Close Yahoo Email Account Permanently

I finally got around to closing my Yahoo free email account. I have been planning on getting rid of this account for years now. Free email accounts have their advantages and disadvantages.

Also, I am removing my Internet footprint so to speak. It may be productive for you to learn how to host your own email service. You can obtain a virtual private server and host your own email.

There are paid for email service providers. However, I do not necessarily trust them. Anyways, now I am going to discuss how to close Yahoo email account permanently.

At one time you could delete your Yahoo email account via somewhere in your profile and or account settings. When I went to close Yahoo email account permanently, I could not find where to perform this action. It could be buried somewhere in a menu that I did not find.

You can close Yahoo email account permanently now. You will need to login in or already be logged into your Yahoo email account. You will be presented with a lengthy warning page.

If you scroll down to the very bottom of this page, you will see a “Continue delete my account” button. You will be sent to another web page, where you have to type in your Yahoo email address. A “Yes terminate this account” blue button will be visible.

Once you click on that button, you will see a page notifying you that your account has been scheduled for deletion. Your Yahoo account now actually has been deactivated. There is a 30, 90, or 180 day grace period depending on what country you reside in.

This grace period allows you to reactivate your Yahoo email account. I tested this feature, and you are sent a code to your recovery email address associated with your Yahoo email account. Once you enter in this recovery code, you are then required to change your Yahoo email password.

Once you change your Yahoo email password successfully, then you can log into your Yahoo email account. There are some other stipulations that you might want to read over, before you close Yahoo email account permanently.

