I suggest you ...

(Beta) Don't log IP address

I see that the beta version logs IP addresses...could you get rid of that feature please? Or just make it optional, and don't log IP by default?

Thanks for your feedback. As this is an important security feature, we have asked the community how they would like to see this feature in detail: https://www.reddit.com/r/tutanota/comments/8abisz/new_client_stores_your_ip_address_encrypted_for/

As you requested, in the future the IP log feature must be atcivated by the user to guarantee everyone’s need for privacy is respected. We have now started this feature so we can change the encrypted IP log feature to opt-in before pushing the new client out of beta.

If you want to support our fight for privacy, please upgrade to Premium for only 1 € per month. :) Thank you!

    Will this be valid for those already using the beta client?
    The user should be allowed to clear the log themselves, and those who weren't given a choice in the months leading up to this should be asked to opt in again.

    Completely pointless feature change if you have said that no one but the user can access the IP info, as it is encrypted. Right?

    Or pay a less-untrustworthy OpenVPN provider.

    Perhaps you mean you would prefer the email X-Headers not reveal your local device IP address? Solved the same way.

    Oh.. That data is encrypted and only you can see it! Untill you compromise your password...

    If you don't want that shit then log in to beta via tor and then never use beta client, instead use the stable one till they implement a feature to turn it off.
