How do I Get a New Yahoo Messenger ID?

By J.M. Chanel

Yahoo! Messenger is a popular Internet instant messenger service. Users who cannot log in to their existing account or wish to change to a new account may register a new account for free by visiting the Yahoo! homepage.

Recovery

If you have lost your account's password, you may still be able to use your existing account. Yahoo! has a password recovery system to help you change your password, but you must be able to remember the answers to the security questions you provided when the account was created.

New ID

If you need a new Yahoo! Messenger ID, visit the Yahoo! homepage and click the "Sign Up" link at the top of the page. Follow the steps and you will have a Yahoo! ID once you finish. Use the same log-in information for the Yahoo! Messenger program.

Precaution

Always remember your Yahoo! Messenger ID to avoid having to register multiple accounts. If you fear you may end up forgetting it, you may want to write it down on a piece of paper and put it in a safe spot.
