Protonmail behaves like a CIA/NSA Honeypot

Protonmail has an Onion domain (https://protonirockerxow.onion/), which allows users to visit their site through the TOR browser. However, when a user creates a new Protonmail account through TOR, they are redirected from the Protonmail ".onion" address to ".com." This compromises your secure encrypted connection to their onion address, allowing for potential identification.

The only other websites that operate similarly are CIA/NSA honeypots.

Protonmail does not provide "end-to-end encryption"

Professor Nadim Kobeissi mathematically proved (https://web.archive.org/web/20210123101755/https://eprint.iacr.org/2018/1121.pdf) that Protonmail does not offer end-to-end encryption. This means Protonmail has the capability to decrypt the data of its own users.

After being exposed, Protonmail was forced to make a public statement (https://web.archive.org/web/2021012...com/blog/cryptographic-architecture-response/) in which the company "did not consider its cryptographic weaknesses as serious shortcomings." Formally, they claim to offer the same level of security as Gmail.

Protonmail was created under CIA/NSA control

Both Gmail and Protonmail were created in departments funded by and under the control of the CIA/NSA. The development was overseen by the U.S. intelligence community's Inspector General (https://web.archive.org/web/2021012...atchdog.io/protonmails-creation-with-cia-nsa/), Joel Brenner, responsible for U.S. intelligence.

Protonmail is partially owned by the CIA

The CIA openly operates the front company In-Q-Tel (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In-Q-Tel), whose stated mission is to invest in technology companies on behalf of the CIA.

In-Q-Tel declared (https://web.archive.org/web/2021022...suddenly-uncle-sam-wants-to-bankroll-you.html) a special interest in information contained in emails and encrypted messages.

In-Q-Tel has a venture subsidiary, Charles River Ventures (https://web.archive.org/web/2021022...suddenly-uncle-sam-wants-to-bankroll-you.html), which invested 2 million dollars in the developing company Protonmail back in 2015 (http://web.archive.org/web/20210127...-has-raised-2m-usd-to-protect-online-privacy/).

Swiss MLAT law may grant the CIA full access

Protonmail's servers are located in Switzerland, a country with an MLAT treaty (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutua...stance treaty,enforce public or criminal laws), which can allow the CIA to continue its surveillance mission.

Protonmail recently revised its Privacy Policy to include MLAT contract language and requirements (https://web.archive.org/web/20210128124335/https://protonmail.com/privacy-policy). Their actions indicate that they are capitulating to the MLAT agreement.

Protonmail developers do not use Protonmail

Protonmail developers do not use Protonmail (https://web.archive.org/web/2021012...dog.io/protonmail-devs-do-not-use-protonmail/). If you were served food by a chef who refused to eat it, would it concern you? It's a similar situation. Protonmail developers do not use Protonmail, likely for significant reasons.

Protonmail has lied to its users at least 8 times (https://web.archive.org/web/20210127135330/https://privacy-watchdog.io/protonmails-false-claims/).

Protonmail is not the email solution you would use if you seek privacy or security.
