Just yesterday I talked about Yahoo Messenger 11 beta being released with new set of features. One of the features which concern me was availability of your conversation or Chat History online on Yahoo servers which is quite bad in terms of privacy. As for most of us, Chat is often private personal stuff and hence its dangeroous that its saved online. What if someone hacked your acount, apart from emails he also not get access to your chat history.

Today we will talk about how to set this feature off. Just by changing  a simple setting, you can disable Yahoo messenger online conversation/ Chat/ Phone history. If you want to view your Yahoo messenger online conversations history that is being saved, you can see that.

To turn this feature OFF, you just need to navigate to Messenger>> Preferences or just press Ctrl+Shift+P to get the Yahoo messenger preferences window. Here in ” Conversation History“, you need to select “Do not keep a history of my conversations”.


That’s it and you are all done. Now Yahoo messenger online conversation history is disabled.
