End-to-end encryption protects your email messages from being stolen by hackers, read by spies, or used by Google or Microsoft for targeted advertising. Encrypted email is essential for protection of your online privacy, security, and digital rights. Mainstream email providers like Yahoo Mail, Gmail, or Hotmail, don't offer you end-to-end encryption because that would jeopardize their business model.

However, your personal email should be completely private and not read by companies to make a profit off of you. Luckily, there are plenty of gmail/yahoo/hotmail alternatives that keep your messages private and secure from prying eyes of advertisers and governments.

Don't expose your private email messages to hackers, cyber criminals, identity thieves, and governments around the world you can’t trust. Sign up with one of these secure and private email providers for an encrypted email.

All of these private email services offer free basic entry for account creation, end-to-end encryption using asymmetric public key cryptography, public cause and activism, anonymous sign-up.

What is end-to-end encryption, public key cryptography and asymmetric encryption?
Asymmetric encryption is the one where users generate two keys to encrypt their data – a private key, and a public key. When someone wants to contact you securely, they use your public key to encrypt the message. To read the message when you receive it, you decrypt it with your private key. Since public keys are available to everyone, you need to make sure nobody tried to spoof your identity using your public key to impersonate you and communicate with your contacts.
