  1. 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.

    • ProtonMail App for MacOS

      For MacOS, for more protection, we should get a new MacOS app for ProtonMail. This is a more simple way of using ProtonMail instead of visiting the website or creating new encryption methods for existing mail apps (such as apple mail).

      • Allow Free Protonmail Users to use Full Contact Feature

        Instead of saving the Full Contact feature for Premium Users, You can allow Free Users to enjoy Full Contact Feature for limited number of Contacts, say, 100 or less or more.

        • Read multiple emails

          If I have 20 emails to read, I want to just kick 1 button to read the next email. Instead of clicking back to the main page, then going back the 2nd email, and on and on. Gmail has this.

          • 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.

            • More than 25 recipients for Professional customers

              Please allow more than 25 recipients for Professional customers. You will allow me to pay you for >100 users, but you won't let me email my entire company. I am a growing business, I would like to grow with you. This arbitrary limit makes that very difficult.

              • Only allow login with the username/main address, not with every address.

                Do not allow that you can log into the account with every address.

                If my account name is john.smith then only allow login with john.smith or john.smith@protonmail.com. Not with finance.john.smith@protonmail.com or any other address.

                Perfect would be if you would have the choice what address can be used in order to log into your account.

                With the current way you have to give away your login username in order to send emails. Hiding the username from the public would be an advantage, since they would have to guess your username and the password. Not only one of them.

                    • Catch-alls (receiving and sending) for plus plans.

                      As a person who uses Protonmail for personal purposes, it is not affordable for me and some of us to upgrade to professional to just use catch-all (and SMTP/sender identities, I don't know if it is supported but it is like sending equivalent to catch alls). Please make catch-alls available as an add-on for Plus accounts or better, please make it available for free for all paid plans. Either is okay for us. Thank you.

                                • Encrypted password reset emails

                                  Similar as the feature provided by Facebook - it will be great if the password reset emails are sent encrypted to recovery email addresses (public key must be imported prior to that).

                                  Extending this functionality - a user should be able to reset his/her password by sending a PGP signed email from external email address (again - public key must be importer prior to that).

                                  This will help preventing account takeover if the recovery email is compromised.

                                  • 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.

                                        • change tag color in "All Mail" section (iOS)

                                          I can't read clearly the tags inside "All Mail" section, I think there is too little contrast between text color and background color. example: https://i.imgur.com/vi7nbl5.jpg (trash in spanish).
