Let’s face it. Having a Yahoo email address these days is seen as a stigma and a liability. Aside from being “old”, recent revelations have called into question the security of having a Yahoo account. As such, it won’t be surprising if Yahoo experienced a mass exodus of users trying to protect themselves from hacks and massive leaks. Attempting to keep its email app from descending into obsolescence, Yahoo is now removing the requirement to have a Yahoo account to use its Yahoo Mail app, potentially turning it into something akin to a third-party email client like K-9, Boxer, CloudMagic and the like.
