• Reclaim Your Privacy and Stop Email Surveillance with MsgSafe Mailbox from MsgSafe.io

    MsgSafe.io unveils MsgSafe Mailbox - a complete email identity protection solution incorporating virtual email addresses, end-to-end encryption and intelligent domain management into a sleek, easy-to-use webmail interface.

    PANAMA CITY, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - MsgSafe.io, a leader in communications privacy solutions, today announced the latest release of its globally deployed, advanced email privacy platform, MsgSafe Mailbox - the next generation of webmail that hides a user's real identity, email address and location from being discovered.

    MsgSafe Mailbox provides users with a complete email privacy solution. Unlike other webmail service providers like Gmail or Yahoo, MsgSafe Mailbox users have complete control of their email, domain and privacy in one easy-to-use webmail platform. Users protect their online identity by creating unlimited virtual email addresses, allowing for a multitude of personas or identities. Virtual email addresses are credible and enable users to send and receive email privately and securely while hiding the email's source location. Users create a virtual email address for each person, business or purpose and MsgSafe.io will keep your true email address, identity and location private and protected – eliminating the identifying details or "meta data" that most emails leak. MsgSafe Mailbox makes it easy for users to verify email authentication to protect their domain or brand from phishing scams - fraudulent email messages that appear to come from a legitimate source (e.g., your company, family member, university or bank). Users control what they receive, ignore or block – making it difficult for others to track them, market to them or steal their identity.

    "MsgSafe Mailbox is the next wave in the email privacy revolution. MsgSafe.io users now have the option to use or forego forwarding their identity email messages to their real email address. Now you can view all of your messages from the MsgSafe Mailbox interface just like a regular Inbox. It's the perfect tool to replace your existing email service provider and reclaim your privacy. Users can protect their online identity whether at home, work, school or traveling abroad. Need to add or delete a virtual email address? Just login to MsgSafe.io to manage all of your email." says Rachel McPherson, MsgSafe.io's Director of Operations.

    For the first time in any commercially available email service, MsgSafe.io offers location masquerading, allowing users to set the region their email is delivered-from, to further hide the user's real identity and location. Users can bring their own domain or discreetly purchase a domain through MsgSafe.io to experience even greater flexibility.

    Unlike other domain registrars, MsgSafe.io users can create virtual email addresses using their domain free of charge. Optional upgrades allow users to buy a non-referring MsgSafe.io domain and create unlimited virtual email addresses from anywhere in the world. Whether traveling abroad, working remotely or from home, MsgSafe Mailbox makes it easy to create unlimited virtual email addresses on the fly with only an Internet connection. Protect your entire family or organization from imposters by managing all the virtual email addresses for your domain using MsgSafe.io.

    MsgSafe.io users can rest assure their email is automatically encrypted providing the highest level of email security in any commercial webmail service on the market today. MsgSafe.io emails are always encrypted, regardless of whether or not a user has chosen to encrypt — and are only decrypted when they are read by the intended recipient. Users have the option to import their GPG public key or easily create a new S/MIME or GPG encryption key for each virtual email address through the MsgSafe Mailbox interface.

    MsgSafe.io incorporates advanced encryption techniques providing interoperability between OpenPGP and S/MIME so encrypted information can be exchanged, regardless of which standard is used between those communicating. Not even an eavesdropper, Internet service provider (ISP) or MsgSafe.io can read or decrypt a user's messages.

    "We are excited to incorporate MsgSafe Mailbox - the most secure, privacy driven webmail solution to users all over the world. Now you can stop telecom companies, governments and hackers from seeing with whom you communicate. Managing your email, domains and encryption from anywhere in the world just got easier with MsgSafe.io." says Rachel McPherson, MsgSafe.io's Director of Operations.

    MsgSafe.io is a collaboration of engineers located around the world, all dedicated to the development of communications privacy tools to protect your data online. Our technical operations are based in Curaçao, one of the most secure privacy-oriented jurisdictions in the world, surpassing Switzerland and Luxembourg. We believe nobody should be able to access your email except for you. It's that simple.

    Regular user accounts and service will always be free of charge, but compelling premium features are also available starting at $ 3/mo. Sign-up for a free MsgSafe.io account today! Visit us at https://www.msgsafe.io/web/signup

  • MsgSafe.io Launches End-to-End Encryption Tools that Make Users Globally Undetectable

    MsgSafe.io expands its communications privacy tools incorporating end-to-end encryption to eliminate the threat of email interception

    TORONTO, May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - MsgSafe.io, a leader in communications privacy solutions, today announced the latest release of its globally deployed, advanced email privacy platform. MsgSafe.io allows its users to create unlimited 'identity' or 'alias' email addresses protecting the users real identity, email address and location from ever being discovered. MsgSafe.io's end-to-end encryption (E2EE) supports both popular standards, OpenPGP and S/MIME. For the first time in any commercial email service, interoperability is provided between OpenPGP and S/MIME so encrypted information can be exchanged regardless of which standard is used between those communicating. Not even an eavesdropper, Internet service provider (ISP) or MsgSafe.io can read or decrypt user's messages.

