Frequently Asked Questions

Will ProtonVPN work on my PC?

ProtonVPN has apps for all popular desktop operating systems. If you are not sure which operating system your machine is running, most PCs use Windows. We also have apps for macOS, Linux, and Chromebook.

Are there any limits on your Free plan?

Users with our Free plan have no bandwidth restrictions. There are also no speed restrictions, but our free servers can get busy at times, which may affect speed performance. Free users can connect to servers in the United States, Netherlands, and Japan.

Our Free plan will remain free forever, but upgrading to a paid plan gives you access to a number of premium features:

  • Connect up to 10 devices at once
  • Servers in over 50 countries
  • Unblock many popular streaming services
  • Adblocker (NetShield) DNS filtering, which can also block malware and website trackers
  • Secure Core VPN
  • Tor over VPN

Does using your Free plan compromise my privacy?

No. ProtonVPN’s strict no-logs policy applies equally to all our users, and our apps use the same encryption settings for all plans.

However, if you upgrade to a paid plan, we offer Adblocker (NetShield), a DNS filtering feature that also blocks malware and prevents website tracking.
