How Hushmail Works

Reading a secure email

If the recipient’s email account is hosted by Hushmail, they will read your email in their regular email application, or using our webmail or Hushmail for iPhone app.

Recipients who are not using Hushmail will receive a link to a secure web page where they can read your email.

The first time someone reads a secure email on the web they will create a passphrase. They will need this passphrase to access any future emails sent using Hushmail.

If you added a security question to your email, the recipient will need to answer it before reading your email.

The recipient reads the email on a secure web page.
