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 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?

  7. Marco

    Good moorning,

    Thanks a lot fo your help

  8. biteater

    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!!

  11. ProtonMail Support

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

  12. TB

    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?

  14. George

    ====> Francois

    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.

  15. s

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

  16. Carmine

    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.

  21. ProtonMail Support

    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)

  25. K

    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) 🙂

  26. ProtonMail Support

    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.

    Many thanks for that awesome work guys.
    Switching to ProtonMail was part of a global move to leave the G-ecosystem away. Therefore, I dare jumping in the coach and kindly ask for a FDroid apk. Have you any idea when such a good move could occur?
    Keep on the good work of keeping our digital lives safe.

  28. Michael

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

  29. ProtonMail Support

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

    I might give them a try. I hope it would also work for me.

  31. DoubleMalt

    When will the ProtonMail App come to the F-Droid App store?

    As a privacy oriented service, there definitely should be a version that does not rely on Google Play Services.

  32. ProtonMail Support

    We cannot give you an ETA for this yet. The source code still needs polishing before it can be released as open-source.

  33. Tobias

    If I add my ProtonMail account to TypeApp, wich is an Android e-mail client, are my messages and inbox still safe and secured by ProtonMail?

  34. ProtonMail Support

    ProtonMail cannot be used with other email apps on Android. Please use our dedicated Android app.

    Above, I read:

    “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.”

    Should I get my hopes up at the “at this time”?

    I love the ProtonMail concept and its encryption possibilities (albeit slightly useless most of the time as most of my contacts use Gmail anyways), and I really appreciate the clean web layout and the fact ProtonMail allows users to pay for their services with money instead of data.

    However for professional purposes, I’m syncing two separate (Zimbra) exchange accounts to Android and obviously I’m not in the position to make the whole company switch to ProtonMail.

    So far I’ve been using my ISP’s e-mail services for personal purposes, importing all three accounts together in a third party mail app (K9), which allows me to just quickly check a combined inbox every once in a while. The only thing that stops me from using ProtonMail at the moment, is being forced to use yet another app (or web interface) to view and send e-mails. I don’t like a cluttered home screen!

    Any chance ProtonMail will either integrate with third party email clients via an Android version of The Bridge, or allow the use of other, less secure accounts (e.g. exchange/IMAP) *within* the ProtonMail app? Signal, for example, is a secure messager by itself, but it also allows the sending and receiving of non-secure text messages. I think when using the app, it’s quite clear (color coded!) which is which, so using a non-encrypted in ProtonMail shouldn’t necessarily cause confusion either.

    I installed PM on my android phone. I’d like to turn off all notifications on my phone for PM….but each time I do so in “settings”, it does NOT remain ‘OFF’. As soon as another email arrives, it notifies me in both sound and vibration….which I don’t need it to do. How do I shut the notifications OFF PERMANENTLY?

  39. ProtonMail Support

    To turn off push notifications completely, go to Settings > Background Sync and turn sync off.

  40. Charmaine

    I can log on to protonmail website via a browser but not on android. With android in inbox and other folders it said can’t connect, I kept retrying but it wouldn’t connect. Had been working previously, hadn’t received any email for a few days. I uninstalled and reinstalled, that didn’t work. I updated the app, but then couldn’t sign in, with same error message “can’t connect”. It’s not the phones connection, because banking and another email app are working on the phone. Is there a folder or file I need to delete, or something after uninstalling, then reinstall? Or maybe there was maintenance work?

    Using the Android app, I don’t want to quote the prior email when I reply it.
    It’s OK for webmail or mail clients but a bit inconvenient for my mobile phone because messages could be too long.
    Can I turn it off?
    Or do I have to delete quoted messages every time?

  43. ProtonMail Support

    At the moment, there is no option to not quote the previous message when replying. To delete the reply, you will have to do it manually.

  44. Jordi

    Is there a way of having two inboxes/addresses within the same installation of the Android app?

  45. ProtonMail Support

    The mobile apps do not have support for logging in with multiple accounts at this time.