    Other email service providers (ESP's), offering end-to-end encryption, still route customer email through potentially untrusted ISP's and email servers before the email reaches its final destination. Customers are left without knowing if their email was accessed by an unauthorized entity and have no way of preventing it in the future.

    Unlike competing ESP's, MsgSafe.io closes the gap that exists when email is sent unencrypted. Even when unencrypted email is sent to a MsgSafe.io user with email encryption enabled, it's automatically encrypted before being delivered to the user's Inbox, protecting it from being read by the users email service provider (ESP) or other unauthorized entity.

    "When an airline sends a customer their itinerary, via email, it's sent unencrypted leaving the customer vulnerable to identity theft. However, when you use MsgSafe.io, your emails are automatically encrypted and forwarded to your real email address keeping your contact, financial and travel information private and protected. Other email service providers may use the content of your emails to learn about you and send targeted advertising. MsgSafe.io believes no one should have access to your email except for you." says Rachel McPherson, MsgSafe.io's Director of Operations.

    MsgSafe.io addresses another problem that exists with encryption that is often overlooked. When the sender does support encryption, like Facebook with GPG, but mail readers, like Apple's iOS and OS X Mail.app or Microsoft's Outlook, only natively support S/MIME, it causes interoperability issues. MsgSafe.io's end-to-end encryption (E2EE) supports both popular standards, OpenPGP and S/MIME, so encrypted information can be exchanged regardless of which standard is used between those communicating.

    MsgSafe.io's encryption features mean whether it's airline tickets, bank alerts or emails from online retailers, MsgSafe.io's users are protected from prying eyes without any additional setup, truly a first and a major step towards online identity protection.

  • MsgSafe.io Adds "Hold Mail" Feature To Its Email Privacy Solution

    MsgSafe.io launches a new "hold mail" feature providing users with additional control over their email and their online identity. MsgSafe.io allows users to create fake email addresses to use when sending secure and encrypted email, shopping online or creating social media accounts without ever having to use their real email address.

    Let’s take a minute to brainstorm reasons why someone might need a fake email address. Maybe they're secretly James Bond and need multiple identities. Or perhaps they’re applying for a new job and don’t want to use their work email address. MsgSafe.io allows users to create as many fake email addresses as they want, while keeping their real identity private.

    MsgSafe.io incorporates advanced email forwarding technologies, providing a secure and encrypted way to send email while protecting the users real information from prying eyes such as government, telecom companies and spammers.

    "We believe nobody should be able to access your email except for you. It’s that simple. As a collective group of engineers, we developed MsgSafe.io to provide users with a solution to their privacy concerns. We understand that people are worried about their email being intercepted, monitored or sold; that's why we developed MsgSafe.io. While other email service providers say they're protecting your privacy, MsgSafe.io actually provides an email forwarding solution that protects your privacy, your online identity and your location at all times." said Rachel McPherson, MsgSafe's Operations Manager.

    Users simply sign-up for a MsgSafe.io account and create a new “identity.” An identity is like an alter-ego or fake email address that's used instead of a real email address. Users can have “peace of mind” that their real information remains protected at all times.

    MsgSafe.io Best In Class Features:

    MsgSafe.io works with any email service you are currently using such as: Outlook, Yahoo mail, Gmail, mail.ru and others, without having to download any software or plug-ins.

    Users can create as many fake email addresses as they want or bring their own domain.

    Msgsafe.io automatically forwards the email from the users fake email address to their real email address. So, there is no need to log-in to multiple accounts to check email.

    Users have the option to choose from where their email is sent. If you want your email to look like its from the Netherlands, Singapore, Russia or the U.S., you have the ability to choose your location to further hide your email from government, telecom companies and spammers.

    MsgSafe.io technology eliminates the ways people learn more about you using email metadata. MsgSafe.io strips your emails of this unnecessary metadata and other tracking technologies to protect your privacy, your online identity, your location and other details about you.

    Users can encrypt all messages sent and received from their contacts using OpenPGP or S/MIME keys that you can automatically generate in MsgSafe.io when setting up an account.

  • TrustCor evolves email identity protection and security, launches MsgSafe.io

    PANAMA, Jan. 12, 2016 /CNW/ - TrustCor, a leading provider of privacy products and services for businesses and individuals, announced the beta release of MsgSafe.io – the first service to allow users to create unlimited virtual identities for exchanging email that is both anonymized and encrypted – bringing identity protection and privacy to new heights.

