    Frequently Asked Questions

    Are there any limits on how much I can use Proton VPN for free?

    No. We impose no data or time limits on users subscribed to our Free plan.

    Will Proton VPN Free slow down my internet?

    Using any VPN will slow down your internet speeds a little, but we impose no artificial speed restrictions on users with a Free plan. If you choose our Free plan, you will have access to VPN servers in the United States, Netherlands, and Japan. These servers often have more users than our other servers, which can impact speed performance. However, free users often report higher speeds than are available with other VPN services.

    Can I stream Netflix using a free account?

    Proton VPN does not block Netflix or any other streaming service for users on our Free plan. However, we only guarantee access to a range of streaming services to users with our Plus plan.

    Does using the Free plan compromise my privacy in any way?

    No. Our strict no-logs policy, which is backed by strong Swiss privacy laws, applies equally to all Proton VPN users. We also use the same strong encryption protocols for all our users.

    Will I need to upgrade my Free plan?

    No. You can use the Free plan indefinitely, and many Proton VPN users find our Free plan, with no logs, no data limits, and no artificial speed restrictions, provides them with everything they need from a VPN service. If you wish to support Proton VPN and access a range of advanced features, you can upgrade to one of our paid plans.
