Just wanted to really check if my emails from my iphone usage can be sniffed meaning be visible to someone if I would use some WiFi hotspot,
like when traveling...
In order to check this, had to establish my small test environment, like very good described here: Capturing iPhone traffic with Wireshark
Now different techniques possible but I wanted to do it fast, lazy me...
So I opened captured with Wireshark packages and searched for "yahoo" and "google" as email services I am using:
Now about findings:
- For yahoo , I see certificate exchange and more:
- For gmail, also:
and sadly ( joking ) - nothing unencrypted/unsecured about my email text, email contacts etc
Well, feel myself safe ,
PS: nothing especially been made for default email settings,
However, for gmail account: "Using of SSL" set to ON,
Yahoo mail on iphone currently has no such setting.
