ProtonMail Doesn’t Feature End-to-End Encryption as It Claims, According to Study

The Infinite Brief
According to a new study, ProtonMail does not deliver the end-to-end encryption it claims to offer its users.

The study, conducted by computer science researcher Nadim Kobeissi, concludes that since its inception, ProtonMail has “never achieved end-to-end encryption security guarantees for the majority of its users.”

The study concludes that there are “serious shortcomings in ProtonMail’s cryptographic architecture that we believe should be urgently remedied. As it stands, ProtonMail does not meet its self-professed security goals when these are subjected to analysis.”
