What do you understand by 'really secure'? I live in a small (population
10+k) quiet redneck mountain town. So far I leave my bike in front of a
shop when I do my errands. And leaving it unlocked for up to 30 minutes
has been really secure. I have a feeling you mean something else by
those words.

Protonmail sounds very insecure. I have never used their services, but I
fail to see where I can keep and backup "my" keys or how can I prevent
them from using "my" key. So to me it sounds just like the lies of
HideMyAss. Hopefully, somebody more informed can set the record straight.
