ProtonMail has posted a commentary on the recent arrest of one of its users here:

ProtonMail accounts can be created and accessed more privately by using ProtonMail's onion server, which can only be accessed using Tor Browser or an alternative browser configured to route traffic through the Tor network:

Warning to those who wish to remain as anonymous as possible:  Protonmail may still be storing your IP address and could hand it over to law enforcement.  If you really want privacy with Protonmail, delete your current Protonmail account and create a new one through the TOR browser.  From now on, only access your Protonmail account using TOR.  Never login with your real IP address.

Threema, a Swiss-based, private messaging app that has been using since last year, is now open source.

One advantage of Threema over other messaging apps like Signal and WhatsApp is that you do not have to associate a telephone number with your account. If you would like to communicate with but do not want us to know your phone number, Threema is a good choice. Our Threema ID is mentioned in the previous post in this thread and is also available on our contact page.

Details on Threema's encryption scheme and source code are available here:

You can now text or call via Threema, a secure messaging app that allows you to create user identities that are not connected to an e-mail address or phone number. Threema is not free (it currently costs $2.99), but it may suit the needs of some who wish to communicate with us.

If you would like to contact us via Threema, our user ID is A4PYDD5S. You can add us as a contact and confirm our identity by scanning our QR code:

You can now text or call via WhatsApp. Communications sent via this mobile app (which also has desktop clients for Windows and Macintosh) are end-to-end encrypted. While we prefer to use Signal Private Messenger, WhatsApp has a much larger installed user base (over one billion).

You can now contact securely and (optionally) anonymously via ProtonMail, a Swiss-based secure e-mail provider. ProtonMail offers free accounts with 1 GB of storage. All communication with the server is via HTTPS, and QualysSSL Labs gives ProtonMail an A+ rating. In addition to using a password, ProtonMail further encrypts your email on their servers using a login key that you alone control. Android and iOS apps are available.

If you would like to try ProtonMail, you can use it to contact at our ProtonMail address, [at] protonmail [dot] com. Contacting us in this way eliminates metadata that could be used to establish the fact that you communicated with

You might also consider using a ProtonMail account when registering on the message board. You can sign up for a ProtonMail account via the mobile app, or on the Web here:

This is a very scary subject. Technology is a double-edged sword.

Fortunately, I have nothing to lose! Smiley

What a shame. I never thought I'd see the day Americans would have to use cyphers and encryption to safely communicate with one another. Reminds me of those old WWII movies about nazi occupied countries. But it shouldn't be surprising, since one can legally be put through an interrogation while strapped to a device called "Lie Detector" in order to get a job. Orson Wells was indeed a prophet.

This has been going on for a long time. Remember the Bush Administration was illegally monitoring phone calls from a very large phone bank in Washington State. I have it from a very good source that this corrupt administration has been biulding dosiers on Obama's adversaries ever since he took office but, it has been greatly upgraded since the FCC took over the internet on Nov. 20, 2011. And, btw, I'm sure you know that the feds has the best encryption breakers that there is.

I haven't brought this sort of thing up before because I didn't want to be responsible of turning the focus of your website into a political forum. However, I am glad that you posted this because a lot of people simply does not believe this can happen in this country. They are either naive or actually believe in it.

As you may be aware, Americans' electronic communications (including telephone, e-mail, and Internet usage) are the target of pervasive, warrantless surveillance by our own government. This is no paranoid fantasy. NSA whistleblower William Binney, the former technical director of the Agency's 6,000-person World Geopolitical Military Analysis group, recently told Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman that he believes the U.S. Government has copies of most e-mails sent and received by people in the United States. Phone conversations and Internet traffic are also being collected on a massive scale.

What this means is that if you have ever communicated with or me personally by e-mail, text- or voice chat, phone or SMS, or even just visited this website (as you are doing now), the U.S. Government likely has a record of it.

To communicate electronically with securely, you must use encryption. An easy way to do this is to create a free e-mail account with ProtonMail, a free service (with a paid tier) based in Switzerland. ProtonMail encrypts messages between users on your own device and stores mail in encrypted format on its servers such that the admins cannot read it.'s ProtonMail address is

As you see in my signature block, I'm reachable through a variety of encrypted messaging apps, including Signal Private Messenger, Wire, and WhatsApp.

Bear in mind that privacy (through encryption) does not guarantee anonymity. Even when e-mails, text, voice and video chats are encrypted, it may still possible to see who is communicating with whom. If you wish to communicate with anonymously, then I suggest using an encrypted proxy such as Tor. The Tails live CD/USB, discussed here, provides a handy implementation of Tor. Create any e-mail/chat accounts you use for anonymous communications through Tor, and only access those accounts through Tor.
