Privacy Tools on Yahoo

  • Posted by Yahoo Safety

Customise your Yahoo account so that you can control the information that you want to share, with the privacy tools found on these pages:

My account: On this page, you can edit information that you gave when you registered with Yahoo. The page has contact and email information as well as options to manage the third parties that you have authorised to access your account. You can also create a sign-in seal to help make your account more secure as well as find other tools.

Opt out of ad matching: Whenever possible, Yahoo ensures that the advertisements that you see are personalised to your interests, based on your activity on Yahoo and your expressed preferences. On this page, you can opt out of this customisation but, if you do, the ads you see may not be as relevant or as useful.

Marketing preferences: On this page, you can manage the types of messages that we send you and how we send them. You can select categories of interest for special marketing communications, offers from third parties and subscriptions to Yahoo newsletters.
