Importing Contacts into ProtonMail

In ProtonMail v1.11 and up, we support the importing of your existing email contacts from other email service providers (ESPs).

The process takes just a few minutes and is outlined here:

Export contacts from Gmail

1. Log in to Gmail.
2. Go to the “Contacts” page.

import_contacts1
Click the “Gmail dropdown” button right above the “Compose” button. Choose “Contacts” from the dropdown menu.

3. Click “Export”.

import_contacts2
On the Contacts page, click the “more” button. Choose “Export” from the dropdown menu.

4. Choose a format.

import_contacts3
Choose the format you want to export. We recommend Outlook format.

Once you have exported your contacts to a file, visit your ProtonMail Contacts page to import your contacts.

We only have a guide for Gmail for now. We will update this post with additional ESP later.
