Together with our community of translators, we’re excited to announce that you can now use ProtonVPN 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 ProtonVPN website, and we’ll post further updates as more languages become available on more apps.

How to access ProtonVPN in your language

If you are an existing ProtonVPN 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 ProtonVPN.

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

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

Windows and Android don’t allow you to choose a language in ProtonVPN settings. It will display the app only in the system language. Here’s a guide on how to change your Windows system language. 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:

ProtonVPN 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, ProtonVPN 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. 

ProtonVPN 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 ProtonVPN 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 ProtonVPN in the event our website is blocked

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.

    Hi JK,

    We are working hard on expanding the number of available languages.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for your response.
    But your policy of translating your apps gradually, based on the number of users you have, is completely wrong and doesn’t benefit you financially because you probably don’t know how the Greek market works and the correct market management policy.
    I will give you some striking examples.
    A few years ago, quite a few antivirus applications and vpn were in English and had few users
    (Windscribe vpn,Avast,Bitdefender,Kaspersky,etc).
    But when they were translated into Greek,became popular in the Greek market and today they have hundreds of thousands of users.
    I hope you have a grasp of what smart market management means
    They knew, you didn’t.
    Because I know you,when you say ”We have, of course, included Greek on our list of languages and we hope to start working on this soon”,you just fool me.
    Who cares;

    You have translated your products into all European languages except Greek.
    I hope you know that Greece belongs to Europe.
    Do you plan to translate your products into the Greek language and within how many years?
    I just want to know not to wait unjustly.
    Unless Greece is not to your liking and you feel disgust for my country.
    I don’t see any other explanation, do you?

    Regards,
    Chris

    Hi Christos,

    We’re very happy to hear that our users are excited about getting ProtonVPN in their native language – our mission is to make privacy tools accessible to everyone. We translate our apps gradually, based on the number of users we have. We have, of course, included Greek on our list of languages and we hope to start working on this soon.

    Thank you!
