ProtonVPN has eight servers in Taiwan.

Another step forward supporting access to information in Asia

We’re excited to finally introduce our first VPN servers in Taiwan. While Taiwan servers have been available for some time, we recently upgraded to a higher performance network in Taipei, which is why we are finally announcing them. With the addition of these servers, we now have high-speed VPN servers in 5 locations in Asia (Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore) to better serve the Asia Pacific region.

In light of recent events(new window), this addition to the Proton VPN network comes at a crucial moment for our users in Asia. In times like these, access to reliable information is more important than ever and critical for sustaining democracy.

We have selected Taiwan as one of our main locations as we build out our network in Asia in part because of its strong foundation for democracy and freedom. Taiwan is home to a robust independent press and civil society groups, and it is the world’s only democratic Chinese society. Taiwan has long been a beacon of democracy in Asia, and is a compelling example of the transformative powers of freedom.

About our Taiwan VPN servers

We installed eight new VPN servers in a data center in Taipei. They are available to users on one of our paid plans(new window).

TW#5-7 are available on our Basic plan.
TW#8-12 are available on our Plus and Visionary plans.

These servers add to our 54 other servers throughout the region, including in Hong Kong, South Korea, and Japan. These include 3 Free plan servers in Japan, a one-click Tor server in Hong Kong, and dedicated VPN servers for BitTorrent in Singapore.

Our commitment to human rights in Asia

We believe that digital freedom is a fundamental human right, and our mission is to make sure everyone has access to an Internet that respects their privacy, security, and freedom. Technology has the power to unlock liberty for people around the world, provided the technology is accessible and free.

At Proton, we develop tools that help all people exercise their rights and freedoms, including Proton VPN, Proton Mail(new window), our encrypted email service, and Proton Calendar(new window), our private calendar.

We don’t just build technology, however. We also actively support the communities and projects that are pushing democracy forward, including in Asia. Whether it is providing safe communication(new window) services to activists and protesters on the front lines in Hong Kong, or lobbying for greater privacy protections(new window) around the world, we fight for the civil liberties that are essential for a democratic society. This is also why we contribute to numerous open source(new window) projects and continuously develop our own anti-censorship(new window) capabilities.

In part because of Taiwan’s strong stance on democracy and human rights, we’re also proud to have an engineering office in Taipei, as part of our effort to keep Proton operating 24/7. We hope our footprint there will only continue to grow in the future.
