ProtonMail is the new mailing service made by 5 PhD students from Harvard, MIT & ETH Zurich. The founders met at CERN(European Organization for Nuclear Research) located in Switzerland.
Why ProtonMail is much more safe then any other mailing services?
- Switzerland Based: ProtonMail is incorporated in Switzerland and our servers are located in Switzerland. We are outside of US and EU jurisdiction and all user data is protected by strict Swiss privacy laws.
- Zero Access: Because of our end-to-end encryption, your data is already encrypted by the time it reaches our servers. We have no access to your messages, and since we cannot decrypt them, we cannot share them with third parties.
- Easy To Use: ProtonMail works out of any modern web browser, there is nothing to install. We are also backwards compatible with other email providers so you can continue sending and receiving emails from friends who are not using ProtonMail.
- Forever Free: We believe privacy is a fundamental human right and should be available for everyone. That’s why we offer multi-tiered pricing including a free version that anyone can use. Let’s bring privacy back to the people!
- Fully Anonymous: We do not log IP addresses or require any personal information to sign up. We accept bitcoin and cash payments for paid accounts to ensure even paid account users have complete privacy.
- Cross Platform: ProtonMail works on all devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. It’s as simple as visiting our site and logging in. There are no plugins or apps to install – simply use your favorite web browser.
The mailing service is created in the wake of NSA’s snooping habits on citizens and collecting personal data from anyone, anywhere and anything and stores it without any legal permission.
ProtonMail’s beta-phase has started from May 16th. For now, the mailing system is providing 100 MB of storage and 500 emails/month.
ProtonMail uses to end-to-end encryption and take extremely intense user authentication measures, meaning your data is apparently inaccessible to the ProtonMail team, let alone any government.
ProtonMail also has a SnapChat like feature, wherein users can program their emails to self-destruct once they’ve been in a recipient’s inbox for a certain period of time.
It is time that we give a try to people who are seriously making an effort to dismantle the wrong system made by the various governments around the world.
