Last March, Proton Mail launched out of beta. This March, we’re bringing back Proton Mail Beta so you can test new Proton Mail features before they are released.

Today, we’re announcing the immediate availability of a new site, (new window)where we will be hosting experimental releases of Proton Mail. As many of you probably recall, Proton Mail spent over two years in beta before it was finally released to the world in March 2016. During our original beta, we worked closely with our user community to refine and develop Proton Mail into the world’s best secure email service(new window).

As a community driven project, Proton Mail’s development path has always been driven by the user community(new window), and the beta site will serve as a way for interested members of the Proton Mail community to provide feedback on new features prior to public release. Anybody can access the Proton Mail beta site, and window) will qualify for our security bug bounty program(new window).

Note, there is also an existing Proton Mail Mobile Beta Program(new window), which will continue to be actively maintained and supported by the Proton Mail Team.
