We recently stumbled on a very private and secure email service. We have searched, tested and ditched many email services, until now.

ProtonMail has designed a fully encrypted email service with a balance between usability and security with the goal of guarding against mass surveillance.

As stated in their blog, “There will always be a trade off between security and usability, anybody that tells you otherwise is lying.”

At ProtonMail, their goal is “to guard against mass surveillance and we feel the best way to do that is to give encryption to everybody. The only way to do that, is to make encryption easy to use. This is why ProtonMail works out of any modern web browser, and why we went to great lengths to make the cryptography completely invisible to the user.” Read more…

Check ProtonMail out here. They have paid and free plans. We started with a free plan to check it out and had to get on a waiting list, but it was only about 2-3 weeks before we had our new email.
