There's a lot to love about ProtonMail.
It's end-to-end encrypted. It's built by scientists from CERN, so their datacenter is literally behind a vault in the Swiss Alps. They don't track or log any of your personal information and have no ability to read your email. They're ad-free. The user experience is familiar and easy to use. It has all the features you'd want in an email service; from Gmail-like Tags to self-destructing messages. There's no reason not to try ProtonMail.
ProtonMail's cryptography is open source and has been vetted by security experts from around the world. They support custom domains and offer business accounts for organizations. Best of all, the ProtonMail team themselves regularly contribute to different causes supporting privacy and human rights. It's an amazing product from an incredible team.
