Let's celebrate: It's I Love Free Software Day!

On Valentine's Day we are saying 'Thank you' with a software donation to all open source developers out there.

Bernd and Hanna celebrating Free Software Day: Open source code is crucial to encrypted apps for security.
On Valentine's Day we'd like to thank all free software developers who contributed to Tuta. You are essential for improving Tuta constantly. Today we are drawing attention to the I Love Free Software Day to show our love for open source software and open source developers.

Free Software Day

Giving back on Valentine's Day

The I Love Free Software Day was initiated by the Free Software Foundation Europe to thank all free software developers.

As Tuta is open source as well, lots of developers around the world have contributed to our open source email project. We'd like to thank everyone who contributed: You help us build an even better Tutanota every day.

If you are interested in helping us as well, please check our GitHub repository and our job posting.

Fun fact: Some of our colleagues, like Paul, started working on Tuta before they joined us as a full-time members of the team in Hanover!

To give back to the open source community, we have launched an open source donation program. Teams working on non-profit open source software can get Tuta Revolutionary for free and, thus, secure their communication with automatic encryption.

Open source guarantees security

Open source guarantees that no one can hide an encryption backdoor in the code. That's why we have published the entire client code - web client, Android & iOS apps, desktop clients - under GPLv3 on GitHub.

Only with open source, tech-savvy people can audit the code and verify that Tuta is doing what we promise: Protecting your private data to the maximum.

Tuta dependencies

On I Love Free Software Day we would also like to thank all free software developers who are working on the following projects:

We use these projects to build and run Tutanota. So here goes a big "Thank you!" to the open source community who helps us realising Tuta.

I love free software.
