How to Find People's Yahoo Profiles

Yahoo automatically creates a profile page for each new user who sets up an account with the online portal. Users can display their name, age, location and other details on a Yahoo profile. The only way to view someone's profile is through Yahoo Instant Messenger.

Your contacts have profiles associated with their accounts.

Step 1

Sign in to Yahoo Instant Messenger.

Step 2

Find your friend on your contacts list. If they aren't online and aren't visible in your list, click the arrow next to Contacts above your list of contacts and choose "Show Offline Contacts."

Step 3

Right-click to view a profile.

Right-click the person's name and choose "View Profile."
