Great at what it does, except for one thing…

As someone who already uses Protonmail, getting ProtonVPN as my VPN provider was a no-brainer, especially as I got to upgrade my Protonmail account in the process. While I have a wide variety of servers to choose from, the one aspect I found particularly annoying was that ProtonVPN would always default to a US-based server whenever it could. As someone based in the US, being able to connect to a foreign server was a major selling point for me, but not only is there no way to configure a profile to never connect to a US-based server, the app would automatically connect me to one if I lost a connection to another server I was already connected to at times. There needs to be a way to exclude specific countries within connection profiles to best enhance privacy and security.

Thank you for your feedback. Did you know you could set up custom profiles to facilitate connecting to servers in other countries (and even specific servers) in a single click? Feel free to give it a try, and let us know if that addresses your needs.

Read and learn what a VPN is, so you can know what preferences you are missing!

I have had Proton mail and Proton VPN for years. I read several reviews that were bad. Almost all was because the person just did not know where to look to change a preference or just does not know anything about how a VPN works. I have set up several profiles as to where I want to connect. Always use Secure Core. I like that I can change to any location, just by clicking on a profile I created. If one profile server speed is slow, I click on another. Guys, read the instructions and learn how a VPN works, it’s capabilities and how to customize it like you want it. Whatever VPN you use, make sure the servers are not in the U. S. And a country that is big on people’s right to privacy. Sad but true, the U.S is at the top of collecting, mining & spying. And I don’t support using VPN’s for criminal activities. I was an LEO for 27 yrs and I do not believe in just grabbing everyone’s metadata off their cells at a Super Bowl just because they can. Get a warrant!!

In closing, I tried dozens of VPN’s and then ran many security test over the years . Proton passes them all. The only way Proton will fail it’s customer base, is folding from political pressure. But I think these guys & girls work at Proton for a reason. And that reason is because privacy matters.

Dont look anywhere else, this is where you need to be

Iam using proton services for years now and if iam to be fare i should say this: PROTON IS FANTASTIC!!! The most reliable vpn in the entire app store is this one, its durable and with reasonable speed and it keep you secure on web!!! And thats all for the free version imagine that you actually buy a membership, i cant even think of the speed and extra services and stuff that they offer in pro versions, i cant buy it though because i live in iran and we have almost no access to the international banking transactions thanks to the unlawful US government.😒 but it doesnt stop me from using the free version and it make a whole lots of different for us in limitation, thank you proton for providing this service for us, its so hard to find a good, reliable and trustworthy vpn out there who wont steal your data or use them in whatever shady plan they have in mind, thank you indeed, you are truely the best.🙂🙃🤗😌
