Every day, Internet users around the world send millions of emails. The vast majority of these are transmitted without using any form of encryption. When you send an email at work or at home, it can be monitored, logged, analyzed and stored by many individuals and organizations.
In addition to the basic human right to privacy, email users must consider the importance of keeping business communications secure from rival organizations and should only send data in an encrypted format. The same concerns apply to the transmission of medical records, sensitive legal or personal information.
By contrast, Hushmail keeps your online communications private and secure. Not even a Hushmail employee with access to our servers can read your encrypted email, since each message is uniquely encoded before it leaves your computer.
Like many people, I need to maintain a web-based email account like Yahoo or Hotmail for times when I’m away from my own computer, traveling, etc.
Hushmail offers the same services as many other web-based email applications, but with the added benefit of 100% privacy – nobody apart from yourself – not your employer, government, Microsoft, etc. – will be able to read anything you send via a Hushmail email.
If you think you don’t need 100% secure & private email, I would ask you to read some of the user testimonies on Hushmail’s website http://www.hushmail.com/?l=424&a=253...
Hushmail works with PCs (it even integrates with Outlook, if required) and MACs and should be a must for every Internet user who is concerned about his/her privacy or even just uses web-based email applications at work.
