Change your language or location preferences in Yahoo

Access your "Account Info" preferences to adjust your preferred language, region, and to enable location services.

Update your language and region settings

  1. Sign in and access your Account Info page.
  2. Click Preferences on the left.
  3. From the "Language" menu, select your desired language and region.

Use location services to adjust your current location

Yahoo services update your location whenever the device you're using moves into a new area. It's not possible to manually change your default location from the location that's been detected.
