Yahoo has tripled its initial estimate of the number of email accounts affected by a data breach in 2013. The company announced that all the 3 billion users who had a Yahoo email account at the time were affected and could have their data compromised. Oath, Yahoo’s new parent company, announced Tuesday that it is providing notice to 2 billion additional user accounts that had been affected by a data breach in 2013.

Yahoo-ooo! 

I stopped using FREE email services 8 years ago when my Yahoo account was hacked.  I use a paid service because I get hardly ANY spam and no advertisements.   Security is pretty darn good, too.

How long has it been since anyone here has used yahoo?
That is half sarcasm, but not really :D
hotmail/gmail/yahoo -- you may as well print your emails all on paper & post them on bulletin at your local library.
