ProtonMail Discloses Users IP Address

Recently, ProtonMail had to comply with Swiss authorities and disclose a "climate activists" IP address and information related to the type of device used to access the service. All of this despite their "no logs claim". Read more about the legal request directly from the ProtonMail team on Reddit.

 

Users of the service who are concerned about the visibility of their IP address should use a VPN (preferably 7 proxies;) or access the service over the Tor network.

Re: ProtonMail Discloses Users IP Address

Seem like the solution is pretty cut and dry to me. Of course, then they would have to worry about those darn Pirates.

 

"...Third, no matter what service you use, unless it is based 15 miles offshore in international waters, the company will have to comply with the law."
