Introducing ProtonMail Bridge, email encryption for Outlook, Thunderbird, and Apple Mail – ProtonMail Bloghttps://protonmail.com/blog/thunderbird-outlook-encrypted-email/Today we are officially launching ProtonMail Bridge, which brings easy-to-use email encryption to desktop email clients. ProtonMail Bridge is an application that allows you to use your ProtonMail encrypted email account with your favorite desktop email client such as Thunderbird, Apple Mail, or Outlook, while simultaneously retaining the zero-access encryption and end-to-end encryption that ProtonMail provides. The best part is that this does not require modifying your email client or making changes to your existing workflow. Use email like you have always used it, and the Bridge will automatically encrypt and decrypt messages in the background.

How Google Almost Killed ProtonMail

For nearly a year, Google was hiding ProtonMail from search results for queries such as ‘secure email’ and ‘encrypted email’. This was highly suspicious because ProtonMail has long been the world’s largest encrypted email provider.

This incident illustrates that for ProtonMail to be successful, it is important that we can continue to grow independently of search engines so that it is impossible for any search company to intentionally or unintentionally cripple us.

The more we get the word out about the importance of online privacy, the more we make it impossible to suppress, ban, or otherwise pressure encrypted email services such as ProtonMail. We believe online privacy is critical for an open, democratic, and free future, and regardless of the obstacles ahead of us, we will continue building the tools necessary to protect this future.
