Criptext - a free encrypted email service

Criptext is a free encrypted email service for Windows, Linux, macOS, Android and iOS. It has been around for a while, but I thought it may be worth looking into.

Before we get started, allow me to say that this article isn't about Criptext vs Protonmail, so we're not going to discuss which one's better. It's about what Criptext has to offer.

The applications for Criptext are open-source, but the servers are not. Then again neither is Protonmail's. (Okay, I know I just said I won't compare the two, but this is the only time I do it in the article).

The final paragraph from the quoted article (with an obvious typo corrected):
Quote:
I don't think Criptext is for casual users. Why? Well, it can't encrypt mails that you send to mail addresses belonging to other services. The privacy/security that encryption provides are its primary feature. So, unless you manage to convince people to shift to Criptext, you're probably not going to be using it every day.

If you find another guy who's willing to use Criptext on the daily basis, please let us know.

Why would anyone use a email service that is NOT an established standard? Use TLS to your provider, and one of the widely implemented standards for content. For business, that's S/MIME.

From eM client: "Message Encryption with PGP or S/MIME"
