Sign up for a Yahoo account

You're just steps away from using Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Finance, and more when you sign up for a Yahoo account. Create a new account or use an existing email address from any email provider; you'll just need to provide a password, date of birth, and a mobile number.

  1. Go to the Sign up page.
  2. Enter your info in the required fields.
  3. Click Continue and follow the onscreen prompts to verify your mobile phone number.
