Breaking News : End-to-end encrypted email app ProtonMail launched on Android and iOS
#1

ProtonMail has announced the official launch of its mobile apps for iOS and Android which will bring seamless PGP end-to-end encryption to emailing, making it more secure for those looking for an extra layer of privacy.

The company explains, “The moment that many in our community have been waiting for has finally arrived. We have decided today to open ProtonMail to the public and go from invite only to public registrations. Both iOS and Android mobile apps are also available.”

ProtonMail is a secure email service provider, with built in end-to-end encryption which was founded in May 2014. Created by former CERN scientists, ProtonMail ensures that the mails are encrypted at the browser level itself which means that the ProtonMail servers receive mails in an encrypted format. They are transmitted to the recipients also in the encrypted format. The decryption keys are only known to the sender and recipient. This reduces the risk of any third party intercepting your mails since the data is in the encrypted format.

While services such as Gmail also offer some level of encryption, it is not end to end – hence you get those targeted advertisements, because you have given Google permission to go through your mails to send you those timely Google Now cards.

The company added, “Unlike companies like Google and Facebook who abuse user privacy to sell advertisements, ProtonMail is entirely dependent on users upgrading to paid accounts to cover expenses. Without this support, the project would not be able to operate. We hope enough of you will support us in this mission so we can continue to protect online privacy.”
