It’s recommended if privacy is on top of your list

This VPN really stood out for me due to its privacy policy towards tracking information, it says it only tracks your OS version and model which is fine by me as long as it ain’t tracking other stuff, this one stood out because a lot of other free VPNs make their money by selling your info to third party’s but this one seems to be against it. There are a few downsides like the awful internet speed on the free plan and the paid plan is a tad pricey, but hey the developers at the end of the day can determine weather it is free or not and I’m great full that it is, just wish there was a free Aussie server lol.

Greatly improved!

After previously giving Proton VPN a 1 star review for disconnecting me way too often, I am very happy to report things have greatly improved!
When adding up the service quality to what Proton stands for and the trust I have in them, the result is a great product with lots of privacy oriented options (such as Tor VPN servers).
I did take back 1 star because Proton’s a very expensive product indeed, especially when comparing with its competitors in privacy oriented VPN providers. But they are still my provider of choice.

Great VPN

I’ve been using ProtonVPN for years now (on the free option), mainly to watch anime on browser since all of the good anime websites are banned in Australia. I haven’t had any significant issues, only issues i have had is that the connection sometimes goes bad, when it’s happens i just disconnect and reconnect. It can also get annoying if you haven’t used the VPN for a while it automatically logs you out. I recommend this VPN to everyone if they are using it for browser, i’ve never used it for netflix so i’m not sure if it works on that.

Thank you for your rating and review, we're glad you're happy with our Free Plan. Please note that we cannot guarantee seamless streaming support for our Free and Basic plans - only for our Plus and Visionary plans, but we're glad Free has been working for you too! If you'd like to support us, you can always tell people you know about ProtonVPN! Have a great day!
