Tutanota automatically encrypts all your data on your device. Your mails as well as your contacts & attachments remain private. Using Tutanota you can easily communicate with any of your friends using the power of end-to-end encryption. Even subject and attachments as well as all your contacts are encrypted and safe from prying eyes.
Encryption and decryption of data always happens locally on your device upon login whether you’re using a web browser on your desktop or the app on your mobile device. All email data is end-to-end encrypted and only you can access that data with your password.
Secure Email just a few clicks away
With the free account option you get a choice of Tutanota domains to use with your chosen email address. Setup is extremely simple & you can immediately start sending & receiving emails right away without any verification required beforehand. With the free account you get 1GB of encrypted storage to house your emails & attachments which is more than generous when you look around at the competition who are mostly offering 250mb with free accounts.
