From our first office in the CERN cafeteria to over 400 team members in 6 offices and remote locations, from initial test users to over 50 million signups, we are proud to keep growing and making privacy available to everyone. #PrivacyByDefault

Earlier we shared that we will be unifying our services into a single ecosystem to serve our Proton community better. The change will touch nearly all our apps and sites. What to expect? Stay tuned to our posts this week for a sneak peek at this work. #PrivacyByDefault

Another Big Tech keynote is coming. Get ready for more privacy-washing. When Big Tech says they care about privacy, what they really mean is that nobody can exploit your data, except them.

Very proud of our Lara Bruseghini and Daniel Huigens who helped discover a whole new class of attacks against OpenPGP libraries and therefore made an important contribution to the security of OpenPGP! 💪 @twisstle
Working with Lara Bruseghini and Daniel Huigens from @ProtonMail we found a new class of attacks against OpenPGP libraries and applications: Key Overwriting (KO) attacks. Full details at: kopenpgp.com/

Protecting privacy and freedom requires more than just technology. Over the years, we’ve been fighting attempts to weaken privacy rights, and creating a competitive internet where privacy-focused services can flourish. (1/3)

Last year, we won an appeal in Swiss court over surveillance laws. We’ve also advocated efforts around the #DMA to curtail Big Tech’s power to dominate the internet, and helped push back attempts to undermine encryption. (2/3)

It's not just the App Store — the Google Play Store also levies a 30% tax on the internet, and most of the developing world uses Android. It is time to rein in Big Tech's abusive, monopolistic practices.
Replying to @slashdot
Apple’s store is like having a 30% tax on the Internet. Definitely not ok.

When we first launched ProtonMail, our servers were overloaded in 2 days, and we had to triple our capacity in the first month. Your unwavering enthusiasm still drives us, and your creative recommendations always make us happy. So we decided to do something special today. (1/2)
