"Dashing," secure, and privacy-friendly

The Skiff Mail review covered account setup and basic usage, including user onboarding, composing messages, setting up the mobile app, and security settings. Security settings highlighted include -
  • Blocking remote content - which can stop all email tracking, including open detection
  • Two-factor authentication - including one-time passwords (OTP) and hardware keys, like a Yubikey
  • Verification phrases - a mnemonic phrase that allows Skiff users to identify each other
Additional privacy-protecting features include the ability to add crypto wallets as email aliases; for example, if you generate a new wallet that you want to use for a single transaction or owning one asset, you can connect it to Skiff for use as a communication method.

Switching to Skiff Mail

It’s FOSS moved on to cover switching to Skiff and taking advantage of the full privacy-first workspace.Skiff offers numerous import options, including one-click import from Gmail and Outlook or file-based import options for EML and MBOX files. You can also easily port over a custom domain, with Skiff as one of the only providers allowing a custom domain on the free tier.

More than private email

It’s FOSS spent some time covering Skiff’s other products, including Calendar, Pages, and Drive - which are all end-to-end encrypted and privacy-first. With an entire privacy-first ecosystem at your disposal, shifting to a product that is secure and easy to use has never been easier.
