Importing Contacts into Proton Mail

Share this page

In Proton Mail v1.11 and up, we support the importing of your existing email contacts from other email service providers (ESPs).

The process takes just a few minutes and is outlined here:

Export contacts from Gmail

1. Log in to Gmail.
2. Go to the “Contacts” page.

import_contacts1
Click the “Gmail dropdown” button right above the “Compose” button. Choose “Contacts” from the dropdown menu.

3. Click “Export”.

import_contacts2
On the Contacts page, click the “more” button. Choose “Export” from the dropdown menu.

4. Choose a format.

import_contacts3
Choose the format you want to export. We recommend Outlook format.

Once you have exported your contacts to a file, visit your Proton Mail Contacts page to import your contacts.

We only have a guide for Gmail for now. We will update this post with additional ESP later.