stas our own Tony de aina Kabir Khan
00:04
motivator Potter to you or I’m gonna
00:05
finally remove my yahoo email account
00:09
that I wanted to remove now for yours I
00:12
just finally got around to it alright so
00:14
let’s cut to the chase I’ll give you a
00:17
couple of gold tips at the beginning of
00:19
the video make certain though when you
00:23
do delete your yahoo email account that
00:25
you take it serious and then here’s my
00:28
first gold tip according to my studies
00:31
when you delete your yahoo email account
00:33
after the grace period
00:34
you do get a grace period to see the 30
00:36
90 or 180 days depending on which
00:38
country you reside in after that grace
00:42
period is permanent however the second
00:45
person that comes along and uses that
00:48
same email address let’s as an example
00:51
government sucks at yahoo.com govern
00:54
mint sucks at yahoo.com if you use that
01:01
email address for recovery purposes like
01:05
to log in to your dumb device your cell
01:10
phone or your Android or whatever or
01:12
your iPhone or you used it to recover
01:14
your Apple identification or you used it
01:16
as a recovery for your banking website
01:20
information anything a face book
01:22
whatever it is what’s been happening is
01:25
that and you didn’t change your email
01:28
address and you still any tried to
01:30
recover that information the second
01:33
person that comes along would receive
01:35
your email messages and possibly get
01:37
into those websites did you know that
01:41
all right
01:42
my second gold tip is that you might
01:46
want to take it more serious if you’re
01:48
using your yahoo email for important
01:51
information make sure that you’re not
01:55
using it for recovery purposes for any
01:57
websites if you are go login to those
02:01
websites whether it’s a banking website
02:03
Facebook of social engineering I mean
02:06
social brainwashing I mean
02:10
any other website change it change it to
02:14
a different email address that you have
02:17
access to or change it to use a phone
02:19
number instead or whatever because if
02:22
you delete your yahoo email account and
02:25
then you forgot to change your recovery
02:27
address for let’s say a banking website
02:30
and then you forget your password or
02:32
somebody sort of convinced it and locks
02:34
you out and then you can’t get back in
02:37
because you don’t have access to your
02:38
Yahoo government sucks at yahoo.com
02:41
recovery email you might be fucked so
02:45
that that’s my second gold tip alright
02:46
so let’s cut to the chase
02:48
now you might also want to go through
02:50
the account and just delete all the
02:53
folders clean it up backup your email
02:56
messages backup your folders
02:59
I might make a second video showing you
03:00
how to use Thunderbird two to easily
03:04
backup your e-mail from yahoo it there’s
03:08
a little there’s some technical details
03:10
you have to go through a bit it’s really
03:11
not that difficult
03:12
I might make that video I mean I just
03:14
don’t know click on the link in the
03:15
description box below that will take you
03:17
to my blog post on my website and it
03:18
covers com where I will include a direct
03:20
link to where you deactivate your
03:23
account
03:24
I think they removed it at one time it
03:26
was hidden you have to go through all
03:27
these menus either the account settings
03:29
or the privacy settings and then you to
03:32
finally stumble upon you know how do I
03:34
delete my or delete yahoo account I
03:36
think they removed it from everywhere
03:38
now well I couldn’t find it I went
03:40
everywhere I found the direct link so I
03:44
will include that and I will also
03:46
include a link to this help file that
03:49
gives you some tips and some additional
03:50
information I haven’t written with the
03:52
blog post yet but I don’t I might write
03:54
it now or you know sometime in the next
03:58
decade alright so quickly quickly I’m
04:04
not going to read verbatim that will get
04:05
you account terminated from YouTube all
04:09
right quickly so basically you want to
04:12
make sure that you don’t have
04:14
outstanding debt if you if the only
04:17
money you gotta pay that off first with
04:20
your yahoo account if you have any
04:22
subscriptions or maybe you have Yahoo
04:24
Mail Pro also it might be a good idea to
04:27
account you want to cancel any
04:29
subscriptions that you have with you
04:30
yahoo account counsel your yahoo mail
04:33
pro now that might be a different
04:35
process I’m not sure if if you did have
04:38
a yahoo mail pro would you use the same
04:40
link I just do not know that because I
04:42
do not own a yahoo mail pro my point is
04:44
that you there are certain restrictions
04:48
here so now also caveat emptor you’re no
04:52
longer gonna have your emails you’re not
04:54
going to have your folders you’re not
04:55
going to have your Flickr photos you’re
04:58
