  1. Browser Quick Login with PIN

    I would like a similar experience in the browser that we have with the mobile app. Set an expiration where the user can still unlock quickly with PIN.

    A trusted computer browser stores the main logon cookie with no expiration. But this cookie only has an encrypted blob that cannot access the mailbox alone. The 2nd cookie set to expire in X minutes/hours must be combined with a user supplied PIN, and that will decrypt the non-expiring main cookie blob, which logs the user back into the mailbox.

    • Accept Bitcoin on the Lightning Network!

      The Lightning Network is in beta, but it allows for instant payments (no confirmations) and almost 0% fees, provided the user has a channel open. You already accept Bitcoin... and the Lightning Network is a major upgrade to way people will use BTC to make payments. If you do it soon, you will also get a P.R. boost, as it will inevitably be mentioned in the Bitcoin media.

      • SpamAssassin: set required level for each user separately

        It would be great if each user could modify the default level required in SpamAssassin (4) to another value (e.g. 5 if too many legitimate mails land in the spam folder).

        • I would be interested in paying for $25 per YEAR (not month) for Unlimited domains & UNLIMITED addresses.

          I would be interested in paying $25/YEAR for Unlimited domains and addresses.

          I use catch-all and have probably 5 trillion trillion trillion possibilities and am not interested in paying MONEY to use an email ONCE.

          I want to be able to RECEIVE AND SEND from ALL domains and all email aliases, unlimited possibilities for each domain, and I have a lot of domains.

          PRESENTLY I GET ALL OF THIS 100% FOR FREE WITH GOOGLE APPS and I am unlimited grandfathered in forever. It allows 100 maximum SEND FROM emails, when I use them all I will just remove some I…

          • SpamAssassin: default required value for all users

            As long as my other idea (https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-feedback/suggestions/34132327-spamassassin-set-required-level-for-each-user-sep) is not yet implemented:
            Set required level in SpamAssassin more conservatively as suggested by SpamAssassin:
            https://spamassassin.apache.org/full/3.1.x/doc/Mail_SpamAssassin_Conf.html#user_preferences
            Default (for single-user setup) is 5 - for ISPs they suggest that "you should probably set the default to be more conservative, like 8.0 or 10.0". ProtonMail sets the value to 4 for all users! That is too low!

                • 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…

                    • Remove reliance on Google Cloud Messaging (GCM)

                      Use Pushy instead of GCM (for one example). It is a replacement for GCM but each app developer must manually embed Pushy in their apps. Pushy cannot itself be flashed onto a non-GMS phone to replace GCM.

                      Protonmail app development should support devices without GMS, you can embed the Pushy SDK in your app and it will work on these devices, instead of using GCM.

                      I think there is a growing market for people who do not want to use Google services at all. This one change would also be innocuous to those with Google services installed while giving "unGoogled"…

                          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?

                              • Password Protected ProtonMail Bridge

                                ProntonMail Bridge needs to be protected by password. As anyone who uses the pc, can easily see the mailbox username and password in the bridge. Unless the user remember to logout from the bridge properly each time after used, else the bridge will remember the login credential forever. This is a serious security loophole. Especially for those who share their pc.

                                  • Dual Factor Authentication

                                    I value the addition of dual factor authentication, but I find it frustrating that I have to open an app on my phone and quickly type in the relevant 6 digits before the code refreshes.

                                    I have many such MFA apps on my phone, and my favourite by far is Microsoft Authenticator and LastPass Authenticator. The reason for this is that when I log in to ProtonMail, a push notification is sent to my phone and I simply have to press yes or no on the notification to allow or deny the login.

                                    This is a massive time saver and…

                                    • 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.

                                      • The must-have aliases (hostmaster, webmaster...)

                                        Each domain should have mandatory email addresses like postmaster, webmaster, hostmaster and abuse. At least by following the best practices. Would be great to have those aliases not eating the credits available for additional addresses. The "Plus" plan has only 5 addresses - having the ones above makes the client crippled.

                                        Is it realistic to have them as receiving-only aliases for free?

                                        • Usable Family Plan

                                          Visionary is way too much of space, addresses and domains!
                                          Normal family would use not more than 1GB per user and no more than single custom domain.
                                          Main points for improvement:
                                          - Increase the users to 10
                                          - Decrease storage to 5GB total
                                          - Decrease custom domains to 1
                                          - Remove ProtonVPN

                                          And then have price around 10EUR/month to be truly affordable.
