    Whether you like it or not,y'all give out your data to other things like Facebook & social media sites.
    Google Chrome collects and sends all your browser data back to them,there is no user privacy there yet everyone happy to use that.Even for free antivirus and free vpn you're giving your data because you're the product.So why does it matter what Yahoo does!

    Just because the world is demanding everyone to have an email address now, is no reason for companies to steal our personal information. Where is our freedom of privacy, when you force all of us to freely hand over our personal lives to your prying eyes? It is a serious violation of trust and personal space, especially when you cannot stop hackers from stealing our data, and you want us to share more. It is illegal for people to tamper with your personal mail, but nothing protects us from people tampering with our digital mail. Yahoo is loosing the trust of its users, and has failed to protect its users. I personally would be willing to pay for an email service that protected my privacy and does not collect my data. Whenever I find such a service, I will happily leave Yahoo and never look back. Give me Freedom of privacy, or the death of Yahoo....

    no way will we give permission for yet another party to steal our personal info and sell it to third parties. dont you people watch the news?? wtf is WRONG with you?? I do NOT give permission for you to access my data. find some other way to make a buck. this method has been shot dead by cambridge analytica et al and we will NOT permit you or anybody else to shove us down that pipeline ever again. get over yourselves and get a new business model.
