Edward Snowden, former agent of the US special services, claimed that the Yahoo users should close their accounts as soon as possible. Snowden wrote on his Twitter about the service: 'Use @Yahoo? They secretly scanned everything you ever wrote, far beyond what law requires. Close your account today.
It was reported before that the Yahoo company scanned letters of its users due to a special program as it had been required by special services. Given revelation, Chief Information Security Officer Alex Stamos has resigned. Snowden also wondered how the US presidential candidates would react to information on spying. According to Reuters, the Yahoo has been secretly spying on mailbox of its users at request of the US special services.
