Founded in 1999 in Canada, Hushmail is a web-based e-mail service provider known for its focus on security and privacy. Over the years, it gained a security-minded reputation by offering end-to-end encryption, which protects a message's content from being intercepted by unauthorized parties.

Signing up for a Hushmail account is free, with additional features available through paid upgrade plans for businesses. All Hushmail accounts are HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant and offer 2FA (two-factor authentication).


While Hushmail offers a high level of encryption and privacy, no system is immune to security breaches. Users should follow best practices for online security and stay mindful of phishing attempts.