not going to have your calendar items
04:59
you’re not gonna have your Yahoo fantasy
05:01
garbage and your finance powerful all
05:04
that all the stock market just tanked
05:07
all of that couldn’t have been by design
05:08
do you really think what do you think
05:11
all this is going on in society you
05:12
think it’s all an accident to me it’s
05:14
all by design yeah anyways
05:23
there is it the – there’s a tool to
05:27
download the data but it’s not really
05:29
like a tool that will download it to you
05:31
to your desktop or I tried it and all’s
05:34
it does is it it’s part of my video that
05:36
I might make it helps you set up your
05:39
Thunderbird so that you can access your
05:42
yahoo mail and then I I know of a really
05:44
quick technique so and I’m not going to
05:47
discuss that further because you’re
05:48
gonna have to watch that video if I ever
05:49
record it you can download your Flickr
05:57
photos now I already went over the
06:01
account balance you cannot have a
06:04
outstanding balance here’s the yahoo
06:07
account terminate page which I’m going
06:09
to browse to and then you have a 30 day
06:14
grace period in most countries except
06:17
for Australia India or New Zealand you
06:19
have a 90 day grace period Brazil Hong
06:22
Kong or Taiwan you have a 180 day grace
06:25
period what that means is that if you
06:27
change your mind and you need access to
06:29
your yahoo email account you will have
06:32
either 30 90 or 180 days to log back in
06:35
now quickly did I let me go over what I
06:38
had to do because these are some
06:40
additional tips I had to I I tested it
06:43
out just a few minutes ago what happens
06:45
is that when you try to log into that
06:46
government sucks at yahoo.com email
06:50
account it does not allow you to type in
06:54
a password it automatically sends a code
06:56
to your recovery email address for your
07:00
yahoo account
07:01
I received the code I typed it in and
07:03
then it prompted me to change my
07:06
password I set a new password I was able
07:10
to log in and then so that feature works
07:13
you have 30 days or 90 days or 180 days
07:17
if you change your fucking mind
07:19
as the government brainwashes your mind
07:22
I mean massages your mind your goddamn
07:28
right error and we do
07:31
all right so are anything else
07:37
yeah it you have to verify your recovery
07:41
information which was a code that’s
07:43
that’s how I was able to log back in
07:46
okay so now let me because you should
07:49
always tread cautiously there’s assholes
07:52
and bitches on on YouTube and they will
07:55
all yeah they’ll come after you they’ll
07:57
find one piece of information all of a
07:59
sudden you can’t log into a website or
08:00
like that one YouTube content creator
08:03
which I will not name was swatted on a
08:05
live stream he was just helping people I
08:09
think he was helping people you know put
08:13
a computer together it’s not now you
08:14
don’t build anything that term build a
08:17
computer now you’re putting it together
08:18
anyways yeah he was on a live stream and
08:21
all of a sudden gots water if you don’t
08:22
know what that term means look it up it
08:27
was disgusting alright
08:32
all right now I’m clicking on the yahoo
08:35
account termination page and I just want
08:37
to make sure that there is no and I
08:40
already see it here’s a bonus at a tip
08:43
that is not necessarily dealing with how
08:45
to close your yahoo email account I’m at
08:48
the 8 minute what 49 50 51 second and I
08:51
try to keep my videos to 15 minutes or
08:53
less is that I can’t talk about it
08:57
because Yahoo excuse me YouTube there
09:00
are fascists or crooked there are
09:01
communists there are sensors they don’t
09:03
like they don’t allow free speech on
09:06
their platform there’s a term that H
09:08
word the computer security circumvention
09:14
circumvention there’s a concept called
09:18
social engineering you don’t want
09:22
anybody to obtain any information about
09:25
you because all it takes is one piece of
09:28
information and they can possibly
09:32
circumvent your social engineering I
09:36
mean social networking website you’re a
09:38
bank account you know business account
09:43
login or I’m not making that shit up so
09:46
you should always be cautious of what
09:49
you
09:52
disseminate into the Internet I am
09:59
looking at the sign-in page
10:01
[Music]
10:03
however I clicked on the termination so
10:05
let me try it again oh you know what I
10:08
have to
10:08
oh it makes me sign in I was signed in
10:11
and then all okay I changed my password
10:13
because I tested the reactivation and it
10:17
didn’t keep me inside it so let me sign
10:18
in really quick
10:28
okay I’m it’s signing in and now I want
10:31
now I want to make sure there’s nothing
10:34
here okay it’s all good I’ll show you
10:36
this page now you’re gonna see this page
10:39
so you have to log into your yahoo
10:40
account well duh in order to determine
