Hey everyone 👋
The idea behind Canary is simple – to be Signal for email, ie, a privacy-friendly alternative to your favorite email app, that offers a simple design and powerful feature-set.
Let’s dig a little deeper. First, what exactly do we mean by privacy-friendly?
🔐 Easy-to-use end-to-end encryption (PGP / OpenPGP / GPG compatible)
📱 Local database encryption
👉 Biometric app lock
🔔 Option to choose between instant server-based Push or secure on-device Fetch notifications
📂 Built using open source libraries wherever possible, including for encryption (Bouncy Castle) and email sync (JavaMail + MailCore2)
☁️ Minimal server footprint for opt-in features
🚫 No ads and no data-mining
That’s a top-tier security suite. But don’t worry, this is not some spartan app that’s clunky to use. With Canary you’ll get:
✅ Read receipts
👎 Newsletter management & one-click unsubscribe
💌 Gmail categories
👩❤️👨 Contact profiles
📆 In-app calendar (coming soon)
📄 Reusable mail templates
🧹 Inbox cleaner (just scroll to delete junk)
📲 Familiar, native, intuitive design so there’s no learning curve
And much more. All underpinned by top-notch engineering:
💯 Canary is 100% native – no slow, buggy, cross-platform web tech
👌 Optimized for low-bandwidth and minimal on-device storage use
🚀 Snappy in-app experience – email loading, sending, search, etc
Canary for macOS & iOS is regularly featured by Apple on the App Store and is available for a simple, one-time fee. No subscription.
Canary for Android is now in public beta and is FREE to use for PH users – just hit GET IT!
