Google's AMP is not made to improve speed, but ad revenue.
AMP is an attempt by Google to colonize free platforms such as web and email. Google does not want to make your mailbox faster, but they want to control every aspect of it. Google's excuse is that the mobile web is too slow and because of that we need a special Google-designed web: AMP. The US antitrust complaint against Google now shows that the claim 'to improve speed with AMP' is false.

Private email - why everybody needs email privacy.
Emails have replaced letters in many places. Yet, email privacy far lags behind the level of privacy you get when sending a letter. This is a danger to everybody because it makes your vulnerable to malicious online attacks. The good news is: Private email is easy to get, you just have to know how!
Huge community support enabled us to employ our 14th team member: Welcome Jonas!
This summer, Tutanota has been under repeated and constantly changing DDoS attacks. But instead of turning their back on Tutanota, our community united to fight the good fight with us. An incredible number of upgrades as well as extensive donations have enabled us to employ our 14th team member. Please welcome Jonas with us!
Another terrorist attack, another surveillance bill proposed. Will politicians ever learn that breaking encryption would bring more harm than good?
Only five days after the terrorist attack, the EU Council of Ministers is proposing a draft to backdoor WhatsApp, Signal and other encrypted messenger apps to combat terrorism. While this looks like politicians have just been waiting for another attack to present their newest surveillance bill, let's look at the facts of this particular case: Would Austrian authorities have been able to stop the Vienna terrorist attack, had they had access to the encrypted chat history of the terrorist prior to the attack?
What is Joe Biden's stance on encryption?
Almost all votes are counted, and it looks like Joe Biden is going to be the next President of the United States of America. This has a huge impact on lots of issues, and also on the ongoing crypto wars between privacy defenders and state surveillance advocates. So how would a new presidency affect encryption? What can we expect from Joe Biden?

The NSA phone surveillance program was illegal and expensive: And it did not stop a single terrorist attack.
Data from the USA and Europe show that mass surveillance does not help to stop terrorist attacks. Yet, the authorities continue to rely on surveillance technology like facial recognition and location tracking. Instead we must focus on our human rights and protect what is important to keep the power with the people: Our right to privacy and freedom of speech.
DDoS attack on our DNS infrastructure
Last night multiple DNS providers were attacked to take down Tutanota. In combination with wrongly cached DNS entries for the tutanota.com domain at different DNS servers, this led to a downtime of several hours for millions of Tutanota users. We had switched DNS entries, but as the propagation takes time, some users did not get access to Tutanota immediately.
