Shares & Saves

Yahoo! uses confirmation codes to verify a variety of actions taken by Yahoo! customers. A confirmation code can validate an email address or mobile communications number when you register for or set up a Yahoo! service. In addition, it can prove to Yahoo! that you want to change or end a service. Typically, Yahoo! sends confirmation codes electronically to the email address or phone number that you've designated as your primary contact point or as the contact point for the service involved.

  • Access the Yahoo! or non-Yahoo! email that you provided to Yahoo! as the point of contact for the situation and look for an email from Yahoo!

  • Check the "Spam" or "Trash" folders in your email if can't find the email from Yahoo! in the Inbox. Sometimes non-Yahoo! systems incorrectly mark Yahoo! communications as spam; or you might have accidentally deleted the email.

  • Open the text messages area on your mobile phone or other communications device and locate the text message from Yahoo! if you're in the process of setting up a Yahoo! service for your mobile device or requested that Yahoo! send a confirmation code via text message.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you cannot find your confirmation code, try re-registering for the service, or contact Yahoo! Customer Care.
