    Hi, Has been a ProtonMail User for 2 years, I am not a User anymore to much money, but I recently purchased ProtonVPN Plus & NordVPN, the last for two years, they had a discount.
    I have EkspressVPN and I also renewed with them recently for 6 months, you have to prioritize, NordVPN is Amazing the speed & security they got.
    ProtonVPN & EkspressVPN is not bad either, not at all.

    I've had free email account for at least a couple years now, though I do donate like $15 to them every year...at least when I could figure out how to. This year they seem to have gotten a clue, and made it easy (https://protonmail.com/donate). Twas not always so. I seldom use it, as it reserved for high security emails, which are now few and far between. Tutonota I use for business/banking, and Posteo for personal. I have a junkmail account at AOL for shopping/spam. Use to have account at Mailfence, but it proved superfluous.

    Plus, it now works properly in Vivaldi on Ubuntu and remembers my login password. So I'm a really happy bunny.

    I guess being based in Switzerland they had to comply with the Swiss legal system.

    I suppose they could move their servers into space.

    And why? Do you expect Proton to go against Swiss law?

    As mentioned in that blog post, any Proton user can stay anonymous by using Tor.

    I don't know. I think they had to comply with Swiss law and had no other choice. It is a disconcerting episode though.

    no, i don't. i'm saying that they should have made it clear beforehand. they admit their guilt and apologize for not doing that. but it's too little too late. they can take their apology and :blink: :mad::mad:

    Regardless of what any of them [service providers] say it all comes down to where you live.
    There are house rules which you have to obey - no questions asked.
    I moved my domains from .com many years ago - see link below - because the rules were made very clear to me.

    Except they do not say that, people just pick parts that suits them, I could also say that the law allows you to kill people, because it says: "You can kill someone". The full sentence would be : You can kill someone in self-defense.
    They keep logs, but they do connect them to accounts, unless asked to. Virtually every service out there logs, because that is the only way to fight DDoS. Like Cloudflare, it says no logs, but also, that they keep logs for 2 weeks only.

    Clarification from their statement.
    So they don't log by default but only if ordered to.
    So even if email is encrypted and they can't access it's content, you should still use VPN or TOR when connecting to their servers.
    This seems logical to me.
