Secure Private Email Service Providers That Won’t Track You

secure private email providers

If you are someone who may be especially concerned about having an email account that tracks you (e.g. for targeted advertising purposes), or if you’re simply skeptical about these companies having records of your email correspondence in their servers, there are alternative email solutions that may put you at ease.

Popular email service providers such as GMAIL, Yahoo, AOL, and the rest of the dominant players in this market are free. However there’s really no such thing as ‘free’, right? They don’t let you have FREE email without underlying reasons…

Companies like Google (Gmail) and others provide free email services while making money from advertisers who target ads to you. Your email content is scanned (read by computers) to build a profile so that relevant ads may be targeted to you while you browse the internet.

These same companies (depending on their individual policies) may keep records of your emails forever (or for a long time). Some believe that .gov has relationships with these major email providers – which may present additional privacy concerns.

Most people though have little or no issue with this. However some of you might…

 
Here are a few alternative email suggestions:
(I’m curious to hear your own)

1. Pay for an email service provider
2. Seek out a reputable private email provider

 

Pay For Email

HUSHMAIL
Companies like Hushmail (as one example) do not read or track your email. Instead they charge a annual fee to use their service.

I have been using hushmail for my ModernSurvivalBlog email correspondence for quite a few years. Their secure private encrypted servers are based in Canada.

 

Email Providers Renown For Privacy

PROTONMAIL
I also use ProtonMail, although currently not using it for MSB communications (but I may change that in the future).

ProtonMail is widely known for it’s private, encrypted, secure email. They are based in Switzerland with very favorable privacy laws.

They offer free email (up to 150 messages per day – plenty for the ordinary user) and other various pay plans with more features.

 
CONCLUSION
Individuals have varying thresholds of privacy tolerance. Most people simply are not concerned about their online privacy (of which there is next to none).

Some people have no issue with a company making money off their online activities with targeted ads. In fact some may find it useful to see more relevant ads than otherwise.

Other people are concerned about potential cross-platform interaction with .gov alphabet agencies and these providers (I cannot confirm or deny if this exists). Has anyone listened to Edward Snowden?

That said, there are secure and encrypted methods of communications which are private and kept from prying eyes. I have no affiliation with the two options I mentioned above other than using their services.
