If by 'account', you mean your free Yahoo Mail account, then you cannot deactivate it. Only Yahoo can do that. Your account will be automatically deactivated if you do not log in for a period of 120 consecutive days (4 months).

There is another option for you though. You can delete your account, if you know that you're not going to be using it.

To request deletion of your Yahoo mail account, click on this link:

https://edit.yahoo.com/config/delete_use…

The deletion process can take up to *90* days, even after you have requested that Yahoo remove your account, so do not be concerned if your account still appears to be active for awhile.

How do I deactivate my account?
You can deactivate your account temporarily and choose to come back whenever you want.
To deactivate your account:
  1. Click the account menu at the top right of any Facebook page
  2. Select Settings
  3. Click Security in the left column
  4. Choose Deactivate your account then follow the steps to confirm
If you deactivate your account your profile won't be visible to other people on Facebook and people won't be able to search for you, though some information, such as messages you sent to friends, may still be visible to others.
If you'd like to come back to Facebook anytime after you've deactivated your account, you canreactivate your account by logging in with your email and password. Your profile will be restored in its entirety (ex: friends, photos and interests). Remember that you will need to have access to the login email address for your account in order to reactivate it.
If you can't get into your account, you can reset your password.
To permanently delete your account:
Permanently deleting your account means you will not ever be able to reactivate or retrieve any of the content or information you've added. If you would like to permanently delete your account with no option for recovery, please contact us.

Delete facebook permanently


Hi there!
There are two options for getting rid of your Facebook, Deactivating and permanently deleting.

Deactivating will hide your profile but some posts may still be visible and your account can be reactivated at any time. Deleting will remove your facebook information permanently and can not at any time be reactivated.

To Permanently delete your account instead of deactivating you will want to log into your account and go to this link:

Facebook

Then follow the directions to permanently delete your account.

Have a fantastic day!

My account has been deactivated I need it restored


Recovering or reactivating a deleted Yahoo account
To reactivate your account
  1. On a desktop or laptop computer, visit the Yahoo Sign In page.
  2. Enter your Yahoo ID and password.
  3. Confirm your Yahoo ID and complete the CAPTCHA verification.
  4. Select Reactivate at the bottom of the page.
If successful, the reactivation can take up to 24 hours. Keep in mind that some account data may be lost and not recoverable.
While it may be possible to recover certain deleted or inactive Yahoo Mail accounts, recovery isnot possible if:
  • The account was deactivated due to a violation of the Terms of Service.
  • The account was deleted due to inactivity (you must sign-in at least once every 12 months).

If the above options don't explain why your account was deactivated, there's a chance that a third party deleted it. Just to be safe, we recommend changing your password to secure your account. Check out our Yahoo Security Center for more information about online security.

Additional Information
You can upgrade to a Yahoo Mail Plus or Yahoo Mail Premium Mailbox account to protect your account from dormancy in the future.
Note: Yahoo Mail Plus is not available in all regions.
