Set up, use and manage the Yahoo account key to login without a password

Tired of remembering and managing multiple passwords? The account password is more secure and allows you to use your mobile phone instead of a password to log in. Once enabled, Yahoo sends a notification to the mobile device of your choice. You can approve access with a tap on your phone so that no one else can access your account.

Configure the account key from a web browser

You must have at least one Yahoo application installed on your mobile device and be logged in to it.

  1. Go to the security page of the Yahoo account.
  2. Click or tap See how it works.
  3. Select your device and application to be notified.
  4. Click or tap Send me a notification. -> A notification will go to the application you selected.
  5. On your mobile device, touch the Approve icon Image of the accept account key button.
  6. Back in your web browser, click or tap Always use the Yahoo account key.
  7. Confirm your mobile phone number, which is used if you lose access to your device.

  5. You may be asked to enter or touch a verification code to confirm.
