How to Change the Location in Your Yahoo! Profile


Change the location in your Yahoo profile if you go on a vacation or move to another city. You can change the location as many times as you want, so you can change it again when you return. People in your area can find you easier if you use the correct location settings. You can manage the location preferences for the entire Yahoo account from the same place: the Yahoo Account Information page.

Changing the Location

  • Open your Yahoo profile, click the gear icon and select "Account Info" to open the Account Information page. Alternatively, open the Account Information page directly. You must be logged into your Yahoo account to access the page. Click the "View/Update your saved locations" link in the Current Location section and then select "Detect my location." If the browser prompts you to confirm that you want to share your location with Yahoo, click "Share" or "Accept." To add a favorite location, type it into the "Favorites" field, select the correct location from the list of suggestions and click "Add." The location is updated immediately.

    To change the location displayed on your profile, open the profile and click inside the location box below your name. Type the new location and press "Enter." You can leave the Location field blank.
