# Last Updated On: July 7, 2016 #

To make users’ privacy and their email experience intact, Yahoo is set to announce end-to-end encryption for the emails. It’ll be a big boost to their privacy protection.

The encryption will add more to the security and safety features for Yahoo email service. The encryption feature is designed in a way so that even a non-technical people can use it. Just an initial setup and encryption is ready to use.

Yahoo is currently testing the beta version of the encryption software and already up for developers. It will be rolled out to the end users in the coming months.

Alex Stamos, Yahoo’s chief information security officer, told AFP:

Our goal is to have this available by the end of the year. Anybody who has the ability to write an email should have no problem using our email encryption.

Privacy experts endorse encryption software as a valuable tool to protect against snooping. Yahoo has already started collaborating with Google and its Gmail service on the encryption to enable Yahoo and Gmail users to send encrypted messages to each other with a single click.
