All ProtonMail users can activate the pm.me address, with the same user ID. You can receive, but to send mail from the address you must upgrade to a paid account, €48 /yr.
Pricey alias.

Full PGP support now

As of July, ProtonMail is (finally) fully interoperable with other PGP mail clients.

You can export your ProtonMail public key to non-ProtonMail contacts, so they can send you encrypted mail using their client of choice. You can import their public PGP key, so you can send them encrypted mail.

Once that's done, email encryption can be automatic between the two of you with only the one party using ProtonMail.

They have a public key server, so an external user's client can automatically look up the key of any ProtonMail address.

From the PM blog post above:

The beauty of email is that it is federated, meaning that anybody can implement it. It is not controlled by any single entity, it is not centralized, and there is not a single point of failure. While this does constrain email in many ways, it has also made email the most widespread and most successful communication system ever devised.

PGP, because it is built on top of email, is therefore also a federated encryption system. Unlike other encrypted communications systems, such as Signal or Telegram, PGP doesn’t belong to anybody, there is no single central server, and you aren’t forced to use one service over another. We believe encrypted communications should be open and not a walled garden. ProtonMail is now interoperable with practically ANY other past, present, or future email system that supports the OpenPGP standard, and our implementation of this standard is also itself open source.

ProtonMail email hacker arrested. I wonder if using a service like ProtonMail increases your security threats in some ways simply because you are telling the world you have communications worth hiding, legal or illegal? In other words, it is like the old advice, when walking in a bad neighborhood don't wear flashy clothes and a Rolex watch.

No, ProtonMail wasn't hacked. These were the DDoS attacks of last July.

I guess it depends on your definition of "hacked." I suppose that technically it was formerly used when someone gained unauthorized access to a site, but today many people and news organizations use it to mean any type of unauthorized or illegal activity on the Internet.

Inserting the word "email" might lead to a misperception that ProtonMail's systems were breached.
