Exploring Canary Mail’s SecureSend and Other Privacy-Focused Features

I’ve been working with Canary Mail over the last few weeks to better secure my email workflow. Canary recently debuted SecureSend, a smart encryption feature that secures your email and attached files. SecureSend also has revocation features, enabling you to revoke access to an email or attached files after a certain amount of time, or if the email security has been breached.

We previously looked at Canary Mail as part of our look at the best email apps for iPhone and iPad and Mac. Canary Mail of course made that list, but SecureSend is a new feature that may well put the app at the top of the list for those folks looking for a more secure way to send email.

Inside My Personal System for Focus (TSS June Webinar) »

Personal Focus Systems

Here’s the challenge: Focus consists of two equally important parts: (1) Clarity and (2) Action.

You need both or else it doesn’t work.

  1. Clarity is where you’re going.
  2. Action is how you’re getting there.

Perhaps you you have one of these, but you lack the other. Or, like so many folks I talk to, you may be struggling to figure out both of them.

That’s why I’m hosting a free class on this coming Tuesday, June 7:

The New Productivity Assessment »

So much productivity advice focuses on stuff you don’t need.

Over the years we’ve discovered that there are four main obstacles people face when it comes to being focused and productive.

But…! The symptoms of these obstacles often look similar.

That’s why folks will try a new productivity approach, but they are merely treating a symptom and not the actual problem. Thus… no real progress or momentum is made. Ugh!

This is why we have developed the all-new Focus Quiz.

This FREE assessment will help diagnose your biggest obstacle to focus right now and help you find out how to solve it.
