Yahoo email users will soon be able to encrypt the emails they send out by simply clicking on a button. In addition to this, users will be able to effectively forget their email passwords and request an on-demand password (a verification code) each time they want to access their account.
Yahoo CISO Alex Stamos introduced the end-to-end email encryption plugin at the SXSW festival this Sunday, and shared that they have been working on it with Google. In fact, the two companies' email encryption solutions will be compatible, allowing users of both services to send each other encrypted emails.
The plugin is a fork of Google's End-to-End Chrome extension, which uses the OpenPGP standard for key generation, encryption, decryption, digital signature, and signature verification, and whose source code has been made open for review by Google in June 2014.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
