Having an email account is almost as important as have a cell phone in today’s world. However, many are reluctant to take the first step, as they fear it may be too difficult or afraid of making a mistake.
Today’s email is much simpler to set up. It’s not like you have to be a programmer. Unlike the old UNIX, mail systems. Setting up email online today couldn’t be easier to do.
Today we’ll show you just how easy it is by setting one up for you on the popular Yahoo platform.
When you have finished seeing what we have to show you. You’ll be able to do the same with ease.
So let’s get started with the where to go.
The first thing to do is to get there
This is simply done by pointing your browser here. https://overview.mail.yahoo.com/
The graphics are nice and pleasing and all you do is choose a username.
Everything is laid out and directs you to this one simple act.
Just type you username in
Then press the GO radio button to the right of your name.
Next, just add a few details
Passwords are very important and you should take the time to choose a unique one. Preferably with a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols.
Yes, this may be hard to remember. But, this is where most people mess up as they use common information. But this, hackers know all too well. They have an entire database of these common elements that they use to break into you account. So don’t make it easy for them.
Fill in what you want and save the rest for later
First name is mandatory along with a password.
I leave out personal information. In this, case my birthday and phone number. After filling it in and click the Create Account button at the bottom of the screen.
Unfortunately, they no longer permit you to be anonymous
You must enter a phone # and, at least, a birthday. NSA perhaps wants to check in with you? 🙂
BTW, I lied…
The obligatory Human Check
This is where most people have the most trouble as this check is made to stop automated Bots from setting up bogus accounts. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible for people to do it as well.
After a few more go-rounds with this, it was finally accepted.
They really want to get hold of you for some reason
I personally don’t want text messages on my dime cluttering up my in box thank you.
After you do enter, your mobile number they approve you and you have your account all setup and are happy.
You can now send and receive emails and many other functions that the new Yahoo mail provides.
