How to Enable SSL in Yahoo Mail

Though the internet is one of the most useful things to have at your disposal at all times, but then it exposes you to a lot of privacy and theft related issues. When talking about yahoo it has this major security flaw where it did not encrypt any of your email sessions. But in 2012-13, yahoo came up with the DIY SSL where the user can himself go to the settings and turn on the SSL feature on their own.

In order to enable the SSL feature in yahoo, you must follow below mentioned steps:

  • Login to your yahoo mail account using your yahoo mail username and password.
  • In your yahoo mail account, click on the gear icon.
  • In the drop down bar click on “Mail Options”.
  • From here go to the “General tab” > “Advanced Settings”.
  • Turn on the SSL feature by checking the box next to “Turn on SSL”.
  • Click on the “Save” button to save changes.
