    • Can I download my private key?

      Downloading your public key is an option, but since we can't chose to upload our own let us download the one generated by ProtonMail.

      I basically have to have two sets of keys now. One for everyday life, and one specifically for protonmail.
      Which is a major pain on Mobile when I receive an email using the wrong key, and I have to wait until I'm home to read it.

      Either let us download the privatekey, or upload our own.

          • Ability to disable default alias

            Somehow spammers have gotten their hands on my default .ch address, and that's why I would like the ability to disable it.

            • Bring back ability to swipe to delete from the sent folder

              The new update removed the ability to swipe to delete messages from the sent folder forcing us to go into every single message in order to delete it. Unbelievably time consuming and nothing but a hassle. At least provide us with an option in settings to select which folders we want our swipe commands to apply to so everyone can make their own choice.

              • Search Results with Delete Option

                To have a delete button avaiable on the Search Results screen.
                Currently a search of the Trash Folder does not show a Delete option for the results.

                • Prompt for Encryption

                  It would be nice to have a setting "Prompt for Encryption" that alerted the user before an unencrypted message was sent to a user outside of ProtonMail. This would prevent accidentally sending sensitive information without it first being encrypted.

                  I noted this when a draft, which I had previously setup for encryption, was sent unencrypted when I loaded the draft and sent it without double-checking.

                        • 15GB or 20GB of storage on FREE accounts

                          I think ProtonMail should increase the size of FREE accounts to 20GB like Gmail which has a 15GB limit but more. Let's face it, we are concerned about privacy but it all adds up to security. We have bills to pay and the medical/banking hacking is on the rise and there's a lot spam out there. I need something more secure. Besides in the professional world, users tend to make mistakes when it comes to security.

                          If 20GB seems farfetched, then 15GB should suffice but I'm sure users would want more GB space for free than MB. If I have…

                          • Delete attached images from received email

                            It would be great if you could delete attachments from a received email, after downloading those attachments.
                            Photos often are very large files and chew-up your mailbox memory allotment.

                                  • Accessibility Options for the Android App (e.g. Font Size)

                                    ProtonMail looks great but the fonts are too small for me on the Android App.

                                    As someone who has a little trouble with my vision, I was disappointed because the Android app is unusable due to the small font size.

                                    There needs to be an option to increase the overall font size used in the app, ideally one size for subject, one for body, one for menus etc.

                                    I know you can 'pinch' the email body to increase the size but this doesn't wrap the text so is not really an elegant solution.

                                    It would be great if this could…

                                    • Allow folders (& sub folders) to be created like yahoo etc.

                                      Really need folder options so that I can create sub folders. I'll hold off on the paid version until this becomes available.

                                      • Alert the user if they send an email with the word "attached" in it, yet they do not have any attachments.

                                        Google does this with gmail. For example if you write,

                                        "You'll find my essay attached to this email."

                                        And then you hit "send" without actually attaching something, it will stop you and ask, "Did you really mean to send this without an attachment?"

                                        It isn't often that this feature is useful, but when it is, it is life-saving.
