Yahoo still scans your emails to sell data to advertisers

According to a new Wall Street Journal report, Yahoo Mail is still scanning your emails.  The company is using your data to sell to advertisers.

To opt out you’ll have to head over to the Ad Interest Manager page and select ‘opt out‘ under ‘advertising choices. Then you have to click over to on Yahoo to opt out of Yahoo’s own properties.

The Wall Street Journal cites Oath employees (current and former) as well as people who have attended the company’s presentations as saying Yahoo has been scanning email contents for more than a decade. Now, having expanded its scanning operations, the company is looking for ways to monetize the data it extracts in this way.

Experts recommend using email services like Thexyz or ProtonMail if you don’t want your contents scanned.
