  1. *Unlimited* Disposable Email Aliases

    Startmail explains it perfectly. They offer unlimited disposable aliases, which expire within a given amount of time. They also offer custom aliases which can be saved and used indefinitely.

    It is the disposable alias which will help protect privacy, when submiting an email to an untrusted recipient. After all, how much privacy do we have if our fixed emails become the foundation for building and selling our marketing profiles, just as is done by gmail. We limit personal activity virtual trails by disposing of aliases for casual uses. But, unlike custom aliases, which build on our identifiable original email address,…

  2. Ability to use keybase.io keys for PGP mail

    Many people have keybase.io accounts and already use those keys for encrypted mail. It would be lovely to have a feature that allows you to pull in those keys for sending encrypted mail through Protonmail.

  3. Encryption of all metadata

    If Protonmail is to be serious about privacy, I don't understand why all metadata isn't kept solely in encrypted form. I just signed up for Scryptmail and any data is kept in encrypted form, unreadable for any third party.

    I don't see why it would be necessary to keep for instance the senders or subject titles in encrypted form when Protonmail doesn't support POP3 or IMAP.

    The problem is that otherwise e-mail is inherently insecure, because if for instance a governmental entity wants to see your account, while they won't have access to the content of your e-mails, they can…

    We have given this quite a bit of thought, but at the present moment, it is not clear the advantages would outweigh the disadvantages.

    The biggest problem is search. Encrypting all metadata would break metadata search entirely on the web client as there is still no efficient way to handle search of encrypted data within a browser.

    Secondly, metadata encryption’s value from a privacy standpoint is also somewhat dubious. Because we ultimately must deliver the message to the recipient, we must know who the recipient is. At the current time, there still isn’t any proven and viable way to work around this.

    Metadata encryption is an area of continued research for us, and when the opportunity arises and the technology for doing this matures, we will definitely implement it in ProtonMail.

  4. Add security questions

    You can add security questions on resetting password - after clicking link sent to recovery email, before you can enter new password, you should answer two (or three) security questions.

    This will be additional security for resetting password.

  5. Tool to export/save the private key

    So we can use it in other OpenPGP systems. Eg. for signing files.

  6. A function to eliminate the .ch domain and leave only the .com

    All accounts ProtonMail bring by default the domain .ch and .com

    We don't all live in Switzerland

    So we don't want to have there the domain .ch

  7. Put a country flag in security log entries

    The security log fails to give the user a clear idea of who logged in. Just by the time and some ip adress it's difficult to distinguish me from a hacker.
    Therefore, I propose there is a country flag in the security log entries. This way I can just take a quick look at the logs and if somehow someone in say cuba, china, russia whatever logged in, I know for sure that wasn't me.
    Now obviously a hacker would use Tor or some other form of proxy but that proxy would still most likely be located in some other…

  8. 1 click logout button

    Currently it takes 2 clicks to logout of Protonmail. There's no reason for this, 1 is plenty enough. We should have a logout button on top: 1 click and you're out. Simple and fast, that's how it should always be.

  9. Mobile app for Jolla's Sailfish OS

    Hi,

    Protonmail is a great service, but protecting your emails is still not enough to guarantee privacy. Considering that Google openly admits it is capitalizing on all the data stored in our Android devices, and that Apple or BlackBerry simply do not communicate on the data that they collect, protecting our privacy will require more than encrypted emails.

    A new smartphone software company focused on software has been launched by former Nokia employees: Jolla (http://jolla.com/). It is focused on data privacy, and wishes to become an alternative to Android. It has already shipped a smartphone and a tablet.

  12. server-less email hosting

    Take a look at ZeroNetwork (https://zeronet.io/) and consider the existence of a server less ProtonMail system connected to secure social media and webbrowsing experience. What people dreamed TOR could provide, but in a better looking interface, truly secure and redundant storage.

  16. In the labels drop-down menu, provide the check-box for 'Also mark as Read option'.

    In the labels drop-down menu, provide the check-box for 'Also mark as Read option'. This way one can apply label and mark the multiple mails as read.

  17. Save encryption passwords for non-PM contacts, also add a checkbox to send the password as a privnote style second link in the email.

    When emailing an outside contact, save the encryption password to the contact, so next time you message them it automatically fills in that field with the agreed upon password.

    So if I message someone and they have a password to access the message, next time I send it would default to encrypted with the same password.

    You could also add a checkbox to send the password in the actual email as a second link that destroys when read, (just like privnote, which is how I send my passwords anyway)

  18. A select all feature similar to G-Mail

    There is currently a select feature for a whole page, but instead of just one page (Kind of tedious if you have a lot of emails), either make the pages infinite depending on email count, or a select all feature.

  19. Use fuzzy search in contact search (when composing)

    Given the name "Michael Denver" you have to enter all the letters in order for it to be found. Should also work with:
    - "mic den"
    - "denver michael"
    - "mi d"

  20. Manual "Expire" (Self-Destruct) Button

    Manual "Expire" (Self-Destruct) Button allows the user to manually expire an email at any time or expire a self-destruct link before the expiration time.

    As it is, let's say your recipient received your private link and read the message one hour after you sent it, but the self-destruct time was set for 48 hours. The email link will still be accessible until the expiration time. A manual Expire button would resolve that.
