Best email provider
Last updated: October 28, 2020

Here's our favorite email provider: Fastmail.

Why: Fastmail provides email without engaging in tracking or surveillance of your private communications. Remember - if you're not paying for the product, you ARE the product (or as Shoshana Zuboff puts it, your behavioral data is being harvested as the product).

Business model: Paid monthly subscriptions. Not surveillance.

Whatever you do, don't use Gmail for email.

• Web: fastmail.com
