  1. Allow use of TPM chips to self-encrypt nd manage keys

    As above. Lots of computers these days have a TPM chip to self-generate and de/encrypt.

    If ProtonMail allowed these to be compatible, we wouldn't need to rely on proton to do this and security would be much increased.

    • rotating keys

      The secret key is only decrypted by javascript in client's web browser. However it's also possible that client's browser & computer is not safe so the decrypted key can be lost.

      It's better to allow:
      1. Manually switch encryption key: A button that user can simply click to get a new key and re-encrypt all the emails with the new key, after the user feels he previously log in from some where unsafe.

      2. Auto key rotating: After a period of time, such as 3 months, system automatically generate a new key when user log in.

        • Organically grow buttons with use

          Right now (in website view) the top buttons are all the same size, but undoubtedly (unless using keyboard shortcuts) some buttons get used more than others, so why are they all the same size - I don't want to accidentally hit send to trash when I meant to archive.

          Machine learning should figure out how often you use a button and make it easier to click on by making it wider.

          • Change system where not needed to convert CSV to Unicode text

            Thanks for great service. But... I can't make it work following exactly your instructions to convert Outlook contact files to Unicode in order to upload to Protonmail. Very frustrating using this without contact list.

            • BLOCK SENDER FEATURE IS LACKING BUT ESSENTIAL FOR INCREASED PERSONAL SECURITY

              What more do I need to say? Practically all other mainstream clients use this feature. If an email address is being used to spam me, a simple block feature would save data, processing power and personal online security.
              For a system which aims to be the absolute best of all hosted emails from a security point of view, it is surprising that this option has not been included. I would hope to see it in future editions! :)

                • Warn when sending to insecure email addresses

                  I primarily use protonmail for secure communication among business partners that are also on protonmail. (some with custom domains)

                  I occasionally accidentally send a message to a non-protonmail recipient without knowing it. I would like to avoid doing that, is there a way to either

                  1) prevent email to any outside addresses
                  or
                  2) warn me before i send an email to an non-protonmail address

                  thanks

                  • "Insert Link" option default entry to "Link or Email" field

                    Presently, when text is highlighted and the "Insert Link" option is clicked, a window waiting for the link to be pasted into opens, but defaults the cursor to the "Text to display" field, which is already populated by the highlighted text and likely not needed to be changed.

                    It would make more sense (GMail does this) to automatically default the cursor to the "Link or Email" field where the link is to be pasted, if the operation was enacted when text was highlighted i.e. the "Text to display" field would already be populated.

                    • Remove Addresses on Paid

                      Its very stupid that we can not remove addresses. It is a surefire way to delete personal info and get rid of spammers, and if its too painstaking to get rid of 100+ emails. Also what if they made one by mistake?

                        • Encryption portal for recipients of Proton encrypted mail is needed to be considered business ready!

                          Yes yes... Encryption portal for recipients of Proton encrypted mail
                          A portal for none ProtonMail customers IS Essential:
                          - with a portal a recipient is able to create their own account to view encrypted emails from a ProtonMail sender.
                          - a ProtonMail mail sender does not have to regenerated new keys.
                          - plus the recipient doesn't have to administered the passwords.
                          - no need to manually administered keys or passwords for none ProtonMail recipient's
                          - future proof ProtonMail, none customers are able to administered all ProtonMail senders within one portal, i.e I have to other business ProtonMail plus users, and…

                              My laptop is old IBM Thinkpad X61 and have a complex hardware layer for security of public keys. I know you developing a conection with a Desktop 3rd party mail client, i can wait to start to use.

                                  • Highlight security status of the email better. (Internal encrypted/PGP MIME/Unencrypted etc)

                                    Highlight the security status of the email rather than just the small lock symbol which on hover tells what the status of email is.

                                    Examples:
                                    1. End to end encrypted using PGP MIME
                                    2. External message stored encrypted
                                    3. End to end encrypted internal message

                                    I would like to know when someone sent me an encrypted email (using my gpg ofcourse) and that its different from normal email. There should be a way to highlight or better show this status.

                                      • Priority 24/7 phone and email support (particularly for paying clients)

                                        Not sure about everyone else, but if I'm paying quite a lot of money per month for just an email account, I would expect some level of support by email and telephone. This would include a specified email and telephone point of contact address for prompt resolution of technical issues, not just a support forum.

                                        One of the problems with services such as Gmail is their poor support, but they are at least free.

                                        Current support is "OK" but sometimes slow and incomplete.

                                        • Labels automatically set for a particular contact

                                          Rather than setting the label myself on an e-mail, would it be possible to place a filter on a contact so that all e-mails received from that contact would, by default, be labeled whatever I decide ?
                                          e.g. a contact is my shooting club - Any e-mail received from my shooting club would automatically be labelled "shooting".
                                          Thanks
