StartMail Finally Launches Business Plans to Take on Google and Proton Mail

Must read

We have been seeing a growing trend of privacy conscious people switching to secure email services to escape the clutches of Big Tech, who are relentless in harvesting every bit of data they can find on their users.

Many have settled for services like Proton Mail and Tuta who have free plans, but their products keep privacy at the forefront, unlike the likes of Google and Microsoft.

This nature is also what attracts many business customers to their services, who don’t want Big Tech’s data-mining hands in their operations.

StartMail is another solid email service by the privacy-focused search engine Startpage, and they never had a dedicated business offering that organizations could use to manage a crucial part of their online identity.

Luckily, that’s changing now. 👇

Announced last week, StartMail introduced a new “Business” subscription geared towards small businesses, solo entrepreneurs, and freelancers.

During the launch, CEO of StartMail, Robert E.G. Beens added that:

Users of the business plan will get to take advantage of many features like:

  • Unlimited email aliases,
  • Unlimited domains
  • PGP encryption for mails
  • 20 GB of storage
  • Compliance with GDPR
