Proton launches a privacy-first alternative to Google Calendar for Android

Building on its VPN and secure messaging service, Proton has launched an encrypted calendar app for Android as part of its mission to create a better Internet where privacy is the default.

Proton Calendar first launched on desktop in 2020, and last year the company released a beta version of its crypto mobile calendar app.

While securing your calendar might not be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to protecting your privacy, it actually contains a lot of personal data, including who you meet and where you meet. you meet. Because this information deserves the same level of protection as your email and files, Proton has stepped up its efforts to create the most secure calendar available.

Unlike other calendar apps, all event details including event names, attendees, locations, notes and descriptions in Proton Calendar are fully encrypted to prevent others from accessing your timetable.

Proton Calendar for Android includes a full set of advanced features so that it can easily replace Google Calendar or any other calendar app you currently use.

With Proton Calendar installed on your Android smartphone, you can easily switch between day, calendar and month view to see your calendar the way you want and Proton has also created a widget that you can add to your home screen to an overview of your upcoming events.

Proton has even included a light mode and a dark mode with the ability to easily switch between the two as well as the ability to set multiple reminders on your phone and email to make sure you’re always on time.
