"Incredible email with a fantastic name"

What do you like best?

Using Protonmail is very pleasant because it has a simple interface that does not overload the view as it happens with other email clients. In addition, Proton is a very professional email that has a good domain name which has made its popularity grow enormously.

Using protonmail for more than two years and in all its versions (free and monthly payment), in my opinion is a great alternative that is even worth paying for it, especially its version "plus" which are only 4 dollar or euro monthly

Even its free version offers everything basic and necessary to work as mail, the "plus" version offers you the possibility to create 5 additional addresses (aliases), extension of the inbox and the possibility of adding your protonmail account to Thunderbird.

I also love Protonmail the possibility of being able to change almost everything from the appearance of mail with the possibility of adding your own styles css.

What do you dislike?

The only negative thing I have found in protonmail is that although you can change the colors (theme) using your own CSS code does not incorporate any theme by default.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We recommend Protonmail if you are looking for a professional email with several plans available, including a free one. The price of the "plus" plan is sufficient to satisfy most of the professional needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With protonmail we can manage several departments of the company because we can create several additional aliases to the main mail and even have enough to use as a personal email.

"Best private email at the moment"

What do you like best?

In our company we use protonmail as personal and business mail along with the domains of our web, we use it mainly to communicate with each other for work reasons leaving the business domain for our clients.

Protonmail has several plans, three of monthly fee and one free, the latter offers the most basic features such as sending and receiving emails. The professional (and the one we currently use) costs 4 euros per month and allows the creation of aliases, organize your emails etc. This method seems more than enough for a company not very big like ours.

Other things we like about protonmail are:

- The interface is clean and simple, sadly there are some emails that try to add dozens of options and saturate the dashboard with things that most do not use

- The interface and theme can be configured (Go to configuration)

- NO advertising, even in its free version.

- It allows to use an integrated VPN within the same ProtonMail, this VPN is called ProtonVPN

- Can be integrated with email clients such as Thunderbird

What do you dislike?

To say something, maybe there are too many forms of payment, there are 3 that could be summarized in two only. The number of aliases that can be created is also somewhat limited.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using ProtonMail even if you do not need it for your business, just as a personal email because it is free and offers everything you need. ProtonMail is a transparent mail that does not spy on your emails to offer publish like others of the competition!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our business we use ProtonMail because we can have a professional domain at a reduced price, only 4 euros per month, with the possibility of creating aliases and integrating into Thunderbird (which we also use)

What Email solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Hands on, techy-friendly encrypted email oriented towards experienced users"

What do you like best?

Protonmail offers the standard in truly private email for self-employed users. I have it set up to easily work with my domain, and it supports multiple addresses along with aliases for multiple users. Protonmail is built with privacy in mind & offers some of the best privacy terms out of any email service. All protonmail servers are based in Sweden.

What do you dislike?

I'm an experienced user who's familiar with DNS settings, PGP encryption, and other technologies not necessarily used by uneducated consumers. Protonmail would not be the best choice for me if I didn't have my current background, as it is very hands-on & requires a certain threshold of technical knowledge that isn't for everyone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a privacy buff, a user of PGP encryption, or a person seeking to have less of your information linked to major fortune 500 technology companies, protonmail is in my opinion the best option. The free version will not meet the needs of most business users, and a subscription plan is necessary for most professionals.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Protonmail has allowed me to maintain the level of security & privacy that I need out of my email service provider. It's easy to integrate PGP encryption into my daily emails, along with managing my inbox + spam filters in a very customizable way for my workload.

"100% seguro"

What do you like best?

Si eres de los que tienes instalado antivirus y antimalware, de los que navegas mediante VPN, de los que rehúye las redes wi-fi públicas, en definitiva, si eres de los que te preocupas por la seguridad y la privacidad, este es el correo electrónico que necesitas.

Protonmail es probablemente uno de los proveedores de correo más seguros que existen. Encripta los mensajes enviados, de tal forma que solo tú y el destinatario, pueda leerlos, y garantiza la privacidad de tu actividad ya que no conserva registros de la misma; de hecho ni siquiera te pide datos personales a la hora del registro (simplemente necesitas aportar un email de contacto, un número de teléfono o realizar una donación voluntaria, para evitar que una misma persona acapare varios emails).

Una vez registrado dispondrías de un email básico, aunque también puedes optar por planes de pago que disponen de más capacidad de almacenamiento, mayor número de direcciones adicionales o dominios personalizados.

Su funcionamiento es muy sencillo, y similar a otros servicios: en la columna de la izquierda están organizadas las carpetas (donde ordenar tu correo) y el botón Compose para redactar los emails.

What do you dislike?

Aunque todos los planes gozan de un alto nivel de seguridad, el plan gratuito dispone de ciertas limitaciones como tener solo 500 mb de capacidad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Tener un email de las características de Protonmail es lo lógico para aquellas personas concienciadas y preocupadas por proteger su información.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Este servicio de Protonmail (especialmente en sus versiones professional y visionary, que permiten dominios personalizados) aportan al correo empresarial un nivel se seguridad que protege toda la información que se intercambie con socios o clientes.

"La seguridad ante todo"

What do you like best?

Este proveedor de correo electrónico pretende ser la referencia en cuanto a seguridad y privacidad, y para ello cuenta con un sistema de encriptación de los mensajes, que hace que solo pueda leerlos el destinatario (además del remitente como es lógico), evitando intromisiones de terceros no autorizados.

Para garantizar la privacidad, Protonmail no conserva registros de actividad y no recaba datos personales a la hora de registrarte en el servicio.

