Yahoo Mail to disable automatic mail forwarding feature

Verizon will disable the automatically forward feature that the incoming emails from your Yahoo Mail to another email address. This feature will be deactivated on January 1, 2021, only for those who have the free version of Yahoo Mail.

However, earlier this month, Verizon had announced the decision to disable the automatic forwarding feature and now informing its subscribers through email, ZDNet reports.

On the other hand, it seems like the move aims to encourage users to get the paid version of Yahoo Mail, which will help keep accounts secure.

On its FAQ page, the company wrote, “We regularly evaluate our products and services against current security standards and have decided to remove this feature to help ensure free Yahoo Mail accounts remain secure.”

ZDNet figures out hackers do abuse the automatic forwarding feature to keep a copy of the targeted user’s email. The quality also helps manage all incoming mails at a single place.

Yahoo Mail Pro is an ad-free version of the email service. However, the paid version load faster on desktop browsers, and emails don’t get purged due to long periods of inactivity.

The Pro version is available for $3.49 (₹257 approximately) a month and to get an annual subscription plan that is cost $34.99 (₹2,586 around).
