    Yahoo messenger is one of the most popular internet chat client. Since it also work with MSN it can be the only messaging chat that you ever need. If you are a parent use a control tool to monitor your children online activities.

    I have used Yahoo Messenger since a ling time, but till i do not have any time of complain as far as authenticity & secrecy is concerned. So i can conclude the fact that Yahoo will provide you best messaging & chat opportunities than any other search engine.

    Its just only a chat plate form, use it only for chatting not to other purposes, well you can't do so actually.
    On shared computers avoid to use it or of course on cyber cafes. I think it is safe only on your personal PC. what you think?

    Using YM as added value service is great.

    Yes there is still a posibility someone abuse it. 3 Years ago I still remember Acai Berry virus, that infecting and keep buzzing my YM to click that link. The sentences even look natural.

    Now the latest irritation, there is still the same virus but different message. Told me to check the pictures and he give me the link that I will not click.

    That's why depend for your use. If it is for personal use, I could say it is very save and handy

    As for business it is still ok since it have archiving version and it's the easy way to communicate with your customer without installin asp chat engine.

    Wish you the best and good luck.

    PS: My review... YM is safe if you know how to use it. :D

    I personally know for number of years(since2002), Yahoo Messenger is used by several business organizations as their online support system. The tool could save message history with time and date (saved locally in your computer).

    Giving security to the user account information and not sending any critical information, it is safe to use.

    Yes, it is safe. But it really depends how you use. If you have virus on your computer, you can get all your information to the hacker easily. So Make your computer safe before thinking of yahoo messenger safe.

    Here're some basic safety tips for instant messaging :
    -Choose an non identifiable, non gender specific screen name (and keep it clean!)
    -Never give out any personal information whilst using IM. That means your real name, telephone or cell phone number, mailing address, passwords, banking details etc.
    -Never accept files or downloads from people you don't know or from people you do know, if you weren‘t expecting them. This includes URLs.
    -Never arrange to meet someone offline that you only know through IM conversations.
    -Make sure you know how to save copies of your IM conversations.
    -Remember your Netiquette and be nice! Don’t send mean IM messages or incite others to do so.

    It's still depend on the user. Yahoo Messenger is safe if you know how to keep your details private. Learn not to share your password to anyone. My cousin had a bad experience about this issue so dare not to try it too.

    As long as you are not protected, you are not safe.
