    I just got my Protonmail account created today. Looks solid to me, although it does seem the best encryption they provide is from one Protonmail to another Protonmail. I think this is similar for a lot of the other "secure" emails out there as well. It also says it is free and always will be, with the exception of the option to upgrade for greater storage. It is based out of Switzerland.

    Why the long wait to gain access for use of this system?

    Mine took about 3.5 weeks so shouldn't be too much longer now
    "Some of you have asked us why it is taking so long. When will I get my invite? As much as we would like to give ProtonMail to everyone, the reality is that we are not an established internet giant with server farms and thousands of engineers / support staff.
    Our focus on protecting our users’ privacy means we cannot use cloud services such as AWS even though that would be much easier. Instead, we must buy our own servers and install them in datacenters in Switzerland, which is a time consuming and costly process." This is why

    Might check your spam folder, some people have found their invite there. Also, there has been accounts of aol users never receiving their invites for some odd reason, so if you used an aol email to sign up that could be the cause.

    Dam joined the party too late. For anyone already set up - is it user friendly? Wanted counter mail but seemed very difficult to set up on iOS

    Proton Mail seems very user-friendly to me.

    That won't work (defeats purpose of encryption), but they are developing an app.
