Safe email made simple - Mynigma

About Mynigma

Our story

Mynigma is the brainchild of three Berlin-based mathematicians.

We are too young to have personally experienced East German surveillance, but the memory of an oppressive regime putting its own security above its people still lives on in the German psyche. It serves as a stark reminder that privacy is a cornerstone of democracy and that without it, a dystopian state is more than a theoretical possibility.

In summer 2012, frustration over the low adoption of complicated email encryption programs like PGP sparked the development of an email app in which encryption is not an afterthought, but a central feature enabled by default. Since then, the Snowden revelations have done their bit to raise awareness of mass surveillance and privacy concerns.

Meanwhile, the program has matured into an app for Mac and iOS, as well as an Outlook plugin. Thanks to your feedback, it becomes a little more stable, usable and functional every day. Many more great features are in the pipeline, as are versions for Android and other platforms.

Our mission is important to us and we don’t want it to be threatened or diluted by the pursuit of short-term profit. We have no investors and are funded entirely through business licences, donations, prize money, grants and part-time jobs for other companies. This allows us to give the personal use version of Mynigma away for free. No advertising, no data collection, no upgrade features. Just free.

If you would like to help us make encryption the new normal, please visit our donations page, recommend us to your friends, and rate us in the app store. We are very grateful for your support.

Profund

We receive tremendous support from Profund Innovation, the startup service of Freie Universität Berlin. Our adviser is Prof Volker Roth, whose research on security and usability engineering of email clients has proved invaluable in elevating our security mechanisms to the cutting edge of scientific knowledge.

Berlin

The place

We are located in Berlin, a city which like no other has witnessed the contrast between a free society and a state that placed its own interests above those of its citizens.
We don't think this is right. Protecting emails from unwarranted access is one way of making our voice heard.

Thank you

You

Being such a small team, we are always looking for help. At the moment we have to keep our part-time jobs, which allow us to pay the bills while working on Mynigma. If you think you could support us in any way, please get in touch.
We are also looking for programmers who can help us improve Mynigma and take it to more platforms.
