Yahoo doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-violets_ will need to dig through the advice provided by Yahoo, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-violets_ can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-violets_'s own words
I need specific instructions for how to add a new email address to my yahoo account, on my iPad. ... I am trying to add an email account, to my existing yahoo account. When I go to my yahoo mail account, inn settings, I click on Manage Accounts. That opens a popup, with “* Add Account”. I click on that and it opens a popup that says to sign into Yahoo Account. **So I put *****@***.com and get another popup with a red X and green circle with a check mark. I click on the green circle, and get a note, that I am logged in. **So I go back to setting and click on Manage Accounts. That opens a popup, with “* Add Account”. I click on that and it opens a popup that says to sign into Yahoo Account. **AAARRRRGGGHHHHH!!! **How in the h*ll am I supposed to add an email address to my yahoo account, if it keeps sending me in the same loop????? **I have looked online, for instructions on how to add a new email address to an existing yahoo account, but it either gives me outdated instructions, or a long narrative, that is hard for this frustrated mind to follow. I am at my wits end!!! Why does it have to be so difficult?**All I want to do is add an email address, that matches my small business name, so I can sign up on Etsy, to sell my homemade products. Is that too much to ask??? :(
My attempts to add an account (email address) put me into a loop that required me to sign into my account and wouldn’t allow me to add the email address.
Give me specific instructions for adding an email address, to my account, in the yahoo app on my iPad.
I have been a member for at least ten or more years.
See my comments in “The Problem”, I list specifically what I did. I looked online for instructions, but couldn’t find anything that matched the settings on the email screen in the Yahoo Mail app on my iPad.
