Written by Chaithanya RC

Hey techies, Do you know that our e-mails could be read by government’s security agencies? Well, you might be convinced by someone who says that this is done for our national security. Especially, you’ll hear this statement from U.S’s own security agency NSA(National Security Agency) who intrude into VIP’s e-mails and commoners like us too. Each mail is being monitored by them. But,we need online freedom right. So let me introduce you to Private E-mail or Web-mail services that preserve your privacy. Here goes the list with their features…..

Guerrilla Mail:- 

Guerrilla mailGuerrilla mail is an online e-mail service that can give you a disposable temporary e-mail address which is destructible automatically within 24 hours after delivering it to your recipient.

Now, Compose your mail  and hit “Send”. Prove you’re not a robot and your message will be sent instantly. Now your recipient can see only a fake e-mail id that you chose to display in his ‘From’ address.You can even send/receive bit coins anonymously.  So in this way you can preserve your privacy.

I recommend Proton Mail based on its promising features that it provides and it is safe-guarded by Swiss laws.But as of now they are adding more servers & doing a lot of research to give you the best secure product.So try to reserve an e-mail id for yourself at ProtonMail and you’ll be notified when you have a chance.
