Protonmail is best known as the maintainers of the encryption library. There have been some concerns with their service. We do not currently recommend them.

Protonmail is a honeypot. Visit their onion address on TOR (https://protonirockerxow.onion/). Try to sign up for a new account. They will switch you from the onion address to their clear net address. This is standard honeypot operating procedure.

They got a college friend who created "" to do their official security audit. that's so fucking funny. I thought these guys were supposed to act in a corporate way?

So much for private. They want phone numbers, another email address, etc. Why? Are they tracking all these things? I didnt even have to do all that when I originally signed up for gmail. Seems like PM is becoming more like gmail.

They worked at CERN, so they are trustworthy. Good enough for me.

I was much attracted to the security and privacy of Protonmail (PM). Unfortunately, it fails to deliver as yet. One big problem with end-to-end encryption is that it makes searching the content of one's e-mails impossible (since they are encrypted on the server). This is why it's imperative to have integration with a desktop client (which would allow such searching of one's locally saved messages). PM has sought to do that with The Bridge. Unfortunately, it works terribly. I have wrestled for over a month trying to get the Bridge to work with Thunderbird. I have not succeeded. The needed integration (either between Thunderbird and the Bridge, or between the Bridge and the PM servers) is very poor, making for a very frustrating user experience. In fact, Thunderbird (on either Windows or a Mac) is unusable with PM in my experience. I have regularly documented the problems to PM support (with detailed messages, screenshots, logs, etc.), but the changes they make to the Bridge are very slow and, to date, of very limited effectiveness. In addition, the response of PM Support is very slow and sporadic. (I am a PLUS, that is, paying, customer of PM.) If you are looking for end-to-end encrypted e-mail that plays nicely with a desktop client, I'm sorry to say that PM is not yet a good choice.

I've signed up with PM about a week ago. I tried fee subscription for 2 days, then took the bait. I paid for a full year. I've been trying for several days to get PM to work with Thunderbird to no avail "server time out" even after changing the timeout value to 2000 as suggested by PM. I'm thinking of cancelling and requesting a full refund.

"promises" to open source software "promises" to open source software. Doesn't. Promises again. anti-privacy: recaptcha. anti-security: requires prior email address data mining: encourages IRL mobile number association Mercurial response about AutoCrypt integration. Less horrible CS than tutanota

Very happy with the mail service. Has been reliable and I value the security and privacy. I have only used web and Android client so can't comment on desktop experience. I did have some weird issues at one point but working well now. I did have a free account with additional storage as I was an early adopter. I do now pay as I want to support the service (my free space was more than adequate), however I do think the price maybe too high. I bought when a deal was running. At the moment there are few alternatives that I would trust my mail with. The biggest issue is that your mail is compromised by all the other insecure services other people you converse with use. I wish more people would use secure email.

I like Protonmail because my friend is using it. It works just fine for me.

I have been trying for 3 weeks (6 emails - they take a while to respond) to get a refund, and still haven't received it.

Protonmail sells a judicious and secure brand, the service is good, except for a malicious sales policy. I explain: I have a Proton email since 2017, almost 3 years of use. Service has several qualities such as encryption and well tested iOS app. The problem is that to monetize the service - which is understandable, they started forcing the bar on a premium subscription for me. I, like many of the users of the platform earned in Brazilian reais, and everything I buy in dollars is very expensive. It would be ok to pay if I needed any of the premium services, but that was not the case. Well ... all of a sudden - my email started to warn that I had "exceeded" the cloud space limit and needed an upgrade. And I could neither receive nor send more emails until I made such an upgrade. Stay with me, it will have an outcome ... I researched a lot, made calls to friends who have proton and read for hours to make a decision. I really needed to keep my email working. Give it up. I signed paying half of a Brazilian minimum wage in credits to release my email and ... when the storage counter updated I had not 5 gb spent but 500 mb! Then I understand the trap ... It seems that the storage counter only "updates" when they want and they use it to force the signature ... That's too bad character and I would like a sincere and honest answer from you . As I said, I rack up a lot of praise about the service, I must have nominated more than 10 music developers, designers and producers I worked with ... But I am extremely frustrated with this result. You can, I'm sure, do better than that.
