Introducing the new ProtonMail website

Earlier this week, we launched our brand new homepage which can now be found at protonmail.com. Since launching ProtonMail 2.0 in August, our team is now hard at work on ProtonMail 3.0 which is scheduled to launch by the end of this year. While ProtonMail 2.0 was a significant improvement over ProtonMail 1.0, we consider it to be more evolutionary than revolutionary. It is only with ProtonMail 3.0 that we will be completely revolutionizing the ProtonMail experience.

With ProtonMail 3.0, the look and feel of ProtonMail will be completely changing. Very influential in these changes is feedback that we received from the ProtonMail community, such as the inbox design poll we conducted earlier this year. With 3.0, we will be adopting a new design aesthetic inspired by Swiss architecture which emphasizes a modern and clean look. Our new homepage was designed following our new style guide and gives a hint for what is to come.

Functionality wise, the new website resembles the old site, but there are a few important changes. First, you might have noticed the language selector in the upper right. Currently, only English is available, but we are now working on translating the site and hope to offer it soon in a wide range of languages to suit ProtonMail’s international userbase. As the world’s largest secure email provider, our users today come from over 120 countries which shows that encrypted email and privacy are ideas that cross borders. We hope to eventually translate the site into enough languages to cover the vast majority of our userbase.

We have also taken this opportunity to showcase on our site a couple unique aspects of ProtonMail. On our homepage, we now provide a sneak peek at the ultra high security datacenter which houses ProtonMail’s infrastructure. Very few of our users know that ProtonMail’s servers are hidden deep in the Swiss alps under 1000 meters of rock in one of the world’s most secure datacenters. Running our own infrastructure and networks is one of the extra levels of protection we have put in place to increase security. In the near future, we will be releasing more details about our datacenter and giving users an exclusive look at ProtonMail’s infrastructure.

Finally, we have also done a long overdue update of our About page. The team at ProtonMail is one of the most important aspects and we have grown a lot since our CERN days. We are lucky to have a very diverse and talented team which has allowed us to accomplish a lot with few people in very little time. We are proud to finally show some of the new members of our team. Thanks to their hard work and your support, we are making private email a reality. If you would like to support this project, feel free to send us a donation, your help allows us to build faster and build more features. And stay tuned for ProtonMail 3.0, and please let us know what you think about our new homepage and blog design in the comments!

Best Regards,
The ProtonMail Team

      • You should consider crowdsourcing the translation. A platform of your size should easily attract lots of people that can help. That being said, I can help with German and Dutch (bilingual).

      • I can help with translations to German and Greek.

        The ProtonMail team redefined secure email, it’s time for us to give back by taking some load off of them.

  • This blog post should have come out three days BEFORE you changed to .com.
    No notice. No support.

  • I’m a user from the first minute of Protonmail’s life.
    We have made a long way so far, and with Protonmail 3.0 we will make a big leap toward the perfection :-)
    Compliments to all of you guys.

    • The page looks great, but there is an issue with the: app.protonmail.ch site… The top menu pointer to the blog sends users to a non existent page. Only the bottom blog link works. Please check the URL pointer. Wishing you continued success.

  • Hello,

    The space offered by you is very less. If you can figure out a way to provide something 100GB of space and data reliability, I will be able to move my email accounts to protonmail.
    An added bonus would be if we can create several email ids under a custom domain which we buy.

    thanks

  • Thanks very much for continuing to make ProtonMail awesome. I’m enjoying my experience here and have never regretted moving fully to this service. Now I mostly look forward to seeing the mobile app and having a paid upgraded account when you finally launch that (hopefully in the near future).

  • New UI/UX is wonderful. Love the color scheme. I feel like the screen where you decrypt your inbox could use a different background. Even a white-ish background would look sleek. All my opinion, keep up the good work! Thank you for Proton Mail.

  • Is ProtonMail still only work with ProtonMail email addresses, or can I configure a Gmail address, for example?

  • Hey guys!

    Love the work so far, keep it up! :-)

    I have some experience with English -> French translation and am willing to help you guys with that, should you need any more hands! Don’t hesitate to reach out!

    Also, are you planning to allow the inbox to be organized in conversations? This is the last step that prevents me from making ProtonMail my main and only mailbox.

    Thanks a lot!

  • Well done fellows.
    Tons of respect.
    There are a lot of people out there,
    who love you guys out of respect,
    for who you are,
    and for what you made possible for them.

  • Everything looks fantastic. So glad to see the way everything just keeps getting better. Was worried originally, but it looks like you guys sure are going in the right direction!

  • when you enter the mailbox decryption password, if entered wrong it shows wrong decryption password, does it mean it checks for the password stored somewhere.

    • We can tell if the decryption password is wrong because it is used to decrypt your private key, and if the decrypted private key is garbage, then the front end code knows the wrong password was entered (but it doesn’t know what is the right password).

  • thanks for your perfect webmail !
    could you reach 10Go as a free space ?? it will be ideal for small profesionnal and personnal use .
    good luck !
