Yahoo chief Marissa Mayer on Monday said the Internet firm will begin encrypting data to protect users from online snooping.
Yahoo is having a busy year trying to recapture its faded prestige as a technology giant, but its new acquisitions, hiring and the much-hyped revamping of its website aren't giving the company the comeback picture it needs.
Yahoo?s Marissa Mayer has done much to shake up the company since becoming its CEO in 2012. She?s redesigned its homepage, introduced new ad products, acquired Tumblr, banned working from home and revitalized the brand. 12,000 resumes now flood into Yahoo each week, according to Mayer, more than five times what the company saw before she took over.
Facebook, Google and Yahoo on Monday filed petitions with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court as part of a renewed collective effort to provide more information to their users about government data requests.
Yahoo chief Marissa Mayer said she feared winding up in prison for treason if she refused to comply with US spy demands for data.
