Default Allow Protonmail as a valid form of email, please

Some of us are trying to get off of the Big Tech leftist Google platforms such as Gmail that will screw us over if ever given the chance. Protonmail is a trusted Swiss-based encrypted email platform that some of us have moved much of our email correspondence to, but Calguns prohibits Protonmail as a non-approved email domain.

Please allow Protonmail.com as an approved email service for emails tied to user accounts.

Agree - I've been thinking of switching my primary private email address to Protonmail, from a different free source of which I've used exclusively since 1995, ironically because of the repetitive problems, privacy infractions, data-mining, censorship of topics, and security breaches it has suffered over the past 25 years.

I bet by that description you can easily decipher just who that email service may be. With that in mind, it's ironic THAT ONE would be allowed but not Protonmail.

At one point, and this was a while ago so things have changed a fair bit, we had a lot of spammers registering with Protonmail so we added it to the blocked list.

It does seem to have become much more mainstream and more prevalent and we have other methods in place to limit spam so it's been removed from the blocked list.

Thanks Kestryll. I was able to change my associated email address now.

Another good one is Signal. Stop sending gun info exclusively over open communication lines like text messaging. Also start using a trusted VPN and stop using Google. Start using duckduckgo for your search engine. Also stop using cloud services like google photos or apple photos to back up your gun photos. Now these guys have access to everything you own. Keep your info private. I did this years ago. Glad I did.

Another good website for securing data on platforms is privacytools.io

Very good services here: protonmail, signal, duckduckgo, a vpn. You gotta pay for a vpn (mine is 80/year) afaik, the free ones just aren’t up to snuff.

My friend group switched off WhatsApp after we got ads elsewhere on the internet based on our conversations... screw Facebook.
