Yahoo Messenger is an instant messaging program available for free from Yahoo. Using a Yahoo email account, users can use instant messages, texts and voice and video chat with other Yahoo Messenger users for free. Users can even call cell phones and home phones for a low price.However, unlike other instant messengers, Yahoo does not tell you when the last time your account was logged into. In order to find out this information you have to go into the registry.
Go to the \"Start Search\" field in the Start menu and type in “regedit.” Click on \"regedit\" under \"Programs.\"
Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Yahoo\pager\profiles and look for your Yahoo name.
Look for “LastLoginTime” under your name. A value will be there that looks like this: Year, Month, Day, Hours, Minutes.
Tips & Warnings
