I’ve just received the following from Encrypt.me.
Some changes are in store
" Allow me to Introduce… myself…
I’m Terry Myers and the new Encrypt.me General Manager.
Encrypt.me was recently acquired by j2 Global. As part of that acquisition, our team became the foundation of a new Consumer Privacy & Protection business within j2. This team’s mission is to empower a private, secure, and unrestricted internet globally.
To address any immediate concerns: there will be no price changes or changes to your service. Nick Nelson has been promoted to General Manager of the Consumer Privacy & Protection (called NetProtect) and Jacob Wall is now VP of Business Operations. I’ve had the pleasure of working with these guys, as well as Rob Walker, in past companies.
I’ve been a fan of Encrypt.me since it was Cloak. I encourage direct and honest feedback - replies to this email come directly to me, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Here’s some improvements to expect this summer:
- A clear no logging policy. We will retain only the data we absolutely have to and we will clearly communicate what we store and for how long
- Feature enhancements to Private End-points. Open source and hosted on-premise or on AWS
- iOS 13 specific features. The team was at WWDC this week! Look forward to cool stuff like Sign In with Apple, Dark mode, and backend optimizations taking advantage of new iOS 13 backend code
- New cities and regions for the Encrypt.me network - as an Ohio native, I look forward to additional local endpoints.
Finally, you’ll soon be able to submit product feature requests and upvote feature requests from other customers. Our team will use this tool to prioritize our development efforts, meaning you’ll be able to guide the direction of Encrypt.me.
Thanks again for your time and continued support of Encrypt.me. We truly appreciate it. I look forward to leading efforts to secure your privacy on the Internet.
