Just read a post here talking about email.

What email provider do you use? Are there any really private ones that are good?

I have read about proton. Is there a catch?

I just signed up for the lowest cost protonmail service (not free); they also provide VPN which I see you had asked about elsewhere

Their stuff is the real deal for encrypted email IMHO. You can even send encrypted messages to non protonmail users.

Get a free account; if you like it you can upgrade to a paid one.

Why did you upgrade to the paid one?

According to the below link, you only get 500 MB of space with the free account, which isn't much these days.

Gmail absolutely SUCKS when it comes to privacy, just like all things Google.

Yo, sure, scan my email messages and attachments “anonymously.”

But wait! I don’t want to get this thread locked down by “The Locksmith” moderator. Clearly, it doesn’t take too much.

Wow and even if you pay up, you only get 5GB. At least gmail gives you 15gb for free. And you could always spin up another gmail account and just use that to forward your email.

Privacy is over rated. I've had my gmail account for over 15 years. I've had to clean it out once in a while but still using the free service.

I'm not sure that gets political. Just depends how you view privacy. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Yeah so google knows everything I do, and then? There's never any reply after that.

We're bombard by ads all the time, on TV, on the streets, on your phone etc. You just have to be smart enough to ignore them.

Me too. I like GMail. My other is an off-shoot of Yahoo ..... att.net. No need to have att dish, internet or landline with it. It's free and available beyond any subscription.

You're using the internet, so you're being tracked. If you have a smartphone, you're being tracked. Good or bad, it's 2020 and it's just the way it is. If you think otherwise, you're a fool.
