    "Protect your freedom, protect your privacy! Take back your email privacy today with StartMail!" — as heard on The News & Why It Matters

    • No Ads, No Tracking

      Break free from Big Tech

      Unlike Big Tech email providers, we don't make money off tracking your email activity, profiling you or serving intrusive ads. Startmail will never serve you ads, and protects you from identity theft, spam and phishing attacks.

    • Unlimited Aliases

      Protect yourself with Anonymous Aliases

      Need to provide an email address to sign up for an online service but want to protect your real identity? With StartMail you can generate unlimited disposable email addresses on the fly. Keeping your identity safe and your main email address free of spam.

    • Encrypted Emails

      Keep your email between you and your recipients

      Unencrypted email can be intercepted, and sensitive data can easily land in the wrong hands. With StartMail you can send encrypted emails to anyone, even if the recipient doesn’t use encryption. This ensures that other people can’t read your confidential messages, ever.

    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!
