Posteo is an email service provider based in Berlin, Germany, offering paid email accounts for individuals and businesses. The service gained prominence during the aftermath of the post-2013 global surveillance disclosures,[1][2] especially for its high standard security features and relative anonymity as it does not require any private information in the registration process.[1]

Posteo offers support for DNSSEC/DANE and PGP (through Mailvelope in the web interface, which is running Roundcube). Additionally they offer two-factor-authentication via TOTP and use Extended Validation certificates and HPKP for the HTTPS connection.

In 2020, Posteo had approximately 425,000 active mail accounts.[3]
