There is no doubt that Yahoo is well known worldwide for its amazing services; it provides users all around the world with a great search engine and many other services and sites, such as: mail, news, finance, sports, celebrities and many more for you to discover.
Create a Yahoo account
Don’t have a Yahoo account yet? Well, you don’t have to wait any longer! After reading this article, you will be able to create your own free Yahoo account with this easy, step by step tutorial. It will only take a few minutes and will be well worth your time. Best of all, it’s completely free!
1) The first thing you have to do is type edit.yahoo.com/registration in the address bar of your browser, whether you are using an Android phone, iPhone, tablet or your personal computer. You can also search for something like “Yahoo registration” or “Yahoo sign up”.
2) If you didn’t enter the URL address directly, then you will choose “Yahoo registration” from the search results as shown in the picture below:
Now you are ready to create your free account.
3) After clicking on “Yahoo registration” a new window or tab will open:
Now all you have to do is fill the empty fields.
You should make sure that you are entering correct information about yourself, so that your friends and family can easily find you.
Write your first name. As you can see, you can’t escape that “required” field.
I recommend that you use your real name, so that you will be recognizable by your family and friends.
Write your last name, again, using your real name will ensure your contacts will recognize you.
Next, you will need to choose your Yahoo username; it should be unique and memorable. If you’re stuck for ideas, I recommend using a familiar name with a number like Emma95@yahoo.com. You don’t need to add “@yahoo.com ” since it is already there.
Note: good choices for numbers could be the last few digits of your phone number or your birthdate.
Select your password; make sure that you are using more than eight characters to make your password strong enough. Your password should be easy for you to remember but hard for others to guess. If you contain personal details in your password, for example, your pet’s name, make sure you add numbers and special characters so hackers can’t guess it.
Add your mobile phone number; it must be 100% correct and don’t forget your country code and area code.
Add the day, month and year of your birth.
Select your gender, male or female.
Add an optional recovery phone number in case you forget your password and need it texted to you. You can skip this step if you want. Add your relationship with the owner of that phone number.
Finally: click on the “create account” button.
After creating your Yahoo account
Congratulations! Now you have set up your new Yahoo account and you can enjoy the many different services offered to Yahoo members.
One of the first things you’ll want to do is add contacts so that the people you email most often are saved in your Yahoo account. From your inbox, go to the upper left-hand corner and you should find an icon that looks like a little address book. Clicking on this will take you to your contacts tab, which will list all your existing contacts and give you options to add new ones.
Your Yahoo account conveniently lets you import contacts from other places, like Gmail and Facebook. You can also add new contacts manually by clicking on the “new contact” button in the upper left-hand corner.
Then, get started writing your first email by clicking the “compose” button! You can keep it simple or add lots of text formatting options, and even choose some fun “stationary” for the background of your message.
Once you start receiving emails, you’ll want to take a look at the different options Yahoo gives you to sort and organize your received messages, in folders, by archiving, etc.
If you want a really comprehensive tour of the basic functionality of your new Yahoo account, check out the automatic email that you’ve received from Yahoo with the subject “Yahoo 101” – it will walk you through all the different things you can do with your Yahoo username, including the various mobile apps you can download to your smartphone or tablet.
Otherwise, feel free to explore. You’ll see that up by the “contacts” button, there is also a calendar, notepad, Yahoo! Messenger, and a newsfeed. You also get your own personalized Yahoo homepage whenever you’re signed in to your account, which will show you relevant news stories based on your location, and other cool stuff like a stock tracker personalized with your “watch list” of stocks.