    MsgSafe.io helps users protect their online identity by providing unlimited virtual email addresses, allowing for a multitude of personas or identities. Create a virtual email address for each person, business or purpose and MsgSafe.io will keep your true email address, identity and location private and protected – eliminating the identifying details or "meta data" that most emails leak. Users control what they receive, ignore or block – making it difficult for others to track them, market to them, or steal their identity. The service provides a number of free and premium domains and users are encouraged to bring their own domains to experience even greater flexibility. Virtual email addresses are credible and enable users to send and receive email privately and securely.

    "MsgSafe.io reduces or eliminates the way people learn about you by watching your communications," says Wylie Swanson, TrustCor's co-founder and Chief Technology Officer. "It protects the content of your emails, your location, and works with your existing software and providers without requiring changes. Unlike other services, you don't have to download new apps or change service providers. These features are critical differentiators because users have increased protection even when their contacts don't use or support encryption. For example, when a bank or airline sends statements containing sensitive information, like your travel itinerary, the emails are encrypted before they reach your inbox and cannot be profiled, read or decrypted – not even by your email service provider or someone with your account credentials."

    "Encryption provides the highest level of privacy and security for e-communications, but there are two prevalent standards, OpenPGP and S/MIME, and they are not compatible. For example, Facebook supports OpenPGP-based encryption for email notifications, but Microsoft and Apple products don't natively support OpenPGP, in favor of their native support for S/MIME. MsgSafe.io solves these compatibility challenges because it supports both standards, and delivers email using the technology standards chosen by the user. In other words, the only way to read encrypted email notifications from Facebook natively on an iPhone is to use MsgSafe.io." Swanson added, "Beyond supporting both encryption technologies, we decided to provide free-of-charge encryption certificates to all users that sign up for the service. While the free certificates benefit users of MsgSafe.io, they are the industry standard and the value goes well beyond using the MsgSafe.io service – they can also be used with any other application or service that supports S/MIME security standards."

    TrustCor has been working with device manufacturers, major software companies, and WebTrust-certified auditors for the last two years to develop their globally trusted certificate authority, which is the acknowledged cornerstone to online security and privacy. "TrustCor already uses the certificate authority to guarantee security between elements of the infrastructure." Swanson added, "We also generate secure email encryption certificates and keys for all virtual identities and their associated contacts. With this capability, we can encrypt and protect your messages at rest when they're saved on your computer or phone, as well as when they're being transmitted across the network, without using any third parties that may not honor your privacy the way we do."

    "To further protect users from aggressive governmental snooping, MsgSafe.io's technical operations are based in Curaçao – now seen as one of the most secure, privacy oriented jurisdictions in the world. Traditional safe havens such as Switzerland and Luxembourg don't even come close to the privacy protection offered by Curaçao's strict privacy laws." Swanson continues, "We wanted to build MsgSafe.io right from the ground up. We needed our technical operations in a legal jurisdiction where it's difficult or impossible to compel us to reveal anything regarding your privacy." In addition to Curaçao, MsgSafe.io maintains secure transmission nodes in Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States, and more are being added. This has the major advantage of allowing users to associate their identities to these specific regions. It also allows the service to use sophisticated telecommunications routing to avoid known areas of concern when it comes to government snooping.

    You can now create a free MsgSafe.io beta account by visiting https://www.msgsafe.io – Regular user accounts and service will always be free of charge, but compelling premium features are also available for a reasonable cost.

  • TrustCor Systems, First AMS-IX Caribbean Customer of 2015

    TrustCor Systems S. de R.L., a provider of state-of-the-art privacy enhancing products and services for businesses and individuals, is the first customer in 2015 to connect to AMS-IX Caribbean in Curaçao. By connecting to this Internet exchange, TrustCor is able to reduce upstream connectivity costs and improve global efficiencies, fault-tolerance and quality of service

    The infrastructure of AMS-IX Caribbean allows customers to interconnect and exchange IP traffic, better known as peering, directly with all other AMS-IX Caribbean customers. This reduces the need to send traffic through a commercial transit provider. With many major global IP networks and other Internet players peering in AMS-IX Caribbean, a connection allows for easy and relatively inexpensive connectivity through BGP peering.

    “Taking advantage of multiple international fiber routes is part of TrustCor’s long-term strategy to make eavesdropping on communications significantly more difficult for those intent on violating the privacy of our customers,” said Wylie Swanson, TrustCor’s Chief Technology Officer. “Increasing the diversity of our Internet access gives worldwide communication companies, and our customers, more options to reach our services through many different paths. By peering at AMS-IX Caribbean, TrustCor is taking another step towards protecting the privacy of our international customers.”

    AMS-IX Caribbean saw considerable growth during the previous 15 months. The peak traffic number increased by 76 percent from 3.8 Gb/s at the end of 2013 to 6.7 Gb/s in March 2015. Currently, 13 customers are connected to AMS-IX Caribbean.
