"ProtonMail logged IP address of French activist after order by Swiss authorities"
@hund basically there is none. No matter what anyone tells you about any product. Which is good for law enforcement.
@hund Proton's response response and transparency is definitely worth adding to the discussion: https://protonmail.com/blog/climate-activist-arrest/
@shom The issue is not that they obeyed the law, the issue is that they had sensitive data about their customers to share in the first place. They royally screwed up this time.
@jordan @hund I'm not clear if they logged the IP because of the legal order or if they were always logging and had to share because of the order.
I would prefer they didn't log at all and not sure what rationale there is to log (account /service protection against brute force/ddos?!).
I've been a long-term, happy, paid user of the service because I think they're providing something of value. I want accountability and improvement not just canceling.
