It is an error. A fix to remove this is coming, as the team stated some hours ago:

“There is a fix incoming, thanks for your patience!”

How do you get rid of this f* titlegore?

Please be respectful of the language used here. We don’t use that kind of expressions here, and won’t allow it.



No. The team have official handles and ourselves, Volunteer mods, as in reddit. But that user is just a user AFAIK.

[Proton.me] Top blog posts of January 2024


Thank you for your feedback. Growing as an organization is most of the times thanks to the community. I’ll do my best to pass along.



It’s official, for the original message see here: https://status.proton.me/incidents/3jwzn1fyf1x3 "Some Windows and Linux versions of Proton Mail Bridge are experiencing issues in auto-upgrading to newer versions of Bridge. In certain situations, it can lead to downgrading to a version that could reduce reliability.

If you are facing problems with Bridge on Windows and Linux, or even if you are not facing issues, we recommend making a manual update to the latest version.

Download the latest version here: https://proton.me/mail/bridge#download

Afterward, double-click the downloaded file to start the update. Once the update is done, Bridge will be able to auto-update again.

Every Windows and Linux Bridge version between 3.2.0 and 3.8.1 (inclusive) must be manually updated to the latest Bridge version to re-enable auto-updates, which is important for security and reliability. We recommend performing a manual update if you are unsure which version of Bridge you have.

In case of any questions, please get in touch with Proton customer support or consult the following article for more information: https://proton.me/support/protonmail-bridge-manual-update

No other Proton services besides the specific Windows and Linux versions of Proton Mail Bridge were affected. Posted 15 hours ago. Feb 03, 2024 - 00:29 CET"



Would be nice, right? Thanks for your feedback, I’ll pass along!

Edited: thinking it further, it could be a different app, not all pass users use mail.

It would be awesome, for sure. I’d personally love it. I know it’s planned. That’s as far as our data goes.

fdroid wen

When an alternative way of pushing notifications is developed. Not yet. And with that dependency, it won’t get to fdroid.


Good thing feedback isn’t a super important part of beta testing or anything

No need for sarcasm over here. Feedback is super important on this phase. As it always is.



Yeah, this one was among the most requested features. Glad it went through!


Weird. I’d suggest you uninstall and re-install if that’s possible. Could be a beta issue somewhere. I’m not seeing it in my own device, that’s for sure, and I removed both (production from Playstore and first manual beta apk) to get the actual beta from the playstore, if that helps.


Hmmm, I’ve seen some requests like this before, and no, we don’t have any information on that, AFAIK. Due to the nature of the encrypted service, Proton has some extra challenges to get that right compared to non-encrypted providers.



It’s a function that’s still in beta, on a gradual rollout, so here you have some more data: https://proton.me/support/enable-photo-backup



Yup. Awesome development IMHO. Many fellow users were requesting this. It will gradually see the light on a planned rollout.


More that 6Tb? No, at least there’s no more data on this.


Agree. Proton is not only about SECURITY but about PRIVACY. ISPs usually collect data and sell it, governments and third parties use your data. I wouldn’t go out there without a VPN.





That’s the thing, it’s not. Different platforms have different priorities. Holding back a feature because of not being able to deliver in another platform was always not in Proton’s ideal scenario. That’s the why. A team has it ready? Release!



Hi, do you happen to have a ticket number, so we can follow up with the team? Thanks!


I hear you. Roadmaps are being updated and will be published as soon as they’re ready.


Well, it is planned, we’re kind of short in human resources, but are working on it. Thanks for your feedback!


I use FolderSync to move from /Pictures/Screenshots and other to /DCIM/Camera so they autoupload. Just works so far, apparently.


Notifications are still encrypted, so no issues there about privacy. Convenience? Sure thing. BTW, I really want a notification service away from Google.
