The aim of Email-Comparison is to provide an objective comparison of so-called private and/or secure email services, so that you can make an informed decision about which provider to use.


The official version of this site is hosted at email-comparison.as93.net
The source, plus all data is on GitHub at github.com/lissy93/email-comparison


We do not recommend any particular provider, but simply display (what we know as) the facts about each. It is up to you to do your own research, and make a decision based on your personal threat model and requirements.

This is a community maintained resource, so if you notice any infomation that appears incorrect / out-dated, please open an issue or PR on the GitHub repo.


We put enourmous trust in our email provider, it's the gateway to all our other online accounts, personal communications and real-life administrtion.

At this point, it's a known fact that many mainstream email providers (like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, GMX and more) offer us a free service because they are getting something far more valuable in return: our data. Maybe this doesn't bother you, after all, you've got nothing to hide, right?
But using these services, mean that how our personal data is handled and used is out of your control. You do not know who it's being sold to, which AI algorithms it's being fed into, which governments it's being shared with, or even how it's being used to manipulate you.


This website was originally created by Alicia Sykes (@Lissy93 on GitHub).
I have a particular interest in privacy, security and cryptography. And as such, it's important to note that I have worked with or for several of the providers listed on this site, as well as several others not included here. BUT none of the infomation here is based on my personal opinion or experience - just facts.

My objective is to create applications, resources and tools, to help people take back control of their data. Everything I make is open source. You may also be interested in Personal Security Checklist and Awesome Privacy. Or, if you're into the world of self-hosting, then I also maintain Dashy, Portainer-Templates, AdGuardian Home and a fork of Awesome Self-Hosted.

You can check out other projects that I've published at apps.aliciasykes.com
