Transparency Report and Warrant Canary

In light of our attachment to online privacy – we would like to present our Transparency report and Warrant canary in order to inform about legal requests for information of our users.

To date, Mailfence has

  • received requests for user identification in 5 cases.
  • provided user identification because of a valid Belgium court order in 4 cases.

Last updated: Sunday, 1st of January 2017 (this information will be updated every half year)
Next update date: Tuesday, 1st of August 2017

We only release user identification if we receive a valid Belgium court order.

Warrant Canary

To be counted for us as a request for information, the request must come through a legal channel (with and only with a Belgian court. We do not count unofficial requests which are always rejected). Legally binding requests are ones from the Belgian courts that we are legally obligated to comply with.
