Secure your Email
The basic business model of most large email providers such as Gmail and Yahoo revolves around data collection so there is little or no respect the privacy of your inbox.
Third party access to user emails is common practice as is tracking your purchases along with access by government surveillance agencies.
The location where your email service is located effects your data privacy, Switzerland has laws to protect data privacy, while other countries have laws to erode it.
There's a relatively simple solution to keeping your email more secure, just switch to a secure email provider that respects your privacy. We reviewed several providers and recommend ProtonMail.
ProtonMail uses end-to-end encryption and zero access encryption to secure emails. This means even ProtonMail cannot decrypt and read your emails. As a result, your encrypted emails cannot be shared with third parties.
ProtonMail has a simple and easy to use web interface along with mobile apps and includes some useful features like message notification settings and Self Destructing encrypted emails, so they will be automatically deleted from the recipient's inbox once they have expired. This technology works for both emails sent to other ProtonMail users, and encrypted emails sent to non-ProtonMail email addresses.
It's worth setting up a free account and switch any conversations you want to be confidential to it immediately.
