Update your Yahoo Account recovery information

    1. Personal info - Edit your name, address, phone number, alternate email addresses, or primary email address.
    2. Account security info - Change your password, phone numbers, email address, or enable two-step verification.
    3. Recent activity - Manage your app and website connections and view the locations that your account has recently been accessed from.
    4. Preferences - Change your favorite locations, current location or address, and content preferences for personalized news or social media.
