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!
