reactivate yahoo email address

The Yahoo Mail app on your iPhone or iPad allows you to send and receive emails from friends and family. If you have 2 accounts or you no longer want to use the account that you’re currently logged into on your Yahoo Mail app, you can log out.

Depending on the Yahoo Mail app version you have, it can be hard to log out. There isn’t a logout button on the app’s interface that you normally see on any other email client such as Gmail. On your iPhone, instead of signing out, you only have the option to remove the account. From here, you can log into another account if you need to.

Tap Remove to confirm

6. Tap Remove to confirm. The Yahoo Mail account is removed from your iPhone and logged out the yahoo app. If you go back on the app, you won’t have access to the email account that you deleted in settings.

When you delete the account from your iPhone’s settings, it doesn’t delete your actual email account stored with Yahoo, it only removes the accounts details from your iPhone which means logging you out the Yahoo app. In simple terms, this signs you out of your account.

If you want an alternative to this, you can simply delete and reinstall the Yahoo Mail app and this will require you to log back into your account again
