To open a new Yahoo account, visit the "Yahoo! Registration" page, fill out the required information, then click "Create My Account." This account allows users access to all of the free Web-based services Yahoo! offers.
A new account can only be created after a user has provided Yahoo! with sufficient information, including their first and last name. The user must also create a new user account name and enter a strong password. Yahoo! also requires registrants to provide their genders, mobile phone numbers and birth dates. A Yahoo! account must be created before a user can access email.
