@CKsTechnologyNews I am not sure who is at fault here. Protonmail who claim to be all about privacy but miss to provide clear message that they will comply with all lawfully issued warrants or the activist who did not realise that they are doing something dangerous and did not use VPN to sort our their IP address and did not make effort to spoof their device signature.
