ProtonVPN: Free vs. Paid Plans

ProtonVPN offers the only free VPN that doesn’t artificially limit your bandwidth, spy on you, show you privacy-invading ads, or sell your data.

Our paid VPN plans offer premium features, even faster browsing speeds, access to streaming services, and more while still protecting your privacy.

Free, unlimited, no-logs VPN with ProtonVPN

Our easy-to-use free VPN was developed to help create an internet where privacy is the default by scientists who met at CERN

Private by design

We believe everyone has the right to privacy. ProtonVPN prevents your browsing from being monitored and recorded by your internet provider, and we will never keep logs of your online activity.

Unlimited bandwidth

Our free VPN plan offers unlimited bandwidth. Unlike other VPN providers, we don’t put data caps on our free plans or impose speed limits. You can use the free version of ProtonVPN forever.

Defeat censorship

With a ProtonVPN free plan, you can bypass government censorship and other restrictions on your browsing activity. Using our free VPN, users can easily access online content that is blocked in their country.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which plan lets me use streaming services with ProtonVPN?

Although we don’t actively block streaming sites on our free VPN, we can only guarantee streaming services on our Plus and Visionary plans.

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

Our strong privacy protections, including no-logs policy and encryption protocols, apply equally to all ProtonVPN users.

Are there any limits on how much I can use the ProtonVPN free plan?

We don’t impose any time, speed, or data limits on ProtonVPN Free plans. If you would like to use your ProtonVPN account on more than 1 device, you can upgrade to a Plus plan.

How can I use BitTorrent on ProtonVPN?

Only users with a paid plan can use ProtonVPN for sharing files via BitTorrent. Once you have a paid plan, just connect to one of our servers that is optimized for P2P file sharing (new window).
