  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.

    • Pivx coin payment

      PIVX ( Private Instant Verified Transaction ) is a cryptocurrency that prioritizes privacy and decentralized governance. As of 10/16/2017 they will have implemented the Zerocoin protocol to anonymize transactions. The mission ( and the color scheme of purple ) of Pivx and Protonmail align and I'd love to see Proton mail implement a PIVX payment option. For more information on Pivx, please visit pivx.org.

            • 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.

              • Button to record audio message (recording vocal audio like in instant chat apps)

                It could be faster then using a program on your local desktop to record your voice vocal audio an then attaching it to the mail (as a normal attachment).

                • 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.

                  • make protonmail faster

                    Search is slow
                    Deleting multiple (15+) emails is slow
                    Emptying the trash is slow

                    This service is so slow that I'd rather just let the NSA read my email

                    • One Off Purchase. 100 Euro for Plus, 200 Euro for Pro. Lifetime Subscription?

                      I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I like to keep my number of subscriptions minimal. It's just healthy. Basically. I would pay a good amount to get a lifetime subscription on plus / pro. Thoughts?

                        Please consider altering that policy. Three months is way too short a time!

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

                        • Protonmail App for Android is Very Slow

                          Hello Protons,

                          I use Proton mail as my central and master repository for all email correspondence (paid-up). However I'm finding its slow performance in android is really killing my productivity and my frustration is at breaking point; now looking to find alternatives.

                          I understand that a full encrypted service such as protonmail may never achieve the same level of responsiveness as other apps like Gmail, however there is a limit at which no longer becomes usable.

                          I find the app to be excessively laggy, I wait for actions to respond, by which time I've moved on elsewhere in the app…

                                    Allow us to provide public keys for our contacts, letting us encrypt emails to people without using protonmail "secure" email with password.

                                    Additionally offer search functionality for one of the well known keystores (MIT, etc) to find public keys for people you're sending emails to.

                                      user@protonmail.com is too long

                                        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.
