A Note of Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to the ProtonMail community in America!  We hope you are having a happy and safe reunion with dear friends and family.  For the rest of us, the holiday season is just around the corner!

On this special day, we would like to thank our early adopters and supportive community.  It has been 6 months since ProtonMail launched in Beta and we could not have gone this far without your support.  For the over 10,000 contributors who helped us raise $500,000 in July, you have been our lifeline over the past few months.  The resources have allowed us to work full time to add new features, install new servers, and continue to grow the ProtonMail team.


All contributors should have received an invite email and contributors with T-shirt perks should have received those by now.  The only perks left to be fulfilled are ProtonMail Mobile, which we hope to release early next year, and ProtonMail+, which will automatically upgrade your accounts when we roll out of Beta.  If you are a contributor and haven’t received your perks, please email us at indiegogo@protonmail.ch.

At ProtonMail, we believe everyone should have the right to privacy whether they can afford it or not.  This is why we have worked nonstop to scale up our systems and bring ProtonMail to people around the world.  Today, we are sending out over 10,000 new invites from the front of our waiting list.  And to make ProtonMail more useable, all accounts will have at least 500 MB of storage space from now on!  For those still waiting (some since June), we hope to be able to send a lot more invites in the next several weeks and release a system that will allow you, our early adopters, to share ProtonMail with your dear friends and family.

Happy Holidays,

The ProtonMail Team

  • And thanks goes out to you ProtonMail who without we would have no recourse, no options. You are the first to listen and take us seriously, then take the steps necessary to fill the void.
    ProtonMail founders and Dev’s have plenty to be proud of, and dont doubt for a second that the ProtonMail community is this year thankful for you all, all of you who dedicate so much. PeAcE

  • Still selling T-Shirts would be an awesome idea. I would love one and would be glad to pay for it. They won’t make you rich quick but it is great for those of us that love what you do and allows us to show our pride and support. Host them on Ebay ?

  • Muchas gracias por la invitación.. Estoy implantando un blog y comenzare a utilizar dicha cuenta la cual estoy seguro me simplificara y entregara la privacidad que necesito.

  • I’m really happy & thankful for the ProtonMail devs who tirelessly worked to create an email srvc that makes privacy their #1 priority!! Thanx again,

  • How long does it usually takes for an invitiation email ? I send my request week ago I know people are waiting for months, Im just curious what is the mean-wating time.
