New ProtonMail Anti-Phishing Feature Makes You Confirm

· · Link

For the past several days I’ve seen a new dialog box whenever I tap on a link in ProtonMail for iOS. It turns out that it’s a new ProtonMail anti-phishing feature.

Another security improvement is our new link confirmation modal, which is now enabled by default on all our apps. This anti-phishing feature helps you avoid opening a link by mistake or going to a different page than you intended.

ProtonMail Bridge Lets You Use Apple Mail as a Client

ProtonMail is an end-to-end encrypted email service based in Switzerland. Since its debut, it has become a viable email service for those wanting email security. Until now, you could only access your ProtonMail account via the web app, and an iOS app. But ProtonMail Bridge finally lets you bring it to the desktop. Bridge acts as a local email server using IMAP and SMTP. It runs in the background and interacts with email clients on your computer. All encryption and decryption happens locally. Benefits include full text search, multiple accounts, and import/export of emails. It uses JavaScript cryptography, and is open source. The software is only available for users with paid accounts, however. You can download it here.
