We believe online privacy matters.
Privacy is a right, not a feature. This is the founding principle of the Mailfence service. After the 2013 global mass surveillance revelations by Edward Snowden, it became evident that online privacy is threatened. Therefore, we decided to launch a highly secure email and collaboration service which respects the privacy of users.
Mailfence is completely free from ads. We do not send spams or solicitations. We have never and will never commercialize our databases or share data with any third-party for targeted advertising or any other purpose.
Our SSL/TLS certificate does not include any US certification authority in the certification chain. Check our design philosophy for more details.
We do store your private key on our servers but we can't read it, since it is encrypted with your passphrase (via AES-256). There is no root key that would allow us to decrypt messages encrypted with your keys.
Moreover, our code is open to audits or scrutiny by recognized security experts.
