    PayPal freezes ProtonMail IndieGoGo payment. Asks, FedGov approval to encrypt e-mail?

    While the $275,000 ProtonMail has raised in the past 2 weeks is a large amount, it pales in comparison to many other crowdfunding campaigns that have raised sums in excess of $1,000,000 so we can’t help but wonder why ProtonMail was singled out. When we pressed the PayPal representative on the phone for further details, he questioned whether ProtonMail is legal and if we have government approval to encrypt emails. We are not sure which government PayPal is referring to, but even the 4th Amendment of the US constitution guarantees:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures…

    It seems PayPal is trying to come up with ANY excuse they can to prevent us from receiving funds
