If so, how it is different from MailFence?
Mailfence is solely dedicated to "email privacy and security" and was born as a result of Snowden Revelations with a belief of "Privacy is a right, not a feature". Following are other precise distinctions.
  • No American Company in the SSL/TLS chain (no that easy to find) | Qualys SSL labs - A+.
  • Provides "True" end-to-end encryption - E2EE (all the crypto-processes occurs on the client side) | OpenPGP based (RFC 4880 > openPGPjs): Fairly audited.
  • Digital Signatures (OpenPGP & S/MIME).
  • Integrated Key-Store for managing (import, export, modify, revoke, delete...) all the crypto-keys | Full PGP interoperability.
  • Requires no third-party (add-on/plugin...) and therefore gives you complete control of your privacy with-in a single platform - which is the biggest landmark that we've achieved.
  • Full efforts at transparency (maintains an up-to date warrant canary) | locally hosted in Brussels-Belgium.
Needless to say - mailfence holds a significant amount of "uniqueness", not only with its in-house services but from tons other main-stream solutions as well.
Moreover, as I mentioned earlier - we donate 15% of "Pro" subscription revenue to dedicated associations (Electronic Frontier Foundation and the European Digital Rights Foundation) that globally defend the rights of user privacy on every possible level - which further aligns our values and goals towards online privacy.
