      • Improve iOS mobile app

        The iOS client app need more features. For example:
        * Get some ideas from Apple's iOS Mail app
        * Allow multiple accounts
        * Allow easy address book editing, copy/paste email address from a contact entry
        * When an account is logged in, lock the screen after a time-out by default
        * When attaching photos, allow different levels of compression like the iOS Mail app
        * Improve search functionality and allow body text, search not just sender name

        • User name

          I would like to be able to have a user name that is different then any of my email addresses to be able to log in to the account and have that user name be the only way to log in, keeping my primary email or alias email accounts from being able to log in.

          • warning/reminder for no encryption of subject lines

            Please add a warning or reminder with the SUBJECT field when composing a new mail, that subject lines are not encrypted and can be read by just about anyone along the way.
            This can be a gray default text in the subject field that is typed over when entering a subject for instance. (similar to "search" in a search box). Or perhaps a popup or tooltip. Perhaps this can be done for TO, CC, and BCC fields as well.

            • Decred Payment Option

              Hi everyone! I would like to suggest having a payment option for Decred, (one of the most legitimate cryptocurrencies in my opinion). I believe this reddit post makes the case for Decred better than I can:
              https://www.reddit.com/r/decred/comments/6wxueo/your_best_pitch_for_decred/

              This is a strong community, with one of the best development teams leading the way.

              Thank you!

              • Paying without using credit card

                A very large number of people is afraid of using credit card on the internet. I know. I am one of them. I will gladly pay for this great service that ProtonMail is providing butt without using credit or debit card. So if there is a way for this feature to be posbille count on me to be a paid user.

                  • 2Factor User Key Database provided by Protonmail

                    I presently use KeePass as my database for storing my passwords. But I have not found a database that will store 2 passwords. And I prefer to use two passwords rather than one.
                    Additionally, I would prefer to have a keydatabase that has 4096 bit encryption because other people know of this files existence. And I would feel better if it is made by protonmail rather than someone who I don't know is really concerned with security as much as I am.

                      • Bitcoin wallet for bitcoin storage by users

                        In today's world there is a big problem of bitcoin storage. ProtonMail has established itself as a reliable service. You are already accepting bitcoins for payment. But that's not enough. Let's make it possible for users to store bitcoins on their wallets. From these purses they will be able to pay for the services of ProtonMail and transfer to other places, at their discretion. It was very comfortable and would add a lot of protonmail stars. You would have had a great commercial success because you are reliable and honest people.

                            GlassWire is an excellent firewall, but way too expensive for the common user. Consider a joint venture for Protonmail/vpn customers or direclty buy the company :D

                                  • make it completely private

                                    when registering with proton mail for the first time , it asks for the phone number which makes the users skeptical about whether its gonna be kept by you or not. there are many friends of mine who are not registering with you because you ask for the phone number to send the otp. I suggest you to send the otp to any temporary email id so that each user will be rest assured for his privacy. I know that you say that you dont store phone number but users are really very skeptical about it.

                                        For professional use in our company, we would need shared calendars, and a desktop app.

                                        • the PROTONbook

                                          Google has Chromebooks, maybe PROTONbooks in the future could teach "Big Brother" a lesson about privacy? Ambitious, maaaybe? Hey, I'd love it.
