Remove an alternate email address or mobile number from your account

  Important - If you only have one alternate email address or mobile number, you'll first need to add a new one before you can remove the old one. All Yahoo Accounts are required to list at least one alternate email address or mobile phone number in the Account Information.

Removing your alternate email address or mobile number

  1. Sign in to your Yahoo Account Information page.
  2. Under "Security," click Manage email addresses.
    Note - If the email address that you'd want to delete is listed as your primary email address, you'll need to set a new primary address first.
  3. Click Delete next to the email address or mobile number you'd like to remove.

Setting a new primary email address

  1. Sign in to your Yahoo Account Information page.
  2. Under "Security," click Manage email addresses.
  3. Select the email address that you'd like to set as your new primary email address.
    - It can't be the same email address that you'd want to remove.
  4. Click Save.
