  1. 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.

    • Pro version should have 5 emails + 5 users

      I have been a protonmail for less than a week and I love it! So much so that I upgraded to pro so that I can give my wife an email account where we can communicate and share private info.

      To my surprise, the 5 emails in pro are only that, 5 emails. I cannot manage or assign additional users the emails that I have created.

      This was very frustrating to me because if I want to create users I have to upgrade to visionary, which I will not do for a family of 2.

      I would like to request…

      • Protonmail is too expensive. Offer the option to buy features for life

        I find paying 4 euros per month too expensive.
        I would suggest adding the possibility to buy more features like adding more addresses, more filters rules or more GB for life.

          • The ability to search the contents of emails, not just the Subject

            It is a deal killer for business use to not be able to search the contents of emails Vs just subject titles. Combine that with the TERRIBLE conversation thread that will not open ALL messages at the same time and PM may be doing great engineering but poor client business development.

            • Android App being open source

              Being able to download it through F-Droid and thus being independent from the Play Store would be great.

              • Default to secure send

                I think that the send button should default to secure send when mailing non-protonmail users. It's too easy to send in the clear accidently.

                • Formatting, enlarge the font

                  It would be nice and save my eyes, to be able to enlarge the font, or the text. Easier to pre-read my emails before sending.

                    Partner with Ubuntu Phone to create a line of secure cell phones and tablets... where secure means SECURE.

                    • MacOS & Windows Mail App

                      It would be awesome if ProtonMial built apps for Windows and macOS just like on mobile. I feel that this is the missing gap for PM.

                      • Temporarily store 2-step verification

                        As it’s already (welcome) extra work to enter two passwords, could 2-step verification be implemented so that known devices would only need to be verified again every 30 days or so?

                        At the moment, with 2-step verification enabled, even a page reload triggers triple authentication, which makes the added security a poor experience.

                        • Hypertext link support to email clients (webmail and mobile apps)

                          If someone has written me a link to a web page. I would like to be able to click or touch the web link so that the page opens to me with a single click. Now I need to copy the address to clipboard then open it, which is very cumbersome especially on the Android client.

                          I'm surprised that this does not exist already. Did I miss something?

                              When the Android App updates it requires the user to login again. I frequently forget that I need to login again and will go days without receiving email on my mobile device.

                              • federation

                                Protonmail should be federated.

                                Why has it never been discussed? It seems silly that Protonmail only works with Protonmail, there should be a open federated standard all encrypted email providers can use together.

                                In a perfect world, you could use easy automated encryption between providers like Protonmail, Tutanota and Mailpile. You would even be able to easily host your own email server that adheres to this standard.

                                Please make it happen.

                                  • Allowing Costum Domain to be used by more than 1 user

                                    Love ProtonMail and how it handles mail for our company. Would love it even more if we could set up several user accounts using the same custom domain, so that we could give our key employees email addresses with the same domain without giving them total control of the account. That way the company can retain their emails after they depart, as part of our intellectual property and as a vital record to our corporate activities.

                                      • IMAP/SMTP for FREE in the basic version

                                        I hope the users will be able to download e-mail (using IMAP/SMTP) unless paying for premium. This is crucial in my opinion (to be able to use the service longterm). If not, 500 Mb becomes rediculous after some time...

                                          Hello,

                                          did you ever take a look at the features of https://proxy.sh/?

                                          In my opinion, this is the most advanced vpn service by far.
                                          Are you planning on incorporating any?
                                          I'm on a mac, and a custom vpn client is the least you can do, tunnelblick is a joke. Also handling the nodes by ovpn files is bad.

                                          The other interesting thing would be different entry/exit nodes.

                                          Currently, tunnelblick disconnects from time to time.

                                          Also, many mac users use little snitch firewall, a configuration/config guide would be great.

                                          Thanks!
