Hi,

I use Gmail but am wondering if Yahoo is better with security? I've noticed lately getting alerts from Gmail about security issues. Anyone else have problems with Gmail?

I've used gmail for over 15 years with no security issues. I'd be looking into other problems besides the gmail service. Yahoo and hotmail are a joke, imho.

Change your password and unsubscribe from any types of chain mails, etc. Be careful what you open. Use the word filter gmail offers to help with security.

Most of my bunch go with Gmail... I have both but rarely use either. No problems with either that I'm aware of.

Gmail hands down. Yahoo is overrun with spam. I only have a yahoo account for those sites that require an email but you don't want them to have your personal one.

Nothing really that secure if your on the World Wide Web.. Big Brother and little sister is watching & listening... It really all depends on what you say and how you phrase it....... will determine if the Men in Black knock on your door.

I agree with the Yahoo email spam. I do get my share with Gmail but it doesn't show up in my main message box.

I've had a Yahoo email address since forever, along with a few others. Every day, my Yahoo spam folder collects almost 200 spam emails. I just delete them.

I doubt that you have been using gmail for over 15 years...