10:42
it you’re gonna see this page before
10:45
continuing blah blah blah
10:47
yahoo flickr gives you some warnings
10:49
okay there’s billing blah blah blah okay
10:53
now this is what I like to see there is
10:55
a continue delete my account this is
10:57
awesome I have I’ve been waiting for
10:59
this day for a long time I am reducing
11:01
my social footprint on the Internet you
11:06
know I’m saying I’m trying to get rid of
11:08
as many accounts as I can I you know
11:10
what I might just say fuck it and you’ll
11:13
never hear me again you’ll never watch
11:15
another video because I just unplugged
11:17
my computer from the internet I mean
11:19
just fuck it just quit you know just
11:22
quit using the computers quit using the
11:23
internet because all it does is just
11:25
cause problems
11:26
I mean hurry so I’m not going to screen
11:28
capture this because I actually went
11:30
through this process before and it shows
11:32
information that I don’t want anybody to
11:35
see
11:36
you have to type your email message
11:38
excuse me you have to type in your email
11:41
account again so that’s what I’m doing
11:43
here
11:44
and then it’s got a blue button that
11:46
says he has to terminate this account
11:49
but I do not want you to know a certain
11:52
piece of information because I’m a
11:53
real-world computer technician and there
11:56
ain’t not now
11:57
there will be no swatting me fuck you
12:02
motherfuckers if you ever thought that
12:04
you could fucking SWAT me and knock and
12:07
get away with it back the fuck up before
12:10
you get smacked the fuck up because
12:12
that’s not how I roll man all right so
12:19
now I’m gonna click on the yes terminate
12:21
this account it’s thinking all right now
12:25
I can show you this screen and my
12:29
anarchist symbol I mean your account has
12:35
been deactivated and scheduled for
12:38
deletion you no longer have access to
12:40
this account which will be deleted from
12:41
our database got it yes sir I got it you
12:45
got it on and then I don’t think there’s
12:49
anything else but you just never know
12:52
I’m gonna click on the blue got it and
12:54
then where do you want to go to there on
12:57
it just took me back to the Yahoo
12:59
homepage
12:59
all right so we’re pretty much probably
13:02
done with screen capturing I have a few
13:04
minutes left I have two minutes left so
13:05
quickly I gave you a gold tip at the
13:09
beginning about warning you about using
13:13
Yahoo has a recovery apparatus because
13:15
the set the next person that comes along
13:17
to use that same email address
13:19
government sucks at yahoo.com which I
13:23
hope somebody does pick that hopefully
13:25
it’s already taken and hopefully their
13:28
anarchist art is that dot buyer beware
13:32
here here’s an additional tip I don’t
13:35
give our orders get it on anarchist I’m
13:38
against Authority if you’re offended by
13:39
that fuck you get off my youtube channel
13:41
all right
13:44
you may not want to use the free email
13:47
services for important information I
13:51
would not use it not no I don’t give out
13:54
orders it’s it’s fundamentally up to you
13:56
it’s your choice it’s your decision I’m
13:58
giving you some tips as a real-world
14:00
computer technician all day every day I
14:03
could probably make ace an itch career
14:10
out of just accounts all day every day
14:13
on a third-party website which I will
14:15
never reference it ever people get
14:20
locked out of Facebook they get locked
14:22
out of their PayPal account they get
14:24
locked out of their a o L account they
14:27
get locked out of yahoo email account
14:29
they get locked out of gmail account
14:31
they get locked out of hotmail account
14:32
they get locked out of their Microsoft
14:35
account they can’t log in to the
14:36
computer because they’re locked out of
14:38
their Microsoft account they can’t
14:41
access their iPad or iPhone or their
14:45
Macintosh because they’re locked out
14:47
because they don’t know their Apple
14:48
identification
14:53
you know what I’m saying
14:55
if you use Yahoo or any other free email
14:59
service as your recovery option you know
15:03
all where you say oh I forgot my
15:04
password okay we’ll send you an email to
15:06
government sucks at yahoo.com and then
15:09
we got a link for you or we got a code
15:11
for you just type in the code or click
15:13
on the link
15:17
well I’ll get it get it there’s a lot of
15:22
shenanigans going on on the Internet I
15:24
could literally just make a living doing
15:25
that all day I choose not to because I
15:28
don’t know what the success rates are if
15:32
basically if you don’t know your
15:34
password you’re pretty much fun and
15:37
especially if you do not know your
15:38
security request answers to your
15:41
security questions or you do not you
15:43
forgot your ID these people forget their
15:45
email ids or they forget the email
15:48
address or they don’t have access to the
