GET ENCRYPTED EMAIL
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.

Google is listening to your most intimate moments without your knowledge - an interview with Tim Verheyden.
On Press Freedom Day we have interviewed Tim Verheyden, the journalist who broke the story that not just the machine but also Google employees are listening when we talk to devices like Google Home.

Thanks to the free press, Tim could uncover a problem with Silicon Valley subcontractors that transcends Google.
Data protection advocates prevail: Germany builds a Covid-19 tracing app with decentralized storage.
The original plan of the German government was to build a corona tracing app that should store data centrally. Due to heavy criticism, the German government changed course: The tracing app that will warn people about having been in contact with an infected person will only store contact data on mobile phones, just like data protectionists demanded.
Using Google's location tracking can put innocents in jail.
Location tracking on smart devices happens more often than you think: Google maps, fitness apps, and others track your every move to provide or improve their services. Authorities have long desired this kind of data to solve crimes. Today, more geofencing requests are issued in the USA than ever before. This is not only a threat to freedom and democracy, it can also put innocents in jail.

Faking an email sender makes a scam email appear legitimate. Since the corona pandemic scammers increasingly fake emails from the WHO.
Spoofed emails are scam emails that are much harder to spot as scam. Some organizations that do not set up their email system adequately make it possible for scammers to send fake emails that appear as if they were actually coming from the organization in question. Since the coronavirus pandemic, scammers are increasingly trying to impersonate the World Health Organization (WHO) when sending scam emails.
