Support multiple accounts on iOS
Either allow multiple accounts to be open simultaneously in the iOS app or add option to switch between accounts without having to formally log out and log in between each swap.
Despite allowing multiple aliases for a single account, if you have a personal account but also shared an account (eg with a spouse) aliases don’t suffice. The idea of forwarding every email from one account to another is archaic, lose for user and lose for proton mail because you’ll be storing the same message twice unnecessarily.
Multiple account support is a basic feature for email apps.
Thank you for your feedback! The iOS Proton Mail app supports multiple accounts.

why the protonmail app does not support multiple accounts ? I have few accounts on protonmail.com/ch and each time I need to sort out from the app and enter with the account desired . So Why you can't manage multiple accounts as hotmail or liberomail ? very simple
What's the word on this?
This would be cool but I would prefer to see a Bridge app for Andriod and iOS. But if theres not going to be a bridge app this would be the next best thing to it. Gmail for examples allows users to have more than on email account in their app and so does AquaMail. It would be nice to have multiple accounts/addresses on one phone since many have a personal and work email addresses.
I'd include simple UI features and gestures support for example:
* swiping in email to see previous / next email;
* adding better force support;
* swipes from the main inbox / folder can integrate more options to move, tag, star etc
* perhaps including a focused inbox though I don't know if this is proprietary.
I would love to see the mobile apps improved to become a little more user friendly and to compete better with iOS Mail or Outlook etc.
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
Right and have the option to see all the emails in a combined Inbox
The app could have a set of TABS to switch between different accounts

Yes, I need this like yesterday. Some of us have business and personal email accounts. I hate having to log in every time via the web to do this.

I have a work email and a personal email that are different accounts and it is frustrating to switch back and forth.
Please implement this - my guess is your will see higher adoption, as people will switch exclusively to proton bc of this
Compartmentalization makes this critical. One account for bills. One account for work. One account for social media, etc.
Switching back and forth, with 2fa on each account effectively makes it not possible to use phone for mail.
Could you add multiple accouts option in the app please? Limited to 3 for free and +3 for paid accounts. It's really frustrating to log out each time i need to switch to another account and i dont want to have a NSA backdoor in my phone (Shuch as Parallel Space...).
Thank you :)
Much needed feature for the iPhone app. Having access to both my personal and business account within the app without having to log out of one to get into the other would be a huge convenience.
Yes please! I would also like to go back and forth between accounts without needing to enter a pin or using Touch ID to access these accounts every time. Touch ID or app pin should give access to all accounts simultaneously.
Yes this would be an absolutely amazing idea for managing a business and personal account.
Please allow multiple email accounts from one mobile app. I am using an iPhone and would like to be able to get notifications from my business and personal email addresses in Protonmail.
It's fine if each account is still considered separate and storage usage is tallied separately, if there were just a way to be logged into both accounts.
I would like to be able of switching between protonmail accounts in my web based accounts and in my mobile app as well. A very exciting feature for all users, like instagram or other simillar apps already are doing so.
