Posted on November 26th, 2019 by in Articles & News.

Update Nov. 30, 2019: Because ProtonVPN only offers discounts once per year, we have decided to extend our Black Friday promotion until 11:59 PM on Dec. 8, 2019, San Francisco. (That’s 2:59 AM Dec. 9 in New York and 8:59 AM Dec. 9 in Geneva, Switzerland.) This extension will give anyone who wasn’t able to take advantage of the deal last week one extra week to save between 33% and 50% on ProtonMail Plus, ProtonVPN Plus, or both.

For a limited time only, new users and users on our free plan can get ProtonVPN Plus for between 33% and 50% off with one of our special Black Friday deals. You can also get a deal on a ProtonMail/ProtonVPN package, helping you keep even more of your data private. 

Our Black Friday promotion will run from today until Friday, Nov. 29, after which it will no longer be possible to get ProtonVPN at a discount. Sign up for ProtonVPN or log in to your account to get the deal now. (Update: We have extended our Black Friday promotion until 11:59 PM on Dec. 8, 2019, San Francisco time.)

The perfect time to upgrade your Free plan

ProtonVPN is created by the same scientists and engineers who built ProtonMail and trusted by millions of users to protect their privacy and unblock content online. Black Friday is the best time to support our mission while gaining access to premium features like the ability to stream your favorite shows no matter where you are and tap into higher speeds in 40+ countries.

If you currently have ProtonVPN’s Free plan, you can access the Black Friday deal by logging in at

A ProtonVPN Plus plan gives you these exclusive benefits:

  • Faster connections with access to 560+ ProtonVPN servers in 43 countries
  • Advanced protection via the Secure Core network against sophisticated surveillance
  • More freedom with connections for 5 devices, one-click Tor access, and support for file sharing/BitTorrent and streaming of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney+, sporting events, and many more

Black Friday for existing paid users

Most companies do not have Black Friday offers for existing subscribers, and we may not do so in the future. However, this year we are bringing back 2-year plans for existing paid users. If you’re already a paying user, you can get a 33% discount on any subscription with a 2-year plan. If you get a 2-year plan that has both ProtonVPN and ProtonMail, you can get an additional 20% off for a total of nearly 50% off.

To get the promotion, you must first log in to your ProtonVPN account. Inside your Dashboard, you will need to choose the 2-year (33% Off) option from the drop-down billing cycle menu.

You can use the 33% discount to upgrade to any paid plan. (This 33% discount is available for Basic and Visionary subscriptions as well.) 

With this deal — combined with the extra VPN connections upgrades which existing paid users recently received for free — we’re providing even more value to those who have supported our mission the longest.

Your support fuels our progress

We created ProtonVPN to expand online privacy, give you secure Internet anywhere, and restore access to blocked and censored content. Unfortunately, as we have seen this year, there are many companies and governments that feel they should have access to and control over your data.

That’s why we’re doubling down on expanding our service and hardening our network against advanced attacks and censorship. With your support, we’re adding new technologies that will allow users to access ProtonVPN even in countries where VPNs are blocked. We’re also open sourcing our apps, adding ad blocking, and launching support for even more video streaming platforms (Netflix, Hulu, BBC, Amazon Prime, etc. are already supported). 

Black Friday offers for ProtonMail

All ProtonVPN accounts come with access to ProtonMail using the same Proton login credentials. Your ProtonMail account is secured with end-to-end encryption and zero-access encryption, meaning no one else can access your emails, not even us.

ProtonMail Plus gives you a more powerful inbox with five email addresses, custom folders and labels, custom filters, and the option to host emails for a custom domain (e.g. 

