Tutanota is another secure email service, that makes end to end encryption easy. One thing that stood out before I even made an account was that they published all their code on Github. What is nice about this is that anyone with the right skill can check the code and make sure it is secure and safe to use. Using Tuanota is quite straight forward, you register like any other email service. Then log in and your good to go and communicate securely. The majority of your information is encrypted, the only information that is not is the sender, recipient and date (which they are working on encrypting). Your emails are encrypted before they are sent to Tutanota‘s servers with AES 128 bit and RSA 2048. Another added bonus is that they strip your IP address from the email so that your location will remain hidden (they do not log IP addresses unless there is abuse to the system). Have more questions?

Tutanota ‘s approach to secure email is great! They have made all the code open source and public, allowing for anyone to review and check it. The team behind Tutanota has awesome ethics, “My aim is to fight mass surveillance. I write code to fight for our human right to privacy…” – Matthias (one of the developers). The ideas that Tutanota support is what really caused me to like them. There multiple services that offer secure and private email, Tutanota’s team adds a more personal element that draws me in. Special thanks to a reader who told me about Tutanota.
