Paid plans should provide option to hide promotional ads
Option to hide promotions / ads for proton. Would probably need to be a paid feature. For me the main appeal of protonmail is the lack of ads based on by my emails, lack of calendar events auto created based on my emails, and lack of ads in the interface. I consider the button that says "Get Proton Family" to be an ad.

Yes this is so stupid. I'm paying 13 bucks a month for your top-tier individual subscription. The fact that ads are still even an option at this point is absolutely mind-boggling to me. Like @jaguima said even other places like google or facebook don't pull this s**t. Do better people, you're supposed to be the good alternative.

There is another import detail: they are collecting our user information even when we are paying by the service. It is unbelievable. Soon it will be like Google.
Do not show huge ad popups for Proton products.
This morning I opened Proton Mail on my browser and I was greeted by a huge ad for another Proton plan, even though I'm already a paying customer.
You can't praise yourselves for removing ad trackers from emails while showing disruptive ads yourselves. Not even other free email services like Gmail do that.
I am annoyed that I see frequent ads for ProtonMail and VPN even though I'm paying for the former. Every other app I can think of removes ads for paid accounts.
At the very least offer the option of removing the ads for $10 or something.

The amount of advertisement for "offers" questions whether protonmail is more interested by making money than providing a convenient and performant sevice. We should at least be able to disable it by opting out.
