使用雅虎邮件?你应该尽快打开这个隐私选项

Filed Under: Featured, Privacy, Web Browsers

Yahoo它采取了雅虎可笑的很长一段时间,但它终于推出了一个选项,这将有助于保护用户的隐私,当访问基于Web的电子邮件 - HTTPS。

雅虎邮箱已经落后于竞争对手,如Hotmail的(在更名Outlook.com的过程中)和Gmail允许用户通过HTTPS来访问他们的电子邮件。

如果你没有全会议HTTPS打开你的webmail,在您的无线网络上的任何人都可以阅读任何写你的电子邮件和接收使用的工具像FireSheep ,他们从雅虎到您的浏览器传输。

这是因为,没有HTTPS,他们将作为未加密的文本。

如果您使用雅虎邮件,我的建议是尽快使这个隐私选项。这里是你如何做到这一点:

雅虎邮件选项“屏幕

  • 选择“选项/邮件选项”,在您的主雅虎邮箱屏幕
  • 选择“常规”
  • 选择“打开SSL”。

HTTPS启用Yahoo Mail帐户

宾果!你就大功告成了。

这是不幸的,雅虎已经取得了HTTPS / SSL设置默认为禁用,这意味着用户需要将其打开,如果他们想更好的私密性。希望的时候,雅虎将决定启用该选项默认情况下 - 因为它是与Gmail,Hotmail和Outlook.com的。

现在,太多的希望,AOL可能成为下一个实施其电子邮件服务的HTTPS选项吗?
