  1. ProtonMail Bridge for Linux

    I don't have a Windows or OSX machine, so ProtonMail Bridge doesn't appear to be an option for me. Is there any way Bridge for Linux could happen? The site says it's coming soon, but when is soon?

    • Have multiple inboxes under one account.

      As a protonmail+ user using a custom domain I shouldn't have to use a filter to have my custom domain emails show up in my main inbox. I would suggest having multiple inboxes under 1 account. What I mean is you sign in with your email and you have an inbox for name@protonmail.com, another mailbox for a@domain.tld, and another for b@domain.tld . Under each of these inboxes they can all have their own spam and archive folders and whatnot. This would be much nicer, but for some users as well who prefer a unified inbox protonmail could automatically…

      • 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?

        • automatic VPN kill switch to interupt up/download when VPN is disconnected.

          When your VPN disconnects, it should also interupt the Internet connection so that active downloads or uploads are interrupted. Currently when the VPN is disrupted... my computer continues run with my information in the open without encryption. This is a serious breach of security.

          • 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.

                  • When attaching pictures, give a choice of file size

                    Whenever I attach a photo from my iPhone, it becomes over 2MB. I appreciate that the encryption increases the file size, but if I could choose a lower-res version to then be encrypted it would be much better. Some recipients reject any attachment over 1MB.
                    Thanks very much

                      • Left to Right Swipe Feature

                        This is for the mobile app. I accidentally swiped from left to right and deleted an important e-mail. The "undo" popup lasted half a second which is way too short. I went into the settings to hopefully disable the swiping function. There were options to change what it does but no option to disable it. Therfore, please 1) make the undo popup last longer and 2) allow the ability to disable the swipe functions.

                            A very large number of people is afraid of using credit card on the internet. I know. I am one of them. I will gladly pay for this great service that ProtonMail is providing butt without using credit or debit card. So if there is a way for this feature to be posbille count on me to be a paid user.

                              • make it completely private

                                when registering with proton mail for the first time , it asks for the phone number which makes the users skeptical about whether its gonna be kept by you or not. there are many friends of mine who are not registering with you because you ask for the phone number to send the otp. I suggest you to send the otp to any temporary email id so that each user will be rest assured for his privacy. I know that you say that you dont store phone number but users are really very skeptical about it.

                                  Some e-mails that are not conversations are grouped together, specifically e-mails that have the same subject and sender every time, such as a Paypal receipt or a google alert. It would be great to have this automatically recognized, or have an option to flag that some e-mails are not conversations.

                                      • More Domains and More email addresses per domain

                                        The Professional version, even more expensive than the basic subscription is far too expensive to be allowed only two domains and 5 email addresses per domain. There should be up to 5 domains for this price and 20 addresses per domain.
