Secure Your Communications with ProtonMail.

ProtonMail was founded in 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 also hailing from Caltech, Harvard, ETH Zurich and many other research institutions.

Privacy is a fundamental human right.

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.

Anonymous Email - End-to-End Encryption.

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.

Data Security and Neutrality.

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.

100% Free - Easy to Use.

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.

Tor Hidden Service for Encrypted Email.

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.
