Learn about Yahoo Account Key and stop using passwords

You no longer need to remember complicated passwords when you use Yahoo Account Key to access your account. To sign in, tap "Yes" on the notification we send to your mobile phone. With Account Key enabled, there's no password on your account, so no one other than you can sign in.


Update your Yahoo app - You'll need the latest version of our app to use Account Key.

Set up Account Key from a web browser, iOS or Android


Voila! No more passwords. To sign in from now on, you'll just need to enter your username and click Continue and then we'll send your phone a notification to approve access.
