Yahoo Email Security Fix

yahoo-email-sslA lot of my friends Yahoo email addresses have been hacked over the last year and part of the reason may be that they couldn’t use a secure connection at many public sites.

Yahoo email has finally added HTTPS support (SSL), but it is not turned on by default.  This should fix a lot of security problems.

Here’s how to turn it on.

  • Signin to your regular Yahoo email account.
  • Click on the Gears icon and choose Mail Options
  • Under the General area scroll down to the bottom and click on the “Turn on SSL.”
  • Click on SAVE.
  • It should reload and show https up at the top of your URL.
