Yahoo Email 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.
Your Yahoo! password is now changed.
Reset Your Yahoo Password
Despite the care you took in choosing a password that was both memorable and secure, you forgot it.
Now what? No need to panic: Yahoo provides a simple three-step process that will allow you to reset your password and choose a new one even if you don't have an alternate email address.
Click on the "I can't access my account" link found under the Sign In button on the Yahoo login page.
Ensure that the first option in the list, "I forgot my password," is selected.
Enter your Yahoo ID and the shown verification code in their respective boxes.
Enter the alternate email address you provided when you registered with Yahoo in the text box, then click "Next."
Yahoo will send an email message to your alternate email address containing a link to reset your password.
Check your email and click that link.
If you did not provide an alternate email address when you registered or you have since lost access to it, select the radio button labeled "I can't access any of the above" and click "Next."
Type the answer to your first security question in the text box, click "Next," type the answer to your second security question in the text box then click "Next" again.
Enter your desired new password in the first text box, then enter it again in the second text box. Click "Next."
