We Love Open Source

All our email clients are open source and we own our infrastructure. And while other email providers rely on closed-source services for captcha, push notifications, desktop clients and analytics, we’ve built our own solutions for these tasks, making Tutanota the best open source email service all-around.

We want everyone to have the opportunity to look at the code because it means that any possible flaws will be quickly detected and fixed. It also means that we can’t hide any backdoors, so you can trust us to protect your private emails. Before the public release of Tutanota, all our apps have been audited by independent security experts. In an extensive penetration test, experts from SySS GmbH have not been able to hack into our system or retrieve any encrypted data.

Best Experience On Any Device & OS

Tutanota apps for iOS, Android & desktops let you send secure emails wherever you are. Our fast web client & mobile apps make sure email encryption is not an additional step in your workflow, but a default. Features like second factor authentication and session handling are included with all our account types.

We continuously update and improve our apps to ensure an easy-to-use interface and a pleasant experience on any device. You don’t need to provide a phone number to sign up for Tutanota or download any of our apps: A truly anonymous email will always be guaranteed even for our basic free accounts, making Tutanota the most secure email service. TSL encryption and spam protection are included with every type of account. Many email providers prioritize profit at the expense of your privacy and comfort. The default on most services is not privacy-friendly and they make you jump through hoops and dig through settings to increase your level of privacy. Some even require you to restore your preferences after every update. At Tutanota we do the opposite: You have full control over how you use our apps. You can opt in for log-in tracking for additional security (session handling) and enable email images to load if you trust the sender - nothing is activated by default.

Sustainability

All your data is stored on our own servers in secure data centers powered with 100% renewable energy. Our offices are powered through a renewable energy provider that actively invests into building new facilities for producing renewable energy. At Tutanota we are building the email service of the future: private and secure. It’s just as important to us to protect our environment, now and in the future. Switch to green email now and help preserve resources and protect the environment!

From sustainability, to a fair and transparent payment model, to our fight for privacy, our mission is to make the web a better place. One where the employees and the users are respected, not exploited. Join our team and help us build a better internet.

Large Storage

At Tutanota you get 1 GB of email storage for your messages and attachments right from the start with any free account. This is double than the 500 MB you start with at other free encrypted email providers, and our free accounts include all security-relevant features. At the same time, most privacy-friendly email providers only offer paid accounts, no free plan. Our mission at Tutanota is that everyone must be able to switch to a secure email alternative. This is why the basic free account in Tutanota will remain free forever. On top of that, all data is stored securely in Germany.

Thanks to our paying customers, we are able to offer the most critical features free of charge to everyone so that political activists, whistleblowers and privacy-sensitive citizens who are not able to pay a subscription fee can use encrypted email. Together we will change the internet for the better!

Best value custom domain accounts

You can upgrade your free account at any time to a paid subscription with even more performance for private and business customers. Our pricing is unrivaled by any other email service provider. Not just compared to those that offer secure encrypted email, but even compared to those that make profits from tracking you, serving you ads and selling your data. Starting at just €1/month, you can have unlimited calendars and your own custom email domain linked to as many as 5 email addresses – aliases that you manage from the same inbox as your main email address.

Why you will love Tutanota

"Best emailing service I've used. Unlike Google, it actually respects your privacy and has great UI, customization and a nice minimalist design. It's only €12/yr for a premium email so it's super affordable as well."

Your data, your rules

Everyone deserves privacy, security and control over their data. That’s why even our free email account and calendar app are ad-free and end-to-end encrypted. Find out more about why privacy matters.

Why do you need more email security?

Are you finding yourself targeted by oddly specific ads and wondering „how on earth did they know to show me that?”. If you are privacy-savvy, you’ve probably found yourself having to disable permissions again and again in your device’s privacy and security settings, after a system update, even though your operating system doesn’t have a problem retaining other types of data during the updating process. It’s obvious: your activity is being tracked intentionally. From your operating system, to your browser, to sites and apps that you use and user accounts that you need to create on many of these, at every step there is data collected about you. Some of it is meant to improve the functionality of these services. A lot of it is meant to make it easier for companies to market to you.

Tracking via Gmail

Additionally, the types of activity that Google tracks is even more encompassing across devices and operating systems when you have a Gmail address and you use it to create accounts for various services - even if you’re not using Google’s Chrome browser. Are you getting email newsletters, special offers or political fundraising calls that you never signed up for? This is a given, whether you’re using a social platform, shopping online, signing a petition, donating to a cause you care about or signing up for a different newsletter that you’re actually interested in, or any other activity that requires you to provide an email address.

