    I have my Yahoo! email account synced to my iPhone (5S) running IOS 9.0. I have been concerned about taking the newer updates both because of the problems they contain, as well as the changes they will make to the security of the iPhone. I do not want to give any ground to the government on getting easy access to our phones without our consent. I am sensitive to the Bill of Rights-type issues.

    In any case, when I go to read news stories contained in the email links ... the iPhone spins them back to the email, like it is censoring what I am allowed to read. It is really frustrating. I dumped Google and Yahoo as the browsers from the iPhone because they are both trying to monitor. I went with DuckDuckGo, which does not monitor. I am concerned Apple is intentionally trying to create problems with DuckDuckGo so people do not choose it but that is not their call. Any ideas???

    So much fail.

    • Updates mean more security, not less.
    • Neither Google nor Yahoo are browsers.
    • Apple chose to include DDG as a search engine.
    • Apple "cares" more about users' privacy than most other tech companies, as it has built its reputation on being private & secure. iOS goes to great lengths to protect user info. If Apple abandoned this, they would stand to lose much much more than they would gain.
    • Lastly, you use Yahoo! email? Ok then.
