It’s no question that Yahoo is one of the biggest search engines of our times. Better yet, Yahoo has expanded beyond the realm of an engine and ventured into news, video, maps, and much more. With the largest database in the world, Yahoo has invested billions of dollars into analyzing the online behavior of its millions of users. 


Yahoo focuses on building great relationships with partners such as Verizon and At&T but they all have worked with content providers for music, movies, finance, gaming, and sports. While Yahoo hasn’t ever regained its footing after trailblazing before Facebook and Google, the turnaround within the company has been quite successful. 


Creating and deleting accounts on Yahoo are extremely easy. Creating an account allows you to access some of the interesting tools that Yahoo offers. 


For whatever reason, you may need to delete your account. In a few simple steps, you can simply delete your account and either create a new account or stop using the platform altogether.
