Storage space. One comes with 500MB storage on Swiss servers and the other has 1GB storage on Swiss servers. Both fit into any budget for those who desire a private and secure email service with many “bells and whistles” such as multiple aliases, top level SPAM controls and a sophisticated Email management system to pre-process incoming emails fully automatically.
Absolutely NOT! For many, email has taken over as the primary mode of communications; you send messages to anywhere in the world in an instant. But if you are using a “free” service, you send those emails openly for the world to see with ease. How is that? Because through sophisticated technology, they are able to scan, analyze and categorize your personal information and then sell it to third party advertisers. They are making billions every year by doing this.
Will my PrivacyAbroad Secure Email contents remain protected if it is sent to an unprotected address?
Your PrivacyAbroad Secure Email is protected and stays anonymous over the internet while in transit. Once it is opened inside a unsecured email it becomes text. To fully protect your content even when sent to an unsecured free email account, you will simply use our Swiss Safe. This feature gives you another layer of protection that will secure all data sent to any unprotected address. You will have complete control over when and where the message is read. The unprotected Email receiver must click on a link, which will take them to a highly secure Swiss server, they will then enter a password given by you in order to read your message. You will also have the ability to set a time limit for the message to be read, allow or disallow the message to be copied and even restrict the receiver from forwarding the message. This gives you 100% protection for your data or document that is going to an unsecured email address.
Yes, absolutely! The contents from an unsecured Email do not diminish in any way the ensured protection of your Secure Email.
Yes! We do delete your IP address from the ‘Received’-Header. While all unsecured Email providers show your IP address, we do not as it is our commitment to serve you with the utmost data protection.
While it is not proven that the NSA can bypass basic encryption, it is certain that most if not all safeguards within the USA are at jeopardy. This is due to legislation such as the Freedom Act and FISA where agencies can call upon US based companies to release customer information without warrant. But we must also remember that if they were able to bypass all internet safeguards themselves, they would not have the PRISM program. They would not need to depend on internet companies to collect emails, cell phone calls, search engine searches, etc. if they could do it themselves. Meanwhile the mainstream media continues to report NSA abuses and thus creates fear and a sense of hopelessness leaving law-abiding citizens at a crossroads believing their only answer is to give up and do nothing. Rest assured though that countries like Switzerland have strong data laws in place to protect their citizens and others around the world who desire to regain their online privacy. PrivacyAbroad and its partners are committed to protecting your online data and will continue to improve upon our innovative services to protect our law-abiding customers from hackers and unwarranted searches alike.
