When it comes to sending and receiving emails, sometimes you need complete security. Unfortunately, most mobile apps for sending and receiving encrypted emails are cumbersome and challenging to use. This is not the case with ProtonMail, an email client that has recently launched on the App Store.
An easy-to-navigate interface
The ProtonMail main interface
ProtonMail has a very clean, simple interface. Reading and composing emails is simple and easy, and the view is spacious and easy to use. HTML is supported within the emails, so you can easily click on links and see rich text treatment of the message.
Rich text support
Rich text support
By selecting a word or passage, you can easily apply rich text effects to your email. You can bold words, italicize them, or underline them. ProtonMail also supports attaching files, so you can take a photograph to send or include one from your Photo Library.
This email will self-destruct in one hour
Within the app, you can decrypt your message quickly and easily for pure end-to-end encryption. Since messages are sent from ProtonMail's own servers in Switzerland, and they don't store your keys, your security and privacy is assured. You can also set an expiration timer for a self-destructing email.
But what if my recipient doesn't have ProtonMail?
Viewable even from other apps
If your recipient doesn't have ProtonMail, they can still take advantage of the encryption of your message. All they have to do is tap on the button to decrypt the email, and they are taken to the ProtonMail website to view it. They do have to know the password, of course.
ProtonMail is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 8 or later. The software is free to download on the App Store, without any ads or in-app purchases.
