MF blog SSL certificate

A modern browser should automatically check the validity of the Mailfence blog SSL/TLS certificate and alert you if it detects something untrustworthy.  For security conscious users who want to manually check, our blog SSL/TLS certificate fingerprints/thumbprints (valid until 19/Nov/‎2019) are:

SHA1 fingerprint:

D9:58:C1:6D:3B:A3:19:61:EC:98:1E:0B:65:92:3A:F7:9E:92:35:7A

SHA-256 fingerprint:

5B:BD:DA:1E:B1:F7:E7:F7:45:14:BE:B0:6A:80:F1:45:E6:BF:53:B8:64:7A:5F:2A:D4:BE:65:3A:AB:9F:8C:95

If this matches what you see in your browser, then you know you are communicating with the real Mailfence blog website and using the correct public key to encrypt your sensitive information and only Mailfence blog can decrypt it.
