Though, yahoo will suggest you some options if you are unable to compose an exclusive user ID for yourself. However, it is good that you create the unique ID on your own as it will be easy for you to recall it. Some tips to create a good user ID are
- Use the combination of letters and words. You can make your name and your birthday and anniversary day to create a good ID.
- You can mix the two names to create a unique ID.
- You can simply add some numbers like your date of birth or anniversary date in front of your name so that a unique ID is created.
Now, when your ID is finalized, it is time to create the password of your account. While creating the password you have to be very careful as easy to guess password can make your account prone to hacking. Therefore, while creating the password be little creative and tricky and do not make a simple password like your pet’s name, your anniversary date, your birthday date, your spouse birthday date, etc. Additionally, do not create the password which you are already using for your other account. For e.g. do not use your bank account password for an email password. Instead, create a fresh one with some difficulty to guess.
Now, when the user id and password is created, click on the next button to enter the details like your location, your date of birth, gender, etc. At the next step you will be asked to enter your alternate email id and phone number as well. Yahoo takes this information to make your account secure.
Yahoo uses this information to recover your account in case you lose your account access because of hacking or any other reason. Yahoo sends link to create password for your account either on your alternate email id or the phone number. The platform does not reveal this information or use this information inappropriately.
