How to upgrade to a full Yahoo! account from a Facebook or Google ID
Learn how you may be limited if you sign in to Yahoo! using either your Google or Facebook IDs, and how to get full access.
When you sign in using your Facebook or Google login you are provided with limited access. Products like Yahoo! Mobile or Yahoo! Mail will not work until you upgrade to a full Yahoo! account.
To upgrade your account:
- Visit the Yahoo! Mail site, and sign in using your Google/Facebook ID.
- On the next page, you will be asked to verify your account. You will need to provide your user name and password a second time.
- Once you have selected a new ID and password, click Upgrade My Account.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to choose Ymail.com or Rocketmail.com as your mail domain with an account created through the Facebook or Google login feature.
