No any changes to free Fossa Guard. We commit to support and enhance it in a way as before. We just added an option for some of you to use your own S/MIME certificates that are not somehow associated with a Fossa Certification Authorities. Both versions, Fossa Guard and Fossa Guard Pro, are available in Google Chrome Store:
However, we need to support our software and hardware infrastructure for our free users so they can continue using free secure e-mailing service as before. The price for a Fossa Guard Pro version is set to be only 1.99$ per month.
Going into details, with Fossa Guard Pro version you will have following benefits and features:
- Your own S/MIME certificate, either created by you (e.g. self-signed) or signed by any trusted Certification Authority. Such certificate might be used to do all regular stuff, like e-mail signing or encrypting. This is achieved by importing of the PKCS#12 archive into Fossa Guard Pro. As usual, only you own private key, Fossa Guard Pro never sends your private key to any Internet server.
- Your e-mail account that is not used to authenticate to Google services. If you own your own business with a separate e-mailing infrastructure or just want to send e-mails from an account different to Google, you are free to choose that while composing a new signed or encrypted e-mail. Just notice that such e-mail account must be present in your S/MIME certificate.
