Reactivate a closed Yahoo account

All that's required to reactivate an account is to sign in.

You can reopen it as long as it was closed within approximately the last 40 days, with longer hold periods for accounts registered in Australia or New Zealand (approximately 90 days), and Brazil or Taiwan (approximately 180 days).

Yahoo can never reactivate your account if:

  • The account was deleted due to inactivity.
  • There was a violation of our Terms of Service.
