GET ENCRYPTED EMAIL
Meet the secure mail client of the future: We invite you all to join Tutanota's public beta.
On October 3rd 1990 German re-unification enabled millions of people in the former German Democratic Republic to make use of freedom of speech and their right to privacy. 27 years later, in celebration of this great victory against state surveillance, we are releasing our brand-new encrypted mail client of Tutanota! We invite everybody to join this exciting journey of making encrypted emails not only easy and secure, but also enjoyable.
Internet Privacy: How to Keep Your Internet History Private
The eyes of internet users around the world have been focused on the United States as internet privacy and net neutrality protections are being taken down. Even if you don’t live in the States, it’s likely that some portion of your internet traffic flows through American pipes. Beyond that, what happens in US regulation - especially online and in the tech industry - becomes mirrored in other countries.
Tutanota now supports 2FA with TOTP and U2F.
We are happy to announce that TOTP has just been added as an option for two-factor authentication to the beta client of your secure email service Tutanota! This release comes shortly after the option of using two-factor authentication (2FA) with a security device (U2F). As our developers are heading for the public beta release of our brand-new client this month, we are noticeably speeding up our development.
Ropemaker Exploit Allows Attackers to Modify Mails - Tutanota Is Not Affected
Security professionals warn of a new mail exploit that allows an attacker to easily change the content of an email even after it has arrived at a mailbox. This exploit only affects desktop clients such as Apple Mail, Microsoft Outlook, and Mozilla Thunderbird. Tutanota as a webmail client with its own mobile apps is not affected.
Update of your secure mail client: Tutanota adds 2FA support
Your secure mail service Tutanota has just become more secure! We are happy to announce that we have enabled two-factor-authentication (2FA) for our encrypted Tutanota beta client. We are now working hard on making the client ready for the public beta release in September.
Data Leaks Rise in Numbers - Yet Leaks Can Easily Be Prevented with Encryption
Data leaks are becoming more and more common - small leaks don't even make it into the news anymore. Recently, there has been an enormous data leak, though, that could have been easily prevented with encryption: A US marketing firm has stored data of 198 million US voters for an unknown period of time easily accessible in the cloud.
The Fight for Net Neutrality Is a Fight for Freedom of Speech and Democracy
The Internet as we know it is a magnificent space where everyone has the right to share their thoughts freely. However, people living in dictatorships experience a much different Internet: Censorship, blocking of major sites or social media platforms are normal to them. If we allow Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to decide what content they want to show us and what content they want to block, this is exactly how we can expect our future Internet to look like. To protect freedom of speech and democracy, we must fight for net neutrality now.
Release Notes 2.14.5: Bugfix for Some Browsers
This release is a bug fix release. After our last update the Tutanota emails were not viewed correctly in Chrome browsers on mobile. This has now been fixed.
Get excited for the brand-new dark theme of your secure mailbox!
We are excited to announce that we have added a dark theme to our new Tutanota client. At the moment the new client is still in private beta. But as we have fixed a lot of bugs now, this release is a big step towards the public beta release later this year.
Politicians, Stop Exploiting Terror for Surveillance. It Won't Make Us More Secure.
Terror attacks are tragic. Terror attacks make each one of us long for security. That's why politicians repeatedly call for more surveillance after every terror attack. Most famously Theresa May, who wants to rip up human rights laws to fight terrorism. However, compelling data shows that more surveillance won't help at all: Every identified Islamist terrorist in Europe who killed innocent people with a terror attack since 2014 was already known to the authorities prior to the attack.
