For example, it is much easier to use Yahoo! Shopping and Yahoo! Travel when your home address is correct. Providing us with accurate information allows us to give you the content you want and saves your time.
Another benefit of keeping your information up to date is in case you forget your password. You can get a new password, a Yahoo! ID reminder, or both. Visit the Sign-in Problems page and supply some basic verification information, such as your birthday and the ZIP or postal code you provided when you registered. After verifying this information, we will then send your ID and/or new password to your alternate email address.
