Proton VPN Transparency Report & Warrant Canary

This page is updated whenever there is a notable new legal request. This post was last updated on April 5, 2024.

To be counted here as a legal request for information, the request must come through official channels foreign or domestic (either a court order, directly from a government entity, or from legal/security departments of corporations). The only legally binding requests are ones from the Swiss courts that we are legally obligated to comply with. Under Swiss data protection regulations, we cannot legally comply with foreign requests that are not supported by a Swiss court order.

Under Swiss law, Proton VPN is not obligated to save connection logs, and we adhere to a strict no-logs VPN policy(new window). Therefore, we are unable to comply with requests for user connection logs, even if they are legally binding. Furthermore, under Swiss law, a Warrant Canary is not meaningful, because under Swiss law, the target of a surveillance or data request must always be eventually notified, so they have the opportunity to contest the data request.

A listing of notable legal requests is provided below:

2023

  • Total orders: 60
  • Denied orders : 60

All requests have been from authorities trying to identify who was connected to a specific server at a specific time based on a server IP and timestamp, which we cannot do.

January 2019

A data request from a foreign country was approved by the Swiss court system. However, as we do not have any customer IP information, we could not provide the requested information and this was explained to the requesting party.
