  1. 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.

      • Free version: disable conversations

        bring back message mode.

        surely your users have already indicated this requirement,
        and as others have expressed better: if the base system doesn't work for the client, they prolly wont move to the paid service...

        I tried settings, but did not find appearance

            • Offer learning course or class

              Im wondering how to get involved. I dont have much knowledge on web except using it. I am very interested in working for ProtonMail. At any lowest entry level if any. Or perhaps a course or class of some sort could be added into the careers option?

              • 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.

                  • Apply existing filters on mailbox

                    It would be great that we can apply newly created filters on the mailbox.

                    • Proton Suite

                      In order to get people to switch from one service to another, Proton needs to offer the security it is revered for as well as other services like Document editing, file storage, calendar operations, etc. Google does this without the security and trust, so if Proton could develop these apps and integrate them with ProtonMail, it would be a serious rival of Google and Yahoo!

                        • Reconfigure mail server to use forward secrecy and authenticated encryption

                          Even though the Protonmail mail-server supports TLS 1.2, the cipher suite configuration is suboptimal. It is highly recommended that the server is reconfigured so that the cipher suites providing forward secrecy (ECDHE or DHE in the name, in this order of preference) and authenticated encryption (GCM or CHACHA20 in the name) are at the top. The server should also be configured to select the best-available suite.

                          This should be fairly easy to implement and provides a much needed security-boost.

                            • Show if a incomming message was encrypted or send in plain-text

                              Show the difference between a message that has just been received via SSL and a message that was encrypted using your public key.

                              Currently there is no way how you can see if a message was encrypted using your PGP-Key, when send from the outside.

                              • PGP Smartcard Support

                                A moderately happy plus subscriber, however i was disappointed to find i cannot use my own PGP keys that i have stored on my YubiKey. I would hope at the very least in future i will be able to use the ProtonMail Bridge and have it allow me to insert my own PGP encrypted messages with my own keys using GPG4Win without throwing me a 554 error.

                                Other ideas for this area:

                                * Support PGP smartcards
                                * Allow plain IMAP connections to ProtonMail so that i can use my own mail client and handle my own encryption
                                * Allow integration…

                                    • Cheaper Mail + VPN Options!

                                      Right now I use Protonmail and Private Internet Access for my VPN. I'd love to switch to your VPN and upgrade my e-mail, which I'm going to have to eventually do for space here... but your prices are completely astronomical! $50.00 a year for both I would reason as being worth it for both services... for $39.99 on PIA VPN, I get more than 2 devices, many different servers, they seem faster that the servers I'm trying with your premium trial. Your services are just not worth as much money as you want for them. You want $288 a year…

                                        • Right side of mail.protonmail landing page on signin should be account meta-data, not promotional material

                                          When I sign into ProtonMail in a browser, you show a whole bunch of promotional ads on the right. Could we instead show folder count, storage breakdown, other meta-data (system status) with a link 'what's new'

                                          Quite tired of being told 'ProtonMail is the highest rated email app in the App store"
