Canary Mail aims to do for secure email what Tesla has done for electric cars

Canary’s stunning new email app makes cutting-edge email encryption as easy and hassle-free as it is in modern chat apps, such as WhatsApp. Just like WhatsApp, Canary automates the key exchange needed for end-to-end encryption. The email is encrypted on the sender’s device and decrypted on the recipient’s device, using keys that only they possess. At no point in the middle is the email in plain-text, so even if the email account were to be hacked, all that the attacker would see is garbled text. This also prevents major email providers from scanning full email text for targeted ad delivery.
