The need for Hushmail
Every day, people around the world send billions of emails. The vast majority of these are transmitted without using any form of encryption. When you send an email without encryption, it can be monitored, logged, analyzed and stored by your employer, your internet service provider, or worse – a hacker.
In addition to the basic human right to privacy, email users must consider the importance of keeping business communications secure from rival organizations and should only send sensitive information in an encrypted format. The same concerns apply to the transmission of medical records, and sensitive legal, military or personal information.
How does Hushmail help?
Hushmail keeps your emails private by encoding each message using encryption. Encryption is a way of transforming a message so that it is unreadable to anyone but the sender and its recipients. Hushmail makes encryption seamless and transparent – we encrypt your message automatically before it is sent, and then restore it back to its original form when the recipient reads it.
