It would be great if we could add a profile picture to the account, as I tried doing that but couldn't find the option to add an image.

I have noticed that our email accounts are identified by the initials of our names, which is practical. However, I would like to suggest the possibility of adding account pictures or gravatars to our accounts.
Adding account pictures will not only provide a more personal touch to the user experience but also make it easier to recognize accounts, especially for those of us who have multiple accounts in use. This is a feature that many other email providers offer, and I believe it would be a positive addition to ProtonMail.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this suggestion.
been 2 almost 3 years proton just admit you aint gonna add the feature

"Wish I could downvote suggestions"
I'm glad you can't because this is merely reactionary.
"This is a very stupid feature because protonmail is a privacy company. Adding pictures would give proton more sensitive data to store and could deanonymize the users"
Why would they store it? Proton's security is client-side.
"Uh - No thank you. I want LESS pictures on the web. That's why I'm in a Secure Mail Client"
Irrelevant. Don't upload one. Use an AI generated face from this-person-does-not-exist.com.
Yes I would really like to have this feature. It is not as critical as having threaded messages in the Android app. But it would be nice to be able to use my corporate logo.
But sadly we have all figured out by now that when Proton says something is "planned", it's code for "will not happen anytime in the next millennium".
Because if they meant to implement it, it would take a day or two.
Isn't this accomplished by using Gravatar.com?
I completely agree. It makes the product worse by not having this feature.

Agree with this. I usually have a packet with a small pic I send to clients. It is always much better if they can place a “face to the voice or email” per se. Thanks !
I know there are several requests for profile pictures. But I wanted to justify why they should be and the idea of how this feature can be implemented.
Justification: For many users, Proton Mail and other services (Drive, Calendar) are the main services they use on a daily basis. For many people, a profile picture is just something important, it can be a selfie, or it can be a company or individual logo. Proton provides the "Proton for Business" service, and as you know, businesses want their account to be as professional as possible. Users with their own domain in the email address probably want the same.
Idea for implementation: Adding a profile picture involves sending that picture somewhere to Proton's servers. So this forces Proton Team to have extra space on the server (one for profile pictures, the other for Proton Drive). I came up with 3 points that might be a good solution to implement this feature.
1. Setting each photo in 1:1 format, where the maximum size would be 256x256 or 128x128,
2. The ability to add a photo only in Mail Plus, Drive Plus or Proton Unlimited plans, it may also be only for Proton Unlimited, it's up to the Team's decision,
3. Adding a profile picture would take free space, adequate to the size of the profile picture file, from Proton Drive. This photo could appear in Proton Drive as a file, e.g. profile_pic.[format of uploaded file], or not appear in Proton Drive, but take up space from it (so Proton Team would not need additional space to store profile pictures).

There's a visual component to relations with customers and it's psychologically powerful. I agree that this is fairly important.
Ramsey Rodriguez commented
I'm seriously trying to use Proton Mail for professional use, with content that needs security and encryption, but adding a Profile Picture is also needed to assure trust to many stakeholders. Without this makes, it a much more challenging proposition to upgrade to the fully paid version. Do you know if this coming anytime soon? Don't make it obligatory, but at least optional.

Profile pictures are common and should have been a feature choice, years ago.
There are many of us, who wish to add profile pictures. Please give us this option!
No One commented
This is a must for business owners and their logos... if someone chooses not to use one, then don't... I signed up to use Proton for business and am sorely disappointed this wasn't an included feature.
Please add this, Protonmail!
Veysel Karani commented
Finally add profile pictures since B2B on proton is worse due to that?
Like what am i paying for, people ask for this feature years and years already. If i don't see any changes i'm quitting Proton. Brand identity & a logo/face builds already trust with emails - especially in the B2B side.
Veysel Karani commented
Are we getting it anytime?
Robert H Stone commented
Protonmail started adding a picture to my outgoing mail. It seems to be what is called a profile picture. The picture they using is from my Zoom account.
How did they gain access to it?
How can I stop the addition of a picture or change picture, if I can't delete it?
Some people think it's unnecessary and against privacy (just don't put your image, I guess?), some others like me use this service to run a company's communications, and think it makes a difference to recipients if your company's logo is clearly visible. Proton's mission is not to make a service only for those who think it's an unnecessary feature, but ideally to step into the game and offer a real alternative to large internet players, and that includes features that are not essential to private communication, but also to marketing and company identity.

+1. Privacy and anonymity are two distinct concepts. Profile pictures may disturb anonymity, but do not compromise privacy. The ability to add profile pictures is critical for a modern email provider and does not go against Proton's mission.
