Late last year, Gmail started showing images by default in a way that Google says doesn’t compromise general security. Now Yahoo has released an update for its Android mail app that does precisely the opposite. Now those pesky images are blocked by default (or is the story here… that they weren’t already?).
The option to toggle this is tucked away in the app settings, so there’s nothing stopping users from going back to living wild and free.
