ProtonMail Android App

The ProtonMail Android Application provides the ease of use of ProtonMail’s Web app in the palm of your hands. Custom built from the ground up, the mobile application truly makes privacy the default without compromising on user experience. Stay up to date with push notifications and easily read, respond, and organize all your messages.

ProtonMail releases tests all updates for the application with our dedicated Mobile Beta group. This group gets access to the latest features and interfaces directly with the ProtonMail team playing a distinct role in the continued success of ProtonMail’s development.

You can also visit ProtonMail on most Android devices, through an updated browser.

ProtonMail with a third party mail application

At this time Protonmail does not integrate with third party email clients (IMAP/SMTP) on Android due to the technology ProtonMail utilizes within web browsers to encrypt and decrypt your messages.

We also have a dedicated iOS app if you have an iOS device.

    I currently have used an app called Native Wrap to create a pseudo Protonmail app. It works well but I’m anxiously awaiting the native app.

    can’t paste clipboard content into email message, using Firefox mobile for Android

    Chris, ‘Native Wrap’ is, according to their web site:

    ‘funded in part by the National Security Agency’

    Would be great if the eventual native apps for iOS/Play Store, would store content on phones encrypted so that it assumes the device is hostile. Login to app decrypts content for viewing. Maybe this is just a given anyway? im no expert.

    Using a third party app to access a secure email app more conveniently defeats the entire purpose, like using 3rd party company keychains to remember passwords and you know little to nothing about the providers of the keychain except for what they publicize. Wait for a native app from the company itself, otherwise you should be happy with Gmail.

    I am curious to know if the Android app will also run on a BlackBerry. Anyone knows?

    I have a JOLLA phone which supports android apps, but I can not download the apps in google play because JOLLA does not have a working google play. So can i download the app directly from your site?


    Summer of 2015 came and went!!

    The app was released in Summer 2015, but in beta:

    Do you have an ETA on a Google Play Store version at this point?

  13. Z

    Will this be available on F-Droid, or at least usable without having Google Apps installed?

    Tested in my Blackberry Passport, seems to work, the app asked me to install Google Apps, but I told No and worked, sent and email.

    Was looking for Proton on F-Droid too, unfortunately no package available.

    Why protonmail use playservice?

  17. ProtonMail Support

    At this time, we utilize Google Play services to implement the push notifications. We will try to find other ways to support push notifications in the future.

    All Android ProtonMail users want an apk. They all hate Google LOL

    Apps without the store

    As others have mentioned, being able to get the mobile app through sources other then the App Store and Play Store is important to many in your target audience, as is being able to verify (through things like checksum) the received app.

    I think charging for the app is an absolutely appropriate thing to do! That said, (a) I’d actually prefer the stable version (i.e. not the beta) and (b) I don’t want it to be limited, in other words if I like it, I want to be able to recommend it to my friends. Your current model is shooting yourself in the foot.

    Please make it easy to buy a verifiable, stable-version of the mobile apps (I have a bias toward Android’s APKs 😉 😉 ) without going through vendor stores and without quantity or time-limitations.

    I have a Samsung Note 4, I use LastPass Premium. On my desktop, LastPass logs me in including the mailbox password, so all good. But, on my phone, Lastpass won’t feed the mailbox password. Does anyone have a solution? I’m heading on over to LastPass to ask the same question. Thought I’d leave this here just in case anyone finds it helpful or knows already and feels like sharing the solution they know of.

    At this moment the Password Managers are working for the login password only.

    Hi there, I agree with K’s comment: is there any way to install Protonmail from an .apk? Or, even better, any chance to get an official release on markets such as Aptoide and F-Droid?

  23. Yatin

    I hope your app is also available in Silent Circle’s app store (so it works with Blackphone2 etc phones)

    Came across this page while trying to suss out whether there was a way to install the app without Google Play Store – just like a bunch of other people here, I’d love it if there was an APK available for manual download, or if it was on F-Droid. Hope you will provide such an option (soon) 🙂

    If you are a beta user, you can also download our Android application through Crashlytics. For more information please visit this link:
    We will consider making the application available on F-Droid in the future.

    I don’t have Google Play on my Android (Cyanogemod). Where can I download the Protonmail *.apk for installation?

    You can sign up for mobile beta and receive our Android app through Crashlytics:
