ProtonMail BETA v1.14 Release Notes

We’re excited to announce the release of ProtonMail v1.14! With this new update, you will notice that we’ve implemented a number of important usability improvements to ProtonMail. As usual, if you encounter any problems, please clear your browser cache or log out and log back in. Here’s a quick introduction to the new features:

Sending/Receiving from ProtonMail.com

All ProtonMail accounts now support sending and receiving from both ProtonMail.ch and ProtonMail.com domains. This means that you can send/receive mail as [username]@protomail.ch OR [username]@protonmail.com. To choose which email to use when sending, it’s easy as choosing from the dropdown menu from the compose page next to the “From” box. You can go into settings to set which email you would like to serve as your default email address for outgoing emails. For a more detailed explanation, please check our knowledge base article.


New Homepage Design / Login on Homepage

ProtonMail New Home

Did you notice our homepage has a completely new look? We’ve put some effort into redesigning the homepage to be more usable and accessible – now we’re happy to finally unveil the new design to you. With this latest update, you can now login to ProtonMail directly from the front page! We’ve also made navigation throughout the website easier so you can get to the page you want faster. In addition to these usability improvements, we’ve also created new informative pages about the benefits of using ProtonMail and our security features.


New Blog Design

In addition to the homepage, we redesigned our blog too. You will notice that we’ve improved readability quite a bit and made the blog a bit more pleasing to the eye. We’ve put a lot of thought into how to best format our blog posts and now it’s easier than ever to browse the ProtonMail blog. The blog now also features thumbnails that help you recognize events and posts.


ProtonMail Knowledge Base
