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 email@example.com)
- A short version of this address ending in @pm.me (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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 (email@example.com) 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.
