Notion, the productivity suite, has announced the acquisition of Skiff, a platform lauded for its commitment to privacy through end-to-end encryption in file storage, documents, calendar events, and email services. This acquisition marks a significant step in Notion’s expansion, following the launch of a new calendar, based on its previous acquisition of Cron.

Skiff, founded in 2020 by Andrew Milich and Jason Ginsberg, has quickly made a name for itself in the tech world for being a private, encrypted alternative to the likes of Gmail and Google’s suite of document sharing and collaboration tools.

Users are being provided with options to export or migrate their data to other services.

This acquisition follows Notion’s previous strategic moves, including the purchase of workflow management tool Flowdash in 2022 and the acquisition of Cron and India-based
