ProtonCalendar is now available as a beta for paid ProtonMail users
Privacy-focused Internet users will soon have a sleek and full-featured calendar to go along with their email inbox. The developers behind ProtonMail and ProtonVPN have announced that ProtonCalendar is now available as a beta for ProtonMail users with a paid plan.
ProtonCalendar is being touted as "the first fully encrypted calendar app" according to Proton Technologies AG Copywriter Richie Koch's post announcing its availability as a beta. Like the app it serves as a companion to, ProtonCalendar is end-to-end encrypted, with every event title, description, location, and participant secured by device-side encryption before they are saved server-side. This ensures that absolutely no third party (including Proton Technologies) can read any aspect of your calendar.
ProtonCalendar is poised as a privacy respecting alternative to the conveniences previously only provided by major services such as Google Calendar that come at the cost of individual privacy. This means it will join the app it serves as a companion to, ProtonMail, as a secure alternative to a major service provided by Google, such as Gmail.
ProtonCalendar is available to anyone that uses a paid ProtonMail plan via the ProtonMail 4.0 beta. Simply click on the new calendar icon in the left-hand side menu.
