We’re thrilled to announce that Hushmail for iPhone is now available for Hushmail Premium and Hushmail Business customers to download from the App Store.
The app brings all the security features of Hushmail’s webmail version to your iPhone, enabling you to send encrypted email when you’re on the go. And it lets you send secure email to anyone, even people who don’t use Hushmail.
Emails you send from Hushmail for iPhone to other Hushmail users are automatically encrypted, and when you send an email to someone who doesn’t use Hushmail you can choose whether or not to encrypt it. Data is encrypted before it leaves your device, protecting the body of your emails and any attachments. The app also supports two-step verification, for an added layer of security.
Setting up the app on your iPhone is simple. After you download and open it, you’ll be asked to enter your Hushmail email address and passphrase, then you’re good to go. If you have more than one account, no problem—the app supports up to 10 accounts. You can also send email from Hushmail aliases that you’ve set up through webmail. Just draft your email on the app and tap the alias you want to send from.
The app takes full advantage of the iOS platform. It supports Touch ID, so you can open the app quickly and safely without having to enter your passphrase every time. Hushmail for iPhone also supports push notifications to let you know as soon as you receive a new email.
Hushmail for iPhone is synced with webmail, so all your contacts and settings are ready when you are. Just start typing an address and the contacts pop up. The app also connects with your iPhone contacts, making it easy to send encrypted email to anyone in your address book.
Hushmail for iPhone is available now to all Hushmail Premium and Hushmail Business customers.
