Hack Yahoo Messenger to Chat with Multiple Names Simultaneously

Yahoo Messenger is one of the highly popular and most widely used instant messaging service in the world offering a wide variety of features to it’s users, all for free. This has made it the right choice for all those who are waiting to chat and communicate with their far away friends and relatives.
However, while some people use Yahoo Messenger only to chat with their friends and known ones, many others use it to have fun by joining the chat rooms and chatting with the strangers. If you’re a similar person who would like to have fun during the chat, this post if for you!

How about chatting with your friend with two or more different names at a time? Well, do not think that this is impossible! This can easily be done with a simple workaround which enables you to chat with as many different names as you can with the same or different people.
For example, you may chat with Person-A using one name and withPerson-B using the other. You can also chat with the same person using different names or any other combination. All of this goes really unnoticed by the user on the other side, while you are sure to have some real fun.
Here is a step-by-step procedure to implement this hack:
  1. Sign in to your Yahoo Messenger. From the top, click on Messenger-> My Account Info. You will be taken to a web page where you need to log in to your account.
  2. Now, you should be on the Profile Settings page. Scroll down to see the option Account Settings as shown below. From there, click on the link which says: “Manage your Yahoo! aliases”.

 3. From the Aliases page, click on: “Add an alias”. You can create as many aliases you want. Choose unique names for your alias and once you’re done, click on “close”.

 4. You need to sign out of Yahoo Messenger and sign in again to see the changes. Once you have done this, double-click on any name from your contact list or chat room to open a new chat window. You should now see a list of your aliases appearing in the chat window to choose from.

  1. To chat with multiple names with a single person, just follow the steps below:
    • Double-click on the name of the person in the chat room or contact list.
    • Select any name from your “alias” list and ping the user with that name. Immediately close the chat window before you get a reply from that person.
    • Again double-click on the same person’s name and ping him/her with another name from your “alias” list. This time do not close the window.
    • Just wait a few seconds! When the person replies to both your pings, you will have two tabs in the same chat window from where you can chat with the same person using two different names.
Note:- Before you try this hack, make sure that you have not set any display image for your profile. If not, there are chances of other person identifying your prank.
To disable the display image, just click on Messenger -> My Display Image from the top menu of your YM window and set the option to “Don’t share a display image”.
