It is important to keep your Account Recovery information up-to-date all the time in your Yahoo account. This is because; if you ever face trouble signing into your Yahoo account or your account gets hacked, you will need to have access to one of the Account recovery options associated with your account. Account recovery options mainly include either your phone number/email address or both. If you have not added any Recover Email Address to your Yahoo account, you can add it by following the steps mentioned below.

6.) Under Email addresses window, click on the Add recovery email address option. You will be prompted to enter your email address in the provided field.
