Yahoo Sign In

You might be permanently logged in to your Yahoo account on your personal computer, but what if you need to sign into Yahoo on a friend’s computer, at work, or at the library? What if you just got a new smartphone or tablet and want to use it to sign into Yahoo? In this article, we’ll guide you through the entire Yahoo sign in process from start to finish.

Signing in to Yahoo on another computer

If you need to log into Yahoo at work to check your email, or at a friend’s house to see what movies are playing nearby, or for any reason at all, here’s what you need to do:

Open any internet browser and go to the homepage at Yahoo.com. Up in the corner of the screen, there should be a Yahoo Sign in button. If it says your name, that means you’re already signed in. If it says someone else’s name, that means that they are currently logged in and you’ll need to log them out. Just click on their name and select “Sign out”.

Now, click the “Sign in” button to go to the Yahoo login page. Here, you’ll need to type in your Yahoo ID (username/email address) and your account password.

If other people use this computer besides you, you’ll want to uncheck the option that will make you “stay signed in”. When you uncheck the box, you’ll be automatically logged out when you close the browser window, even if you forget to log out manually.

As long as you’ve entered your email address and password correctly, click the “Sign in” button, and you are now signed in to your Yahoo account!

Signing in to Yahoo on a new mobile device

Let’s say you always use Yahoo for email, weather, news, stock market info, and more, and you’d like to sign into your Yahoo account on your smartphone or tablet.

First, you need to download the Yahoo Mail application from your device’s official store (i.e. Play Store for an Android phone or tablet, App Store for iPhone, etc.). The first time you launch the app, you’ll be prompted to sign in to Yahoo using your existing email address and password, just like you would on the computer.

Now, just tap the “sign in” button to be taken to your Yahoo Mail inbox!

If you want to use Yahoo’s other services on the go, they have separate apps for:

  • Email
  • News, sports & entertainment
  • Messenger (instant messaging/chat)
  • Weather
  • Yahoo search

Depending on your device, you may or may not have to sign into Yahoo separately for each of these apps. However, once you’ve signed into Yahoo the first time on your mobile device, you’ll remain logged in all the time (unless you uninstall the app, of course), so you won’t have to enter your ID and password every single time you check your phone.

And that’s that! Now you can sign into Yahoo from anywhere, whether it’s a computer or a mobile device, and get access to this great, free email service that has stood the test of time.

Gmail sign up

These days, the Gmail sign up process is just as quick and easy as any other free email platform, but that wasn’t always the case. When Google first released a beta version of Gmail.com to the public, after having used it already for the company’s internal email system, there was a need to keep things small in the early phases of beta testing. This is because Google had decided to offer 1 GB of free storage space for Gmail for every user, which frankly was insane at the time – this is in 2004, when the standard storage space offered in free email was less than 5 MB. Furthermore, the Gmail development team had limited technical resources to support all this storage space.

Invitations for Gmail signup

The solution to this problem was to give only 1000 select people the ability to create a Gmail account when it was first released on April Fool’s Day, 2004. These 1000 users then had the option to send a limited number of Gmail invitations to their family and friends.

The entire beta testing phase for Gmail lasted nearly 5 years, and during that time Gmail sign up invitations were a hot commodity. You couldn’t just go to the website and sign up for a new account unless you had an invitation, and people were even turning to eBay to buy and sell invitations!

Luckily, Gmail sign up invitations are a thing of the past, and you no longer have to go searching for them on eBay or on special invitation swap sites. Today’s Gmail sign up process, as I said, is very quick and easy. In this article, we’ve got step by step instructions for you to create your new Gmail account.

Steps to sign up for Gmail

First, you have the option to sign up for Gmail using their website on your PC or Mac computer, or using their mobile app. You can go to the website by going to Gmail.com, or download the app from your device’s official store (if you have an Android, Gmail should already be installed as a system app).

Whether you go to the website or the mobile app, Gmail will take you to their sign in page, where you would enter your email address and password if you had one. Since you don’t have an account yet, click on the link to “create account” below the sign in box.

On the Gmail sign up page, you’ll have to choose your account username/email address, password, and enter some basic information like your name, mobile phone number and an alternate email address. Your username has to be unique, and Google will tell you if you need to try something else because someone has already taken the name you selected.

It’s highly recommended to enter a mobile number and a backup email address; this gives you a way to recover your account in case you ever forget your Gmail password.

Finally, type in the Captcha code to prove you’re not a robot, indicate that you agree to Google’s TOS and Privacy Policy, and click the button that says “Next step”.

That’s it! You just signed up for a new Gmail account, and you’ll be taken to your inbox for a quick tour. Don’t forget to check out all the other awesome tools you get with your Gmail account, like Google Drive, YouTube, Calendars, Hangouts, and more.

