You’ve probably heard or read about Yahoo (aka Yahoo!) at least once in your life if you live in the twenty-first century. Despite the fact that Yahoo has been a leader on the internet since its inception (1995), you may not know exactly what it is or what it does. Even those who already use Yahoo may not be aware of all the possibilities available to them! So let’s get everyone up to speed and address those two basic questions: what is Yahoo and how to use it effectively to gain profit.
You must first register on Yahoo and create a Yahoo account in order to access some of the best things Yahoo has to offer. You can read the news, check the weather, and track stock prices on Yahoo without joining up, but everything gets better and more personalized if you have your own Yahoo account.
Create Yahoo Mail Account
A computer with an internet connection is required to begin the Yahoo account registration procedure. Go to www.yahoo.com in any web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari). You’ll see something like this on your homepage:
There is no direct link to a new account registration on the homepage, but you can get there by clicking the “Sign in” icon in the upper right hand corner.
This will direct you to the login page for people who already have Yahoo accounts. To create a new account, just click the link at the bottom that says “create new account”.
You will now be directed to the Yahoo sign up page, where you will fill out your personal information, select a username/email address, and create a password for your account.
Yahoo will propose usernames for you, but you don’t have to use them as long as you choose a name that isn’t already taken. My initial option wasn’t available, as you can see.
If your desired name is already taken, the simplest approach to make it unique is to add some numbers to the end. The following step is to create a password for your Yahoo account. It should be a secure password that you can remember but that no one else can guess. My first password choice was an all lowercase dictionary term, which is an extremely weak password that Yahoo does not allow because it exposes your account to hackers.
I chose a password with more characters, including numerals, special characters, and uppercase letters, to make it stronger.
All you have to do now is provide your phone number, date of birth, and gender. Your phone number is crucial since it can be used to validate your account and assist you in recovering your password if you forget it. Make sure you select the correct country code and input your phone number!
Ad second recovery number in Yahoo
You have the option of entering a second recovery number, but it is not required.
Finally, select “Create account” from the drop-down menu. To verify you’re not a robot, you’ll be asked to input a captcha code, and Yahoo may send you an SMS text message with a verification code. Continue after entering these codes as requested.
Tadaa! Your new Yahoo account has been established, and you will be taken to your new Yahoo homepage. You’ll notice that you’ve been automatically logged in, and your Yahoo homepage has been customized to your preferences.
This will be the first place you go when you connect into your Yahoo account from now on. You may access a variety of things from here, including your Yahoo email account. Feel free to explore and discover all of the fantastic features and tools available to you now that you’ve created a new Yahoo account.
How to Login and Sign Up
When you want to check your Yahoo email, what do you do? What if you’re at work and need to quickly check your Yahoo Finance stock watch list? On a public computer, how can you be sure you’re logged out of Yahoo? All you need to know is how to open and close a Yahoo account session. We’ll show you how to accomplish it step by step, using illustrations to help you along.
Yahoo Mail Login
To begin, open a web browser on your PC or mobile device and go to www.yahoo.com. It will resemble this (but with various news stories and images, of course):
If you’re using your typical computer and have previously viewed Yahoo, you may notice your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. If that’s the case, congrats! You’ve already registered. Otherwise, you should see a “Sign in” button.
You’ll be directed to the login screen after clicking the “Sign in” button.
This is where you’ll input your Yahoo ID (email address) and the password you created when you first set up your account. It’s important to remember that the password is case-sensitive.
Also, clear the option that says “Stay logged in” if you’re using a shared computer and wish to be signed out automatically after you stop Yahoo. It’s best to leave this option ticked on a home or personal computer so that you’re always logged in.
Simply click the blue “Sign in” button after entering your Yahoo email address and password to access your personalized homepage.
Your name, as well as any saved information, should now appear in the corner of the homepage (like your location for weather, etc.). You’ve signed up and are ready to go. It appears that I’ve received mail!
Yahoo Mail Sign Up
If you left the “Stay signed in” option unchecked while logging in, Yahoo will automatically log you out when you leave the site. If you clicked this box, or if you just want to make sure you’re completely signed out, take these steps:
If you haven’t already, return to the Yahoo homepage and look for your name in the upper right-hand corner. When you click on your name, a small drop-down menu should appear.
“Sign Out” is the last option on the menu. If you select this option, you will be returned to the Yahoo homepage without your account information. It’s now safe to walk away from the computer without fear of someone reading your email!
