All ProtonMail applications are open source


The popular encryption service e-mail, ProtonMail, announced recently that all its applications are converted to open source. ProtonMail also informed them users that each of these services, has undergone independent audits to ensure its safety.

This announcement by ProtonMail is not something that surprises us, however, since the process started several years ago. THE website ProtonMail application was opened in 2015, just one year after the launch of the service, while in 2019 the same was done with the email application for iOS. Last week, the Bridge app followed suit.

The latest open source application was ProtonMail for Android. According to the company, it asked SEC Consult to conduct a security check on application her for Android and found no problem.

In addition to email applications and all ProtonVPN applications, they became open source earlier this year and then underwent a full security audit.

Proton says the goal behind this move is to bring more transparency to how its products work and to manage user data, which is certainly important if we take into account the ever-increasing risk of safety of our data.

The company has also created bug bounty contests and rewards developers who discover bugs in its services.

Proton has been promoting its services all these years as an alternative to privacy and security, compared to its competitors, the largest of which is Google. So she has created a whole suite of applications for email, electronic diary, cloud storage, etc.

And now its move to turn its services into open source can bring it one step ahead of its competitors.
