    it is something about yahoo join oath and allow them to use all our data, the choices are allow them or do it later and the choice to do it later doesn't apply!
    Does somebody on the forum still using yahoo email and having the same thing? do you think will be ok? it is true yahoo join oath and we have not choice apart from allow them to use our data?

    We finally got that same message. I was very suspicious but my tech-saavy husband confirmed that it is legit. It's safe to click on.

    The privacy issues are something else - if you google "Yahoo Oath" you can read about people's concerns over data collection/loss of privacy. Personally I'm not overly concerned as I'm not posting anything of interest/value, but everyone should find their own comfort level. I've got friends who won't even use Skype, they are are so privacy-sensitive.

    Oath has bought Yahoo it seems, and they are now allowing them to scan your e-mails for advertising targeting. In this way they are now the same as gmail I think, although I am not sure which service is more intrusive.

    If you want real privacy on your e-mail you should use your own domain and server. Remember Yahoo e-mail is free, and as the saying goes "If you are not paying for it, then you are the product".
