Thanks for the link. I think they encrypt all communication in such a way, that not even they have access to the content. If they are being forced to provide the email, they will provide it in it's encrypted form.

It's scary to think that most of us, just accept the status quo.... "They snoop, we just have to accept it"

I always imagine a scenario where a person from some government organization is allowed to sit with you and your family in your living room, whilst you watch TV to make sure you abide by the rules.

They invade you privacy in the electronic world, and we just do not care.  Sad

That's why you should encrypt text with GPG for outgoing mails.

Don't be paranoid about it. You will only need that either if you are a terrorist of secret agent really. "Normal" people do no need something like that really.
And I want to know if I donate to proton mail will I get my account faster/instantaneously?

I am not paranoid. I use yahoo and gmail. I think this is the opposite of paranoid.
Just I didn't really understand the point of such mail service.

How do we know Protonmail will not close down in the future? It's unlikely the big providers like gmail and yahoo will close down, but the small ones might find it's not paying and close. You could lose all your old emails if that happened.

Such risk always exist. But they're registered company, not some teenager in his basement running some project. If they were to close down, I assume they would give a notice in advance to give everyone a chance to backup their emails.

I'm neither terrorist nor NSA friend, but I do encryption, because for sure they can read our emails. (You are saying you're paranoid connecting with HTTPS?) And I'm not sure if you can get faster access for their service if you donate. They had such option in the last year's Crowdfunding... Ask them, they may do so.

Just wanted to add another thumbs up for protonmail.

I took me about a week to get the invite. I donated after receiving it so I wouldn't know if donating speeds up your processing time.
