Skiff mail can be trusted?

I saw skiff mail on twitter. Did anyone used it. 10GB is free cloud storage. I saw on their website. How they are giving 10 gb for free ? Is that service really secure and private ?

I swear you wrote my exact thoughts!
I made an account w them a few months ago because their UI is pretty and then I forgot about it.

10GB free, i got an update yesterday that you can use 1 custom domain for emailing for free as well.
Insane amount of free stuff for a supposedly “private” company.

I really don’t understand their business model and that combined with the crypto crap and being an American company, I’d never use it for anything important.

I’ve personally never used them, as they’re relatively new. Though, I’ve been intrigued for awhile, and willing to give them a shot.

From what I’ve seen:

  1. They USED TO have a Privacy Policy that disclosed data sharing. This was later removed, when called out on Reddit.
  2. I’ve seen Andrew Milich (one of their founders) on social media a lot, answering questions, and helping when he can.
  3. They’ve released a whitepaper detailing security practices, and seem to be active in the open source community.
  4. They’ve been audited.
  5. Some of it is Open Source (just UI and Client, not server).

Right now they seem to be on the right track. I’m just waiting for the platform to be more mature, for any spots to reveal their ugly head. Skiff, as a brand, is still very new.

Just checked out their site.
Hey, it’s a free tool. I’ll probably use it for unimportant things.
Thanks for the tip.

I also use skiff as wall it was so far a great service but I agree with the crypto nonsense and the fact that it’s not fully open source but that 10 GB is better than nothing hope they support pgp in the future
