Skiff is shutting down - but your emails can stay private!
In a major surprise, end-to-end encrypted service provider Skiff has announced that they will be shutting down all their services as they merge with Notion. All Skiff services will be closing in a period of 6 months. This is sad news for the privacy community as having more options for secure encrypted communication is always a positive for growth, competition, and innovation. Yet, it is nothing new in the privacy scene. Tuta (formerly Tutanota) has been around for about ten years now, and we have seen alternative services like Lavaboom, CTemplar, and now Skiff, coming and going. Regardless, you can rest assured that Tuta is here to stay!

It's Data Privacy Day. Let's fight surveillance capitalism!
The statement "I have nothing to hide" is very popular. So is reversing it: Give me your email login, your Facebook login, a copy of your WhatsApp chat. Most people will refuse instantly.

Apple & Google Monitor All Your Push Notifications. That's Why We Need Alternative Notification Providers!
