Become a Proton Mail beta tester and be the first to test new features

Updated February 2022 with new instructions for enabling beta access on the desktop.  

Perhaps more than other tech companies, Proton Mail takes pride in being a community-driven project. Our community gave us the initial backing to get started(new window), our users drive our major product decisions(new window), and our main source of funding is individual subscriptions and donations(new window).

We also depend on feedback from our community to develop new products and features as part of the Proton Mail beta program. From squashed bugs to big features like encrypted contacts(new window) and PGP support(new window), you can take advantage of these improvements before their public release.

Below you can find everything you need to know about joining the Proton Mail beta program and staying up to date with what our developers are working on.
