What Linux distros does ProtonVPN support?
You can officially use our app on the following distros:
- Debian 10
- Ubuntu 18.04 (LTS) (CLI only, not GUI)
- Ubuntu 20.04 (LTS)
- Linux Mint 19+
- MX Linux 19
- Fedora 31+
- Arch / Manjaro 19
We are working to increase support for more distros. ProtonVPN should work on most Debian/Ubuntu-based distros, but this cannot be guaranteed.
Which servers can I connect to for free?
If you have a Free plan, you can connect to servers in the United States, Netherlands, and Japan. If you upgrade to a paid plan, you can connect to servers in over 50 countries.
What is the difference between Kill Switch and Permanent Kill Switch?
Kill Switch blocks your internet connection if the VPN accidentally disconnects from our servers for any reason. Permanent Kill Switch blocks all internet access unless the VPN is connected.
Is there a command-line version tool?
Yes. Just run protonvpn-cli in Terminal for the list of commands that our Linux CLI tool accepts.
