Yahoo Mail for Android now Support Outlook and AOL accounts

Before now, Yahoo only supports Gmail account as its third party mailing account you can add to its app; the popular web-based email service has yet included two other third parties mailing service that you can add to its app, of which they are Outlook and AOL.

Yahoo may not be the best when it comes to security, but still, there are quite a number of people who still uses Yahoo for their business. Yahoo bringing the support to add Outlook and AOL account to its app, just like the existing Gmail is a welcome development for the users of Yahoo.

If you recall, Verizon put forward interest in acquiring Yahoo last year for $4.83 billion. Those arrangements to buy Yahoo are still on, even though the two massive hacks last year may have come close to derailing those plans, ultimately resulting in a price-cut (fun fact, at one billion active users, and a price-cut of $350 million, user security was apparently valued at 35 cents a head). Hopefully under Verizon the company might be able to step things up when it comes to security.

Whether the continued use of Yahoo Mail by consumers is a result of blissful ignorance or a lack of concern remains unknown, but perhaps the inclusion of AOL mail in the update provides some illumination. Either way, if I can I'd like to encourage any users of the service interested in their privacy or security to consider any of its more secure competitors.
