The way I found out to edit my profile is to sign into yahoo mail, on the very top it says "hi, your name", there should be an arrow next to your name, click on the arrow and select profile, you should be able to edit your profile from there.

How to set the privacy settings on a Yahoo profile?

Yahoo used to hold profiles at but now all the profiles have been redone. I've had yahoo for like a decade now and was not aware that my profile was gone. He's not lying to you he just hasn't been made aware and set his new profile up yet. Inform him that he needs to do so if you're going to be able to view it.

  4. In the lower portion of the page, click Add an alias.
  5. Enter a new alias in the box that opens.
  6. Click Save.
