Signing In

You can use the BT Yahoo! Browser without signing in, but to take full advantage of the Browser's features, you must sign in to BT Yahoo!. When you’re signed in, you’ll see these additional features:

  • Quick access to all of your BT Yahoo! services including your BT Yahoo! Mail, BT Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! Search, and much more.
  • The option of signing in to all of your services with a single sign-in process.
  • A customised view of the Browser that best fits your needs

The first time you launch the Browser, enter your sign-in information in the Sign-In window.

 

Here’s How

  1. Launch the Browser.

    The first time you launch the Browser, it displays the Sign-In window, and your BT Username should be listed. Click your BT Username and skip to step 5.

  2. If you don’t see your BT Username on the list, click the Other Users button.
