Protonmail.ch seems to be a new webmail service, based in Geneva and having links to the CERN. However, they still do not accept registrations. Instead, they write that they send you an invitation as soon as possible. Also, they state that they have chosen Swaziland, since Swiss Federal Data Protection Act and the Swiss Federal Data Protection Ordinance offers some of the strongest privacy protection in the world for both individuals and entities. This is absolutely not true: Starting June 2014, all telco and internet companies must store the data (metadata) for one year as opposed to six months before. Also, a court order can be issued by any of the 26 cantons (counties) of Switzerland. In 2013, Switzerland has issued a total of 16,015 warrants. This is proportionally more than the U.S.A., Russia, and mainland China combined. See https://protonmail.ch/blog/transparency-report/. So, I wonder: Nothing much seems to happen at Protonmail except that it appears they are harvesting e-mail addresses. Also, the Swiss set up is justified with the same lame arguments as Blackphone has used. (Hypersecure, shielded from the U.S., but all bank data of U.S. citizens had be supplied to U.S. authorities). What is your opinion? Is Protonmail.ch another snake-oil candidate or has it even be set up by a three letter agency?
