Yahoo is excited to announce that their email is going to be on a secure https URL… four years after Gmail did it.
Beginning Jan. 8, Yahoo will enable encryption by default for users logging into its Web-based mail service, the company has told The Washington Post.
“Yahoo takes the security of our users very seriously,” the company said in an e-mailed statement. Yahoo began offering users the option to use the SSL encryption standard earlier this year. The option “encrypts your mail as it moves between your browser and Yahoo’s servers,” according to the company.
