I have seen loads of reviews of Proton Mail & Proton VPN saying that, there is no way to sign up anonymously.
This is partly true as if you try to sign-up using Tor they may ask you for a email address or phone number.
This guide is to help you get a Proton Account anonymously.
Be aware - you will never be 100% anonymous online, this guide gives you the most anonymous Proton Account you can get.
You must know how to use Tor and understand all the
things that it does not protect against.
Use common sense.
This is pretty obvious, don’t do anything Illegal
as this makes the Tor network frowned upon.
It is recommended you use an OS other than Windows but,
Windows will still work fine.
I will use TB instead of Tor Browser throghout this guide.
Download the TB from https://torproject.org
Set-up the TB, guides can be found on https://torproject.org
Go to https://mail.tutanota.com using the TB and sign up for a new free account. Use the steps in Step 4 to sign up. You will be prompted to wait 24-48 hours for your free account to be able to send and receive emails. Wait that period.
Sign-up for an account;
- Use a random alias for the username
- Use a good, strong password
Sign up for a Proton Account using Step 4. When asked to verify your account simply use your Tutanota email address and… your done!
Always use the TB for both of these accounts and never download the mobile apps and/or use a normal browser to access them as it defeats the whole purpose.
Be careful what you share when sending email etc…
If you use the VPN (or Proton Drive and Proton Calendar) as well keep in mind, never put all your eggs in one basket.
1. If there are any mistakes let me know.
2. Again, this will not make you 100% anonymous
3. Remember, these accounts are anonymous, do not use them outside of the TB or to do anything personal.
4. You may have to reset the circuit on the TB as, Tutanota sometimes blocks IP Addresses from signing up.
5. The signing up for a Tutanota account part in this guide will not matter if you are able to verify the Proton account with a CAPTCHA.
