ProtonVPN’s mission is to make advanced online privacy and security available to everyone. With ProtonVPN, you can:
- Protect your privacy by hiding your IP address
- Browse the web securely (even on public WiFi)
ProtonVPN is a community-supported VPN developed by the same team of scientists that created ProtonMail, the world’s largest encrypted email service. ProtonVPN has a free plan so anybody can use it. You can upgrade to a paid plan to unlock all features.
- NO LOGS. EVER
ProtonVPN is a no logs VPN service. We do not track or record your Internet activity, and therefore, cannot disclose this information to third parties.
- STRONG ENCRYPTION
Our VPN app for iOS uses the IKEv2 protocol. We use only the highest-strength encryption to protect your Internet connection. This means all your network traffic is encrypted with AES-256 and uses 2048-bit RSA key exchange.
- PERFECT FORWARD SECRECY
ProtonVPN uses ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy, meaning your encrypted traffic cannot be captured and decrypted later, even if an encryption key gets compromised in the future.
- SWISS BASED
ProtonVPN is a Swiss company, which means you are protected by some of the strongest privacy regulations in the world.
Unlike other VPN services, we provide full transparency so you know who is running the service. Whether it is challenging governments, educating the public, or training journalists, we are well known for fighting for privacy online and contributing to the open source community.
ProtonVPN is the ONLY free VPN service that has no privacy invading ads, no malware, no bandwidth limits, and does not secretly sell user data. The free service is supported by optional paid plans that come with more servers and more features.
Paid ProtonVPN plans come with additional features, such as:
- HIGH SPEED GLOBAL NETWORK
ProtonVPN has hundreds of servers located all around the world, accessible via a single click. All servers are on high speed 1 Gbit or 10 Gbit connections. Free users can only access slower servers in 3 countries.
- SECURE CORE VPN
Regular VPN services can be compromised if their servers are under surveillance. ProtonVPN prevents this by first passing user traffic through our Secure Core network in privacy-friendly countries like Switzerland and Iceland. Thus, even a compromised VPN endpoint server will not reveal your true IP address. Secure Core is available for ProtonVPN Plus & ProtonVPN Visionary users.
- TOR VPN
ProtonVPN Plus & ProtonVPN Visionary include Tor support. With a single click, you can route all your traffic through the Tor network and access Onion sites.

Ratings and Reviews
The best free VPN for PC is now the best free VPN for Mobile.
I used Proton VPN for PC since last year, and haven’t been disappointed. The free features are reliable and meet most people’s basic needs, making upgrading truly feel optional; Optional, but far from redundant as the best servers and several advanced features such as peer-to-peer are locked behind a paid account, for users that feel they would like them or just want to support the developers with their patronage. The moment the mobile app dropped I downloaded it, and have not been disappointed as it provides the same quality, reliability, and stability I loved on PC. If you get this app, you will not be disappointed whether you decide to pay money or not.
I pay for ProtonMail and ProtonVPN and have access to the premium servers and really appreciate what ProtonVPN provides its users. The macOS and iOS apps are both pretty decent. Customer service is top tier. I enjoy the reliable and comparatively fast connections. I know who runs the service and trust their privacy and no-logging policies unlike other VPN providers from Eastern Europe and who knows where else. There are a solid number of servers across a good chunk of countries. Connecting using Secure Core from the US to Iceland and Switzerland provides a relatively quick connection.
I do wish their servers in my area were a bit quicker when I want to connect locally while at work and such. (When this service first started as a beta that I tested for them, they contracted with a much better provider with seemingly better throughout and speed and I miss it.) That is my only real complaint but I am still very happy with the service.
I switched from NordVPN as soon as ProtonVPN left beta. ProtonVPN is what I plan to stick with for as long as it’s around.
Finally, thank you for the quick connect widget!
Subterranean servers, and no logs? SOLD
Proton continues to be at the forefront of internet privacy. This app is another great tool that does exactly as advertised, fast speed, no logging, free basic plan-no catch (although I do pay for a premium account, mostly to support proton’s mission because I believe in their values), and their servers are protected under hundreds of meters of solid granite rock protected by Swiss privacy laws. The premium account’s secure core and Tor relay features are great for any extra sensitive exchanges you may require. You can customise many different profiles and quickly change between them as your needs may require.
