Remove an ID from your browser's auto-fill feature

While it's convenient to have your Yahoo IDs automatically appear when you sign in to Yahoo, you can control the specific IDs your browser's auto-fill feature displays.

Removing an auto-fill ID

Internet Explorer and Firefox

  1. Make sure there is no text in the field where you enter your Yahoo ID.
  2. Double-click in the text field.
    - A pull-down list of auto-fill IDs will appear.
  3. Move your cursor over the ID that you want to remove so that it's highlighted.
    - Don't click the ID.
  4. Once the Yahoo ID is highlighted:

Good to know: If a password was saved for the account in Internet Explorer, you'll be asked if you want to delete it.
