Do you have Yahoo email? Or do you use any of Yahoo services? If your answer is „yes“, then the following information will be useful for you.

What are the available options if Yahoo account owner is not longer around?

In these cases, Yahoo has a process in place to request that your loved one’s account be closed, billing and premium services suspended, and any contents deleted for privacy.
Yahoo allows accounts to be closed and billing suspended with a user id, a death certificate, and proof of executorship.

To request closing account, you need to provide specific documents, which are:
• A letter containing your request and stating the Yahoo ID of the deceased
• A copy of a document appointing the requesting party as the personal representative or executor of the estate of the deceased
• A copy of the death certificate of the Yahoo account holder

You need to be aware that Yahoo cannot provide passwords or allow access to the deceased’s account!
