- Always sign out completely. If you use a public or shared computer, be sure to fully exit your Yahoo! account at the end of each session. To do this, first click the \"Sign Out\" link on the left-hand navigation bar, and then click \"Sign Out Completely\". (If you have clicked on the \"Remember my ID and password\" box, signing out completely will disable that option.)
- Choose your password wisely. Choose a Yahoo! password that you will remember but that cannot be easily guessed, even by those who know you. Passwords are case-sensitive and can include numbers and special characters in any combination. You can use these combinations to make your password more difficult for others to guess (example: bullfrogs becomes Bu!!frog$). Do not share your password with anyone.
- Change your password when necessary. If at any time you become concerned about the security of your password, you can always change it online.
- Choose your Password Question and Secret Answer wisely. If you gave us a Password Question and Secret Answer during registration, be sure that you have chosen a Secret Answer that you will definitely remember, but which will also be difficult for others to guess from your Password Question. (Remember, it's possible for anyone who knows your Yahoo! ID and your birthday to see what your Password Question is.) If you would like to update your Password Question and Secret Answer, please forward the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Yahoo! ID
- Post code you included when you registered for this account, please include your Country
- Birthday you provided at registration
- Your current Password Question and Secret Answer
- The new Password Question and Secret Answer

Please note: your Yahoo! ID and password are your own confidential information. No Yahoo! employee will ever ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email message. If you are ever asked for your password in an unsolicited manner, or by someone you do not believe to be a representative of Yahoo!, do not share your password with them.
