I've noticed recently that yahoo mail is no longer secured. It doesn't show the secured lock key after I access my emails but instead, it shows a circle with exclamation mark inside. I've searched for the reason online and found out that many people are complaining about the same issue since last year but no one seem to have found the solution for that.

The yahoo address bar for inbox, it shows https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1 and for sent, it shows https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/2 and for draft, it shows https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/3

Not sure what these folders are but all are unsecured.

Is it possible to transfer my yahoo mail account to WA where I know I will not ever worry about security?

Thanks,

Mona

You can keep it, next to a gmail address, and work slowly towards the chance, one advantage, you get rid of lots of spam mail

because you are not logged in. Once you log in, they become unsecured.

Transfer - not really, but I would suggest that you change your account from Yahoo. This is a personal preference, but it seems that Yahoo has not kept up with the rest of the internet world. My wife still uses her yahoo, but...
