Lithuania is the 42nd country, and the last member of the Baltic states, to have its own Proton VPN servers. No matter where you are in Baltic region, you can securely and privately browse the Internet with a local IP address.
We installed eight new VPN servers in a data center in Siauliai. They are available to users on one of our paid plans. Each new server we install increases our capacity for new users and improves service for our current users.
LT#1-3 are available on our Basic plan.
LT#4-8 are available on our Plus and Visionary plans.
Why servers in Lithuania are important
Lithuania takes cybersecurity seriously. Every year, its National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) releases a report on the state of IT security in the country. It covers what attacks were most common and what Lithuanians can do to mitigate their vulnerability. According to their 2018 report, the NCSC investigated 53,183 IT security incidents last year. The report also shows there was an increase in social engineering attacks, which are attacks like phishing and luring users to fake websites.
One of the pieces of advice the NCSC report gives to thwart these attacks is to make sure your Internet session is encrypted. These new Proton VPN servers will allow Lithuanians to send their Internet traffic through an encrypted VPN tunnel while still letting them browse the Internet with a Lithuanian IP address. This encryption will prevent their Internet service provider, the administrator of your local WiFi hotspot, and any other attackers from monitoring your online activity.
To be even more secure, Proton VPN Plus or Visionary users can activate our Secure Core feature. First, Secure Core routes your Internet traffic through a hardened server before sending it on to an exit server in your desired country. These hardened servers are controlled and owned by Proton VPN, making it less likely that an attacker could access them. By routing your traffic through two servers, Secure Core offers you protection from advanced network attacks.
