  1. Add "do not allow mailbox password recovery" option

    I don't really like how you need a recovery email to keep the strength of two passwords. Without a recovery email someone technically only needs your login password and just reset the mailbox password to access your account.

    Can you please add a "Do not allow mailbox password recovery" option in the settings? For those who choose not to enter a recovery email but enjoys the security of needing 2 passes.

    • Enable multiple language passwords.

      The ability to have a password in another language such as Japanese, Thai, Chinese, or a combination of languages.

      • Donations

        Hello Protonmail,

        I'd like to ask if it would be possible to setup a payment/donation system that would allow users to pay with cryptocurrencies.
        Personally, I prefer either Bitcoins or better yet Dash.
        Will this be possible in the foreseeable future?
        I'd very much like to donate to your cause but I'm also security conscious/paranoid.

        • Separate signature files for WWW and Mobile Access

          Most major email providers allow you to set separate signature files for mail sent from the web/PCs and mail sent from phone or mobile apps. I would like to see ProtonMail adopt that system.

          Most commonly, we see this in practice when people want to add a "Sent from my phone", "Sent from my iPhone", or "Sent from my Android phone" to their phone app sig file to alert people that they may have been unusually brief or misspelled a word here or there because they were on the go and didn't have access to a full keyboard.

          Right now,…

            • Would there be a way to incorporate images with a link in your signature?

              I'm not the most tech savvy that's why I use this email for everything after getting all other accounts hacked. I'm a graphic designer and illustrator just thought it would own if my sig could be a very short wide image of one of my paintings with a link embedded in the image to my website. Would be super cool but probably asking allot.

                • make the recovery mail permanent

                  make it permanent or at least make a password - that is separate from the login and mailbox passwords - to change it

                  • 3rd party key signing

                    Public Key servers can be compromised, keys can be modified etc.

                    I would love a feature that would allow for 3rd party key-signing, or key-signing via other ProtonMail account holders.

                    • Ability to set a self-destruct timer by default in settings.

                      The self-destruct feature is great, but in order to use it I have to manually enable it each time I send out an email to another ProtonMail user. This is easily forgettable and even as paranoid as I am, I forgot all the time. So having this feature as something I could enable for all outgoing emails automatically would be super nice.

                      • Back and forward keyboard arrows should move to next and previous email messages relative to email being viewed within the same folder

                        I think this is optimal from a user interface perspective for going through a large volume of email quickly.

                              It would be useful if the default behavior for closing the compose popup was to save the message as draft. Deleting is rarely a good idea, the user can delete the message clicking the discard button

                                    • Show CC and BBC fields By Default (Or Have a Setting Available That Lets the User Enable It as the Default on His/Her Own Personal Account)

                                      I'd like to see Proton Mail add an option under settings to have the "CC" and "BBC" fields automatically displayed when composing emails on the web and on the Android app.

                                      I routinely use the "BBC" field and would rather just have it be displayed versus having to enable it every time. It's a small thing, but I could avoid a dozen extra clicks a day if there were a setting I could enable that would automatically show all fields (To, CC, and BCC).

                                      • New 2.0 doesn't have Next and Previous buttons to skips through inbox

                                        I maybe missing it but I cannot see to skip to the next or previous messages whilst reading my emails on 2.0
