How to use the Proton VPN Windows app

    For step-by-step installation instructions, read our Proton VPN for Windows guide.

    Security made easy

    Our Windows app offers advanced features carefully designed to improve your online security.

    Secure Core VPN

    Secure Core protects your connection by routing your traffic through multiple servers before it leaves our network, defending you against advanced, network-based attacks.

    Secure Core servers are located in hardened data centers in Switzerland, Iceland, and Sweden, protected by strong privacy laws, and operated on Proton's dedicated networks.

    Kill switch

    A VPN kill switch keeps your IP address safe if something goes wrong with your VPN connection. If your VPN connection fails, the kill switch will prevent your device from connecting to the internet until your device reconnects to a VPN server.

    NetShield Ad-blocker

    NetShield speeds up your connection and protects you from malware by filtering out images, scripts, and other resources that are from domains known to host malware. Available for VPN Plus and Unlimited users, NetShield can also block online trackers and ads.
