    How do you delete a Yahoo ID?

    A:

    To delete a Yahoo ID, you need to close the Yahoo account. Yahoo keeps the account available for 90 days before it is closed for security reasons. However, the account is considered deactivated during that 90 day period, and it cannot be accessed unless the user specifically reverses the account closure. After 90 days, the account, including the Yahoo ID and all information and subscriptions related to it, is permanently deleted.
