Illustration of ProtonVPN language support

Proton VPN is now available in 6 more languages!

Together with our community of translators, we’re excited to announce that you can now use Proton VPN in Dutch, French, Italian, Polish, Spanish, and Portuguese. As part of our mission to make privacy tools accessible to everyone, we’re working to deliver Proton apps to more people in their native language.

You can start using these languages immediately in the latest version of the Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows apps. We’re also closer to releasing language support for the Proton VPN website, and we’ll post further updates as more languages become available on more apps.

How to access Proton VPN in your language

If you are an existing Proton VPN user:

Update to the latest version of the app to switch to one of these six languages. MacOS and Windows users will get a notification asking them to update, while iOS systems will automatically update Proton VPN.

If you are using MacOS, you can switch between languages in System Preferences. Select Language & Region, click on Apps and select Proton VPN and your preferred language. 

On iOS, go to your system Settings and select Proton VPN. You can then choose your preferred language.

Windows and Android don’t allow you to choose a language in Proton VPN settings. It will display the app only in the system language. Here’s a guide on how to change your Windows system language(new window). If you are using an Android device, you can change your system language by going to Settings, selecting System, and then navigating to Languages & Input. 

If you are a new user:

Proton VPN will detect whether your operating system is set to one of the languages on this list. If it is, your app will automatically default to that language. Otherwise, Proton VPN will be in English.

Bringing privacy and Internet freedom to everyone, everywhere 

Our mission is to make the Internet safer for everyone, no matter where you are or what language you speak. 

Proton VPN breaks down barriers by routing your web traffic through an encrypted tunnel. This helps keep you safe from government and corporate surveillance while liberating censored or blocked information online. 

Making Proton VPN available to as many people as possible in their native language is an important part of this effort, and we couldn’t have done this without the help of our community of translators. By removing language barriers, the Proton community is making it easier to stay connected.

Language support is especially important in places where Internet freedom is often restricted, such as Iran, Russia, and China. Over the next several months, we are prioritizing translation for these languages and others — and we’re providing alternative ways to download Proton VPN(new window) in the event our website is blocked(new window)

In the coming months, we will increase the number of available servers across the globe, giving you faster speeds and better stability in countries with low bandwidth. And our engineers are also working on further security and anti-censorship features. 

Thank you for supporting our mission.
