What you get from a trustworthy VPN
At Proton VPN, we have nothing to hide. From our apps’ code to our leadership team, we are open and transparent, making it easier for you to assess our security and giving you peace of mind that your personal data will stay private.
Used by journalists and activists
We built Proton VPN for people whose lives depend on the security of our encryption tools, which is why journalists, activists, and millions of people around the world use it to secure their access to the internet. Proton is supported by the European Commission and recommended by the United Nations.
People before profits
We will never abuse your data. Proton VPN runs on a community-powered business model, so we rely on paid subscriptions to support our service. This ensures that our interests are always aligned with that of our community.
Protect your privacy with Proton VPN
DNS leak prevention
Proton VPN guards against accidental DNS leaks. We do not rely on third-party servers, and your queries are all resolved on our own DNS servers. This prevents anyone, including your internet provider, from being able to monitor your browsing history using your DNS queries.
Strong VPN protocols
Proton VPN employs high-strength VPN protocols with no known vulnerabilities to protect your data, such as OpenVPN, IKEv2, and WireGuard. With Proton VPN, you can expect fast, secure, and censorship-resistant VPN connections.
Our NetShield Ad-blocker uses DNS filtering to block malware, ads, and online trackers before your device can even load them. This keeps your device clean and improves your browsing experience.
