Have a look at our tutorials and learn how to use ProtonVPN with alternative clients.
Unlike other VPN services, ProtonVPN is designed with security as the main focus, drawing upon the lessons we have learned from working with journalists and activists in the field.
Regular VPN services can be compromised if their servers are under surveillance or compromised. ProtonVPN prevents this by first passing user traffic through our Secure Core network in privacy-friendly countries like Switzerland and Iceland. Thus, even a compromised VPN endpoint server will not reveal your true IP address.
ProtonVPN also adds legal protection for your privacy. We are headquartered in Switzerland which has some of the world's strongest privacy laws. Switzerland is also outside of EU and US jurisdiction and is not a member of the fourteen eyes surveillance network.
ProtonVPN is a no logs VPN service. We do not track or record your internet activity, and therefore, we are unable to disclose this information to third parties.
We only use strong encryption algorithms (AES-256) and protocols (OpenVPN). ProtonVPN exclusively uses ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy, meaning that your encrypted traffic cannot be captured and decrypted later, even if the key gets compromised.
The free ProtonVPN plan is the only free VPN that does not run privacy-invading ads, throttle your bandwidth, or sell your data to third parties.
