Share this page

Note: Due to the way we roll out new versions, Proton Mail 3.11 has not been released to everyone yet. If you do not see it yet, you will see it soon.

We’re happy to make the first step towards accepting cryptocurrencies as a secure payment method for Proton Mail. Since it is also possible to use Proton Mail credits to pay for Proton VPN(new window), it means that automated Bitcoin payments are now also available for Proton VPN, enhancing the protection of our users’ privacy and security.

Below we explain how you can use Bitcoin in your Proton Mail account. For a more in-depth look at what we decided to support Bitcoin, you can read our announcement blog post here(new window).

Proton Mail does not show advertisements or abuse your privacy to make money. Paid accounts are our only source of funding. Please consider upgrading to a Proton Mail Paid account so that we can continue to operate the service and fund further development.

Proton Mail Bitcoin Support

It is now possible to use Bitcoin when you wish to upgrade your Proton Mail account to different premium plans, top-up your account, or make donations. The Bitcoin payment option appears at check-out, after you’ve selected the desired plan in your account’s dashboard.

You can learn more about the new payment method in this article.

Proton Mail Credits Top – Up

If you are looking to charge your Proton Mail account with credits for later use, you can now do so by using Bitcoin, credit card, PayPal, or cash as showed in the image below. The credits have no expiration date and can also be used for Proton VPN, or the new Proton Mail Professional plans. If you use a payment method that does not support re-occurring payments (such as Bitcoin, cash, or PayPal), topping up with credits can allow you to avoid manually paying the invoices every month or every year.
