ProtonVPN Servers Poll Results 2019

The results of the second Proton VPN servers poll are in – Mexico gets top place

On May 30, we held our second poll to ask you where you want us to install new VPN servers. Thousands of you responded, and today we are ready to announce the results.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our second VPN servers poll! We’re serious about serving our community, and we try to involve you in our decision process wherever possible. In this case, almost 5,000 people voiced their opinion in our latest poll, which asked where you want us to prioritize new servers. We have tallied the results, and we are already working on adding new servers in the countries you deemed the most important.

We will announce each new server as soon as it comes online on our social media channels, so keep an eye on our Twitter(new window) feed and Facebook(new window) page.

Below are the results from the second Proton VPN community survey:

As we continue our aggressive expansion, we will target the countries that received the most votes first. However, there is a good chance that as new VPN servers come online, they will not be in precisely the order of the countries listed. There are two main reasons for this:

First, our users’ security is always our top priority. If we are not confident we can keep your data secure, we will not take the risk. Security considerations are especially relevant when looking at installing VPN servers in China. However, we recently installed servers in Russia(new window), so we know how to install and maintain VPN servers in a high-risk country(new window). You can read more about some of the precautions we take(new window) to secure servers in high-risk countries.

Second, it can be more difficult and time-consuming in some countries to obtain servers than in others. We will focus on installing new servers in the countries that received the most votes first. However, occasionally VPN servers in a country that received fewer votes could be ready before servers in a country that received more votes because of the different implementation complications each country presents.

Thank you again for participating in this poll and helping to shape the future of Proton VPN. As we work to make online freedom and privacy accessible to all, your support and feedback are invaluable.
