How can we improve ProtonMail?

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Visionary Multi-User Support

    Instead of creating new Member within the Organisation, let us "add" People that already have an Protonmail Account to our Organisation.

    The benefit of that is, the Member will keep it's own Account even after he leaves the Organisation and the Admin/Visionary User just have to allocate the Addresses and Storage!

    Simply said: The Admin Creates the Organisation and Add Member with their existing Protonmail Address. If the Member is on a Free Plan, he will get the benefit from the Visionary User.
    When the Member leaves the Organisation, he will then fall back to the Free Plan.

    • iOS UI improvements

      The iOS UI desperately needs two things. 1) the ability to select multiple emails and perform an action (i.e. delete). 2) the text in the inbox view needs to be darker. i'm all for minimalism, but at least choose black as the font color. the light grey for the sender's name is difficult to view, particularly at quick glance. i'm a relatively young guy with fairly good vision, so it's not my eyesight!

      • Block newsletters

        Add option to reject (or move to spam) all newsletters (except whitelisted). Currently there is newsletter detection and adding auto-action in filters won't be a problem :).

          • Prevent printing (digital and hard copy) of encrypted emails

            I'd like the feature to prevent the printing option (digital e.g. PDF and hard copy) of encrypted emails to both ProtonMail and non-ProtonMail users. Otherwise where is the point of setting an expiry date when the receiver can print the email? Thank you.

            • I call it "shadow login"

              Hi guys
              I have a idea that makes ProtonMail more secure.
              I am Chinese, please forgive me bad English!

              I call it "shadow login"
              Everyone can set two passwords, Used to login to the same e-mail account.
              First passwords: Is now using the password, the regular password.
              Second passwords: "Shadow login" After logging in you can't see the First passwords all of email.
              So, what's the point?
              Assuming Bob was forced to login to his email, Bob can use “shadow password” login to protect e-mail security.

                • Liberate the Webmail!

                  Currently the ProtonMail webmail interface requires non-free javascript code in order to run (determined by using the GNU LibreJS addon). By making the javascript code on ProtonMail free software, I'm sure you'll attract many more members from the free software community

                    • threads on android app

                      Having threads on desktop is great, but I mostly use email on my phone. The lack of threads in the android app makes my inbox a real mess and conversations are hard to follow.

                      Thanks!

                      • Hide email address on login screen

                        Android app needs feature to hide username at login screen. Option to mask it would be good too. I don't want anyone seeing any of my login credentials thanks

                        • Get a list of all used disposable adress

                          (Feature seen on for example 33mail)

                          Let's say I create an account on a website with my protonmail account as mail. If a week later I want to log on this site and am asked for my mail I often have trouble remembering which one I used given that I us one per website.
                          So that would be VERY handy to access to the list of all used disposable address to avoid this issue.

                          I can clarify if needed.

                          • Mailing Groups (listserv-style, like the old yahoo groups)

                            Introduce Mailing Groups, like the old Yahoo Groups or Google Groups. In other words, an administered Mailing list, that People can subscribe to, and an associated protonmail address that can be written to, and all users receive the E-Mail. No Need for all the shared storage and the other stuff, just a Mailing list.

                            Other Providers like Yahoo or Google require the members to have a Yahoo or Google account respectively, they are not provider-agnostic. ProtonMail could differentiate itself by allowing People from different E-Mail Providers to sign up to the Mailing Group.

                            There could be i.e. a free Option…

                                • I would love to see "Canned Replies" like what Gmail has. This would be HUGE for business users.

                                  It would be very nice to be able to save replies in the system to drop them in.

                                  • Reply without attachments by default

                                    Currently when replying to an e-mail, any attachment received will get included again with the reply - unless it is manually removed - using up additional storage space. It would be helpful if the attachments either were not automatically added or if there was at least some way of turning this "feature" off.

                                    • Accept more crypto currencies.

                                      Bitcoin is good for storage of value, but there are other good payment options. You would be way ahead of the curve if you accepted IOTA as a payment method. Payments would be free of charge and would take 15 seconds.

                                      • phishing email

                                        a ability to report phishing emails, with all the needed information, headers, source code and the displayed massage.
                                        the idea should filter the destination by the tld, .nl has a point en the icann has a other, essentially the court should be able to effectively delete the registration and arrest en prosecute the culprits.

                                        the function checks the domain from front to back to check the governing organisation, there should be a no tld function & future blocking of non tld extensions.
