While most people would like to think that they will only ever need one password for their Yahoo! account, realistically this isn’t likely to happen. Instead, it is much more likely that you will be changing your password at least once or twice a year. The question is, do you know how to change your Yahoo! password?

It really isn’t very difficult, at least as long as you follow these simple steps.

  1. Log in. Before you can actually make any kind of changes to your Yahoo account, you will actually need to get into the account. This basically means that you need to sign in as you normally would. This is done by first entering your account name (which is typically something like and then entering your password.
  2. Select account info. Hover the cursor over your name, and you will be given a few options of things that you can do to your account. For example, you could change the color settings of your Yahoo pages, or access your profile, or even account info. Click on the account info link, and then verify your account. This is a security measure to make sure that you are authorized to make the changes.
  3. Select change your password. Now that you are on the account information page, look for the section with the title Sign-in and Security. In this section of the page you will find a link that says “Change your password,” click that.
  4. Create a new password. You should now be on a new page. At the top of this page it should say “Change your Yahoo! password.” You will need to enter your current password, and then enter your new password twice. One of the nice things about Yahoo is that it will help you determine whether or not your new password is a strong one or not. Entering the new password twice will allow the system to make sure that you don’t accidentally make any mistakes while you are entering it. Hit the save button.

After you have hit the save button, you have finished changing the password to your Yahoo! account. Make sure that you have chosen a password that is not only easy for you to remember, but also hard for others to guess at. In the event that you don’t have the best of memories you may want to consider writing the password down in a secure location.
