Proton Launches Desktop App for Proton Mail and Proton Calendar
Proton, the renowned provider of encrypted email services, has recently launched a desktop version of its popular Proton Mail app. This update grants users full access to their Proton Mail accounts, as well as the newly introduced Proton Calendar, all from the convenience of their desktop computers.
Currently in beta, the desktop app has been optimized for both Windows and macOS operating systems, allowing a wider range of users to seamlessly integrate their Proton Mail experience into their daily workflow. By encrypting sent emails end-to-end, just like the browser version, Proton ensures that user privacy and data security remain top priorities.
A notable feature of the desktop app is the forthcoming offline access capability. In the near future, users will be able to view and draft emails even without an internet connection. This eliminates the need for users to previously configure their Proton Mail accounts with other email clients for offline access. The app will cache a substantial number of emails for offline use, making it extremely convenient for users who frequently find themselves in situations without internet access, such as during travel or power outages.
It is important to note that although offline access will be available, internet access will still be required to send and encrypt emails, guaranteeing that messages remain protected throughout the transmission process. This ensures that Proton’s high standards for security and privacy are maintained even when working offline.
In addition to the desktop app, Proton Mail is also enhancing its services with the introduction of encrypted auto-forwarding exclusively for paid users. This feature enables users to maintain end-to-end encryption when forwarding emails, but only when communicating with other Proton Mail users. This enhancement further solidifies Proton’s commitment to providing secure communication channels for its users.
Furthermore, improvements have been made to the Proton Calendar, which now includes a fully searchable web version. This update allows users to conveniently search through their schedules and events, ensuring that they can easily stay organized and manage their time effectively.
Proton’s latest developments represent a significant step towards an enhanced user experience, reinforcing the company’s dedication to providing cutting-edge privacy-focused solutions. With the introduction of the desktop app and improvements to Proton Calendar, Proton continues to lead the way in secure and encrypted communication platforms.
