How do I connect to a free VPN server?
Open our app on your device and tap the Quick Connect button to connect to the fastest free VPN server for your location. Alternatively, you can choose any server in the United States, Netherlands, or Japan that is marked Free.
Are ProtonVPN’s free servers less secure than your paid VPN servers?
When it comes to privacy and security, ProtonVPN treats all our users equally. Our strict no-logs policy fully applies to everyone using our Free plan. Users on our Free plan also use the same apps with the same strong encryption settings as users who have upgraded to one of our paid plans.
Can I stream content using your free VPN servers?
We do not block streaming content on our free servers, but we only guarantee that you will be able to unblock services such as Netflix (various local versions), Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer, Hulu Plus, Peacock, and more with a Plus plan.
