how to delete a yahoo account

When I wrote about the Yahoo Mail Archiver I never expected to be deluged by requests for me to close Yahoo accounts. For some reason people began entering their Yahoo e-mail addresses into my e-mail notification form with the unsubscribe radio button selected.

At first I was curious why I was getting unsubscribe requests from people that were not on the notification list, but I eventually got some comments that clued me in to the fact that they thought I had the power to close their Yahoo accounts. The odd part is that I hadn’t even mentioned closing my account (in fact, it’s still open to this day). I was just explaining how you could archive your e-mail. It doesn’t make any sense, but a lot of things don’t make sense, so I just asked people to stop, and closed comments on the post so people would stop bugging me.

I wouldn’t have given it another thought, but this evening my sister asked me how to close her Yahoo mail account. I finally looked in the Yahoo help section to see how to close an account. As it turns out, it’s a very simple process. In retrospect, I should have made this information available to people instead of telling them to stop using my notification form, but that’s water under the bridge.

So, for anyone who still wants to delete their Yahoo account, don’t unsubscribe from my blog notification form, just do the following:

Go to the Yahoo account deletion page and login with your username and password. Then, to confirm once and for all that you want to delete everything associated with your login profile, enter your password again and click the button that says ‘Terminate this Account.’

Your account is now gone.





  1. Tanks, i did not know abt this

  4. The link works just fine. You have to login, and once you do it will ask you to confirm your account deletion.

  5. you know how u put a pet name to change your password well u should make another password to get to your pets name entry because people can guess and the pet entry password should be not changable

  6. This link below works perfect, I just deleted my yahoo account,
    you must try when the servers aren’t so busy…say…between 1am-9am EST which is 7am- 3pm European time:
    by the way if any needs a 1GB gmail send me your emails here:

  19. can I deleted my yahoo email account BUT keep my id for yahoo messenger?

      » Comment by jar771 on August 4, 2005 @ 6:16 pm
  20. jar771: I don’t believe so. The page I linked to is a page to delete your Yahoo account, not just your Yahoo Mail account, so if you use that, they will both be gone.

    However, after a period of inactivity (6 months I think), your Yahoo mail account will be marked inactive, then later closed. I don’t know if using your instant messenger account will keep the mail account active or not, but it’s possible that if you never use your e-mail account again, it will eventually be deactivated, while leaving your instant messaging account active.

  61. hi..someone used my id and spread what was inside my email…

    i just wanted to ask if i can delete the email and reuse it again? i mean if i can use the same ID again?

    I already called the attention of yahoo regarding this because the one who used it knew almost everything about me(bday, postcode,location,answer to the challenge question which was easy) unfortunately yahoo told me that they can not change it anymore..

    the ID is important for me because I use it for almost every application form i filled up. I already opened another account but since I have filed so many applications already, I just want to keep the same ID and just change some details.

    its so easy to change passwords as long as u know the answers to the questions. its making me uneasy that someone can log in to my account and read my emails and send it to some people..

    please do help.

    thanks a lot.

  71. It doesn’t matter if the account exists as long as you don’t use it, and even if you did delete it, if you’re disobedient, you could just create another one. If you are obedient, you will just stop using it, so there’s really no need to delete it.

MY LUN! Don’t people read? I mean, you would think that they can create an email address, thus they can read – at the least that dan.hersam.com has NOTHING to do with Yahoo. That’s like saying, “I’ll go to Kadoya Sushi to complain and return my Best Buy DVD player.”

    I cannot make my other profiles (alias id’s) inactive. The all say active but there is no selection for inactive status in the drop down menu. Although my main ID is in the invisible status, I think that the other alias profiles are showing as available. Where is the inactive selection?

  107. ds pandit: If you didn’t check your e-mail, you wouldn’t receive any messages from anyone.

    V: Then I guess you won’t be able to delete your Yahoo account.

  110. i just wanted to say:
    To Efrain Castro;
    i was wondering, why would you possibly want to keep your email’s and email address from your wife? it’s not fair for me as an outsier to ask this, but someone’s gotta speak on this womens behaf. i mean, she’s your wife, the person your suposed to trust and love the most. if you dont trust her with your messages, then maybe taking the time to talk with her will help better then changing any address.i’m not kidding, it really does help, and i’m sure she’ll feel more like she’s apart of your life for it.

    Jan, I’m really really sorry someone was unkind enough to use your information to try to hurt you. it isnt fair and it isnt right. i hope your doing alright, and that everything is resolved now. from what i’ve notied, you can put any answer into the yahoo question’s asked. for example: if it asks for yuor favourite dog, you can type in : “ilovethecardinals,” really, whatever you’d like to, and it will work. as long as you remember it, it should be just fine to write in there.

    Webmaster, webblogger(?). i thank you for your time and effort in helping everyone on this bord…(blog? i just kind of surfed on into thie website ) i know people are asking the same questions, maybe not understanding and it can be frustrating. but from there point of view, they may be new with computers…or even new with this part of computing. for me it helps to remember my very first week online,some years back. i didnt know what a website was, what “.com” was all about, and everything was like a brand new language. it seems fair to us because we’ve learned alot of that language, but it isnt very fair to them to have to bump and poke through learning online as i (and perhaps you) have gone through. (i just wish websites like yahoo would make it easer, and that everything online was designed in a way to compliment the user, not the system). anyway, many thanks for taking the time to help, and i hope you have a good day. cheers!

  111. mahogohney: Thanks for your comments and for pointing out that these people may be new to the internet. I should remember that, along with the fact that patience is a virtue.

  124. I just signed up for 360 cos I was curious but I really dont like it or want it and it’s not as easy to use as the one on MSN, How can I delete 360 without losing my yahoo account. I searched yahoo help looking for a contact us button so I could email someone but couldnt find any help at all…does anyone know what to do? Thanks to you all in advance from cold cold UK. HELEN 28 UK

  125. If you wish to delete your Yahoo! 360° profile completely, you must delete your associated Yahoo! ID :(
    You cannot make your Yahoo! 360° page disappear. But you can prevent it from displaying anything you’ve added to it. (by setting “who can see?” to “just me”. Unfortunately, as I know, there’s no other way!

  131. Thank you for this entertaining page. I am married to a geek, so I get to stay as ignorant as I want while still enjoying the benefits of knowledge, but even I could get a laugh at many of the comments here. I wonder what the general age group is.

    I came across your site trying to find out if I could transfer all of my My Yahoo info over to the new and improved ID I was finally able to set up (I think it was not available when I first tried). Apparently, it looks like I’ll have to set up all five pages from scratch before I can delete the original account (using it as an example). Major bummer, but I’ve hated the original address so it will be worth it. I never dreamed I’d have a problem deleting the first account when I am ready. I’ll keep this site in mind, tho, just in case reality eludes me.

    Thanks for your patience.

  137. Heres how to get a hacked Yahoo email account back: dial yahoo direct at 1-408-349-1572, talk to a customer service rep, explain what happened, that someone hacked you and changed your info. They will tell u to email this account and you have to return the info requested, DO NOT CHANGE anything in the subject line, and presto! They compare your given info to the ORIGINAL info NOT the changed info, and within 24 hrs or less u got it back! account-security-help@cc.yahoo-inc.com

    If this helps anyone, please come online in Yahoo in baseball chatroom MLB:1 and let me know it worked.
