Members of the green ultra-radical Youth For Climate movement, inspired by Greta Thunberg, have been arrested by police.

Activists used ProtonMail for their activities. The Swiss government ordered the email service to hand over the IP addresses of the aforementioned users, which data was passed on to Europol officials, which ultimately led to their arrest.

This may come as a shock to those who hold the traditional view of Switzerland as a bastion of privacy and autonomy from foreign powers, but the reality may no longer live up to this image.

ProtonMail was asked by journalists why it even owns users' IP addresses when it says it doesn't log IP addresses by default. — This is indicated on the main page of the site

ProtonMail founder and CEO Andy Yen explains that he began logging the IP addresses of specific users after a request from Swiss authorities.
