Climate activist arrested after ProtonMail provided his IP address - https://twitter.com/tenacioustek/status/1434604102676271106
@ntnsndr I hope we see proton mail publish the extraordinary legal steps they took to at least try to resist the request. Even google and apple and twitter sometimes resist these things. From Andy Yen's twitter response it seems like they just rolled over.
@jamiem People throwing in "We need end-to-end encrypted, decentralised email" into that thread really need to stop repeating "good phrases they know".
@jamiem nothing unexpected, I think people that are surprised by this have misunderstood what ProtonMail can and cannot do.
This is in no way against what they claim they'll do for their users.
