Y!TunnelPro provides enhancements and protection for users of Yahoo! Messenger. This includes enhanced privacy settings for all aspects of Messenger, boot code filtering, visual enhancements, SPAM Filtering, and full integration into Yahoo! Messenger.
One new key update included with version 2.5 is an all integration system that provides a highly stable and fault tolerant method of communication between Yahoo! Messenger and Y!TunnelPro.
Y!TunnelPro also includes several features to enhance your chat experience such as auto-completion of user names, SPAM Challenge user verification for instant messages, updated activity and diagnostic log windows, an all new auto update module, and major additions that integrate with Yahoo! Messenger.
Some of the features included with Y!YTunnelPro include:
- Easy to use! Select the filtering options you want and Y!TunnelPro does all the work.
- Yahoo! Messenger Integration. Y!TunnelPro integrates with Yahoo! Messenger allowing quick and easy access to commonly used features.
- Automatically receive updates and fixes. Y!TunnelPro can optionally be set up to automatically check for and download updates containing enhancements, fixes, and additional protection against malicious and abusive users.
- Unequaled Chat Protection! Places a barrier of protection between you and abusive users. This helps protect you against boots, invite bombs, lags.
- Duplicate line and flood filtering.Not everyone uses proper netiquette when participating in chatrooms. Repetitive messages, "screen clears", and flooding of chatrooms with random messages are filtered so you don't see them.
- Enhanced privacy.Y!TunnelPro includes privacy features that go beyond those included with Yahoo! Messenger. Enhanced privacy allows you to decide if you want to receive private messages and invites from people on your buddy list, people in chatrooms, and from people that you do not know.
- Font and Text Effects Filtering. Effects such as fading and alternating text colors and large fonts can disrupt chatrooms and in some cases can make if very difficult to read the text of the sender. Y!TunnelPro can optionally filter the senders text to remove these settings.
- "Spam-bot" blocking. Y!TunnelPro aggressively monitors the content of private messages sent by other users and will automatically block messages that appear to be generated by an automated "spam" bot.
- Enhanced chatroom and private message windows. Y!TunnelPro can optionally enlarge the chatroom and private message text entry area and the list of users participating in the chatroom making it easier to enter text and see who is in the chatroom.