15:50
email address or oh my god they don’t
15:53
have access to the same phone anymore
15:55
they changed phone providers or they
15:57
change their phone number all it just
16:00
goes on all day all day every day it’s
16:02
just like oh fuck man no wonder why I’m
16:04
fucking mentally ill
16:08
oh my god I’m over over the overtime
16:10
period shit well no this is overtime now
16:13
that’s right I gotta run I got like I
16:16
usually try to keep my videos down to 15
16:18
minutes
16:18
I still gotta upload this motherfucker
16:20
alright any other tips
16:24
I gave you that gold one I’ll not go
16:25
over that again what was another one
16:28
since I’m a real-world compare
16:29
technician I used to
16:33
refused to answer well I used to refuse
16:35
to work on those types of because I knew
16:37
the success rate was very low
16:40
this website which I’m not no I’m not
16:42
getting details they change the way we
16:44
are compensated and now as long as I try
16:47
to help the person as much as possible
16:48
most times I get paid for it so now it
16:51
is Padilla Cheryl irresponsible for me
16:54
to help people with their login problems
16:57
are you for you know I worked on this
17:00
website for a decade now off and on and
17:03
back in the day when I first started I
17:06
would help people but I quickly learned
17:07
that the success rate is very low
17:11
a lot of times it’s just mental midgets
17:14
or just however but now over the last
17:17
decade there I could be paranoia I don’t
17:21
believe all the stories sometimes I
17:23
wonder if they’re trying to get me to
17:25
help so that they can circumvent
17:27
somebody else’s account I’m that’s
17:30
another reason why I used to never help
17:32
people because I was like how could it
17:34
be and you’ll get these sob stories like
17:36
well my my wife just died and I need to
17:40
get into their bank account and like
17:43
borrow well how do I know you’re you
17:45
know telling the truth I’m not gonna
17:48
know I’m not gonna knowingly help a
17:50
fuckin crook alright but any other tips
17:54
when it comes to
17:58
this this should be a warning because I
18:01
everyday I see people just they can’t
18:05
login and I’m like well done just I
18:10
would learn try to learn how to host
18:13
your own email
18:16
try to host your own email there are you
18:19
can buy paying email services that are
18:23
not connected to the free email service
18:25
providers but I wouldn’t trust those
18:27
either
18:28
you just don’t know anymore nowadays oh
18:30
I mean all day long people are getting
18:33
locked out of Facebook for no reason
18:35
they’re getting locked out of PayPal for
18:38
no reason they’re getting locked out of
18:41
Gmail and Yahoo and hotmail
18:44
and their Microsoft account their Apple
18:46
identification for no reason and I you
18:49
know why I believe them I’m not gonna
18:51
tell you what bank just a last week I
18:55
had a bank account for decades decades
18:59
and they just closed my bank account for
19:03
no reason I was not no no no I was not
19:06
overdrawn III very rarely used that’s my
19:09
suspicion is I very rarely used that
19:12
bank account and I only really used it
19:14
for like one or two transactions one
19:16
there was one specific bill that I had
19:19
set to auto pay and alls I did was be
19:21
money as soon as I received the
19:26
that that payment went through our that
19:28
that that this company was dead
19:33
and then as soon as I received the email
19:35
from that
19:37
was
19:41
I wouldn’t immediately transfer money
19:45
last
19:46
we herewith never had a problem last
19:49
week outside
19:55
all of a sudden
19:56
I noticed that I didn’t get my
20:05
then I
20:14
every website that I thought was
20:15
important
20:20
and I thought
20:23
and I changed
20:25
recovery information where I
20:27
double-checked
20:29
everyone said it was important
20:36
as we covered
20:40
have access to that recovery
20:58
so yeah
21:02
I’ll count that I’ve had
21:13
he’s trying time that one might get
21:15
close to I think I can be wrong I think
21:18
and stationed in this
21:24
notorious for closing
21:30
and all of a sudden I was able to log in
21:32
but it but I I saw this big pop up
21:36
account closed
21:39
and then I saw the last transaction it
21:42
said closeout or whatever I was like
21:44
but now like I said before I
21:47
is that Bank flight before
21:49
a couple of specific you know purposes
21:52
but I was
21:54
don’t close that account anyways so
21:56
actually actually they helped me down
21:59
and I see you know some money per month
22:03
never charged me so that that’s the
22:05
fundamental
22:13
as the recovery scores
22:16
yeah
22:20
all right so that is how you terminate
22:23
your
22:25
and I might make the second
22:27
showing you how
22:31
mostly
22:35
why they don’t even remember their fuck
22:38
or that idea what that shit off
22:40
well here’s a bonus tip on being a
22:43
pillar traffic

23:06
