How Do You Set up a New Yahoo! Email Account?

Visit the Yahoo! login page and select the Create New Account button to set up a new Yahoo! email account. A new page appears in which you must provide information that Yahoo! requires to assign you a new email address.

  1. Go to the Yahoo! login page

    Point your Web browser to the Yahoo! login page. If you already had a Yahoo! account, you would log in on this page. Click the Create New Account button to begin the process of setting up a new email account.

  2. Enter your name

    Enter your first and last names in the appropriate fields on the page. Only letters, spaces, hyphens and apostrophes are allowed in these two fields.

  3. Enter your username and password

    Type your desired username into the box just below your name. If the name you have selected is not available, text appears on the page indicating that you must choose a different username to continue. Enter a password that is between 8 and 32 characters, includes at least one number and includes both uppercase and lowercase letters.

  4. Enter your mobile number

    Type your mobile number into the appropriate box. If you forget your username or password, Yahoo! can text you information to help.

  5. Enter other required information

    Enter your birth date and gender into the appropriate fields, then click Create Account.
