How do I disable my yahoo key without logging in?

Best Answer:
  1. There are two major steps to turn Yahoo Account Key back into a password. To do this, go to the Yahoo Account security page and click Manage on the left-hand side at the top of the screen under “Yahoo Account Key.” Scroll down until you find a page that says Disable your account key and toggle the button next to any device you want locked or unlocked.

I don’t want anyone to know my password, so I want to disable the password without logging in.

For that, turn on your computer and open a new tab then login https://login.yahoo.com/config/security .

First thing you need to do is change your password if it has been used already then click “Change Password” option as shown in the picture below.Then enter a new password twice and press “Save”. I strongly recommend you not leaving any part of your password empty (See picture below).

But, you still can’t disable your password. Next thing to do is enable the key without password.

For that, click “Manage Account Key” then choose one of the 3 options: Disable my account key and require a password . This option will save your password but disabling your Yahoo Key. You need to re-enter your password every time you login; or Use an alternate sign in method , this option will let you use another sign in method like email address + PIN or using the mobile number + 6-digit code; or Remove both passwords and don’t ask for any of them when I sign in . Your Yahoo key will be disabled permanently and cannot be reactivated anytime.
