Ars Technic article A mobile app in Germany has created a new way for users to easily send and receive emails from their email address.
Users of the eMail app for iOS and Android have the option to signup for a private, encrypted email account, and they’re required to register a unique code.
In other words, they’re asking for a password.
The app uses a “secret” method to sign you up, so it can’t be easily cracked.
However, this privacy-invading technique could have serious security implications for email apps.
“It’s not really encrypted, and if it was, we wouldn’t have this feature,” said Martin Schmidhuber, the founder of eMail, in an interview with Ars Technico.
“It’s really hard to do something like this with regular email.”
This new feature was introduced in a recent update to the app.
“The eMail API will not be changed, but the encryption feature will be updated,” Schmidhuhber said.
“All the users can opt in to this feature if they want, but I don’t want to disclose the private encryption.”
There are a number of ways to encrypt an email, and the app uses one of the most common methods.
“With this new feature, we’ll be able to send your emails with a different signature from a user than an attacker can do with the normal method,” Schmoerhuber said, which is why he’s concerned.
If the user’s email address changes, then they can’t send messages to you.
If you want to send messages, you’ll need to change your password.
And, because the app isn’t encrypted, it’s possible for someone to intercept your messages.
It’s unclear whether the app will be used for nefarious purposes, such as selling ad space.
If it’s used for legitimate purposes, it could help protect users.
However the app is not available for the general public.
There’s no way to use it for non-secure purposes, and it’s not clear if the app could be cracked in the future.
It’s a good idea to have a password and an email address that are secure, Schmober said in an e-mail to Ars Technick.
“But if you have a security weakness, and you want your email account to be public, you should change your username and password and use the private eMail account instead,” he said.
