Yahoo Mail app gets a major update; password no longer required, third party accounts supported

Yahoo announced yesterday a major update to the Yahoo Mail app. Included is a new feature called “Yahoo Account Key,” which allows you to sign into the app without using a password. Instead, the app will send a notification to the smartphone that is associated with the account. The message asks the user to either accept or decline the request to login. The former will obviously open the Yahoo mail app, while the latter will keep the app closed.

Dylan Casey, Vice President of Product Management for Yahoo, said that the Account Key could be expanded to include fingerprint scanning or face …

Facebook Inc Hires Yahoo! Alex Stamos As Chief Security Officer

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has hired Alex Stamos as its new chief security officer, according to a Facebook post from Wednesday. Since last year, Mr. Stamos has served as chief information security officer at Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO). The need to fill the vacancy for security personnel at Facebook arose after ride-sharing startup Uber poached its security executive, Joe Sullivan, in April. In the Facebook post, Mr. Stamos explained the reason for joining the social media titan. He wants to focus on building secure products to help provide opportunities for educational, economical, and personal purposes, to underprivileged people around the world; especially those in developing countries. He wrote: “There is no company in the world that is better positioned to tackle the challenges faced not only by today’s Internet users but for the remaining [two-thirds] of humanity we have yet to connect.” It is somewhat clear that his decision to switch employers was neither due to being mistreated at Yahoo nor because his previous employer went against his actions related to cyber security. The new chief security executive does not only wish to tighten up privacy and security measures, but also wants to work toward providing opportunities to the under-served areas of […]

Yahoo ‘On-Demand’ Password System: What Happens When You Lose Your Smartphone?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Yahoo has introduced quite an ingenious way to help all those who are constantly forgetting their passwords. The company has just announced a new ‘on-demand’ phone-incorporated password service at the SXSW festival that, almost entirely, eliminates the need to remember passwords. The new Yahoo announcement comes in the wake of several online hacking stories that we come across every day. Online security is something still of an uncharted territory for most of us, even if we are all over the web for one reason or the other. While uploading stuff on the web seems fun, there’s lot more than meets the eye. Breach of online property is quite the grave thing to happen in this age. We are more prone to all things “social” (mostly online) these days with Facebook and Twitter helping us share stuff faster than you can blink. However, problems occur when stuff like the iCloud hack happens and gives rise to the massively downloaded personal explicit content like the ‘Fappening.’ Companies such as Yahoo are aware of all these online threats looming so ominously. But unlike others, Yahoo is taking, it’s safe to say, a kind of unorthodox approach to the entire safety thing. The idea […]
