7 years of Proton

Proton 七歲了!

May 19th, 2021 in Company news, Proton news

我們認為要讓世界變得更美好,必須要先建構一個保護隱私的網際網路。基於這個理念,我們於 2014 年 5 月創建了 ProtonMail。 今日,在 ProtonMail 問世 7 週年之際,我們想回顧這個歷程並感謝一路上幫助我們取得今天成就的所有人。 Proton是由相聚於 CERN 的科學家共同創建。CERN 是全球資訊網(World Wide Web)的誕生地,也是孕育Proton的搖籃。 在過去 7 年裡,隨著人們選擇 ProtonMail、ProtonVPN 和其他 Proton 產品來保護自身隱私,我們的規模也急速增長。ProtonMail 在2014 年時,仍被視作小眾產品,因為當時「打造隱私優先的網際網路」被認為是一個瘋狂的想法。但這個理念在今天卻似乎已成為一種共識。 我們認為人們對隱私權態度的轉變將使世界變得更美好,而我們也自豪 Proton 及我們的社群自始一路引領這個趨勢變革。 若要用字面詮釋,Proton 為人類而生,也依人類為生。 那場結果超乎預期的群眾募資以及你們在過去 7 年的持續支持造就了今日的我們 ──  Proton 不斷茁壯,並打造了更多專注於保護隱私的新服務,包括 ProtonVPN、Proton Calendar 和 Proton Drive。 我們一同更活躍於談論隱私權,例如提倡注重保護隱私的服務、對大型科技公司和政府監控提出質疑,並呼籲各界制定更完善的資料保護法。 有你們同在,我們也能一起重建網際網路,讓網路用戶重新掌握自身的資料分享權。 繼續向理想邁進 今日,已有超過 5000 萬人註冊 Proton 的服務,印證隱私權正逐漸成為主流價值。 如果沒有 Proton 社群擁護隱私,這一切都不可能發生。 然而,我們還有許多任務在身。 現在,仍然有數十億人在使用沒有保障用戶核心利益的網際網路,他們的資料仍被用於謀取利益。 …
