    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I know Proton VPN can be trusted?

    Proton VPN was founded by scientists who met at CERN and believe in transparency and peer review, meaning all our apps are open source and have been audited by security professionals. This same group of scientists also created Proton Mail, the world’s largest encrypted email service.

    Proton is supported by the European Commission, recommended by the United Nations, used by journalists around the world, and relied on by activists in Belarus, Hong Kong, and Myanmar.

    In order to actively support free speech globally, we have donated over $500,000 to organizations furthering online freedom and privacy, provided field training for journalists in Asia and Europe, and worked with Reporters Without Borders to fund the Berlin Scholarship Program for journalists.
