How do you know WhatsApp Web isn’t spying on your messages, despite the end-to-end encryption? Why did Signal decide to build a desktop application instead of a web app? At ProtonMail, we’re aiming to build a web application that gives users the guarantee that we are physically unable to read their email, even if we wanted to. This comes with a set of unique challenges: how can the user trust the source code that comes from our server (without reading it each time), and how can the user trust the public keys that they receive (without hosting key signing parties, however fun they may be :)).
