How to Change My Ymail Password

By John Grossman

Yahoo! Mail, or Ymail, is a free webmail service from Yahoo!, Inc., which allows you to send and receive emails and keep a list of your contacts. Yahoo! Mail requires you to login with your Yahoo! ID and password, which are the same login credentials you use on all other Yahoo! services, such as Yahoo! Messenger or Yahoo! Finance. You can change your Yahoo! Mail password in just a few steps.

Step 1

Visit the Yahoo! Mail website using your favorite Internet browser. Log in to the service by using your current Yahoo! ID and password.

Step 2

Click on your first name, at the top left corner of the screen, next to the "Hello," greeting.

Step 3

Select the "Account Info" option from the drop-down menu. Type your password again and click on the "Sign In" button.

Step 4

Click on the "Account" tab and select the "Change password" option.

Step 5

Type your current password in the first field. Then type your new password in both the second and third fields. Click on "Save" to finish updating your Yahoo! password.

Tips & Warnings

  • Changing your Yahoo! Mail password also will change the password you use to connect to all other Yahoo! services.
