Our story began at CERN, where the web was born and where our founding team met. In 2014, on the 25th anniversary of the web, we built ProtonMail to make online privacy a reality again for millions of people around the world. The ProtonVPN project was born out of a need to better protect the activists and journalists that use ProtonMail.

In the years since we began as a crowdfunded project, ProtonMail and ProtonVPN continue to be primarily supported by our community and developed with community input. When it comes to fighting for online security and privacy, we have a long track record. Whether it is challenging governments, educating the public, or training journalists, we're committed to staying on the front lines.

We are scientists, engineers, and developers, and we care deeply about the future of the Internet. We're also experts in security and Internet technologies, and we're applying this expertise for the public good. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.

About ProtonVPN AG

ProtonVPN is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, allowing our users to benefit from some of the world's strongest privacy laws. ProtonVPN is the beneficiary of financial support from both Proton Technologies AG, and also the Fondation Genevoise pour l'Innovation Technologique (FONGIT), a non-profit foundation financed by the Swiss Federal Commission for Technology and Innovation for the public good.

For security reasons, ProtonVPN AG is legally separate from Proton Technologies AG, which operates ProtonMail. For technical security reasons, ProtonVPN and ProtonMail also operate on completely segregated infrastructures. However, ProtonVPN does draw upon the extensive technical knowledge of the team at Proton Technologies AG, along with external partners with extensive VPN expertise. If you are interested in joining the ProtonVPN project, we are hiring.

Our Values


Unlike other VPN services, we provide full transparency so you know who is running the service. We are well known for our work improving Internet security and privacy.


We will always tell you what VPN can and can't protect, as even the best VPN service has limitations. When it come to security, we believe in transparently communicating the threat model.

Security First

ProtonVPN does not use insecure protocols and encryption levels. ProtonVPN benefits from the security experience gained from building the world's largest secure email service.

Technical Excellence

We have a long track record when it comes to security. Whether it's operating our own Secure Core servers for privacy or using 10Gbit networks for performance, quality comes first.


ProtonVPN is community supported and community is everything to us. We provide professional customer support to the entire ProtonVPN community, including free users.


We need to build an Internet where privacy is no longer just an option, but the default.

- Dr. Andy Yen, Proton Technologies AG
