DALLAS, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Popular free email accounts from huge corporations such as Google, Yahoo and AOL are the biggest threat to personal privacy for most Americans, according to 1776Email.com. That's why the company has introduced a new email service that automatically encrypts the content of emails to ensure they are always secure, safe and private.
"Free email accounts aren't really free," said Clayton Hale, co-founder of 1776Email.com. "You pay for your 'free' email with your personal privacy. If you use Gmail, Google scans every email so it can learn the intimate details of your personal life. We think that's a violation of your 4th Amendment right to privacy, and we launched 1776 Email so Americans could begin to take back their privacy before it's too late."
Email sent using 1776 Email is safe from computer hackers, corporate scanners and the prying eyes of government agencies. Every email sent using 1776 Email is encrypted so it can't be read by hackers or profiteers. This state-of-the-art encryption is done automatically, so using 1776 Email is just as easy as using the most popular "free" email services. The added security provided by 1776 Email happens seamlessly with every email and requires no extra plug-ins or procedures.
"There's an ugly secret about Gmail, Yahoo, AOL and others that the giant Silicon Valley corporations won't tell you," said Hale. "That secret is their email services are a weak link in your online privacy. In an age when American freedoms are under attack like never before by cyber criminals, terrorists and even the Russian government, it should be a crime to make it easy to hack into the personal lives of American citizens."
According to Hale, unprotected emails are an easy way for hackers and criminals to steal private information such as account passwords and other details that make identity theft possible. Emails also reveal intimate details about private relationships and even the dates we will be away on vacation when our homes are unprotected, creating a potential security risk. 1776 Email was created to help "today's American patriots" fight back and control their private lives from government agencies, computer hackers and giant corporations.
1776 Email is designed for people who want to protect their online privacy but who don't want to be bothered with email encryption software. Tech-savvy computer programmers have known for years that emails are notoriously easy to intercept and read, so they routinely use encryption tools to keep their emails and other correspondence secure from prying eyes. But without the knowledge of computer coding and computer network protocols, it's difficult to use the tools available to ensure email security.
"We created 1776Email.com for people who want an easy-to-use way to keep their private lives private," said Hale. "If George Washington and Alexander Hamilton were alive today, they would be using 1776 Email—not Gmail."
A safe and secure account from 1776 Email costs $17.76 for six months of service. To sign up for a secure email account and select your personal email address, visit www.1776Email.com.
