The Yahoo Mail app for Windows 10 is shutting down and will stop working next week. The company is already notifying users of the app that it will no longer function after Monday, 22nd May.

The message says, “Your Windows 10 app will stop working after May 22. Thank you for using Windows 10 app to check your Yahoo Mail. Going forward, please check your email in any web browser on your computer.”

Currently the Yahoo Mail app is still listed in the Windows Store, but says “Yahoo Mail is currently not available.”

Yahoo has had several security breaches to its user’s accounts dating back to 2012 and most recently last year when it confirmed 500 million accounts were breached.

It’s not clear why Yahoo is shutting down the Mail for Windows 10 app, but one could surmise it has something to do with a lack of users and the company not wanting to waste resources on it.
