Some Very Good email services with high security You may not know, and find the alternatives you like.


Hello, dear friends here. We are living in the Internet Age, Internet has changed a lot of things, but, still there are many VERY IMPORTANT things that Internet should and can not change, such as personal privacy, security.

If you are concerned with your email security, here in this post, you come to the right place, I am going to share some awesome free email services and some disposable email services.

Of course, some popular email services, such as THE GOY TEAM(Gmail, Outlook mail and Yahoo mail), are enough for most people to use. Among them, Google Gmail is the best according to the polls I created, but have you ever know that? when talking about email safety/security, maybe, there are some better (free) email services than all of them. You can have a try to decide if you want to take some emails as your GOY alternatives, I like exploring and trying to use some new Internet products, so how about you? Whatever, you will have more choices.

The famous top free email services on the Internet I know: Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo mail, AOL mail, zoho mail, gmx, yandex...

AOL mail

Lycos Mail, a cool domain.

GMX mail, which is from Germany, I have used GMX mail, however, there are ads email showing sometimes, so not recommend.

zoho mail, zoho mail is something better as the alternative of GOY(Gmail, Outlook mail and Yahoo mail), the fresh point is the "note" function, you can write something as notes rather than drafts. BTW, you can register zoho mail with a short username. zoho is my recommendation, and you will enjoy it.

Yandex mail, which is from Russia.

PAID ONLY, Hushmail, Hushmail is a technology company located in Canada, focusing on private email service, Hushmail provides the customers with the highest commercial safety standard. It seems that NOW it has no free plan(25 MB storage allowance with the free account, and you must sign in your free hushmail account once every three weeks.) Many people say that Hushmail is even safer than Google's Gmail. Is this right or wrong? Of course, it's up to you.

PAID ONLY, FastMail, Fastmail do get a better reputation in the email area. Coming from Australia, FastMail is one excellent email services provided by one Internet security company, FastMail is very famous for its speed and safety. In the past years, FastMail once provided free account, but now, they only accept customers who pay them dollars.

Guess what: You even can create simple website with your fastmail account, which definitely is very cool!


Tutanota, Tutanota is a free/paid encrypted online mailbox provider located in Germany, it is Open source and forever free. there are,,, and for anyone to register freely, awesome!

ProtonMail, Protonmail puts privary first. ProtonMail is a new Internet company founded by some scientists, host located in Switzerland, which is meaning that it only obeys the laws of Switzerland-the most famous neutral country forever. As they say they want to build a more secure Internet. Now ProtonMail Beta provides 500 MB, free. If you want to register one ProtonMail account, you have to send a request to them, then you can create your free Protonmail account.

Riseup mail, Riseup provides online communication tools for people and groups working on liberatory social change.

Riseup mail is provided by, something like ProtonMail, Riseup mail is free email service with high security, also it does not accept direct registrations, you have to send request to them, or you need two invite codes. It is said that Riseup mail is not too easy to get approved, you can try to ask some invite codes at Reddit, good luck.

QQ mail(foxmail), if you are in China, qq mail maybe the better one, which provided by China's number 1 social company-Tencent, while, not recommended. Again, not recommended. not-recommended.

So, will you want to register these email services?

If you know some nice email provider, welcome to share them with us?


Some free disposable email services. Disposable email services mean you just can forget the email addresses after you use them, sometimes when you do not want to use your primary email account, disposable email service are just such a nice choice for you, but if necessary, you need to backup some important information in case you need them. There are many nice free disposable email services, such as mailinator, getairmail, guerrillamail, YOPmail, 10minutemail..., just have a Google.
