Is Tutanota still secure?

in #privacy2 years ago

Encrypted E-Mail service Tutanota has come under crossfire by their own government.

I recently heard some rumors that they are now forced to comply to their local government and I asked them via twitter for a statement:

  • This applies only to non-encrypted emails received/sent after the court order has been issued.
  • End-to-end encrypted emails are not affected.
  • End-to-end encrypted data (calendar, contacts, etc) are not affected.
  • A valid German court order is required for this.


Plus there's a thread on r/privacy discussing the situation


My Opinion

Big oof. I used Tutanota in the past, but this is - for me - the nail in the coffin. How many of my E-Mails are not encrypted? Probably 99%, and Tutanota does NOT encrypt your inbox.

I'm actively trying to make people use DMail (based on Bitcoin protocol), and I moved for legacy E-Mails to criptext, which does not keep any E-Mails on their servers after you received them.

Anyways, stay safe and let me know your opinion in the comment section below!

Do you use encryption/PGP? Would you move over to services like DMail?

By the way, if you want to try DMail send me one to
