We are happy to announce that we have updated the Tutanota apps for Android and iOS. This release shows that security is paramount in Tutanota as we strive to bring to you the most secure email service.
U2F support on all clients
Both apps, iOS and Android, now support U2F keys - the most secure way to protect your login credentials. This update complements the release earlier this year when we added U2F support to the desktop clients.
Here we explain why U2F is important and why it is the most secure option for two factor authentication.
You can now use hardware security tokens on iOS & Android if your device supports USB or NFC hardware tokens.
We recommend to set up two factor authentication in Tutanota now to protect your login from malicious attacks such as phishing.
Please also write down your recovery code shown to you when adding a second factor!
Share-to on iOS
You can now also use the share-to option of many apps to directly attach files or images or add text to a new email in Tutanota on your iPhone or iPad. On Android this function was already supported.
This should work flawlessly for most apps now.
Due to the unlimited number of apps, it is possible, however, that Tutanota appears in the share menu of some apps, but does not yet understand the attachments of these apps, or some apps might not even appear in the share menu.
In such cases it would help us a lot if you could get in touch so that we can support common apps that were not yet included in this release.
