Why U2F is important: How it works and why you need it.
As security experts we recommend that you protect your accounts with U2F two-factor authentication. You use a key to lock your front door or your car.

Australian Whistleblowers on Trial: Stop the War on Whistleblowers!
In Australia - like we've seen multiple times in the USA - there are two very brave whistleblowers, Richard Boyle and David McBride, going to be on trial later this year. Their fault: calling out wrongdoings of the government. Similar to famous whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, they informed the public on abuses of power - crucial for any democracy. While Boyle & McBride are being prosecuted in Australia, the EU pushes for better whistleblower protection. The Australian case shows why this move by the EU is more needed than ever!

Whistleblower Protection Act: Finally European governments realize that whistleblowers need to be protected & are putting this requirement into law!
After the corruption scandals at Wirecard and the scandal of EU MP Kaili being bribed by Qatar, European governments are finally increasing whistleblower protection!

To enable SMEs as well as larger companies to comply with the new law, Tutanota now launches the Whistleblower System Secure Connect.
