Introducing Mailfence Calendar: a secure online calendar to schedule, manage and track meetings & events
Mailfence strives to make the internet a safer place. That’s why we developed our encrypted email solution. But in our opinion just offering secure and private email is not sufficient. Otherwise, our users would need to use insecure solutions to manage their appointments, create and store their documents or chat online. Luckily Mailfence is much more than a secure email. Mailfence allows you to organize your life through powerful productivity tools such as Mailfence Calendar, Mailfence Documents, Mailfence Contacts, Mailfence Groups, Mailfence Chat and Mailfence Polls. Therefore, in this post, you will discover how to schedule, manage, and track meetings & events with Mailfence secure calendar.
