  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.

        • 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?

            • Please Enrich the Text Editor! It's almost 2018 :)

              The text editor for composing emails is VERY poor. It lacks many features that other email providers offer, such as: font type/family, font size, font color, text highlight, indent, inserting quotations, special characters, remove link, undo/redo and (god forbid!) some smilies/emoticons...

                • 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.

                  • 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,…

                                  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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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…
