Tutanota, Cryptography

Founding year:
Founding team:
Arne Möhle, Matthias Pfau

Tutanota is the world's first fully encrypted webmail system. All of the user's data is encrypted and can be decrypted automatically in the browser (locally). As a spin-off of the L3S Research Institute at Leibniz University, Tutao GmbH has developed this innovative encryption solution over the past four years and successfully launched it on the market. Meanwhile, well over a million people worldwide use the secure email service. By integrating encryption in a very simple automated way, we are making an important contribution to the privacy of all of us and are thus fighting against mass surveillance on the internet without any reason.
