Secure email with absolutely no compromises, brought to you by MIT and CERN scientists.
ProtonMail is incorporated in Switzerland and our servers are located in Switzerland. We are outside of US and EU jurisdiction and all user data is protected by strict Swiss privacy laws.
Because of our end-to-end encryption, your data is already encrypted by the time it reaches our servers. We have no access to your messages, and since we cannot decrypt them, we cannot share them with third parties.
ProtonMail works out of any modern web browser, there is nothing to install. We are also backwards compatible with other email providers so you can continue sending and receiving emails from friends who are not using ProtonMail.
We believe privacy is a fundamental human right and should be available for everyone. That's why we offer multi-tiered pricing including a free version that anyone can use. Let's bring privacy back to the people!
We do not log IP addresses or require any personal information to sign up. We accept bitcoin and cash payments for paid accounts to ensure even paid account users have complete privacy.

You are most probably not selling guns to Yemen over the Internet. However, already very basic information about you can be very harmful if in the wrong hands. Your health data could be sold to an insurance company, which could deny selling you insurance. You could see more expensive flight tickets on the internet than your neighbor does because the site that is selling you the tickets already knows where you want to go. There are tons of more examples and the technology to analyze collected data is evolving at an incredible pace! While all popular browsers (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, etc.) offer functions that claim to protect your data ... well, they don't really. They erase your local data, but the much more harmful part on the internet stays there, easily accessible for everybody. This is why it is so important to protect your data. There is no browser to entirely hide your activities on the internet (even TOR and SnowHaze do not), but we do everything to protect your data as good as we can. The technologies that SnowHaze uses are not new. But until now, it was too hard to set up, the interfaces were just ugly and the pages would not even load correctly. This is why we created SnowHaze - The first easy to use browser that really protects your data. Let us know what you think; we would love to hear your opinion!
