Tutanota – Free Encrypted Email

Tutanota offer FREE encrypted email, keeping your online personal life and private data safe from unauthorised access. Based in Germany, Tutanota is the world’s first and most secure end-to-end encrypted email service.

Using their own unique open source technology, the Tutanota team passionately strive for privacy and freedom of speech online, allowing everybody, including NGOs, journalists and activists, to send encrypted emails on their desktop and mobile.

In addition to FREE accounts for individuals and NGOs, Tutanota’s affordable business version enables companies and organisations of all sizes to easily secure their email communications.

On top of automatic end-to-end encryption as standard, Tutanota is also one of the few mail services that already support DANE. The DANE protocol effectively protects against MITM attacks and, the Tutanota team point out, “should be implemented by all email providers to protect their users’ personal data.”

The Tutanota team also use Extended Validation SSL certificates for extra security, as well as DNSSEC, DMARC, DKIM, PFS & STARTTLS to secure email content to the maximum.

They have even added the option of two-factor authentication, and their mission is to be an encrypted alternative to Gmail with a calendar, notes and fully encrypted cloud storage.

Started in 2011, two years before the Edward Snowden leaks, Tutanota now have over two million users and continue to passionately contribute to a future internet where all personal information is private, safe and secure by default.
