How does Yahoo Mail keep your browser connection secure?

Whenever you sign in to a Yahoo service, your sign in information is protected by "https" (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure), a communications protocol used for secure communication over computer networks and the internet. Web addresses starting with "https://" use this security feature. By using a connection with https, you can be more confident that your account is safer from hackers, and your private information is less likely to fall into someone else’s hands.
