  • Hey,

    Just a quick question, after getting the iPhone app beta i decided to convert my Apple account email to my ProtonMail account, now unfortunately i am unable to update to the new beta.

    Who shall i email?

    Many Thanks
    Chris Goguelin

  • If we signed up for version 1.0.8 and are currently using it, will it update to this new version on our iPhone?


  • Hey Protonmail,

    Been using the beta mobile app for a few weeks now. Overall all seems to work really fine, cool.
    But I have an issue with the “delicate” low-contrast font, and second that you chose to make
    the “subject” the primary as supposed to “who sent this mail”, where the font size is micro!

    At a glance, this makes it difficult to get a quick overview on what emails are important!

    I understand the app is in beta, but are there any plans to make it an option to increase font size, contrast and maybe chose the primary to be from who sent the email, rather than the subject, which makes it cluttered at a glance!

    Keep up the good work, love the service..


  • Donated to support the beta app.
    I’m already a beta tester for iOS9
    When will I be able to start using at Protonmail app?
    Thanks so much.

  • Hi, I’ve made a donation and contacted you by email and still have no answer for the beta… When will you be able to send me the invite with TestFlight ?

    • The invites go out on Thursday nights, you should have it by tomorrow morning. If you have sent us an email, we will reply, it sometimes takes 1-2 days due to the number of emails we receive.

  • Tech Crunch reported that Apple was unhelpful in assisting on a project that would give China citizens free speech tools. blamed Apple’s connections to the U.S. government. Don’t have time to lay hands on the article now, perhaps others can find it. Now, Apple is a bit of an impediment to v1.0.9. Apple may be acting appropriately in both cases. I don’t know. But Apple should know we are observing them and expecting the best from them with regard to privacy.

  • Hello,

    in the german magazin was the secure test of mail.
    protonmail, was the best.

    So, I will have protonmail too.

    But, I don’t understand the text in english right.

    Can you the english sentence take in german sentence?

    How many cost the account? For a good account, I would pay for this.

    From which date, you give me an email account?
    I must change my old account. The contract is end in 12 days.

    best wishes

  • I got my invite, installed it on my BlackBerry z30., but cannot connect add it to hub. Help! I am trying to maintain double security, by using PM exclusively on the BB.

  • I appreciate what you do to keep the privacy in the internet! And all this for free !
    I cant wait for the Proton Mail app for IOS!
    I’ll donate soon!

  • You’re moving too slow, guys! You’ve already made 9 updates in beta, please release it for all already. I can’t wait to ditch my gmail account.

  • 我來自臺灣,我使用正體中文,我期待有iOS軟體以及中文介面。

  • Made a donation for the iOS beta.

    Still nothing after a week – I have emailed the contact box.

    How long will I have to wait?

  • Was curious why I haven’t received an email within those 1-3 days after donating to opt into the beta for iOS….

  • Just curious about the iPhone depicted in the blog photo above? I don’t recall there ever being an iPhone that looked like that. Trivial I know but curious.
