Common questions

  • How secure is Hushmail?

    Hushmail uses multiple layers of industry-standard encryption to protect your communications both when stored on our secure servers and when on the move. The first layer is OpenPGP encryption which protects the contents of your email, ensuring its security, privacy and authenticity. This encryption happens automatically between Hushmail users and is easily managed with a checkbox for users outside our system. Every email sent or received with OpenPGP encryption will remain encrypted on our servers. The next layer protects all traffic to our website with SSL/TLS encryption and to outside servers that support it.

  • Can I move my emails from my previous provider over to Hushmail?
