In other words, emails related to your banking and financial transactions seem to be in the crosshairs of the ad Oath targeting engine. To be clear, Yahoo`s previous privacy policy had previously stated that Yahoo „analyzes and stores all communication content, including email content,“ so the company has previously revealed that it is able to scan the contents of your emails, at least. (AOL`s old privacy policy says nothing like that.) What`s remarkable is that Google scanned its Gmail messages for better advertising alignment, although it stopped the practice in June 2017. Verizon had bought both AOL and Yahoo and made it a wholly owned subsidiary, Oath. This was Oath`s new privacy policy, which many reacted to last month, particularly in the context of Cambridge Analytica. However, if you have used Yahoo Mail or Gmail or others, the content of what you are writing has already been placed under surveillance. Analyze your content and other information (including emails, instant messages, photo messages, attachments and other communications). You can check and control certain types of information related to your Verizon Media account using privacy controls. In April 2019, another version of the message began hitting the mail. The new version incorrectly states that your „AOL email address will no longer work after April 20, 2019, unless you switch to AOL OATH.“ Again, the button in the email opens a fraudulent website that was designed to steal your account login data. Oath`s privacy policy for Verizon and AOL emails allows users to opt out of targeted ads.

You`ll notice that none of them has as much storage space as Yahoo Mails has 1 TB free disk space. (Gmail, on the other hand, has a 15GB limit, unless you pay for more.) Certainly, Yahoo`s huge storage space is of course used to store consumer emails, so you may not need as much space after reducing retail spam. As Oath told WSJ today, email can be an expensive system, and Yahoo`s compromise is all that space in exchange for your data. Oath also draws attention to federal restrictions on what banks can send you through your account with unsecured means such as emails or texts or instant messages. Do not get rid of concerns about the information that is transferred, but the sensitive items are not sent in this way Take a deep breath. I am not a lawyer, but I have hired contracts, user agreements, security, data protection and data practices of large companies for many years. I read the same documents that were used as the basis for the story, and I think the conclusions are largely koje. „Please note that while our services will remain available under current conditions, you will ultimately need to approve the new terms of use and privacy policy in order to continue using our services,“ said an email from Oath to Yahoo Mail users last week.
