Anyone who lies to their users about the security/privacy afforded by their service, so that they can make money from them, is an unredeemable asshole of the first degree. Looking at you, Protonmail.

I hope they're satisfied when their customers are getting the rubber hose treatment because they were lied to about just how private Protonmail was.

The people who need encryption shouldn't use email for communication :)
I swtched from "free" megacorp service to paid mailbox.org account only because I don't like the fact my mail provider is selling my data

@engineering
What are other available options when somebody needs encryption?
Is sending an encrypted email not enough?