You can get the Black Friday bundle including ProtonVPN Plus and ProtonMail Plus together for 50% off the normal price. Here’s how:

  • New users (those who don’t already have a Proton account) can access this promotion on our Black Friday page.
  • Existing free users (i.e. you have free ProtonMail and/or ProtonVPN accounts) can access this promotion by logging in at and clicking on the Black Friday button.
  • Existing paid users can access this promotion at and going to Settings -> Dashboard, selecting a 2-year plan, and selecting any paid ProtonMail plan with a paid ProtonVPN plan. At checkout, the 33% 2-year discount will be combined with a 20% bundle discount, which gives you approximately 50% off.

If you would like to get ProtonMail Plus on its own, you can get between 33% and 40% off. 

  • New users (those without Proton accounts) can access this promotion on our Black Friday page.
  • Existing free users can access this promotion by logging in with your Proton account at and clicking the Black Friday icon in the top bar.

Thanks for being a part of our mission!

We’re fortunate to have a like-minded and enthusiastic community, without whom ProtonVPN wouldn’t exist. It is your support that lets us develop new and exciting products for the future.

For existing free users, you can log in at and click on the Black Friday button. For existing paying users, you can get 33% off by switching to a 2-year billing cycle by going to your account settings at and choosing the 2-year billing cycle inside your dashboard. The discount increases to nearly 50% off if you get both ProtonVPN and ProtonMail together with your 2-year subscription.

What if I also want to get ProtonMail?

See details in the blog post above.

Is there a Black Friday offer for Visionary Plans?

Yes, it is possible to get a 33% discount on Visionary by subscribing to a 2-year plan. Details can be found in the “Black Friday for existing paid users” section above.

What happens to my existing paid plan?

If you are already a paying ProtonMail or ProtonVPN user and you take advantage of this promotion, the new plan you select will replace your existing plan. However, when you go to check out, we will automatically credit you the unused balance of your existing subscription, and this is added as a proration credit. Thus, you don’t lose the money you paid for your existing plan.

Will I keep the discount when my plan runs out? What price will my plan renew at?

At the end of your subscription period (one or two years, depending on the plan you chose), your plan will automatically renew with the following discounts:

  • 1-year plan (20% discount)
  • 2-year plan (33% discount)
  • 2-year plan (ProtonMail + ProtonVPN bundle) (47% discount)

What if I got the Black Friday deal in the past, can I get this deal?

You don’t need to get this deal because you already got the deal. Previous Black Friday offers were for 2-year plans, which will automatically renew with a 33-47% discount depending on which offer you purchased previously.

Can I pay for a Black Friday deal using Bitcoin?

You can pay in Bitcoin to get the Black Friday deal but not from the landing page or from your account dashboard directly. If you have never used our service before, you have to sign up, go to Settings -> Dashboard, click on the “Add credits” button, choose Bitcoin as your payment method, add a sufficient amount for the promotion you’d like to get, and submit it. Afterwards, when you choose a promotion, the credits will be automatically applied.

What if I don’t see the Black Friday deal in my Dashboard?

Try refreshing the page. If you still don’t see it, please contact Support.

How are discounts calculated?

The discount percentages are based on the difference between the monthly discount offer price and the regular monthly price for each plan.

    No promo BF/CM offer for basic plan?

  3. Possible customer

    Does your paid vpn block ads?

  4. Richie Koch

    While our VPN does not yet have an ad blocker, this feature is on our list of things to add for 2020. Keep your eye on our Twitter feed for the latest developments!

  5. Possible customer

    Do you accept paypal?

  6. Richie Koch

    We do! As well as credit card for Black Friday specials

  7. Metric

    I have been waiting for this sale since the summer. While others offer 50-70 or even around 90% discounts for long-term plans, your additional 13% for a 2-year plan looks like an evil taunt. Lost so much time and nothing in the end … sad.

  8. kumo

    I see BlackFriday promotion for ProtonVPN Plus comparing with the regular pricing. Isn’t it misleading to compare the promotion with ProtonVPN Plus at 10€/month, while in fact it’s 8€/month? So on a 2-year plan at 6€/month, it’s actually 25% discount and not 40%
