German court stops Facebook's data collection mania.
Facebook just lost an appeal in a case stating that the social media giant violated antitrust laws. The Federal Court of Justice in Germany confirmed a prohibition order by the German Cartel Office that leads to strict regulations and ultimately stops the unlimited data collection of Facebook.
Tutanota is no longer using the term Blacklist.
The Tutanota email client has never used any racially insensitive terms such as blacklist. However, in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, we have now revised our FAQ and How-to to replace some phrases with neutral descriptions.
Why email privacy matters.
When email was invented decades ago, no one took privacy concerns into consideration. Email became the main tool for private and business communication. For many, email became the replacement of letters. Yet, email privacy lags far behind the privacy of a letter. While this issue was neglected at first, today everyone understands that an email is as private as a postcard. Now is the time to act upon this knowledge.

New lawsuit against Google sparks discussion on privacy protection rights.
Internet users in the USA accuse Google of spying on their surfing habits - even when browsing the web in 'private mode'. Now they want to fight for damages with a $5 billion lawsuit.
Kids need encryption in today's internet.
Parents that use the internet act like small children when playing 'Hide and Seek': Toddlers just cover their eyes when hiding, thinking if they can't see themselves, no one else can see them either. That's how parents handle their kids' data: When they store events and pictures on online servers, they keep telling themselves that only they can access the data. It is, after all, protected with a password.
L3S of Leibniz University and Tutanota launch research project to secure emails against quantum computer attacks.
We are happy to announce that we are working together with the L3S Research Institute of the Leibniz University of Hanover on PQmail - a research project with the goal to implement quantum computer resistant cryptography available for everyone in Tutanota.
Privacy win: Surveillance of German BND is unconstitutional.
Since the Snowden leaks in 2013 everybody knows that secret services around the world are monitoring online traffic. The German BND is no different. However, in Germany privacy rights are strictly protected by the German constitution. Now, the Federal Constitutional Court has ruled that the surveillance by the BND is unconstitutional and must change. A win for privacy - and another reminder that only end-to-end encryption can protect our data.
At Tutanota we always try to encrypt as much of your data as possible. Unfortunately, we made a mistake which led to unencrypted storing of birthdays of your contacts. This has happened for the birthdays of contacts which have been created or edited after June 2018. Please note that this bug only affected the birthdays of your contacts. All other attributes of your contacts (name, email address, etc.) have been and will always be stored end-to-end encrypted.
Tutanota launches MTA-STS support for custom domains with Let's Encrypt.
We are excited to let you know that with our latest release we have implemented MTA-STS support for custom domains by joining forces with Let’s Encrypt. While today almost all email providers support this important security extension for their main domain, it is still very hard to get for people using their own domain to send and receive mails. This must change as MTA-STS brings much greater security to all email users.
