        I am with the others here. I am reluctant to switch to Protonmail completely because of the teeny weeny little fonts with the micro midget characters. I can't understand why you did not implement such a simple feature like font sizing.

        Having a very difficult time using ProtonMail on Android due to the small font size. Please add an option to let us increase the font size inside the Mobile App.

        I am reluctant to upgrade to a paid ProtonMail account because of the small font size in the Android app. When will an option for larger fonts be implemented within the app?

        I just started using the ProtonMail Android app and the font size is a killer.

        There really needs to be a setting for larger font size and pinch to zoom on any email.

        And changing the system font and or display size just to fix this one app is not an acceptable solution.

        On Android 7.1.2, ProtonMail App version 1.9.2, you can change the font size of an E-mail by changing the display size in the Settings App, in most cases.

        Zooming on Android enlarges the font, but the screen doesn't redraw, so the text runs off the screen.

        Mobile app fonts are super small compared to the fonts in all of my other mobile apps.

        Yes, I think it's necessary to consider the needs of persons with relative disabilities, including the decline in vision that comes with aging.

        The more you use the technologies, the more you become dumber.
        You can simply CTRL + zoom (with the mouse scroller) or +/- on your keyboard, or use the zoom in your browser...

        I use the mobile app exclusively and I agree that some larger font options would be extremely appreciated!

        For those interested: you can change the default email font-size by copy/pasting the following css-code to Settings > Appearance > Custom Theme:

        #conversation-view .message .frame {
        font-size: 20px;
        }

        Hit the save-button and it should work! You can change the size to your wishes.

        Geezer here: those of us over 40 generally are becoming progressively nearsighted, unfortunately.
        Lots of "reader" eyeglasses being sold everywhere, proving the demographic need.
        It would help...

        I agree, having the option to increase the font size when reading e-mails (Small, Regular, Large) would be extremely appreciated. I read and write tiny font all the time but I find the tininess of the default ProtonMail font size when reading e-mails to be an eye-strain.
