StartMail is built by the people behind StartPage
and Ixquick, the world’s most private search engines.
As early as 2005 we recognized the need to treat privacy as a fundamental right. We turned out to be ahead of our time. Over the next decade, revelation after revelation showed how much our online privacy had come under attack. In response, we built more and more defenses into our search engines to protect our users.
People now use StartPage and Ixquick to find information millions of times per day, without being tracked or profiled.
We then turned to our next challenge: email privacy. Everyone uses email, but sending regular email is like sending a postcard—it makes snooping very easy!
Advanced encryption technology already exists to stop hacking and mass surveillance. Making this technology user‐friendly was our challenge.
In the longer term we plan to keep adding state‐of‐the‐art privacy‐enhancing technologies, empowering people everywhere to get back their online privacy.