People who are less tech-savvy or part of age groups with less experience navigating the internet tend to leave even more breadcrumbs and are usually more susceptible to ads, fake news and other types of manipulation. It’s not just commercial messaging that targets you based on your digital profile, but even news and entertainment content. This digital profile is put together from data gathered by most of the tech companies whose products you use and then sold to and by data brokers.

Data brokers include credit reporting companies, people-finding websites, and many analytics and marketing companies. They operate in a sprawling, unregulated ecosystem and are rightfully being called "the middlemen of surveillance capitalism". They’re a multi-billion dollar industry with a lack of transparency and accountability, with an FTC report concluding that they "collect consumers’ personal information and resell or share that information with others". But the fact that it’s a well-known problem doesn’t make it easy to regulate away, with Big Tech companies opposing anti-trust legislation, even by posing as grass-roots groups.

Using a Tutanota account - as your primary email and for your user profiles on apps and sites - will make it more difficult for data brokers to aggregate data about you. What’s more, the alias feature included with all our paid accounts helps you quickly deactivate alias email addresses that start getting unwanted emails.

Just like with social media platforms, with most email providers free email isn’t really free. You already know this because of the cross-platform ads that you get served: Your attention is the product.

Privacy is in our DNA

More and more people are prioritizing privacy. Businesses are increasingly concerned with cloud security and other digital security issues. At the same time, an increasing number of consumers say "businesses should be doing more to actively protect their data" and they report feeling "concerned, confused" and a "lack of control over their personal information". About 6 in 10 adults "think their personal data is less secure now, that data collection poses more risks than benefits, and believe it is not possible to go through daily life without being tracked" by either companies or government or both. And they are not wrong.

But this is not how the internet was meant to work and it doesn’t have to be this way. It is our mission to make it better and this is what drives every feature at Tutanota.

Privacy means freedom of speech and freedom of thought. But it also means refusing to have your behavior commodified by surveillance capitalists and it means safety from exploitation, manipulation and doxxing.

At Tutanota, we believe that business models based on data collection and data exploitation must be stopped. We fight for a different internet. One where privacy by design is the foundation.

Being able to sign up for email without a phone number is a great first step. But even privacy-focused apps typically use Google Push and Google reCAPTCHA. At Tutanota, even our free encrypted email on Android does not rely on Google, but uses our own push notification service and our own open-source CAPTCHA. Furthermore Tutanota’s secure password reset and innovative search on encrypted data are additional features that ensure that not even we can gain access to your data. At the same time, Premium accounts come with many more benefits on top, making Tutanota the best email service all-around.

Tutanota is a freemium email service with a business model sustained by people who value their right to privacy enough to upgrade their account to a paid subscription. In return, they benefit from a lot of extra features as Premium, Teams or Pro users.

Freedom Fighters

Privacy & Security

Privacy and security are at the heart of Tutanota. We are building Tutanota to enable you to send confidential emails to anyone. To fight for our right to privacy - to protect journalists, whistleblowers and human rights activists around the world - this is our mission since we have started building the encrypted email service Tutanota. Support Tutanota and help us build the Internet of the future: private and secure! Together we will stop mass surveillance with built-in encryption.

What makes Tutanota better than Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook
and other conventional email services:

We don’t collect and share your data. We never serve you ads or try to guide your app usage in a way that would serve us. Security and privacy are your default with Tutanota, not a long & complex process like trying to get end-to-end encryption set up with a typical email client or adjust the privacy settings to your own priorities.

What makes Tutanota better than ProtonMail, FastMail, HushMail
and other encrypted email services:

We provide more thorough encryption than any other provider - including subject lines, entire address book, calendar meta-data. Our business accounts are easy to migrate to and include more security features than any other email or calendar service. We don’t rely on integrations with Google services, unlike our competitors. With Tutanota, you get the biggest bang for your buck, with the most features included with a free account and the lowest price points for paid accounts.

Our Team sets us apart, too: Our founders have a long track record of fighting for data independence and privacy rights. We own the company, so we don’t need to prioritize making profits for shareholders at the expense of our users’ best interests, like other companies often do. We own our infrastructure and share with you our Transparency report and every Privacy policy detail.
