    Most everyday non techie users want their contacts to sync between their phones and ProtonMail. Just like how eteSync works.

    I understand why ProtonMail Devs are not for this and it is because they want to ensure our data is encrypted and secure weather its on their servers, in transit, and on our devices. Now if they allowed this features our contacts will not be encrypted on our phone making them vulnerable to other apps reading our contacts and if some customer used this feature and third party app got some contact info from their device which was also sycned with their protonmail account they may blame protonmail for failing to secure their contacts.

    I think this feature still can be added it will be disabled by default and when enabled a warning message can appear warning the users that their contacts will sync to the phone address book but not be encrypted.

    And for most people without this feature it kinda makes contacts useless. If I cannot sync my contacts to my phone so I know who is calling then I better stick with Etesync.

    This can be with the bridge, but I will like this for the web client and mobile apps.

    This is huge for privacy. Humans make mistakes and you have an account with two aliases such as...

    cyberguy227@protonmail.com
    johndoe@protonmail.com

    And if cyberguy227 is your personal email while johndoe is your work email you do not want to send an email to a coworker with your cyberguy227 by accident because you forgot to change the sender address.

    Maybe instead of adding a setting for each contact, instead use contact groups where you can create a group called cyberguy227 and johndoe, and you add contacts to those groups.

    This will be possible with the mobile apps and web interface where it will not send if the email is apart of the wrong group. For the bridge however it maybe possible by adding this feature but instead the email can be sent but before it is sent off, ProtonMail servers will check to see if the email contact is dedicated with the sender email alias and if not it will not send the email out and send the email back saying it was rejected.

    I am against this. If you want the best of Protonmail you gotta pay for it. If Protonmail keeps giving free stuff then it could not sustain itself. I like free apps and services too but the worst thing to see is for an app or service to be discontinued or no more.

    There are so many messaging apps I don't think this would be very popular if Proton Messanger was a thing unlike secure email which ProtonMail is one of the few options out there.

    If you want a good secure messaging app that is based on phone numbers use Signal. Its free, open source, and has all most of the features WhatsApp offers and a few more extra features like self destructing messages.

    If you want a good secure messaging app that is based on accounts (Not email or phone number) use Wire. It Swiss made and is a lot like WhatsApp with messaging and video call. You can think of it as a secure version of Skype. To sign up you do need to give them a email or phone number but the other users you chat with will not see your email or phone number and they will only see your username and name but adding your name is optional. I recommend signing up on your desktop and not on mobile and sign up with your email so that way if you forget your password you can easily reset your password via email.

    And there are so many other ones out there I can list but I have used many of them and these two I mentioned is what I used.

    There already many alternatives browsers out there. Brave is probably the best one so far and is only getting better with the new features.

    Also if Proton Browser becomes a thing it may cost money to use which I don't blame ProtonMail for charging users to use it browser but don't expect this to be free.

    And a huge debate over it is what engine the browser will use, Firefox engine, Chromium engine or make its own. And to make your own engine for a web browser is a lot of work and needs to always be tweaked since it will need to be up to date with all the newest HTML, CSS & JavaScript code.

    This is the most wanted feature I would like to see myself. I would give it 10 votes if I could.

    This may not work on iOS but I know it can work on Andriod since I have seen apps on Google Play that allow you to run web servers so you can run PHP files just like XAMPP.

    A downside to this is it could drain the battery and a way to reduce it is to have a setting were it will not scan for incoming email constantly but instead scan for incoming email every 5 minutes or 10 minutes. I use the Aquamail app on Andriod and I have it set to only scan every 5 minutes for emails.
