Yahoo Pulls The Plug On Snoopers

Posted: Updated:

Yahoo adds more layers of security to protect it users.

The web giant announced it is encrypting all emails, search requests and other information transmitted through its data centers. The idea is to make the information indecipherable to the government and people trying to snoop.

Google and Microsoft have taken similar measures since it became known that the government had looked at millions of web surfers' personal information in what it claimed were anti-terrorism efforts.
