An illustration of servers in Hungary.

Hungary is the newest country to join the Proton VPN network

You can connect to our new servers in Hungary to unblock content and protect your Internet traffic while you use public WiFi. Hungary is the 51st country to join the Proton VPN network. These new servers let you browse the Internet with a Hungarian IP address and give you more options to secure your online activity in Eastern Europe. 

We installed eight new VPN servers in a data center in Budapest, Hungary. 

They are available to users on one of our paid plans(new window). Each new server we install increases our capacity for new users and improves service for current users.

HU#1-3 are available on our Basic plan.
HU#4-8 are available on our Plus and Visionary plans.

The benefits of Hungarian VPN servers

These servers will allow Hungarians traveling abroad to maintain a virtual residence in Hungary, no matter where they are. They will also allow anyone around the globe to access geo-restricted content on Hungarian websites.

If you are currently located in Hungary, these local servers will be our fastest option if you want to protect your online activity from surveillance by Internet service providers and network administrators.

Now that these eight servers are online, you can browse with a Hungarian IP address and protect your Internet traffic with an extra layer of encryption.
