Your support enables us to protect millions around the world. You can cancel your subscription at anytime by logging into your account.

Don't remember making this purchase?

If Proton Mail or Proton VPN doesn't sound familiar to you, first ask the other people who have access to your credit card. Most of the time, somebody else in your family or office made the purchase.

If nobody can remember making the purchase, then we have bad news for you. It means that your credit card or identity has been stolen by criminals. Please call the bank and report your credit card as stolen. You can also contact us at contact@protonvpn.com to report that your credit card was fraudulently used.

If my card was stolen, should I file a dispute?

Do not file a chargeback or dispute the charge. It is very important that you instead report your credit card as stolen so the bank can issue you a new card. If you file a chargeback or dispute, your credit card can continue to be misused.

I think I was charged the wrong amount.
