Sign up for a Yahoo account

You're just steps away from using Yahoo Mail, Messenger, Fantasy Sports, and more when you sign up for a Yahoo account. You’ll need to provide a valid mobile number and some other info to register your account.

  Some accounts don't require a Yahoo ID and / or password - Some Yahoo products like Fantasy Sports and Flickr will let you create an account with an existing non-Yahoo email address. Depending on the type of account you create, you may still need to provide a password, date of birth, and agree to the Terms.
