@protonmail Ppl are saying that you now impose a #Google #CAPTCHA on those who register for new #ProtonMail accts, and that you're requiring a phone number. Is that true?

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo Hi! The numbers that are used for SMS verification are not linked with the created account. We only keep a hash of a number for a certain amount of time to prevent abuse.

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo Hi! It's true for the moment. This is something we require if the IP address a person uses was used before to create multiple ProtonMail accounts. We are looking at an alternative to Google and also offer the possibility to send an invite link to avoid the human verification step.Thank you for your understanding.
