  1. Desktop bridge for free users.

    I am so disappointed that the new 'Protonmail Bridge' is only for paid accounts. I love Protonmail for the fact that it is secure and free. If they continue to leave free users out of these great new features; I may not continue to use Protonmail!

    • Ad revenue

      Add an ad button in protonmail(in the settings) that allows users to choose if they want to see ads.
      There could be options added that allow the user to choose what type of ads they want to see for example tech ads or clothing ads and so on.
      Just think of what this could do for your revenue! You are not crossing any lines as the option to see ads is up to the user.

      • A Proper ProtonVPN Linux Client With GUI

        I would love to see a proper ProtonVPN Linux Client with GUI that looks similar to the Windows version and with the same features. The current Linux client does not look good and it's too much and not plain and simple like with the Windows version. Is there anyone else that are not happy with the current client and want a better one?

        • Virtual/burner credit cards

          One huge step towards privacy is to have disposable burner credit cards, or virtual cards.

          https://privacy.com/ does this in the US. AFAIK today (2018) no-one is doing that in Europe.

            • Setting Default Font and Font Size

              It will be very useful if Protonmail allows user to set the default font type and font size.

              • 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.

                • Yubikey / FIDO U2F Support for Two Factor Authentication

                  Although convenient, a cellular phone is not the most secure method of 2 Factor Authentication. Even more so, it is more likely to be stolen than a Physical 2 Factor device such as a Yubikey. I propose support for FIDO U2F which in turn would support physical 2 Factor devices that support this standard such as Yubikeys.

                  Lastpass and Google both support these standards. If you truly want to become the encrypted version of Gmail as it has been said in the past, you need to be competitive with googles security standards.

                  • Security new feature: RFC 8461 - SMTP MTA Strict Transport Security (MTA-STS)

                    RFC 8461 - SMTP MTA Strict Transport Security (MTA-STS) is a mechanism enabling mail service providers (SPs) to declare their ability to receive Transport Layer Security (TLS) secure SMTP connections and to specify whether sending SMTP servers should refuse to deliver to MX hosts that do not offer TLS with a trusted server certificate.

                    This is obviously to secure messages between mail providers, so users benefit from the additional security on transit. This is backed by: Google, Oath ("yahoo"), Comcast, Microsoft... the big company's in the area... so it should be adopted by them.

                    • iOS app support multiple accounts

                      Either allow multiple accounts to be open simultaneously in the iOS app or add option to switch between accounts without having to formally log out and log in between each swap.

                      Despite allowing multiple aliases for a single account, if you have a personal account but also shared an account (eg with a spouse) aliases don’t suffice. The idea of forwarding every email from one account to another is archaic, lose for user and lose for proton mail because you’ll be storing the same message twice unnecessarily.

                      Multiple account support is a basic feature for email apps.

                      • Make the difference between Mailing Lists and Contact Groups

                        In version 3.15 "Contact Groups" has been introduced for paid users. This feature was highly wanted, however it does not behave as what people should expect but rather as "mailing list". The current feature groups email addresses of contacts, not contacts themselves. Hence if a contact does not have an email stored it cannot be added to a group (many of us want to have phone contacts also stored in PM), or on the other hand, contacts with multiple emails have to be added for each of their emails to the group.

                        The requested feature improve is having two clearly…

                        • Sub-folders.

                          Okay, you've added folders, but only one level. This cannot be considered a top tier email platform for anyone in business until and unless it has the ability for sub-folders (nested). As someone who routinely has thousands of emails in a month, and the need to preserve these emails for regulatory purposes, it's an absolute must to organize them appropriately.

                          Labels/Tags/Single-layer folders are useless and a poor imitation of GMAIL and YAHOO. I want ProtonMail to be superior to those other platforms. More like Exchange/Outlook, without the MSFT bugs.

                              • "Reply-To" field for outgoing emails.

                                "Reply-To" feild is missing in ProtonMail, where we can set an reply-to email address while sending emails. This enables the recipient to reply to that "reply-to" address instead of the one from which the email was sent.

                                      • Option to empty entire inbox just like the empty trash button

                                        I keep getting the notification that i'm running out of space, but I'm only able to delete 50 messages at a time from my inbox. I would rather not spend a good 10-20 minutes trying to delete all my 4000+ emails, 50 at a time and rather just have the same option as the trash folder has, which is to empty the ENTIRE folder.

                                        • Auto forward

                                          I would like the ability to set an auto forward to another email account. Encrypted or unencrypted, at least give us the option
