Getting started with Proton is a simple procedure that takes a couple of minutes. You can usually do this anonymously without the need to provide us with an email address or phone number (although in some cases we may require human verification to prevent abuse).
ProtonMail offers free email addresses and accounts to ensure everyone has the opportunity to use the most secure email service available.
You can use register for your free address here:
Free encrypted email service
Your email address will be used as your identifier to send and receive secure emails for years to come. Your emails will automatically use end-to-end encryption when communicating with other Proton users and you have the option to encrypt the emails for non-ProtonMail recipients as well.
All messages in your ProtonMail mailbox are stored with zero-access encryption. This means we cannot read any of your messages or hand them over to third parties. Subject lines and recipient/sender email addresses are encrypted, but not end-to-end encrypted.
Protect your online privacy
For increased security, you can use the email expiry feature to set an expiry date for all the emails that you send.
With a free email account, you can also receive emails to an unlimited number of aliases by using a “+” symbol after your username in your email address.
ProtonMail does not serve third-party ads, so we rely on donations and our users upgrading to premium plans in order to fund our service. If you want to support ProtonMail and enjoy access to premium features (such as the ability create multiple email addresses, or even use a custom email address if you have your own custom domain) please consider upgrading to a paid plan.
If you already have an account and want to create an additional address, please see Aliases and addresses.
