Addresses and identities

A free personal address is the original email address that belongs to individual Proton Mail users.

Everyone on Proton Mail has at least one free personal address:

  • The original address you signed up with, which usually ends in @proton.me or @protonmail.com (like alicejones@proton.me)
  • A short version of this address ending in @pm.me (alicejones@pm.me), which you can activate in Settings(new window) if your address is available

If you joined Proton before June 2022, you could have signed up for a free @proton.me address (alicejones@proton.me) for a limited time in addition to the original @protonmail.com (or @protonmail.ch) address you signed up with.

If you signed up before 2016, you also have a @protonmail.ch address.

With a Proton Free plan, you can only receive emails at your short @pm.me address. If you have a paid plan, you can also send messages from your @pm.me address.

Managing your free personal addresses

You can’t disable your free personal addresses. But if you have more than one Proton Mail account, you can merge their addresses(new window) into a single account to send and receive mail from the same mailbox.

To edit your address display name or add a signature:

1. Log in to your account at account.proton.me(new window) and go to Settings → Go to settings → Identity and addresses → Display name and signature.

2. Enter your new display name or signature.

To get more addresses and other premium features, you can upgrade your Proton plan.
