Why use VPN
Our secure VPN sends your internet traffic through an encrypted VPN tunnel to keep your browsing data safe, even over public or untrusted internet connections.
As a Swiss VPN provider, we do not log user activity or share data with third parties. Our anonymous VPN service keeps your browsing history private and enables an internet without surveillance.
We created Proton VPN to further protect the journalists, activists, and everyday citizens who use Proton Mail. Proton VPN breaks down the barriers of internet censorship, allowing you to access restricted online content.
Internet security for everyone
Our goal is to make online privacy accessible to all. We have focused on making the advanced security technology in Proton VPN easy to use and freely available.
We believe privacy and security are fundamental human rights, so we also provide a free version of Proton VPN to the public. Unlike other free VPNs, there are no catches. We don't serve ads or secretly sell your browsing history. We are able to provide Proton VPN Free thanks to people who subscribe to a Proton VPN paid plan. If you would like to support online privacy, please consider upgrading to a paid plan for faster speeds and more features.
Easy to use
The best security tools in the world will only protect you if used correctly and consistently. We have simplified the Proton VPN interface to make it as intuitive as possible on all of your devices — so you can stay protected every day, hassle free.
Fast VPN speeds
Proton VPN uses a 10 Gbps server network combined with our unique suite of VPN Accelerator technologies to improve speeds by up to 400%. We use an advanced network TCP flow control algorithm to provide unparalleled performance and connection stability without compromising on security.
Proton VPN is available on all your devices, including PCs, Macs, smartphones, and even routers. A secure internet connection you can trust is essential to maintaining your privacy on your laptop at home, your mobile device on the road, or your workstation at the office. Proton VPN has native apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Chromebook, Android, Android TV and iOS/iPadOS.
Stream from anywhere
Proton VPN unblocks a wide selection of popular online media services, allowing you to access your favorite streaming content from anywhere in the world as if you were at home. Our fast server network and unique VPN Accelerator technology also ensure your experience is smooth and free of buffering.
VPN Accelerator is a set of technologies unique to Proton VPN that can increase your VPN speeds by up to 400%. We created VPN Accelerator to dramatically increase speed and performance by overcoming CPU limitations, using advanced networking techniques, and redesigning VPN protocols themselves..
Global VPN server network
Proton VPN has hundreds of secure VPN servers all around the world, including several free VPN servers. This ensures there is always a high-bandwidth server nearby no matter where you are connecting from, providing a low-latency VPN connection for browsing, streaming, and bypassing censorship.

We are the scientists, engineers, and cryptographers who built Proton Mail
The world's largest encrypted email service
Our story begins where the web was born - at CERN, where our founding team of scientists met.
Like Proton Mail, Proton VPN is a community supported project with a simple goal: to build a safer internet that also protects civil liberties.
Unique features for a more secure VPN
Unlike other VPN services, Proton VPN is designed with security as the main focus, drawing upon the lessons we have learned from working with journalists and activists in the field.
Regular VPN services can be compromised if their servers are under surveillance. Proton VPN mitigates this by passing your traffic through our Secure Core network in privacy-friendly countries like Switzerland and Iceland first. By routing your traffic through a privacy-friendly country, we keep your true IP address hidden even if an attacker compromises the endpoint server.
Perfect forward secrecy
Proton VPN exclusively uses ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy, meaning your encrypted traffic can’t be captured and decrypted later.
NetShield is a DNS filtering feature that protects you from malware, blocks ads, and prevents website trackers from following you as you surf the web.
Proton VPN is a no logs VPN service. We do not track or record your internet activity, and therefore we are unable to disclose this information to third parties.
Tor over VPN
Proton VPN also integrates with the Tor anonymity network. With a single click, you can route all your traffic through the Tor network and access Onion sites.

@ProtonVPN(new window) Wanted to thank you for the outstanding service your company offers - I have used vpn service over the years, and seen many. The speed and reliability of your client software surprised me, instantly - it's World Class, and better.
Wow! My telecom, Telenor, just gifted a double up for 3 months to 150/150 Mb/s. Tips hat, but even more impressive running the speedtest while using @ProtonVPN(new window) I got 125/100 Mb/s!!!! That is 12 times the speed I got from previous service. h/t @ProtonMail(new window)
My personal recommendation is @ProtonVPN(new window) which has a free tier that you can use forever. It doesn't keep logs so even if someone did try and make hem hand over data, there's nothing to hand over. It's quick, easy to use and easy to set up on your phone and PC.
Netflix is far better with a brilliant VPN service...thanks @ProtonVPN(new window)
