WhatsApp, Facebook Messanger, SMS, etc, there are many ways of contacting someone today. But still, Email Messaging is a professional way for businesses and officials to send messages.
So, why is that? Email is the professional way because it looks and feels professional. And the other reason is privacy. Emailing was meant to be secured, hence their popularity with businesses.
But, are they as secure as they were before? I’d say no. The word ‘Privacy’ is a big lie told by big email service providers like Gmail. Is this the end of secure emailing services? I’d again say no. Letter is here to save it!
Letter is a fantastic email service provider founded by a 26-year-old IIT Guwahati student Sunit Nandi. According to Sunit, these email service providers like Gmail, trade our personal emails to businesses.
They not only harm our privacy but also use our messages without even letting us know. To dig deeper into this issue and to know more about this Secure Email Service Provider, Letter, we had a talk with Sunit Nandi to understand more about his journey.
Sunit Nandi’s Journey From A College Student To An Entrepreneur:
Sunit as a college student used to run an online magazine. In 2012 when he was 18 years old, he started his online magazine named TechnoFAQ. His magazine covered topics in technology, science, computing, education, and business.
As Sunit mentions, it used to take all his free time back in his college days. He used to spend all his day finding topics and writing articles. His patience and hard work paid off, by 2014 his magazine started to reach enough people to let him generate revenue through advertising campaigns.
Many businesses reached out to him to increase their publicity and sales. By 2019 he started to earn more profit from his magazine. Now, he started to reinvest his profits on more websites.
He acquired Tekh Decoded and LinuxBin (now nixFAQ), focusing on consumer electronics and Unix-family OS respectively.
After he had a small team of 5 members, he had some more free time. This is when he started working on what he truly wanted, developing a privacy-oriented email service for public use.
What Fueled Sunit’s Passion To Create His Own Email Service?
While he was working on his business, the magazines, he was aware of the privacy issues of emailing nowadays and was very much frustrated.
He decided to self-host his emails and kept improving the performance and security. He also complained about the lack of some vital features like calendar, contact-sync, and search functionalities in most of the email service providers.
So, that’s it! The problems he faced, gave him an understanding of people’s problems. He saw these problems as an opportunity.
And as he used to self-host his own emails, he had a very clear idea about how to provide secure email service efficiently. Thanks to all he learned over the years solving his own problems, now he’s on the way to help millions with his email service.
How Letter is Different Than Other Emailing Services?
After figuring out the ways to provide a secure emailing service with an interface that has all the necessary features, he and his team got excited. That when they started working on Letter.
They turned their own, personal emailing service into a publicly used privacy-oriented emailing service.
No one but only you can read your emails hosted on Letter. Along with the security encryption on emails, Sunit has also applied another layer of encryption that makes your emails more secure and protects them against cyberattacks.
Letter is now available to the Indian public and businesses at a very affordable price. At least you can give it a try! The future of secure emailing is here!
