Password Managers

For improved email security, ProtonMail as built in support for the following three Password Managers: LastPass, KeePass, and 1Password. Below, we will show you how to configure them to work with ProtonMail. Other password managers may also work, but we did not test them extensively.

One of the benefits of using a password manager is the ability to create a different password for every different account you have on the internet. This ensures that if any one password is ever compromised, all your other accounts will remain secure. In addition, password managers let your brain take a break from password memorization, allowing you to create much more complex passwords since they are all stored in a central location off your human hard drive.

Using a password manager is a healthy step toward ensuring you are keeping your internet accounts secure. Every ProtonMail account has two passwords: a login password and a mailbox password, which can make using a password manager a bit more tricky than a typical internet login. We try to make the process as seamless as possible, including a dedicated password manager button on the login screens of the mobile application to allow “one click login.”

    Maybe you ProtonMail could start “ProtonPassword Manager” that would be cool and secure and awesome and I’d be willing to pay $35.00 a year perhaps with a mail account also!.

    While you’re at it, if you could add support for the Apple Keychain, that’d cover you for both MacOS *and* iOS. Twofer! Plus the number of endusers is pretty vast.

    Thanks for providing such an interesting service. You folks are amazing!

    How do I change/update the stored “login” password. UGH! For that matter, how do I change/update either the login or mail password. THIS IS SUCH A inferior UI. My God, it’s 2018 PRotonmail, get “with it”. The UI is horrible. No, terrible. No, amateurish!

    I hope this works, been targeted by a token ring since 03-2011. It’s a true nightmare. I diligently fought for my rights by gov’t agencies and private sector and got exactly zero done. Please, be that real 100. Could use the help.

    I still can’t login to my account after all even with my unchanged password. You just need to simplify your password changing method and do away with unnecessary and complicated bureaucracy to change a common password.

    Please consider adding support and integration for RoboForm. It is most popular password management software in the U.S.. I currently use it with Proton Mail just fine, but tighter coupling would be handy.

    Thanks

    LastPass and using the domain pm.com variant as username is causing troubles. It seems the verification emails sent from LastPass to the pm.com address never arrive. This also effectively hinders me from adding family members to the family subscription, and makes it impossible to change the domain to the normal protonmail.com.

  26. ProtonMail Support

    The short domain for ProtonMail is pm.me, not pm.com. If you need further assistance, please contact our support team using the support form at https://protonmail.com/support-form, via the report bug button or at contact@protonmail.ch and support@protonmail.ch.

    This page is outdated as it refers to the old two password mode. Most password managers should have no problem with the one password mode.

  32. ProtonMail Support

    Two-password mode is still available for users that want to use it: https://protonmail.com/support/knowledge-base/switch-two-password-mode/.
