Remove dependance on google play services
Protonmail android app is dependent on google play services and that is obviously against privacy and security.
Users who removed/disable google play services or used vanilla "lineageos" without gapps cannot get the mail client work properly.
Google play services collect every possible piece of info about the user; location, body sensors, application usage, and every other possible thing. So telling the use to enable/install google services you compromise his privacy and security by 3rd party app which is clearly against the idea if Protomail.
I hope you can correct this and have no dependence on google at all.
For the degoogled folks who have a serious threat model, this is a must

Any update on this? I'm using grapheneOS and I get notifications from Signal no problem. I'm sussing out the features on Proton mail over Tutanota, and I really want to make a switch for some crucial features for my business, but this one is a deal breaker...
This needs to be implemented ASAP.
I disagree. The vast majority of people have a basic Android OS with Google Play Store (myself included). Not everyone knows (or care) how to install an alternative OS on their phone.
I disagree. It's a very convenient feature for newcomers who want to migrate from Google. There are many people who have used Google services for decades, you can't expect them to migrate their data manually.
I don't understand how Proton want fight for online freedom and have a such strong dependency to Google Play Services.
I am now running an AOSP rom without Play Services that is aiming to be more secure and better for privacy (it is DivestOS).
But I can't have email notifications because ProtonMail is only using Google Play Services with no fallback to local push. Even a regular (configurable) gathering of new emails every hours would work for me. I don't need it to be real time, as if I wait for an email, I just check myself!

I can tell you with total certainty that if Proton did not offer to import all my items from Google, there is a 0% chance I would have switched to Proton. It is just too much work to manually copy literally decades of data. The import capability is there for people who need or want it; if you don't, then ignore it.
Proton definitely should work to De-Google all of their services
I don't understand why people keep calling google an evil corporation. Just 10 years ago when google was a startup. everyone loved google. I think importing from google is convenient because you don't have to manage to mail service when the emails from one mail service is goes to your main one.
Absolute most important google service for proton to distance themselves from is GMS.
the options to import mail and contacts, fine it's a one time dump. if anything it sends a message to google that you've had enough of them and hopefuly they loose visibility of futre data from those services. But GMS, that is a constant feed of data that can be tracked back to our device IDs.
GMS must go! Putting all three posible votes I can into this one!
Now ProtonPass is embedding Youtube videos directly in its onboarding process 🤦

They should have moderators on these threads. The number of bots here is mind blowing. So annoying that I wouldn't mind doing it for free myself.
Reported, this is a spam.
After reading the complete blog or just the conclusion you can get your point easily, i have also learned from other platforms https://animaliaplanet.com/ultrak9-pro/ but the way proton mail terms and condition actual works i only learned from their own form.

The referral fee discount promotion is a must, not an option, because it offers a 20% discount on transaction fees. CoinViewer has officially partnered with Binance to provide a referral code with a 20% discount on transaction fees.