Create Skype Account

Skype was the first widely used program for video chat in the early 2000s, and several years later it is still one of the most popular communication apps, even holding its own against strong competitors like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. Although it was most famous for video calls, you can also use Skype as a regular instant messenger or even to make voice calls – calls are free from Skype account to Skype account or to a mobile number that has Skype mobile. And you can even use it to call landline or mobile phones that aren’t associated with a Skype account at all for a very reasonable rate.

If you want to start connecting with your friends, family and colleagues on Skype, you’ll first need to create a Skype account. Don’t worry – the process is quite simple, and I’m going to walk you through it one step at a time. You might even already have one without even realizing it!

How to create a Skype account

Before you go and create a new Skype account, let’s make sure you don’t already have an account that can be used on Skype without realizing it. A few years ago, Skype was acquired by Microsoft, which means that any Microsoft account is now automatically a Skype account. So if you have a Hotmail or Outlook email address, MSN account, Windows Live account, OneDrive, Xbox Live, or any other type of account for an official Microsoft service, 9 times out of 10 you can use that same exact username + password to log in to Skype. You won’t know for sure until you try!

Now, if that doesn’t apply to you, or if you simply want to create a new Skype account that isn’t associated with any of your existing accounts, you can continue with the following step by step instructions to sign up for Skype:

  1. Either download the Skype app to your smartphone and tap on the “sign up” button, or go to the home page online at Skype.com. On the home page, click on the little arrow next to the “sign in” button, and find the link that invites you to sign up if you don’t already have a Skype account.
  2. You’ll be prompted to enter your mobile phone number and a password to go with your account. If you would rather have your new Skype account linked to your email address, you can do that by clicking on the “use your email instead” link. This is also where you’ll choose your Skype account password.
  3. Skype will ask for your full name on the next page. Enter it and click “next”.
  4. Finally, they’ll send you a verification code or link to either your email address or phone number, whichever you used to set up the account. Follow the instructions to verify the account, and continue on to the next step.
  5. You may be asked to fill out additional information like birthday, location, language preferences, etc. before your account is ready to go. Enter in all the necessary information, and click the button to create your new Skype account!

Sign in Hotmail

It’s not very complicated to sign in to Hotmail once you understand a little bit about exactly what it is and its history. As with most websites, email services, etc., the actual Hotmail sign in process isn’t rocket science, but unlike those other sites, it has undergone so many name changes in the past 20 years or so that it all can get a little confusing. Is it still Hotmail? Well, what’s this Outlook thing then? And what the heck is a Microsoft account??

Sign in Hotmail

sign in hotmail

So, here’s the thing: they all pretty much mean the same thing these days. Hotmail was acquired by Microsoft in 1997, later becoming “Live” (short for Windows Live Hotmail), and ultimately being merged with MSN services, and the end result of all of this was the new Outlook.com which rolled out a few years ago.

That’s why, when you go to “Hotmail.com”, the URL will actually say “login.live.com”, and you might see the word “Outlook plastered all over the page while simultaneously being asked to sign in with your “Microsoft account”.

Now that we’ve taken care of that, let’s get on to the steps to follow to sign in Hotmail!

Steps to sign in to your Hotmail account

The first step we’ve already covered. Go to Hotmail.com in your web browser, and when it redirects you to another domain that says Outlook and Microsoft account, etc., don’t worry because you’re in the right place to sign into your Hotmail account. Hotmail is, in fact, one of several different types of Microsoft accounts that you can use for associated services like OneDrive, Skype, Xbox Live, and many others.

The second step is to enter your Hotmail email address into the first field. If you happen to have an email address ending in Outlook, MSN, Live, or any other incarnation of Microsoft, you can use that to sign in here too. It’s all the exact same service nowadays. But it is important to type the correct domain that was given to your email address when you first created the account.

The third step is to type your password into the second field. Hopefully you haven’t lost track of it! Type carefully and double check whether your keyboard has caps lock enabled or not if you have any problems. You might be able to recover a lost password with your mobile phone or a backup email address if you provided that information to Microsoft.

Alternatively, you can request a single-use code to sign in to Hotmail, which will be sent to your mobile phone via SMS. This is a good option for library computers or cyber cafes where you can’t be certain that there aren’t key loggers on the PC you’re using.

The fourth step is to decide whether you want the computer (browser, really) to keep you signed in all the time. This is a convenient option if you’re the only one who uses the computer, but you’ll generally want to leave the “keep me signed in” box unchecked on any other computer.

Last step is to click on the “sign in” button. If your Hotmail login information was correct, you’ll be taken straight to your inbox!

Create Yahoo Account

Yahoo! is one of the top reliable and long-standing email services – and of course, it’s free, fast, and easy to set up. If you don’t have a Yahoo mail account, you can create one from the Yahoo website on your computer or from the Yahoo Mail mobile app on your smartphone or tablet. Then, set up your new account just the way you want, and enjoy the all of Yahoo’s features, and the best ever experience for staying in touch with everyone with an attractive interface and high security.