Los servidores de la empresa están físicamente localizados en Suiza, por lo que son las leyes del país helvético las que amparan el servicio prestado, lo que supone una garantía adicional para los clientes.

Su funcionamiento a la hora de enviar y recibir emails es muy similar al de otros correos, por lo que no supone ningún problema para los nuevos usuarios.

En cuanto al precio, existen un plan gratuito y tres planes de pago, con unos precios básicos entre los 4 y los 24 euros mensuales. en los planes intermedios (plus y professional) pueden pagarse suplementos para aumentar la capacidad de almacenamiento, el número de usuarios o de dominios asociados, para adaptarse a las necesidades de cada cliente.

What do you dislike?

En general está muy bien, pero tal vez el tiempo de espera, cuando te logueas o envías un mensaje, es un poco elevado.

Supongo que por temas de seguridad tendrá que ser así, pero se notan esos segundos de espera.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si te preocupan aspectos como la seguridad o la privacidad, Protonmail es una magnífica elección.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Es uno de los servicios de correo electrónico más seguros, así que desde un punto de vista empresarial resulta muy interesante.

"Tu correo encriptado"

What do you like best?

Protonmail ofrece un servicio de correo electrónico mucho más seguro que los correos convencionales, ya que encripta tus emails (con encriptación end-to-end) de forma que nadie pueda fisgar su contenido).

Además esta empresa no requiere información personal durante el registro, ni guarda registros de las IP desde las que se conectan a tu cuenta, de modo que tu privacidad está asegurada.

Hay que tener en cuenta que sus servidores están situados en Suiza, de forma que tu privacidad está protegida por sus estrictas leyes al respecto.

Además su diseño es muy atractivo, con esa animación del átomo que aparece mientras ingresas en tu cuenta o cuando envías un email. Está completamente en castellano, de forma que su utilización resulta muy sencilla.

Presenta varios planes de precios para adaptarse tanto a particulares como a empresas.

What do you dislike?

El punto que menos me gusta de este servicio de correo electrónico es la escasa capacidad de almacenamiento del plan gratuito, de solo 500 mb.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Para quienes están preocupados por su privacidad, y buscan un correo alternativo, Protonmail es la respuesta.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Asegura la confidencialidad e integridad de las comunicaciones, ya que su encriptación end-to-end solo permite que el receptor, y el remitente, conozcan el contenido de los emails.

"Sicurezza + Privacy = ProtonMail"

What do you like best?

Quello che mi piace di più di Protonmail è che offre sicurezza e privacy per impostazione predefinita, senza dover spendere un sacco di tempo a fare le impostazioni.

Una caratteristica che mi piace è la possibilità di accettare e-mail crittografate con PGP inviate tramite e-mail non Protonmail. Recentemente abbiamo aggiunto la possibilità di ricevere e-mail crittografate PGP dall'esterno di ProtonMail e di inviare e-mail crittografate PGP e firmate all'esterno di ProtonMail.

Un altro punto di forza di Protonmail è l'interfaccia web, molto intuitiva e facile da usare, ed è anche possibile attivare la funzione di autenticazione utilizzando tasti monouso, che aggiunge un ulteriore livello di sicurezza.

What do you dislike?

La cosa che mi piace di più di Protonmail è che non posso usarlo con i miei client di posta utilizzando il protocollo IMAP. Per utilizzare Protonmail è necessario installare un'applicazione o un programma Android specifico, che è un fastidio.

Infine, non mi piace nemmeno il prezzo di Protonmail perché, a mio avviso, è troppo caro.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si consiglia di utilizzare Protonmail perché migliora le comunicazioni e-mail, che per impostazione predefinita non sono protette, tuttavia Protonmail è in grado di crittografare le e-mail.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Grazie a Protonmail posso inviare e-mail con informazioni importanti o private senza dovermi preoccupare della sicurezza.

"Protonmail - The safest email "

What do you like best?

I really like that all of my corporation's emails are encrypted. It makes me feel more secure. Another thing about security which I noticed is a location of their servers. Switzerland is one of the safest places to store your data. They offer custom domains for your company which can make you look more professional in relations with customers or business partners.

What do you dislike?

I really hate the design. Their mobile apps aren't great which doesn't suit me much. My employees really often have to work with this mobile software outside the office. I also don't like that their free plan is so limited compared to the competition.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I realized that I can store all of my email in secure place no matter where settled is my company. Also, I realized that I can make custom domain for my company.

I have zero complaints with Protonmail other than it does cost something, but wait the do have a free version that still has all the features so nevermind.

"New way of trustable messaging"

What do you like best?

Protonmail really convinced me for its security features because it does encryption and two step login. They claim that they do not save the second password on their databases which is nice. Also you can send an email with encryption and only your receiver can read that message if she/he knows the decryption password. Also the interface is very easy to use and mobile application is also very smooth and useful which is so nice for me.

What do you dislike?

If you lost the second login password, it means that you lost the account completely because they do not save that password so it can be a problem for some people. It would be great if it works offline I mean you cant read your mails if you are offline.

User interface is easy to use however it seems like they bought a free template from template sites and use it directly. I think they should change it to better appearance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend protonmail for everyone who wants to send secured e mail and keep top secret information in there. They claim that their servers in switzerland so I believe that they are trustable and useful for everyone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using protonmail for my very important business emails etc. It gives me trust and makes me feel more secured.

"Encrypted Communication"

What do you like best?

I like that if I am working with a vendor, I can share sensitive data via this process. I can also set when the files are no longer available. I can also set a password so that only the intended users can decrypt the contents of the email. There is also an IOS app that is nice and clean.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found anything that I dislike yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this for personal email as email is inherently sent un-encrypted.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sending Sensitive data to vendors for review.
