  1. Litecoin Payment

    Please accept Litecoin as a payment method for premium accounts and donations. While Bitcoin is a great investment asset, for normal low level payments below multiple-thousand level, Litecoin is much better. Bitcoin transaction fees are already around $5. Currently Litecoin fees are around $0.05 or 5 cents. Even the advent of lightning networks on Bitcoin will not make Bitcoin cheaper since Litecoin will also have Lightning network payments and channel costs will be 100x more expensive on Bitcoin.

    • Bitcoin Cash Payment Option!

      Bitcoin transactions fees are now too much, and it may take up to a few hours for a transaction to be confirmed. There's a payment system, which is nearly same of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash. Its devs have a better vision "low fees, 1 block (10 minutes) transaction confirm time." If you haven't heard of it, here (https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/a/58969/38618) you can see that many wallets support it.

      Kind regards.

      • Only allow login with the username/main address, not with every address.

        Do not allow that you can log into the account with every address.

        If my account name is john.smith then only allow login with john.smith or john.smith@protonmail.com. Not with finance.john.smith@protonmail.com or any other address.

        Perfect would be if you would have the choice what address can be used in order to log into your account.

        With the current way you have to give away your login username in order to send emails. Hiding the username from the public would be an advantage, since they would have to guess your username and the password. Not only one of them.

          "Accounts that are inactive for over 3 months may be automatically deleted."
          Please consider altering that policy. Three months is way too short a time!

          Why not 1-2 or more years instead of 3 months?

          • Local currencies with country-based pricing

            It costs the average Russian nearly two day's wages to pay for ProtonMail Visionary. It costs the average German just over two hours.

            Average wages vary drastically throughout the world, which is why large international companies like Spotify accomodate poorer nations. The same Spotify premium plan is equiv to USD 18.42 in Denmark compared to USD 4.50 in Argentina. This opens up their market to a global audience who would otherwise be unable to afford their service.

            So what can we do to prevent someone in Switzerland paying for ProtonMail in Mexican Pesos?

            • Recycle usernames that were barely used/ created and deleted quickly

              Recycle usernames that were only used for a short period before being deleted.

              On a lot of websites common usernames are used up by people who sign up to try the service out and just delete the account.

              Please consider making these usernames available once again.

              • *Unlimited* Disposable Email Aliases

                Startmail explains it perfectly. They offer unlimited disposable aliases, which expire within a given amount of time. They also offer custom aliases which can be saved and used indefinitely.

                It is the disposable alias which will help protect privacy, when submiting an email to an untrusted recipient. After all, how much privacy do we have if our fixed emails become the foundation for building and selling our marketing profiles, just as is done by gmail. We limit personal activity virtual trails by disposing of aliases for casual uses. But, unlike custom aliases, which build on our identifiable original email address,…

                • Integration with Apple Mail on desktop and mobile

                  I love the idea of ProtonMail, and with the bridge, it works pretty well (albeit somewhat awkwardly) on desktop. On mobile the separate app works well. However this after-the-fact integration effort falls down when it comes to the sharing built into various apps. I can no longer easily email anything from another app on mobile, and have to find less convenient ways to share. I would love for you to partner with Apple to make this a truly seamless integration. Otherwise, I fear I'm headed back to Apple Mail soon.. thanks.

                  • Ability to choose which identity to keep when going back to a free plan.

                    Please add the feature to allow paid users to decide which identity they get to keep if they return to the free plan.

                    I signed up with a protonmail.ch address but found myself mostly giving people my protonmail.com address. I want to go back to a free plan now but not being able to change my primary identity to the .com address is a problem.

                    • X-notifier Script for ProtonMail for Firefox?

                      X-notifier is a Firefox plugin that alerts you to new email arrivals in multiple webmail accounts. The plugin already works with many popular webmail services. For new email services, an additional script must be made.

                      This is the X-notifier Firefox plugin page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/xnotifier/

                      This is the current list of addon scripts: http://xnotifier.tobwithu.com/scripts.php

                      This is the request page for a ProtonMail script to be added to X-notifier: http://xnotifier.tobwithu.com/dp/node/3407

                      Could ProtonMail staff collaborate on creating a script?

                      Or could someone reading this with the ability to create scripts help make one to add functionality for ProtonMail?

                      This would also help those interested…

                          • Yubikey as a second factor authentification

                            That would be good to integrate a protection with Yubikey for the 2 factor authentification. https://www.yubico.com/
                            Google already uses this feature for the mailbox. Facebook also accepts yubikey as the 2nd authentication factor.
                            I think that as a safety-conscious company, you should make your services compatible with yubikey.

                                    • Yubikey / FIDO U2F Support for Two Factor Authentication

                                      Although convenient, a cellular phone is not the most secure method of 2 Factor Authentication. Even more so, it is more likely to be stolen than a Physical 2 Factor device such as a Yubikey. I propose support for FIDO U2F which in turn would support physical 2 Factor devices that support this standard such as Yubikeys.

                                      Lastpass and Google both support these standards. If you truly want to become the encrypted version of Gmail as it has been said in the past, you need to be competitive with googles security standards.

                                      • Allow to use username other than an email address.

                                        f.e.

                                        email: support@protonmail.ch

                                        username: somerandomname
                                        password: somerandompass

                                        So it will be impossibile to login with email address.

                                        • Seperate passwords for Imap devices and assign specified addresses/domain/subdomain to devices

                                          If and when Proton can implement IMAP, have seperate passwords for assigned devices. Startmail has "Master lock", then assign device, assign password. It would be great to have if device was lost/stolen/comprimised. Then if needed you could deactivate device from main account. You should also have the option to assign selected addresses to device instead of allowing entire account.
