Change your password

Your Yahoo password applies to all Yahoo services you use with your account. Because of this, we think it's a good idea to change your password at least once a year to keep your account information secure.

  You'll need to know your password before you can update it. Not sure what it is? Use our Password Helper.

Here's how to change it:

  1. Go to your Yahoo Account Info page.
  2. Enter your Yahoo ID and password.
  3. Click Sign In.
  4. Under "Sign-In and Security," click Change your password.
  5. Type your new password in the "New password" field, then type it again in the "Confirm new password" field.
  6. Click Continue.
  7. You'll get a message confirming that you successfully changed your password.
  8. Click Continue.
