Tutanota and Tor: Security and Privacy Go Hand in Hand

Everybody has the right to whisper. We want that everybody has the right to whisper online as well. That's why your Tutanota encrypted emails can also be accessed via the Tor browser.

Tutanota works in all common browsers, Tor is one of them. However, registration within the Tor browser under Windows is not possible as the browser gets stuck. We know about the issue, but have not found a solution to date. We believe that most Tor users do not use Windows for security reasons. If you use Tor under Windows, we recommend signing up with a normal vpn for hiding your IP address.

We do not log your IP address

However, we take your right to privacy seriously. Tutanota does not log your IP address upon signing in. We also strip the IP addresses from emails sent and received for privacy reasons. We aim to bring the most secure and most private version of email to your device. That's why we currently work on preventing automatic image loading within an email. This issue will be fixed with our next release.

Hanna makes Tutanota come to life. Her credo: Every one of us has the right to express any idea freely, or to keep it secret. Encryption is a great tool to achieve the latter.
