Is protonmail a honeypot? >Trying to sign up on .onion links back to .com >Can't sign up with vpn >Only accepts crypto after you've signed up There's absolutely no reason for not allowing sign-ups with vpns/TOR and activating the accounts after the payment has gone through Do there exist any alternatives that aren't glowies?
WTF is in your emails that is so sensitive you go to all this effort tho? Like are you sending assassination plans to your homies or something?
If you're trusting your opsec into some third party company, you deserve it. Use cock.li if you want some e-mail service you know you can't trust, but is at least bullshit-free (if you ignore vc). But if you (really) know what you're doing you can just use any popular provider, Google included.
It's likely to be a honeypot since Protonmail already cooperated with law enforcement. Also, Swiss confederation recently reduced their privacy laws. Its policies should scare every anti-capitalist human. Initially, Protonmail was suppressed in Google search results but now it's the second for "secure private mail provider" For more info: https://digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/email.html#ProtonMail >>41 Glowie detected. Everything is sensitive except what is meant to be public. Otherwise you become the commodity.https://riseup.net/en/security/resources/radical-servers >>42 This. But cock.li-founder is anti-leftist. Please use and support a radical tech collective in your area. https://riseup.net/en/security/resources/radical-servers Don't forget to use PGP.
>>43 >cock.li-founder is anti-leftist vc is merely pretending to be retarded, why would you care anyways? >radical tech collective Hackerspaces are cringe and bluepilled.
>>44 Glow.
>>43 Riseup has rules that suggest they're reading your emails (the only way they could enforce them).
>>45 Enjoy your hobo hangout.
>>47 Go away NSA
>>48 >Anyone who criticize my lifestyle is a federal agent! The begginers' guide to anarcho-liberal political discourse.
>>49 Not today CIA
It was pretty much advertised in Mr.Robot, so most likely.
>>46 They only ratted out actual scammers tho.
It's always connecting me to Utah, and the Swiss keep the Nazis' gold for them.
The OP poisoned the well by baiting schizo-posting.
>i just need the bandwidth and minimum bullshit and i know how to use PGP cock.li >i can pay 1 euro a month posteo.de >i know someone that has a riseup account riseup.net
registering protonmail nowadays is unreliable - most of the time they want a phone number. sometimes it works with a "recovery" email. temporary emails won't work, but you can easily create a throwaway yandex mail account for that purpose. i'm talking about registering over Tor, i have no experience with clearnet.
>OP: Is [x] a honeypot >Poster1: What are you hiding >Poster2: Yeah dude duh of course its a honey >Poster3: Poster1 glows You could make a thread asking that question about literally any piece of popular software and you will get the same exact answer OP. And that answer is yes, you should always assume the software you're using isn't secure, because on some level it isn't. The only serious way to OpSec is either hundreds of layers of encryption and disinfo added between your backdoored email clients, computer hardware, and router connections or you can manufacture your own logic gates, operating system, and computer network.
>>1861 This has changed recently. I've managed to create a couple of protonmail accounts using throwaway email addresses (guerrillamail) for verification, while leaving recovery email address blank. Doesn't necessarily work with every Tor exit node, but it doesn't take a lot of circuit switching to find one that works. Not that anybody should simply trust protonmail. It's just useful if you need to create an account on some site that requires "legit" email address. As long as you thoroughly compartmentalize each of your "operations" you might as well use protonmail as your main/personal email provider.
