Today my Yahoo! mail had a new prompt to set up a mail "sign-in seal," designed to warn you if you’re logging into a potential phishing site.
Some of us at Zone had a heated discussion about this feature, agreeing we like the ability to customize with an image, color and/or wording. "Always be closing," shown in the image, is what I chose.
For some reason the seal only appears in Firefox even after I made sure I had a mail cookie set in IE.
On public and shared computers, everyone sees the same image — so everyone needs to know what the image should say. It might be nice to have a wizard to prompt wording that will create a standard format among users such as "Your family name" (e.g., The Smiths) or "Your business or organization name" (e.g., SF Public Library)
Aside from that, it’s very easy to use and good for peace of mind.
