  1. *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,…

    • 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.

      • "Accounts that are inactive for over 3 months may be automatically deleted." Please consider altering that policy.

        "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?

          • 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…

            • Multi-User support for PLUS subscription

              I have a PLUS subscription with a custom domain for my 5 family members. I would like them to gain access to their email separately, but from what I understand this requires a visionary subscription. I would like to have this feature included in the PLUS subscription for up to 5 users (same number of users as email addresses).

                Gmail has this feature where we can see if it's secure or not.

                  • Stop using JAVascript for your new onion link. JavaScript undermines the anonymity of TOR

                    The name says it all really, stop using JavaScript for the onion site as it can completely undermine the security The Tor Project provides, I know for a fact there's a community that wouldn't use it due to that.

                    • 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.

                          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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                                  • Choose the language for "Protonmail encrypted email notification" for external users when sending a message

                                    Many external users don't speak or understand english, so when they receive the Protonmail encrypted email notification, many of them are tempted to ignore it.
                                    I'm a french guy, and most of my contacts don't speak english, so even "decrypt" (in fact, translate) the english email notification is difficult for them !
                                    Same thing for the "online" message, once recipient has entered the password to access the message, the web page containing the message is in english, it would be great that this page appears in the language selected at the moment the message was sent.
                                    ... because using Protonmail…

                                      • No Data Retention, no logs, and more transparency.

                                        Things that should have been here.

                                        These things should already be in place and not be something on demand.

                                        Protonmail has an easier to use interface, but that does not mean it's not as accurate in privacy as it should be.

                                        • Option to permanently delete private keys

                                          Provide an option to permanently remove/delete inactive (therefore actually unusable, in case of forgotten password) private keys from the list in the account settings to avoid cluttering.
