Top End-To-End Encrypted Email Services

Services like Gmail & Microsoft Outlook will say that they provide their customers with an encrypted or encoded email service, and these companies undoubtedly do offer them. Their security keeps your information protected while it is journeying through the numerous protocols, which is rather important as this can stop governments and hackers from snooping on your conversations. But they can still be accessed and opened by hackers and government agencies, and apart from governments, many a times companies too snoop on the emails for advertising purposes. Hence, it is extremely important that we secure our emails without wasting any time.

Mentioned below are some of the best enctypted email services:

  • Proton Mail– Its servers are based in Switzerland, and it is one of the best online encrypted email service providers. This service can be accessed for free.
  • Tor Guard– A top-of-the-line encoding VPN & Email provider.
  • GnuPG– Is the same as OpenPGP, and it can work with almost any email service. Involves complex set-up.
  • Rise Up– A Seattle-based secure email service provider, and their high-end developers are all birds (at least, their pseudonyms are all based on birds).
  • OneShar– This secure messaging service can self-destruct. As a result, they are good for sending passwords and other email addresses.
  • Counter Mail– Counter Mail is also an encrypted email service provider, and they claim they are easy to use.
  • Bit Message– This is a peer-to-peer (P2P) messaging system.
  • NeoMailBox– This encrypted email service provider can be used with Outlook, Netscape – I don’t remember using it the last time – & Eudora. Their servers are also based in Switzerland, and they offer unlimited addresses.
  • Opaque Mail– Open source and available on GitHub.
  • Shazzle Mail– This encrypted email service was primarily designed for cell phones, mainly iOS & Android, but is now available to download on PC and Apple computers.
  • Hush Mail– This can be used as your email service provider. Allowing you to send encrypted emails, without having to install any security software on your PC.
  • Crypto Heaven– This is also a web based encrypted email service provider, meaning you do not need to install any other software, but it is expensive.
  • A/I – The company A/I not only provides encrypted emails, but it also offers services for Blogs.

You can use any of the above services but we recommend Proton Mail because apart from being extremely secure, it also provides 500 MB free data usage.

Opera adds inbuilt free VPN

The popular browser Opera today added inbuilt VPN service in its browser. This feature has been rolled out amid growing concerns of user privacy and net surveillance .

The official tweet from Opera regarding the update reads:

VPN means Virtual Private Network . It is basically a layer between the user and the ISP (Internet service provider). It is a technology that creates an encrypted connection over a less secure network. It helps the user to:

  • Hide IP address
  • Unblock blocked content
  • Enhance security of Open networks

Opera is the first major browser to come up with this feature and this might be a game changer for Opera which has been constantly market share to its rivals.

VPN is used by millions of users to browse the web freely but they need to pay for it (~$ 50/year). There are free VPN services but not very usable due to slow speed. With Opera providing this feature inbuilt and for free, the service will find many users.
