  1. XRB Raiblocks/Nano payment option!

    Add Rai (soon Nano) as a payment option. Bitcoin transactions fees are now too much, and it may take up to a few hours for a transaction to be confirmed. Unlike BTC there are NO fees for Rai, and transactions are nearly instant!

  2. ProtonVault

    How about a service like LastPass or 1Password to make it easy to store all passwords and secure notes either online and synced with other computers and devices, or locally on one device. A secure password manager using the best of ProtonMail/ProtonVPN services

  3. Schedule Send Date/Time for Draft Emails Automatically Sent at a Future Time

    I have another email service that allows users to schedule draft emails to be sent at a specified date/time in the future. Once the draft is complete, the email is automatically sent at the future specified date/time, unless that draft email is deleted/replaced prior to the send date/time. The draft email can either reside in an existing "draft" folder or a separate "outbox" folder (as distinguished from "draft" that does not have a scheduled send date/time).

    Different Emphasis from Similar Postings:
    I noticed a number of other similar postings, however, I wanted to provide this new posting to possibly emphasize…

  4. *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,…

  5. Accept Monero payments for Protonmail Plus and Visionary upgrades

    Please accept Monero payments for Protonmail Plus and Visionary upgrades. Monero (XMR) is the most secure, private and untraceable currency available today. Many Monero users are longtime supporters of ProtonMail and would like payment privacy when upgrading their email account or making a donations.

  7. Ability to use keybase.io keys for PGP mail

    Many people have keybase.io accounts and already use those keys for encrypted mail. It would be lovely to have a feature that allows you to pull in those keys for sending encrypted mail through Protonmail.

  8. Encryption of all metadata

    If Protonmail is to be serious about privacy, I don't understand why all metadata isn't kept solely in encrypted form. I just signed up for Scryptmail and any data is kept in encrypted form, unreadable for any third party.

    I don't see why it would be necessary to keep for instance the senders or subject titles in encrypted form when Protonmail doesn't support POP3 or IMAP.

    The problem is that otherwise e-mail is inherently insecure, because if for instance a governmental entity wants to see your account, while they won't have access to the content of your e-mails, they can…

    We have given this quite a bit of thought, but at the present moment, it is not clear the advantages would outweigh the disadvantages.

    The biggest problem is search. Encrypting all metadata would break metadata search entirely on the web client as there is still no efficient way to handle search of encrypted data within a browser.

    Secondly, metadata encryption’s value from a privacy standpoint is also somewhat dubious. Because we ultimately must deliver the message to the recipient, we must know who the recipient is. At the current time, there still isn’t any proven and viable way to work around this.

    Metadata encryption is an area of continued research for us, and when the opportunity arises and the technology for doing this matures, we will definitely implement it in ProtonMail.

  9. Increased space (2GB) for FREE accounts

    I would like to have either 1 or 2 GB of storage space for the Free Account!

  10. Add security questions

    You can add security questions on resetting password - after clicking link sent to recovery email, before you can enter new password, you should answer two (or three) security questions.

    This will be additional security for resetting password.

  11. "Keep me logged in" option

    I really like ProtonMail and use it as my primary mailing service. But one of the most tedious things about it is having to enter the two passwords every time i want to check my e-mail.

    ProtonMail keeps logging me out after a few seconds/minutes of closing its tab, so i now have to keep a tab open in order to continuously check my e-mail. Furthermore, i'm using long passwords (in conjunction with Keepass) for more security, so it's not easy to type my passwords every few minutes.

    I use ProtonMail on my desktop home computer, so there's no danger…

  13. Put a country flag in security log entries

    The security log fails to give the user a clear idea of who logged in. Just by the time and some ip adress it's difficult to distinguish me from a hacker.
    Therefore, I propose there is a country flag in the security log entries. This way I can just take a quick look at the logs and if somehow someone in say cuba, china, russia whatever logged in, I know for sure that wasn't me.
    Now obviously a hacker would use Tor or some other form of proxy but that proxy would still most likely be located in some other…

  14. snooze and send later

    in gmail some extensions let you snooze a received email (it comes back to inbox at a certain date), or send it later (it creates an outbox folder or label). would you include that?

  15. Mobile app for Jolla's Sailfish OS

    Hi,

    Protonmail is a great service, but protecting your emails is still not enough to guarantee privacy. Considering that Google openly admits it is capitalizing on all the data stored in our Android devices, and that Apple or BlackBerry simply do not communicate on the data that they collect, protecting our privacy will require more than encrypted emails.

    A new smartphone software company focused on software has been launched by former Nokia employees: Jolla (http://jolla.com/). It is focused on data privacy, and wishes to become an alternative to Android. It has already shipped a smartphone and a tablet.

  16. 1 click logout button

    Currently it takes 2 clicks to logout of Protonmail. There's no reason for this, 1 is plenty enough. We should have a logout button on top: 1 click and you're out. Simple and fast, that's how it should always be.
