Use multiple Yahoo Messenger accounts at the same time!

Yahoo Messenger Multiple Accounts

For people who manage multiple accounts at the same time (yes I mean you – the one with a separate account for your workstuff, family stuff and naughty stuff), the time has come for you to use ALL your accounts at the same time!

What do I mean?

  • You don’t have to keep logging on and off anymore
  • You don’t have to use a Yahoo Messenger substitute like GAIM* that doesn’t let you use your avatars, audibles, backgrounds,  nor the buzz functionality
  • You don’t have to stoop down to oh-so-slow java programs online as YM alternates – like meebo*

Simple – no plugins to install (some of those could come with viruses), no hard to install equipment, hardware or software! And did I mention that there is a step-by-step video you can reference below?

Behold the simplest method that you can use to enable you to log-in simultaneously with your multiple yahoo accounts! See the video I have attached or follow the simple hack that needs less than 10 steps.

  1. Click on Start Menu
  2. Click Run
  3. Type “regedit” without the quotes, press Enter
  4. Navigate to and expand the following in the said order: HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Yahoo, pager, Test
  5. Right-click on Test and create a new DWORD value (32 bit).
  6. Rename that value as “Plural” without the quotes.
  7. Set the value of “Plural” to 1.

Of course, there is a downside to all of this:

  • Meebo still covers your tracks better than YM (that plus meebo is easier to get away with for you unlucky grunts who are not allowed to install YMs in the office)
  • GAIM will still have the better interface because of its tabbed nature.
  • We never know if Yahoo will support this hack come version 9 for YM.

But if you are a home user, you have 2-3 accounts, you have the real estate on your desktop (a.k.a. 21 inch monitors and above), and/or feel like getting those nutty audibles, avatars, smileys, emoticons, emvironments, webcam, voice chat, conference and all – then stick to whatever floats your boat.*

    i try this and its reall work thank u so much now i can use my more then 10 id of yahoo at same time thank u so muchh ok

  2. Ed Says:

    It works, but after couple hours of running 2 ID at the same time, either 1 account was disconnected by itself and I have to sign on again. Is that normal or there is a fix to that. Thx.

  3. Benj Arriola Says:

    Hmmm, maybe Yahoo knows what’s going on. But please remember this is a hack and Yahoo was never intended to be used this way. But then again…

    Even with one account running, I sometimes experience getting disconnected and I need to reconnect after a few hours. Usually it is online traffic related.

    works fine in BETA

  5. miko Says:

    the other day when i open my messenger there was a message coming from my other accnt , but for sure i didnt send it .. i think ive been hackked how can i prevent this ?

  6. ariel Says:

    thank you for the multiple yahoo accounts… i was amazed with it… i hope you can teach me some of basic skills in hacking…

  7. Arlyn Sanchez Says:

    Hi.. just want to know if its possible to open a single ym account/ID on two different computers? for example, i want to open my arlyn08 ym in my computer at home then i will open that same ym id (arlyn08) in my office so that i can receive messages in the office and my twin sister can receive messages also at home – at the same time. if its possible pls let us know.. thanks so much.

  8. Benj Arriola Says:

    Hi Arlyn, All your comments were received but this is moderated to avoid spammers so all the repeat comments were deleted. But to answer your question, it is not possible. The once another YM account logs in, the first one originally logged in gets logged out.

    If you use a software that by default reconnects if disconnected like Trillian. If you leave it logged it a work and you go home and login at home, your two Trillians will be in an endless battle of connecting and disconnecting in both locations.

    This whole thing is a hack and allows others into your yahoo and it gives the hacker access to your messenger so DONT USE THIS HACK ITS B******T!
