    Swiss Based
    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.

    Zero Access
    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.

    Backwards Compatible
    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.

    Forever Free
    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!

    Fully Anonymous
    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.

    Cross Platform
    ProtonMail works on all devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. It's as simple as visiting our site and logging in. There are no plugins or apps to install - simply use your favorite web browser.

  • Tresorit

    Commercial Mac Windows Linux Android iPhone ... Android Tablet Windows Phone iPad Blackberry 10 Website

    Tresorit is a security solution for distributed storage systems, and with it a group of users can share secure content without trusting any administrator or third party provider. This system guarantees the users that they can: share content with a group; handle read and write permissions; manage dynamically changing groups; and no one outside the group can read or write files. These properties can be reached with implicitly granted security, based on a strong cryptographic technology.

  • SpiderOak

    Commercial Mac Windows Linux Web Android ... iPhone iPad Xfce Website

    SpiderOak provides an easy, secure and consolidated online backup, storage, access, sharing & sync tool for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (Ubuntu, Debian & Fedora). SpiderOak offers a different approach to online backup, synchronization, and sharing. This difference is not just measured in our zero-knowledge privacy policy - the first one ever employed in this setting - but also in our flexible design in handling data from all platforms (Mac, Windows, Linux) and locations (external drives, network volumes, USB keys) in one centralized account.

    A Sync may exist between any two or more folders including two folders that exist as part of the same machine (e.g. between a desktop and an external hard-drive). The 5.0 series have introduced the SpiderOak Hive folder. Any items placed inside Hive will automatically upload and then sync to all your other devices (thus effectively replicating the Dropbox folder).

    Note: While SpiderOak was formerly a free service, plans currently start at $7/month or $79/year. A 60-day free trial is available.

  • SnowHaze

    Freemium iPhone iPad Website

    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!
