Yahoo! Shutting down Yahoo! Groups

Yahoo! Groups, a platform created by Yahoo 18 years ago from today, is going to be shut down by Yahoo! on January 31st of 2020. Yahoo! group will officially shut down right after the holiday seasons exactly 18 years after the date it was officially launched worldwide on the internet. Not only that, Yahoo is shutting down Yahoo Groups, delete all the contents that were previously saved and updated by the users in their yahoo group for the last 18 years. Yahoo! had officially announced this news in the first week of this October. And from October 21st, users were not able to add anything to their Yahoo! Group too. 

Yahoo! Groups was launched by Yahoo back on January 30th, 2001. Its motive was to provide users of yahoo with a platform where they can create personal/private groups or join any public groups that they are interested in. People can share their share knowledge as well as gain information from the Yahoo! Group. The users were allowed to share images, videos, files, links, etc. to their group of choice.

Why is Yahoo! Shutting Down Yahoo Groups?

Yahoo! is trying to bring a revolution by shutting down Yahoo Groups and making a new one. The new group is said to be more secure and at the same time, harder to join. Yahoo stated that they would delete every available content in the Yahoo Groups, materials being added up for 18 years, will be gone by 31st Jan 2020. All the public groups present will be either restricted or will be private. Your chances of finding these public groups are pretty thin, and however, if you’re able to find it, you won’t be able to join in on your own unless you get an invitation. You still can interact with your group, but you’ll have to get registered by the group administrator. The public groups which are said to be made private have added benefits of security and prevent a further security breach. However, the users can still use their contents and exchange the contents through email.

Alternatives to Yahoo Groups

However, the shutting down Yahoo Groups is not the end of the world, many other service providers provide you with similar services and even better when it comes to some services. Such services are:

Google Groups

Google group is a forum and like any other forums. You can create your group and then add people or invite users to your group. Users can set up Polls, calendar dates, events, discussion threads, etc. it is as good as the Yahoo! Group if not better. And Goggle groups can also be easily linked with Google.io in case you’d like to switch platforms.

Discord

Discord is chiefly used as a communication media by gamers from all over the world and built to focus more on gamers. You will be able to customize any type of private chat server, and you are also able to choose between voice and text for the basis of communications. The best part about discord is, it supports all the popular operating systems (Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, mac and also in the internet web.)  

Slack

Slack allows its users to create private chat rooms and groups, but unlike others, slack provides you with high customization and management tools, like adding up admins and moderators in your group. And is mostly used by business professionals for their works and to collaborate with other users.

Facebook

Facebook is one of the best social networking media with the highest number of users. This social media platform allows its users to create different types of groups, be it a private group or public group having similar features as that of Yahoo! Group and maybe better up to some extent. You can also update and share files.

These services had been around for a long time, providing excellent services, if not better, and without any registration or any subscription.

How to Retrieve all your Data from Yahoo Group?

Yahoo stated that they would get rid of each and every Conversation, Database, Emails, History, Calendar tools, and every feature that is related to Yahoo! Groups by 31st Jan 2020.

Since Yahoo! is shutting down Yahoo Groups, users will be able to download and save all the contents from their group before Yahoo deletes all the contents from the Yahoo! group. Yahoo states you will be allowed to download any and every content from the group you’re related to just by signing in to your Yahoo account. This is the only way you will be able to save all of your content from the groups you were associated with before yahoo shuts it down.

  8. The downloaded file is a zip file. Unzip the file, and It contains a separate folder for each one of the groups; each folder held a single “messages.zip” file that, in turn, contained many .mbox files.

Note: Mbox is a standard format for exporting emails. These files are compatible with most of the email clients like Thunderbird, Mac Mail, etc. Not for Gmail, there are several third-party and open-source apps out there that purport to allow you to import .mbox files into Gmail.

The messages are only text; attachments will not be there. You have to download files and images separately.

Conclusion

Shutting down Yahoo Groups might not be the smartest thing done by Yahoo, it is rather a good step as these types of forums are getting more saturated the risk that comes along is also increasing by the day. The flies can be downloaded and saved in the user’s computer that he/she can use at any time in the future without having to risk to lose your files.

Yahoo Acquired Flickr

Yahoo notably acquired Flickr in 2005 for something in the region of $25 million. During that week, all contents were migrated from servers in Canada to servers in the USA, as Ludicorp was a Canada based corporation, resulting in Flickr to become United States federal law. Verizon Communications acquired Yahoo, including Flickr, in 2017, and SmugMug acquired Flickr from Verizon in early 2018.

Flickr users were required to sign in via a yahoo username and password after Yahoo acquired Flickr in 2007. Google and Facebook sign-in got removed when this feature arrived. Flickr somehow may not have the same influence as Instagram nowadays. But it had been a significant photo-sharing platform over the decade. Yahoo login was too monotonous for Flickr users. Users didn’t use yahoo mail or its other features and significantly forgetting the password. Too many data breaches of yahoo accounts made Flickr users even more insecure. 

Flickr no longer Tied to Yahoo

Thankfully Flickr’s login is no longer tied to Yahoo since January 2019. It announced the new system where users are no longer acquired to sign in using a yahoo id. When that happens, the users will be allowed to pick a new login email address and a new password. That address will be the only one used by their Flickr account for both authentication and emails from the company itself. Flickr partnered with a team of experts at AWS to create the new, more straightforward login solution. By leveraging AWS’s Machine-Learning based account protection, it will aid in keeping all Flickr accounts safe, adding an extra layer of security. The ability to add a phone number, enable token-based and multifactor authentication has been a critical feature in the login system. The massive amount of account holders in Flickr opts for its users to provide the necessary login system as required. After Flicker no longer tied to yahoo, it removed the compulsion of yahoo email address needed on Flicker due to the 3 million data breach of the designated yahoo id. Since January of 2019, Flickr users are no longer need yahoo login system to access their account.

New Flickr Login

Flickr community were grateful to the new login system, but the user should follow the following procedures while logging in:

  • At first, users log in to their respective Flickr accounts with the Yahoo authorization as always until the update reaches to every member.
  • Once the update is available, a blue banner at the top of the screen will appear. It will display a message for users to update their accounts.
  • Clicking the blue banner will lead the users through a simple process that will allow users to select the new login email address and a new password.

Following steps are to be followed while logging in to your new account besides of yahoo login (in detail):

  • While logging in, the login page looks different. It’s due to the migrating accounts of yahoo login. When the user login into their account with the login email, they will see a prompt message which says, “updating your account.”
  •  A temporary password is sent to the respective accounts after the account update completes. After signing in to Flickr using this temporary password, users set a new password. Once the user sets the new password, he/she can access to their respective Flickr accounts using the changed password.
  • If the account is not updated automatically, the following prompt is issued, saying, “We were unable to update your account. Please contact support for assistance”. The user needs to contact the support team to manually update their account.
  • Then the users are needed to set a new password. The new password is needed to be strong and unique to keep the account secure.
  • Two-factor authentication is updated. Now users are opted to follow this procedure to maintain a high level of security of their accounts.

 Following these steps will allow the previous users to log in successfully without yahoo authorization process. This allows Flickr users to have a much more secure account than it was before. The yahoo accounts breach became a well-known problem around the Flickr community as tons of Flickr accounts were hacked. This theft of data from billions of accounts led to a serious breakout in the world as the user’s name, address, telephone, email, and passwords, etc. were in the wrong hands. So, the new login system helped people extra security of their privacy, and the users can enjoy Flickr without the data breach.
