Microsoft Outlook.com today announced two new features that adds more security to the its e-mail system.
- The first is complete support for DMARC, a standard that makes it harder for someone to deliver phishing mail to your inbox.
- And the second is support for Extended Validation Certificates (EV Certificates), which provides a more secure SSL connection when you are using Outlook.com.
Microsoft is the first major email service to provide this higher level of safety and security. These features will help prevent hackers from stealing your account information and protect your account from phishing attacks. Microsoft also announced that EV certificates are coming to others Microsoft services like SkyDrive too. Your email just a lot safer at Microsoft’s hands!
