Advanced cryptography meets modern design.
Protected by Swiss Privacy Laws
ProtonMail is incorporated in Switzerland and our servers are located in Switzerland. We are outside of US and EU jurisdiction and user data is protected by strict Swiss data protection laws.
We can't read your data
Our end-to-end encryption ensures your data is already encrypted by the time it reaches our servers. We cannot decrypt your messages and as result, we cannot share them with third parties.
We don't track our users
No email or phone number required to create your account. We don't keep IP logs which can be linked to your username. We take privacy seriously, and our mission is to protect your right to privacy.
Available for everyone
We believe privacy is a fundamental human right and should be available for everyone. That's why we offer a free version of ProtonMail that anyone can use. Our free version comes with all security and privacy features and no hidden costs.
Encryption without the headache
ProtonMail works on any device with a modern web browser, there is nothing to install. We are also backwards compatible with other email providers so you can continue sending and receiving emails from friends who are not using ProtonMail.
Optimized for productivity
ProtonMail's modern and clean user interface is the result of much research. Each detail is optimized to help you better read, organize, and send email. The result is email that is actually enjoyable to use.
ProtonMail was founded in summer 2013 by scientists who met at CERN and were drawn together by a shared vision of a more secure and private Internet. Since then, ProtonMail has evolved into a global effort to protect civil liberties and build a more secure Internet, with team members hailing from Caltech, Harvard, ETH Zurich and many other research institutions.
Today, we help our fast growing community of users from more than 120 countries protect their private data online. More than 10,000 supporters have assisted us in this mission by donating to make this project possible. Thanks to your support, we are continuing to develop state of the art privacy and security technology from our home base of Geneva, Switzerland.
