You’re all set. That was easy, huh?

You can now securely and privately browse the internet. The data traveling between your device and the VPN server is encrypted, meaning:

  • Your internet service provider cannot monitor your activity
  • Websites see the IP address of the VPN server you are using

You can confirm your VPN server's IP address here.

For step-by-step installation instructions, read our ProtonVPN 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.

Adblocker (NetShield)

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 Plus and Visionary users, NetShield can also block online trackers and ads.
