How we fought an anti encryption law in Belgium - and won!
Oftentimes when governments announce plans to weaken citizens' privacy rights for the sake of 'security', the public outcry is loud and clear: If you weaken security in online services to catch criminals, you weaken the security online for all citizens. However, oftentimes this warning is ignored by governments. But this is not the story we want to share with you today; this one is a different story.

MI6 chief warns that quantum computing leads to increased security threats.
MI6 chief Moore warned in a public speech that the digital attack surface that criminals, terrorists and hostile states seek to exploit against us is growing exponentially due to technology advances in AI and quantum computing. We can fully relate to that because the internet as we know it depends on encryption: confidential communication, financial transactions, critical infrastructure - all of these are at risk if encryption can be broken. We at Tutanota have taken on the challenge to implement quantum-proof encryption before quantum computers become a reality!
Germany: New government plans 'right to encryption'.
The coalition contract of the new German government (SPD, Grüne, FDP) satisfies a lot of expectations by digital rights activists. A 'right to encryption', 'a right to anonymity', 'increased IT security', 'public money for public code' are just some of the digital promises contained in the contract that give reason to celebrate to all privacy enthusiasts.
A "Clear Name Internet" is a dangerous place: Why anonymity matters.
Social media platforms like Facebook and oftentimes also politicians want people to use the internet with their real name. The idea: A 'Clear Name Internet' would prevent criminal activities such as hate speech online. However, the opposite is the truth. Using clear names online opens a massive attack vector for criminals and threatens everybody's security.

Google has become too powerful - it's time for a European search index!
This week Google lost an appeal against a massive EU competition fine for squeezing rival shopping services on its search engine. The fine of € 2.4 billion was issued in 2017 because Google displayed its own price-comparison shopping service at the top of the search results, which led to a huge disadvantage to competitors. Regardless of the fine, Google still holds so much power over our search results that it defines how we view the world. This needs to change.
