Enhances security with the most unassailable open source encryption algorithms!
If you are worried about the safety and security of your communications over the internet then consider downloading Mail1Click. Computer programmers and ethical hackers advise android and iOS users to avoid the default Gmail and Yahoo apps that come preinstalled in their devices due to their level of security or lack thereof.
Mail1Click is a free encryption email service that employs the three most unassailable open source encryption algorithms (TLS, RSA and AES) to encrypt and decrypt email messages. The 4096 bits long RSA key is composed of a private key and a public key. The private key is used to encrypt sent messages and decrypt received emails while the public key is used to encrypt messages sent from a normal email address to a Mail1Click user.
Encryption and decryption is done automatically in the background without interfering with normal phone usage. Communication between parties is transmitted through the same server which enhances security. If an email is intercepted by a third party, he will require a key (specific to the intended recipient) to decrypt the message thus he will be left with nothing but gibberish.
Additionally, Mail1Click provides personal headers in lieu of the regular email headers. This ensures that the email cannot be traced back to the original sender (his IP address to be specific). Any attempts to trace the IP address of the computer used to send the message will be channeled to an IP address located in Germany.
But what happens when you send an email to a non Mail1Click user? The intended recipient will receive an email notification and a link which will help in decrypting the message. He will then be prompted to enter a username and password after which he will be assigned a private key which will decrypt the message. If an email is sent to you from a normal email address, the message will be automatically encrypted using your public key and before it’s received in your mailbox.
Email attachments are also encrypted using AES 256 algorithm and stored. The free version gives you up to 25 MB of limited space available. However, for a monthly fee of $2.99, you can increase the usable to 10 gigabytes. Since the app is available on IOS, Android and Windows platforms, you can access your encrypted mailbox virtually anywhere by logging in to their website.
This is a very easy app to download and use especially due to its user-friendly interface. At just over 7 MB, it is a light app that’s light on your phone’s resources. It allows people who prioritize privacy to keep of all their emails and at the same time providing inviolable security. Other advantages includes auto-destroy options as well as the option to limit forwarding of your sent emails. It is therefore important for people/businesses that want to protect their office correspondence and other vital information such as credit card purchases, bank statements, emails with sensitive information such as social security/ personal ID numbers, political opinions etc.
Remember that the app is built according to the strong law of encryption. This implies that once you lose your password, you have lost your mailbox. There is no way to recover your password.
