You read the user manual where it explains how it's done. Weird they would have a manual that comes built right in and you haven't read it before using it eh? And if this is a How do I set a new password on yahoo mail then you'll have to go to yahoo and ask.

You won't find it in the guide and it looks like you can't do it from the kf mail app. Assuming the hacker has not changed your pw, sign into yahoo on the web and change your pw. If the hacker changed it you will have to contact yahoo.

Jacquelyn, use the browser to go to

When you click on mail and it asks you to sign in, click on "forgot password", and Yahoo will reset your password with a temproary password. Use that and then choose a new password. You will need to enter it and then confirm it.

Choose a password with 6 or more characters. Make it stronger by mixing upper case letters, lower case letters and numerals. Write down your new password and keep it in a safe place.

Are you asking about resetting the password on your Yahoo account itself, or just updating the password in the email app. on the Fire so that it can access your Yahoo mail?

To update the account info. on the Fire, open the email app. and tap the Menu icon on the bottom of the screen.
