Want to change your personal information in Yahoo? When you created an account at Yahoo, your name, nickname and date of birth was asked. What if you typed your name and personal information incorrectly.
Creating email address in Yahoo is very simple. Most of the times we only use our names followed by @yahoo.com when creating email address. But the problem is that we sometimes forget to check whether we typed correctly our personal details.
Maybe you’ll ask, is it necessary to typed our real name, address and date of birth? The answer is, it depends to the purpose or use of your email address. For personal and business use, we recommend to use real information. If the email address was only use for subscription or creating social profiles, then using “not real” information is fine. However, when verification, your phone number you used when creating email address should be your real phone number.
