No personal information is required to create your secure email account. By default, we do not keep any IP logs which can be linked to your anonymous email account. Your privacy comes first.
All emails are secured automatically with end-to-end encryption. This means even we cannot decrypt and read your emails. As a result, your encrypted emails cannot be shared with third parties.
ProtonMail is incorporated in Switzerland and all our servers are located in Switzerland. This means all user data is protected by strict Swiss privacy laws. ProtonMail’s infrastructure resides in Europe’s most secure datacenter, underneath 1000 meters of solid rock.
ProtonMail can be used on any device without software install. ProtonMail secure email accounts are fully compatible with other email providers. You can send and receive emails normally.
We believe email privacy and security are fundamental human rights that should be available for everyone. Basic ProtonMail accounts are always free.
In order to use ProtonMail’s “onion” site, you need to first set up Tor on your computer. After Tor is properly set up, ProtonMail’s onion site can be visited at the following URL:
There are several reasons why you might want to use ProtonMail over Tor. First, routing your traffic to ProtonMail through the Tor network makes it difficult for an adversary wiretapping your internet connection to know that you are using ProtonMail. Tor applies extra encryption layers on top of your connection, making it more difficult for an advanced attacker to perform a “man-in-the-middle” attack on your connection to us. Tor also makes your connections to ProtonMail anonymous as we will not be able to see the true IP address of your connection to ProtonMail.
