo! password in the lower two text boxes.

Click "Save."

Your Yahoo! password is now changed.
