Thanks for recommending us, @BretWeinstein ! And on a side note - sending end-to-end encrypted messages to your non-ProtonMail contacts is actually very easy with our built-in solution: protonmail.com/support/knowl…
Do we know what is up with Signal? For those looking for a secure communication backup plan I strongly recommend ProtonMail and Wire Given what’s afoot you should set up all three & establish redundant contacts *Protonmail is only secure when emailing other Protonmail accounts

The UN is calling on citizens in #Myanmar to document crimes against humanity, and ProtonVPN is widely used for this. Unfortunately, Apple blocked ProtonVPN security updates last week, hindering human right efforts: protonvpn.com/blog/apple-blo…

In the fight for freedom and democracy, secure communication is critical. ProtonMail is free for everyone, encrypted, and recommended by the UN for documenting human rights abuses in Myanmar. People of Myanmar, we stand with you. Please stay safe.

The Microsoft Exchange hack is a serious breach and demonstrates why we need a new approach to email security. At ProtonMail we use zero-access encryption, which ensures user data stays encrypted, even in the event of a breach. protonmail.com/blog/microsof…

Thanks @Gizmodo for the shoutout! We also suggest giving beta.protonmail.com/?utm_cam… a try - we suspect you’ll like the design and UI changes.
All the reasons I switched to ⁦@ProtonMail⁩ for personal use are in here. Email addresses are super sticky but a transition over time is definitely possible. gizmodo.com/5-reasons-to-dit…

With ProtonMail, only you have access to your data. But your security is only as strong as your password. For peace of mind, we recommend using a strong password and safely backing it up with a password manager like KeePass. Which password manager are you using, and why?

For this International Women's Day, we honor Radia Perlman. In 1985, Perlman invented the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), an early building block of web infrastructure. She holds approximately 100 patents in encryption, decryption, and routing. Happy #IWD2021!

The web browser you choose can have a dramatic impact on your overall online privacy. That's why we made it possible to specify which browser opens the links in your emails in our ProtonMail iOS app. Go to Settings > App Settings and set the browser you trust as default.

Did you know that you can have a shorter email address, too? Set up your user@pm.me email address in less than one minute. It works just like your user@protonmail.com, but it's Shorter Better Faster Easier. :)
