The real price of free email

There are plenty of so-called “free” email services, but they aren’t really free. You pay with your privacy. Big Tech companies are creating detailed profiles of our personal lives and making billions by selling our data. They save your private messages and information, even after you delete it. This opens you up to intrusive ads, identity theft, spam and phishing attacks!

  • 89%

    of people do not want their data used for personalized ads.

    StartMail puts you back in control - no tracking, profiling, or intrusive ads.

  • 70%

    of phishing emails are opened by their targets.

    StartMail warns you every time you click an external link to protect you from phishing attempts and keep your personal data safe.

  • 85%

    of all emails are spam.

    StartMail lets you create disposable email addresses for every service you sign up for. This protects your inbox from spam and helps identify where data has been leaked.
