Feature List: Development achievements of your secure email service Tutanota.

2018-10-17 / Updated 2023-3-22
Tutanota is an innovative end-to-end encrypted email service that takes your privacy seriously. With the built-in encryption only you can access your data. Tutanota comes as a secure webmail client along with open source Android & iOS apps and desktop clients. We continuously improve Tutanota so stay tuned for upcoming features!

At Tutanota, every member of our development team is very passionate about privacy, security and open source. We work on Tutanota not just because it is a job, but because it is very fulfilling to work on someting with a meaning: We work on a product that enables everyone to protect their private data and with every new user who joins Tutanota, we feel like this is another tiny victory against surveillance capitalism.

We understand that we still have a long way to go until we can fully match the product of surveillance capitalists such as Google or Microsoft, but our development progress in recent years has made great leaps so that we are ready to scale Tutanota to new levels!

Best in class security

Here are the most important features that make Tutanota's security unrivaled:

Our goal with Tutanota is to make security easily accessible to everyone. That's why we strongly focus on usability and convenience. The entire encryption process runs in the background, and you can use Tutanota as easily as any email service.

You can use Tutanota with absolute certainty that you will never pay with your data.

Some features in Tutanota are only available to paying users. With every upgrade (starting at 1 Euro per month), you support us and our mission to bring privacy to the world! Thank you.
