Yahoo wants its users to lock up their emails so even it cannot read them. To this end the company is building an end-to-end encryption service that locks up emails so that only the sender and receiver can read them, leaving the service provider out of the picture.

The plug-in will work with Google's version because both sides need to be involved for successful end-end encryption.
