  • Hello,
    Is there a timeout on the PIN lock feature (automatic complete logout after several minutes/hours) ?
    If not, the mailbox could potentially only be protected by a 4 digit code as long as the device stays ON…
    Thank you
    Regards

  • I have an idea for future upgrates.

    Is it possible to set the time for sending emails ?

    Many times you write an email and want to send the email to a different time.

  • Hello,
    Can we have a more complete security explaination like we have for the backend of Protonmail website?
    Like, how the PIN digit works? Is this an encryption or just a “low” security measure to prevent indiscreet people.

    • It’s not an extra encryption, just an additional way to lock your account on mobile if you don’t want to sign out all the time.

  • Hello,
    this is just a general question:
    when you will add a optional PGP encryption?
    It would be really nice. Because then its possible to send encrypted e-mails also to people who dont use protonmail.

  • This is great, but an even better option would be to be able to get our other (non-encrypted) email accounts on the same app (and a desktop client too). Is this possible ?

    Thanks, this is great. An even better option would be to be able to have our other email accounts (non-encrypted) on the same app. Would it be possible ?

    And still waiting for the desktop client.

    Thanks !

  • THANK YOU, for your good works, time and resources and we are grateful!
    I have watched a great dimming of the “Net” during this last decade as entire global areas of communication and exchange for tens, then hundreds of millions were abandoned or transformed into more limited and heavily marketed data mining organizations, whatever the flavor.
    I have seen this new ‘Surveillance Profitability’ business model grow rarely checked into something that now restricts not only open communication, or innovation, but also our creativity, curiosities and the expression of our opinions. Restricts our expectations, and our respective freedoms. The importance of widely adopting more privacy oriented software and policies has never been more important. Thank you again.

  • Wonderful app to have. Thanks a bunch to the development team.

    Can I get the app from any place other than Google play? Google play is not freedom respecting.
    f-droid.org would be a nice place to get it from.
    Thanks.

  • The 3 features I am the most waiting for are online storage (Google Drive-type), Calendar integration and Chat, pretty much in that order. Any idea of if and when such features could appear?

    • Hi Philippe,
      Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, we do not have fixed date for these features. We are planning to implement them in the future.
