Secure Email Alternatives – October 2014
I was a beta tester for the secure “startmail” service, and am a fully paid up startmail user.
However, in the greater interests of promoting privacy everywhere, here is a run down of alternative encrypted email providers from across the globe.
Back in June last year, confidential documents leaked by Edward Snowden indicated that major email and cloud storage providers like Google, Microsoft, and others were part of the NSA’s top secret surveillance program called PRISM. And if that wasn’t enough, there have been numerous reports of companies snooping on their customers themselves.
All these revelations have made Internet privacy a burning issue, with many privacy-conscious users now turning to services that claim to be secure from prying eyes of the NSA and law enforcement. In this article, we take a look at some of the privacy-focused email and cloud storage services that have either sprung up or gained popularity in the wake of what has popularly been referred to as the Summer of Snowden.
