Break free from Gmail

You should be able to choose what happens to your data. With Proton, only you can read your emails.

Your favourite features, plus privacy

Big Tech, such as Gmail, makes money by scanning your emails and collecting your data so it can target you with ads. Proton Mail believes your emails belong to you. We do not track your data or show ads. And we provide all the features you need to quickly manage your workflow and organize your inbox.

Just exported 20 years of Gmail and imported to Proton Mail - then deleted it all in Gmail.

Quite soon, Google will no longer know who I am.

My Choice for a Gmail alternative? @ProtonMail - Been using a paid account for over 2 years and it's great. Good customer service also!

I moved to @ProtonMail 2 years ago and never looked back. The feeling of freedom you get when you know you are not being tracked is uplifting.

I'm a big fan of @ProtonMail! They kept the light on for small tech, independent mail service providers while nobody else seemed to give a damn.
