Welcome to VisiHow. My name is Nikki and this is a tutorial on how to open a Yahoo email account.
Double-click on the browser icon
In this example, we are using Internet Explorer and the homepage is set to Google.com.
Alternatively, you can click on the Yahoo link. The Yahoo homepage will open.
On the right side, click on "Mail" with a purple envelope
Click on the blue button, "Create Account"
Enter your first and last name in the first two boxes
Choose the email address you would prefer
It will end with "@yahoo.com". If the preferred address isn't available, choose something else.
Type in the desired password
Select your date of birth by click on the Month, Day, and Year boxes
We can also enter in an optional recovery number if we choose to
For example, we can enter in our other phone number or the phone number of someone close to us, just in case we forget our password.
Click on "Create account"
By clicking on "Create account", we agree to the Yahoo Terms and Privacy.
Yahoo will need to send a verification code to the phone number on the account
Click on "Send SMS" to verify your phone number. Click on "call you" in blue text if you would prefer that Yahoo calls us with a code instead.
When the code is received, enter it into the text box and click on "Submit code"
We need to enter a verification code to protect Yahoo from potential hackers. Yahoo is checking to make sure we are a real person.
If it is successful, a window will open that says "Congratulations"
A screen will pop up that says "Hi" with your name
Personalize your inbox with a theme by choosing a theme and clicking "Keep Theme". Click on "Not Now" to do this later.
The Yahoo account is now set up
