Publishers can finally change their YPN password

I was one of those publishers granted my YPN password, and it took me months to memorize the darn thing, primarily because I was not able to change the password to anything else. There had been a workaround (involving the "password forgotten" feature) although by the time I learned about it, I had already (finally!) memorized it.

To change your password, you can login to your account, click "Account information" then "change password" in the options underneath.

The newly designed help files still do not include this new information about changing your password. However, while looking for it, I did notice something about the new design I can't quite believe. There is no way to search the help files for information! I wanted to quickly find the FAQ/support search box and type in "password" and hit search. But considering Yahoo is a search engine, I was pretty surprised to find this oversight. Hopefully this is something they plan to add in the future, since it is a feature that publishers would find handy, and would help save some of the support team's time if publishers can do a quick search on their issue rather than having to click around and hunt the information down.

And if you missed the update on all the changes, I interviewed Cody Simms, the YPN product manager for the update on Click This, you can download it here.

But back on the password, if you had a pressing desire to change your password, you can do it now :)

That's quite an achievement, right ;-)

Wow. There was no way to change your password? I can't believe that many publishers would sign up for a service and provide their financial information to a company that won't even allow you to change your own password. Sounds mighty sketchy to me and very irresponsible on Yahoo's part.
