Russia Blocks Encrypted Email Provider ProtonMail

If ProtonMail’s encryption is so good that the Russians are afraid of it, then it must be very good encryption! This latest announcement from the state Federal Security Service, formerly the KGB, may turn out to be the best advertising that ProtonMail could ever obtain!

Instead of being “Banned in Boston,” ProtonMail is now proudly “Banned in Moscow.”

Well, the ban is perfect just yet. Some Russians are still able to use ProtonMail. Details may be found in an article in the ProtonMail web site at: https://protonmail.com/blog/russia-block.
