Secure Web Mail

1) Proton Mail - Free or $5.00/month
ProtonMail is incorporated in Switzerland and all their servers are located in Switzerland. This means all user data is protected by strict Swiss privacy laws.
No personal information is required to create your secure email account. By default, we do not keep any IP logs which can be linked to your anonymous email account. Your privacy comes first.

2) Tutanota – Free or $1.35/month
Another secure email provider we were recommended was Tutanota. The name “Tutanota” comes from Latin by combining the words “tuta” and “nota” which mean “secure” and “message.” Based in Germany, this provider — like ProtonMail — also offers encrypted secure email for free. Using open source encryption, Tutanota scrambles the contents of emails sent and received through the mail provider. Even if a message is not sent in an encrypted manner, the “Sent” record is encrypted while it is stored on Tutanota servers.

3) Hushmail -$49.98/ year
One of the more premium players in the secure email space is Hushmail. Recommended most by members of our executive team, Hushmail has the industry-standard encryption that the previously mentioned providers also offer; the true differences with Hushmail lay in usability. Hushmail can be integrated with (nearly) any mailbox app in the market. And with a whopping 10GB of storage and an unlimited number of email aliases, Hushmail definitely delivers when it comes to add-ons.

4) Posteo- $1.13/month
Posteo offers the most all-around ethical and friendly secure email service. The German-based company prides itself on its sustainability, touting everything from office employees commuting to work via bicycle to using Greenpeace Energy electricity, and even server hardware made with as little toxic material as possible. Offering encrypted calendars and address books in addition to their encrypted email, Posteo is a wonderful, cost-effective solution for anyone looking to encrypt their entire mail suite.

5) Mailinator- Free or  $29.00/month
A different approach to maintaining secure email can be taken by being selective about who receives your email address. Think of the mass number of websites and apps that gate your access with an email address. Most of those websites probably aren’t taking much database security in mind. It just takes the right hack for your email address to be blacklisted. Do you wanna do that? No.

Mailinator is, for lack of a better phrase, a burner email. As a burner, you pick an email address you’d like to have at practically any domain. Then, when the next shopping site or the next emoji app requests your email address, give them the Mailinator email. It’ll come into the public mailbox where you can accept whatever nonsense email confirmation you need, and presto! You’ve gained access to what you need without endangering your real email address.

6) Maildrop - Free 
Another temporary email service, Maildrop is here to save your inbox from spam. Use MailDrop when you don’t want to give out your real address to third parties. Just give someone any e-mail address in the maildrop.cc domain, put in the e-mail address, and boom — you can see that inbox. There’s no signups, no passwords, and no registration to keep you from that ‘signup verification’ email you have to  confirm. While the messages themselves are not encrypted (and it’s a receive-only inbox) the personal security that this service provides your private email inbox is invaluable. Remember, Maildrop and the free versions of Mailinator are public email inboxes, so make sure nothing confidential is going there.
