Proton launches ‘privacy-first’ alternative to Word and Google Docs – Computerworld


Proton has unveiled an end-to-end encrypted document editor that it said will provide an alternative to Microsoft Word and Google Docs for privacy-conscious users.

Docs in Proton Drive, announced on Wednesday by the Swiss software vendor that’s best known for its encrypted email app, contains many of the document creation features that office workers might expect.

Users can create and edit documents, share with colleagues for real-time collaborative work, leave comments and replies, and import and export common file types such as .docx and .txt. The app is available in Proton Drive, an encrypted cloud storage service launched by the vendor in 2022.
