In the past month, we have been listening to your feedback and working hard to bring you these highly requested new features!
No longer do you have to remember your login and mailbox password to securely access your encrypted email, now you can unlock your messages with a touch of a finger. Your fingerprint is one of the best passcodes in the world. It’s always with you, and no two are exactly alike. To learn more about how to turn on TouchID, please visit this tutorial.
PIN Code Protection
For added security, you can require a PIN code to access your inbox through the application. This four digit code can be added on it’s own or in addition to TouchID. TouchID will be the default protection, but can be cancelled to allow access through the PIN code.
Auto Lock Setting
Now you can protect your encrypted messages from being compromised if your device falls into the wrong hands. Set your ProtonMail app to automatically lock every time you open the app, or after a set amount of time.
Attachments from iCloud & other third party storage apps
Send attachments from where they are stored. Now you can add quickly and conveniently add attachments from iCloud and other third party storage apps directly to your messages.
