    It will be amazing if this happens and if you can choose what fields are synced to your phone contacts. I would like to keep my email, addresses and notes within ProtonMail but to sync the name and phone number to my phone contacts will be amazing!

    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.

    Please use a generic subject name such as "Encrypted email from ProtonMail". Right now encrypted emails will leak the subject which is considered metadata.
