Secure Email Provider Tutanota a Launches Free Encrypted Calendar

From the TutaNota Blog:

“Our encrypted calendar – Tutanota Calendar – has just been added to your secure emails. This new feature brings amazing privacy improvements. With our encryption expertise, we have not only made sure that all data you enter is encrypted, we are also encrypting notifications for upcoming events. In contrast to other calendar services, we do not know when you have an appointment, where you have an appointment, or with whom you have an appointment. Basically, we remain completely blind to your daily habits.

“The Tutanota Calendar is a huge step for us in becoming an encrypted groupware solution. Encrypted email, encrypted address book, the encrypted contact form Secure Connect – and now an encrypted calendar: Our vision of the future is that people can easily make use of the cloud without giving away any of their personal data. Tutanota’s built-in end-to-end encryption makes this possible.”

The full article is much longer and may be found at: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/free-encrypted-calendar/. It describes the many advantages of Tutanota Calendar versus Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, and a number of other online calendar providers. The two more obvious features are:

  1. Everything is encrypted so that no one else can ever see any of the contents of your calendar, not even the TutaNota employees.
  2. No sneaky automated spyware that later generates advertising for you to see as you travel around the World Wide Web.

The now released encrypted Tutanota Calendar is a beta version.
