Who's running the Protonmail honeypot? / by Mike Hudack

Protonmail is a service that offers “secure email based in Switzerland.” It offers features like end-to-end encryption, anonymous accounts and “Swiss privacy.” Read: it’s subpoena-resistant. It’s also “100% free,” and seems well designed. Mr. Robot uses ProtonMail.

Anyone want to take a bet that Protonmail is run by an intelligence agency? Secondary wager can be placed on which of the major powers the intelligence agency is aligned with: American (includes allied countries like France and Israel which would have this capacity), Russian or Chinese.

My bet’s on American-aligned.
