Options for creating a different Yahoo ID or email address

While it's not possible to change your Yahoo ID or primary email address, we have options if you're unhappy with your Yahoo ID :

  • Create an extra email address – a second Yahoo email address available with your existing Yahoo ID  account.
  • Create a Yahoo ID  alias – an extension of your Yahoo account that hides your primary ID.
  • If these options don't work for you, you can also start over and create a new Yahoo account. 

However, you can change your personal email address in Yahoo Groups. You can learn the steps in our overview of Yahoo Groups. Remember: any email addresses linked to your Yahoo ID must be verified to be used with Yahoo Groups.
