    I was wondering why Proton doesn't use a Extended Validation certificate

    I see that Scrypt uses it.

    It appears that ProtonMail does in fact have an EV certificate:

    I was going by,& thought it will look like the 1 in the capture for Scrypt.Notice the green text on the left,Proton doesn't have this green text.

    ProtonMail does for me.

    What happens if you click the yellow warning? Maybe you're using a web browser that has an issue? I'm using standard and latest Chrome for my screen shot.

    I click the yellow triangle & it states,"connection is not secure,parts of this page are not secure(such as images)".

    Probably the links in the inbox might not be secure,i didn't know this has anything to do with the EV.

    I use CID browser.
