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.
