How to Find Old Yahoo! Contacts

by Lyan Uaha

Yahoo! Members Directory lets you easily search for your old Yahoo! contacts. You should know some of their details, such as their Yahoo ID or the name to be used as a search criterion. If a contact has disabled public listing of her profile, then she will not be available on Yahoo! Members Directory. In that case, you cannot search for her on Yahoo!.


Click on the Yahoo! Members Directory link given in the Resources section below.


Log in to your Yahoo! account. If you have already logged in, then you will not be asked to log in again.


Type the name or the Yahoo! ID of the person you want to find in the “Find People” box and then click on the “Search” button. You will be shown matching search results. Click on a search result to view additional details about that member.
