Apple Includes Encrypted Email Service Skiff as Default App on iOS Devices
Apple has taken a significant step toward prioritizing user privacy by including the encrypted email service Skiff among the default email options on all iOS devices. While this addition does not replace Apple Mail entirely, it represents a notable development for secure email services aiming to encourage more users to switch from mainstream apps offered by big tech companies.
Skiff, founded by CEO Andrew Milich and CTO Jason Ginsberg in 2020, is built on the principle that privacy should be the default setting for online communication. The platform offers users greater control over the information they share by adopting a zero-trust privacy approach. Skiff does not store or collect sensitive user data, and everything is end-to-end encrypted and open-sourced.
