Why use VPN
Our secure VPN sends your internet traffic through an encrypted VPN tunnel, so your passwords and confidential data stay safe, even over public or untrusted Internet connections.
Keep your browsing history private. As a Swiss VPN provider, we do not log user activity or share data with third parties. Our anonymous VPN service enables Internet without surveillance.
We created Proton VPN to protect the journalists and activists who use Proton Mail. Proton VPN breaks down the barriers of Internet censorship, allowing you to access any website or content.
Internet security for everyone
Our goal is to make online privacy accessible to all. To do this, we have focused on making the advanced security technology in Proton VPN effortless 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. Proton VPN Free is subsidized by Proton VPN paid users. 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 extensively simplified the Proton VPN interface to make it as intuitive as possible – so you can stay protected every day, hassle free.
Fast VPN Speeds
A 10 Gbps server network combined with our unique suite of VPN Accelerator technologies can improve speeds by over 400%. The advanced network TCP flow control algorithm we utilize provides unparalleled performance and connection stability.
Proton VPN is available on all your devices, including PCs, Macs, smartphones, and even routers. A secure Internet connection that 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 buffering-free. Learn More
VPN Accelerator is a set of technologies unique to Proton VPN that can increase your VPN speeds by over 400%. By overcoming CPU limitations that affect how VPN protocols are processed, using advanced networking techniques to reduce latency, and redesigning VPN protocols themselves to reduce inefficiencies in their code, VPN Accelerator can dramatically increase speed performance.

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 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. Learn More
Perfect forward secrecy
Proton VPN exclusively uses ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy, meaning that your encrypted traffic cannot be captured and decrypted later, even if an encryption key gets compromised in the future. Learn More
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. Learn More
We are headquartered in Switzerland which has some of the world's strongest privacy laws. Switzerland is also outside of EU and US jurisdiction and is not a member of the fourteen eyes surveillance network. Learn More
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. Learn More
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. Learn More

@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)
