With ProtonMail, encrypted email just works. There is no need to worry about PGP keys, X.509 certificates, or even defining a password policy.
ProtonMail Email Encryption
Email encryption is based on the OpenPGP standard which has been used for email security for over 20 years. ProtonMail uses client-side encryption to protect email content and user data before they are sent to ProtonMail servers, unlike other common email providers such as Gmail and Outlook.com. Our secure email service enables you to send encrypted emails, making it almost impossible for anyone else (including us) to read them. In addition, we use end-to-end encryption to secure all messages between our users.
