How do you delete a yahoo e-mail account?

I don't use this account much at all and my mom just sent me a message to let me know that someone hacked into my e-mail because she is receiving some e-mails from me with x rated material in them. So, how do I go about deleting a yahoo e-mail account?

  • Log in to your yahoo account and click on help. When the help window pulls up you should see a search bar and type the words: Delete Account.

    You'll see a question - How Do I Close My Yahoo! Account, click that link and it'll tell you how to close it. You'll need to click on the Account Termination page, put in your password and the captcha code to close it out.....pretty easy, I've had to do it with a few yahoo accounts that someone hacked into.

  • as far as i know, you cant, you can ditch it and delete everyone off of your contact list or you can change your password.

  • as far as I know you just shouldnt log into it for around 3 months and it gets canceled. Other that you could look for a help option when you log on and see if there is an answer there.

  • Thank you, Holtswife24, I did what you said and was able to delete my account. Okmommy08, I thought that as well but I haven't logged into that account in 4-5 months and it was still active.
