Paypal suspends payments to Proton Mail without warning

The Proton Mail project, which offers end-to-end encrypted webmail from the user’s browser, has had a stick thrust into its operational spokes courtesy of PayPal.

(…)

PayPal has frozen Proton Mail’s account without warning: “No attempt was made by PayPal to contact us before freezing our account, and no notice was given”, the post states.

(…)

“When we pressed the PayPal representative on the phone for further details, he questioned whether ProtonMail is legal and if we have government approval to encrypt emails,” author Andy Yen claims.

Sadly, I can’t say this isn’t business as usual from Paypal.
