Yahoo! offers numerous services on its extensive website. Some of these services are free to use and others require you to pay. The Yahoo! Account page is where you keep track of your Yahoo! services as well as the information associated with your account. You can edit your profile, contact information, payment information, photos and other information. If some of your information has changed, you can easily update it from any Web browser.

Open a Web browser and go to the Yahoo! Sign In page.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password into the appropriate boxes and click the "Sign In" icon.

Click the drop-down menu next to your name at the top of the page and select "Account."

Re-enter your Yahoo! password. The Account Info page opens.

Click on a link to go to that section of your account. For example, click "Edit Profile Details" near the top of the page to change your Yahoo! profile.

Click the "Edit" button to enter a specific area of each section. For example, in the My Info section, click the first "Edit" icon to change your name, gender and location.

Click "Save" at the top of the page each time you finish editing an area.


Use the tabs on the left of the screen to quickly navigate among sections of the Account Information page.