Create a Yahoo Account

Creating a new Yahoo account on the Yahoo Mail mobile app

Download the Yahoo mobile app from your device’s store: App Store for iOS, Play Store for Android, etc. Install the app just like you normally do, then open it to set create a Yahoo account.

At the initial launch, you will be asked to sign in or create an account. If you don’t have a Yahoo Mail account yet, select “Create Account”. You will be brought to the “Sign up” page in a new window/screen. This is where you will be asked to enter some fairly standard personal information: your name, birth date, mobile number, and gender.

Choose a unique username which will be your main Yahoo Mail username and ID/email address. Then, create your password when your username is accepted. On the next screen, Yahoo will ask to verify that you’re real with a valid mobile number. By tapping “Send SMS” button, a verification code will be sent to your mobile number. Once you receive it, type it in place in the verification window and tap the “Submit code” button to proceed.

And that’s it, you’re all done! Now you are signed into your new Yahoo account, and you can start setting it up and using it.

(Note: creating a Yahoo account on your computer uses almost exactly the same steps, but instead of downloading the app in the first step, you’ll start by going to yahoo.com and clicking “sign in”.)

How to set up your Yahoo account

Your newly created Yahoo account gives you lots of options to personalize things exactly the way you like them. You can set up the options of viewing your email, for example: “Enable conversations” to display the entire email thread in chronological order, or “Show snippets” to display a short overview of your messages while viewing them.

You can choose your multitasking preference, message list density, set up the “Read” flags, change your “Message Handling”, personalize your “Writing Email” options, and save time by “Automatically adding new recipients to Contacts”. You can also adjust the font and font size you like to use for composing your messages, and set a default signature to go with all your sent messages.

The most important way to optimize and streamline your email is to make groups of emails, either by topic, by sender, or by date. Or, you can make special folders for certain senders – whichever way makes most sense for you.

After creating folders and nicely cleaning out your Yahoo inbox, you can easily keep it tidy and organized. When you get a new email, it will go right into your empty inbox. But you can also use email filters so that certain senders go to their specific folders. Plus, you can filter incoming emails according to certain words or phrases within the header, recipient or “CC” fields, the subject line, or even in the text within the body of the email itself.

Create Hotmail account

Hotmail is the No.1 email service from Microsoft, with billions of users around the world and millions of new users every day. It has been rebranded several times in its history, most recently as Outlook.com to compete with Google Mail (Gmail).

“Hotmail” has changed its name to MSN Hotmail (1998 – 2006), then Windows Live Hotmail (2007 – 2011), Microsoft Hotmail (2011 – 2012), and finally to Outlook… or Microsoft account, depending on where you look (2012 – present). But they’re all the same thing, and even though it’s officially Outlook now, you can still get an “@hotmail.com” email address when you create a Hotmail account.

Why get a Hotmail account?

Hotmail is much better than you ever thought, and I’ll tell you how.

The new Outlook is modern with a fresh, clean design that’s intuitive to use, connected with live conversations, productive with free Word, Excel, and PowerPoint web apps built in, not to mention 7 GB of free, private cloud storage. It works on your PC, Mac, phone, and tablet.

There are so many features to talk about in Outlook/Hotmail, such as:

  • Unlimited storage space in your Hotmail inbox, which automatically increases to provide as much storage space as the user needs.
  • Recover deleted messages, which is really helpful if emails were accidently deleted from the inbox, or after a hacked account is recovered.
  • Creating an email alias; if you want to use a temporary email address for a job site that you will dispose of later, or to sign up for online shopping, etc.
  • Instant actions, which are little buttons that appear beside sender names and subject lines in the email message list. This feature saves time, letting you delete, flag, or mark a message as read/unread/junk in one tap without even opening the message.
  • Sign in with a single-use code which you can use instead of a password. This feature is handy when using a public computer. You can request a code when you need one and it will be sent to the mobile number you have added to your Microsoft account for secure login.
  • Renaming your email address.
  • Cleaning your Hotmail inbox with a quick “Sweep”.
  • Sorting e-mails by date, sender, etc.
  • Arranging emails by size.
  • Sending large attachments using SkyDrive.
  • Sending and receiving emails from any POP-enabled Account: Gmail, Yahoo! Mail Plus, etc.

How to create Hotmail account

Creating a Hotmail account is super easy. On the Hotmail website, www.hotmail.com, you’ll have the option to sign in, or to sign up with Windows Live and a Hotmail address. Click the “Sign Up” button, and fill out the information requested on the sign up page. Here, you’ll choose your email address, and enter personal and security information. Choose your unique account name in the Microsoft account name field, and select “@hotmail.com” for your email domain (default setting is outlook).

You’ll need to create a password. As indicated, it should be at least 8 characters, case sensitive, and numbers are recommended too for greatest security.

Fill in as much additional information as possible to help recover your password in case you lose it.

Agree to the terms of service and privacy policy to complete the process. And voila! You just created a new Hotmail account!
