Comodo's Free Email Certificates Protect Email for Private Users

Email certificates enable senders to keep emails private

When New York jeweler Harry Winston donated the famous Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian Institution, he shipped the 45.52-carat gem via US mail. Email users need to be warier than Winston. Unlike rocks, email messages scatter into tiny digital signals bouncing from computer to computer, owned and operated by different companies. Anyone along the way can imperceptibly alter or even destroy these messages. That's why Comodo provides free personal email certificates for private email users, to allow them to entrust their valuable information to their email services.

Once email users understand how insecure messages they send via regular email are, they have two choices. First, they can refuse to send emails that contain information they would not want strangers to read. Such information may include banking information and government identity numbers. Or, second, they can learn how to scramble the contents of their messages, so that only they and their intended recipients can read and understand them.

Email users scramble their messages using "encryption" software built into many email programs. Once it is encrypted, the message is not readable by anyone but the sender and the intended recipient.

Encryption software requires a small computer file called a "digital certificate." Businesses that value the speed of email and the confidentiality of encryption provide digital certificates to employees for their email communications. Home email users may want to enjoy the same privacy, but for those on a limited budget, the typical cost of $19.95 a year may be a strain.

In order to create trust online, Comodo provides free SSL certificates for private users at www.comodo.com/home/free/free-protection.php. The free email certificates complement other Comodo products, such as their security products for online businesses, and award-winning desktop security software.

With free Comodo email certificates, Internet users can take advantage of both the speed of email and the security of digital encryption. They can entrust their valuable information to their email services as confidently as Winston did the US postal service.
