Two tech giants are teaming up to make emails more secure.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Google and Yahoo are working together to encrypt emails through data on users devices.     

Right now, emails are encrypted by data stored with tech companies.

The hope is the two companies can make the new form of security a more widely used consumer service.
