vivaldi pgp e-mail

Vivaldi (the browser people) gives free e-mail with a generous 5 gigs and PGP encryption. I didn’t know about the encryption. Nice to have something that’s not Protonmail.

Free e-mail isn’t a high need for most people, but this is ad free, no snoop, and geeked out with PGP crypto.

  1. Belatedly, are you on Vivaldi? I’ve been thinking to make an account, because I could use a free webmail service to replace Yahoo, but I’m loathe to get on yet another social network without a real need or at least knowing anyone there.

    • Yes, I have a Vivaldi account primarily for the e-mail and browser sync. I don’t participate in the forums except to sometimes look for some solution there. You also get a WordPress-powered blog, but I’m not interested in it because I post elsewhere. I’ll make a post once every few months just to show activity. I don’t think you have to activate the blog.

      I’m impressed with the Vivaldi e-mail. 5 gigs. Where I actually have a paid service, I’m still under 1.5 gig, and that includes all the e-mail from my desktop for over 15 years, plus importing from a few other side accounts I had. It doesn’t include my gmail, which I let run heavy and am not careful with it at all. It’s my “I don’t give a damn” account, lol.

      Vivaldi account looks easy to delete if you don’t want it. Longevity of the provider is always a concern, and Vivaldi has enough to where I would go with it. If they did decide one day to get out of it, I’m guessing they have enough of a human element there to give long notice or make other arrangements for the users.

      If I didn’t already have paid domain e-mail, I would go with it. Lots of nice short usernames are still available. I’ll privately send you my username (i.e. e-mail address) in case you need somebody to test out the PGP, etc.
