  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.

      • "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?

        • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                    • Data storage space

                      People use Google drive, Dropbox or other cloud services to store their data. It would be great to have ProtonMail not only for mail but also for storing data safely in the cloud. I don't see the difference between regular files and emails so for me and lots of people/companies it would make sense to have both under the same umbrella

                      • Block External Read Receipts (gmail, etc)

                        It would be nice to have the ability to block any read receipts from external email providers.

                        • Add a mastodon server

                          Mastodon, a free, open-source federated social network, based on the GNUsocial spec.

                          Mastodon's decentralized approach creates a social networking experience that pairs well with email, using the format `username@server.domain` for accounts.

                          One of the primary concerns about adoption in Mastodon is that the operator of a server has access to user's private data; this seems like a good opportunity for Protonmail to extend the abilities provided under the blanket of customer trust already established, to create a *secure* endpoint for the social media network.

                          Also, I'd like nothing better than for my Mastodon handle to be, simply, my…

                            • 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…
