Secure your Yahoo account

Keep your information private and prevent unauthorized access to your account. Safe sign-in methods, up-to-date contact info, and good online habits help keep you secure and safe from scammers.

Use Account Key

Use Account Key for a more secure login that doesn't require a password.

Do this if you use a password

  • Use a strong password and change it regularly - Create a strong password to minimize the risk of unauthorized account access.
  • Add another level of security - Turn on two-step verification and get sent a security code when someone logs in from an unfamiliar device or location.

Always practice safe online habits

In addition to using our tools to protect your account, you play a critical role in keeping it secure.
