After a long wait — and lots of interest from our users — we are happy to announce that our iOS Beta app is ready. Find out how you can test our iOS app before it is released to the public.
For the first time ever, you can protect your personal data with ProtonVPN on your iOS device with our official application. Users with Plus and Visionary accounts can begin testing our Beta app and enjoying all our advanced security features — including our Secure Core servers, Kill Switch feature, and Secure Streaming. We would like to thank the entire ProtonVPN community for your patience and continued support. Over the past year, we received hundreds of messages asking about the iOS application, so the pressure was real.
There were friendly reminders:

The time has finally come and today we are releasing our iOS Beta app. With your support and feedback during this Beta period, we hope to make it the best iOS VPN app ever.

Our iOS app will offer several advantages over other OpenVPN apps. These benefits include:

- Quick connection to any country with a single tap;
- Easy-to-create and -save custom connection profiles;
- Our VPN Kill Switch feature;
- Automatic detection of new servers;
- And automatic server status updates.
