Illustration of Italian VPN servers

Italian VPN servers are now available in Proton VPN!

UPDATE March 19, 2020: In response to high demand during the coronavirus lockdown, we added eight more Italian VPN servers today to keep our community connected and safe online. Here are the new servers:

IT #5-7 are available for Basic plans.
IT #8-12 are available for Plus and Visionary plans.


We’re continually improving and expanding Proton VPN. Whether it’s our new macOS VPN app(new window) or the launch today of Italian VPN servers, we are committed to giving our community a better and better service.

Italy VPN servers were in high demand from users. With this latest addition, Proton VPN now offers servers in 15 countries on four continents, and we’re working to add more all the time. The four servers are in Milan and available to those with paid plans:

IT #1-2 are available for Basic plans.
IT #3-4 are available for Plus and Visionary plans.

By securing your Internet connection through our Italy VPN servers, you will not only be able to browse with an Italian IP address, you will also be able to access more content online. We have tested streaming on Hulu, HBO GO, ZDF, Channel4, and Channel5, and all are accessible via our new Italian VPN servers.

Because our top priority is security, the Italian servers can be used with Secure Core(new window), our advanced security feature designed to defend users against network-based attacks. A sophisticated attacker, such as a state surveillance agency, can easily monitor a user’s Internet activity by gaining control of a VPN server or its upstream network. We mitigate this threat by first passing users’ connections through a Secure Core server that we control in Iceland, Switzerland, or Sweden, countries with very strong privacy laws.

We’re proud to be a community-funded project, and we take your feedback seriously. As we continue to expand into other countries, please let us know in the comments what country you would like us to add next.
