Proton, the maker of Proton VPN, Proton Mail, Proton Drive, and other privacy-focused services, announced the acquisition of Standard Notes, a privacy-minded note-taking app. It is Proton's second acquisition after joining forces with SimpleLogin in 2022.

Standard Notes is an end-to-end encrypted note app available on desktop platforms, web, and mobile devices with over 300,000 active users. Proton says the two companies share the same goal of giving users services that protect their privacy:
"Standard Notes has been around since 2017 and has withstood the test of time. Standard Notes has also grown without venture capital funding and has demonstrated a commitment towards serving its community. This alignment in values is rare, and creates a natural fit to work together. We are proud to have the entire Standard Notes team join us on our journey, and we look forward to learning from them and growing stronger together. But most of all, we look forward to continuing to serve both the Proton and Standard Notes communities together in the years to come."
