    I think that making a standalone contacts app would probably be unnecessary, perhaps even impractical. I cannot speak for Android, but for iOS users to be able to fully utilize their contact data with all iOS functionality, Proton will probably need to integrate with the iOS contacts app, allowing users to sync the iOS contacts app with Proton just like how you can sync with Google, Outlook, iCloud, etc..

    Making a standalone app would take more time and money both to implement and to maintain, and would likely be unable to provide basic features like Caller ID on iOS.

    Anyway, I would love if Proton could provide a status update on this. If there's something blocking progress on this feature, as a customer I would love to know what's going on. This feature has been planned for a long time, and many people, myself included, consider it very critical. Being left in the dark is honestly as bad as, or worse than not having the feature, especially as brand new services like Proton Docs continue to be added to the Proton suite. Transparency builds trust.

    I think Proton is doing good work and I understand how things sometimes fall to the sidelines. I don't think they deserve the hostility being directed at them in this thread. Keep in mind that every single suggestion on this forum is absolutely critical to somebody.

    That said, I do strongly agree that this feature is long overdue. It is, in my personal opinion, the single most critical missing feature across the entire Proton suite. With this functionality added, Proton Mail would functionally replace Gmail completely.

    I really hope we get an update on this soon.

    I would love an update on this desperately needed feature. "Planned" doesn't inspire much confidence when there has been no word for several years.

    Just going to throw in my two cents here. This feature is a show-stopper. Contact integration with devices is desperately needed for Proton to be a viable ecostystem for everyday use, even if it means keeping contacts decrypted on the user's device to allow the OS to access them.

    Even if Proton kept contacts unencrypted on the user's device, being able to sync contacts to Proton's servers instead of relying of Google or iCloud to sync contacts would still be an overall improvement to security and privacy. For most people, in order to use basic phone functionality like texting and caller ID, one has to save their contact info unencrypted on their device anyway, one way or another. If Proton offered unencrypted contact syncing, at WORST the user's data would be no more vulnerable than it was before, BUT now it's at least taken off of Big Tech servers, and users would have a smoother experience to make their life a little easier when using Proton.

    If I could put all 10 of my votes here, I would, without hesitation. There are so many features I want for Proton, but all of them are lightyears behind this in importance. In my personal, humble opinion, this feature should be Proton's number 1 priority across ALL of their services.

    I was honestly shocked that this feature wasn't included on release. I thought this was one of the major benefits of having a desktop app in the first place. I keep a lot of things open throughout the day; being able to reduce some taskbar clutter would be fantastic.

    The lack of app locking and presumably local encryption is the sole reason I do not use the desktop mail app; I use Proton Mail exclusively in my browser, which I have set to clear all browsing data on exit. I don't like the idea of having my email account unlocked all the time. I would love to see local encryption implemented for the desktop mail app.

    If Proton goes this route, I hope they do so by acquiring and integrating OnlyOffice rather than starting from scratch.

    I agree that acquiring OnlyOffice rather than starting from scratch would be the way to go if Proton ends up adding office services to their suite.

    However, OnlyOffice is quite functional on its own, and free to use. I use OnlyOffice and Proton Drive desktop together quite seamlessly. I don't know anything about OnlyOffice's collaboration functionality, though; individuals who need collaboration may know something I don't that makes Proton integration more important.

    Proton Contacts is not currently feasible for everyday use on mobile. It is very difficult to access contacts in the mail app, particularly for users that have a lot of folders and tags, and the lack of integration with your device contacts means you cannot access your Proton contacts in any of your calling or messaging apps, which defeats the purpose of having a contacts list. Please improve Proton Contacts!

    I feel like a much better use of Proton's resources would be to make improvements to Proton Bridge where needed, and make it more obvious to less-tech-savvy users that web apps are an option.

    I could be wrong, but I would guess that many of the 3000+ votes in support of this feature would be perfectly content with a progressive web app, which Proton Mail, Calendar, and Drive already support, it just isn't obvious to the less tech-savvy user. All Proton needs to do to rectify this is add a button to the web client itself that says "Install to desktop" and call it a day.

    There are definitely some things that a true desktop app would be great for, but with excellent web app support already in place, and Proton Bridge as an option, the added value of a desktop app, in my opinion, would not be worth the cost to develop at this point. I'd rather see Proton focus on getting their current offerings caught up in functionality with competing products.

    I see just as much value for this feature even if one is not sharing their account with anyone.

    Being able to control which files are decrypted on your device would be an excellent security feature. I would love to be able to keep most of my files easily accessible on my desktop while having the option to keep sensitive files encrypted until I need them. There are a number of tools to accomplish this (Cryptomator, Veracrypt, etc.), but it would be fantastic if Proton handled this natively.

    I think OneDrive's personal vault would be the perfect target to imitate.

    I would much rather Proton focus their resources elsewhere. There are numerous well-developed browser options for privacy (Brave, Firefox, Tor, and others). There's not really anything for Proton to add to the browser market.

    Proton's location in Switzerland is a great boon for storing user data, but it's important to understand why that matters. Being in Switzerland does not automatically make a service private and secure. In the case of email, drive, calendar, and passwords, your data is being stored on Proton's servers. Swiss laws protect that data, and that's why their location is a major benefit in those cases. A browser, on the other hand, does not really need to store your data to the cloud, so there's little to no benefit of having a browser based in Switzerland. If you need to sync bookmarks, Brave handles this without storing your data on a server, and for other browsers, it is exceptionally easy to make manual backups. Since privacy focused browsers are open-source, there's no reason to inherently trust a Proton browser more than alternatives, and in fact, there would be a period of time where a new and un-tested Proton browser would pose a risk for users, and would likely lack many of the privacy-protecting features present in mature browsers.

    If Proton got into the browser game, it would draw resources away from their other services, many of which are still grossly behind the competition in terms of features, and it would be a long time before the Proton browser would be really worth using. On top of that, they would be competing in a space where the alternatives are well established and free to use. Creating a browser would be an absolutely terrible business decision.

    I think it's great that Proton is expanding into so many different areas to offer a robust suite to protect all of their users' data, but the goal should not be expansion for expansion's sake. Adding new products before perfecting what they already have would significantly devalue the Proton suite. Quality beats quantity.

    Agreed. I would add kill switch to the list too, especially with how it interacts with split tunnelling.

    Being able to set port forwarding, moderate NAT, split tunneling, and kill switch per profile would greatly reduce the likelihood of human error for people who commonly switch these settings, as well as simply being a huge improvement to the user experience.

    EDIT: I have more thoughts on this. There's one major advantage to the way profiles function now: they are easy to understand. Someone with no tech knowledge whatsoever can probably figure out how to make a profile that suits their needs as long as they at least vaguely understand what a VPN is supposed to do. HOWEVER, there are ways to get the best of both worlds. Create an "Advanced settings" button that expands the list of settings. That way, less tech-savvy users aren't overwhelmed with confusing settings, but more advanced users have greater customizability.
