Privacy concerns

  • Contact cards are private - The info you see is pulled from your address book and any linked account. We don't share your details with others.
  • Test it yourself - Send an email to an account you've never messaged before. You'll be able to confirm none of your private info was shared with this new account.
  • Where did the info come from? Yahoo syncs with LinkedIn and your mobile device, but only if you've given us permission. In the past we would also sync with Facebook, and while we don't do so anymore, some old info may still be visible.
  • Still concerned about privacy? Yahoo takes privacy concerns very serious. We never share your personal info with anyone without your consent; your contacts will only receive info you agree to provide. For more info, check out our Privacy Center.
