Swiss legal protection, no matter where you are

Proton VPN is based in Switzerland, giving you the protection of some of the world’s strongest privacy laws.

  • Keep your browsing private with our no-logs policy
  • Protect your online activity with strict Swiss privacy laws
  • Use a VPN in a country with a long history of respecting privacy

A Swiss-based VPN service

When you connect to Proton VPN, you enjoy the same legal protections that ensure the privacy of all Swiss citizens. Proton VPN is built by the same group of scientists who met at CERN and founded Proton Mail, the largest encrypted email provider. We are based in Switzerland, allowing us to pass the benefits of Swiss data protection on to you.

No-logs VPN

The laws in Switzerland allow us to implement a strict no-logs policy, which means we do not monitor your IP address, your session lengths, your browsing history, or any other information that could identify you. Our no-logs policy has been verified by independent experts.

Strong legal protections

Under Swiss data protection regulations, we are not required to comply with requests that are not supported by a Swiss court order.

Swiss neutrality

Switzerland is well-known for its political neutrality. It is not part of the 5 Eyes, 9 Eyes, or 14 Eyes intelligence-sharing networks and is outside US and EU jurisdictions.

A VPN that reliably protects your privacy

NetShield Ad-blocker

Proton VPN’s NetShield Ad-blocker uses DNS filtering to block ads, trackers, and malware even before they load. This keeps your device safe and can speed up your browsing.

Strong encryption

Proton VPN safeguards your data by only using secure encryption ciphers without any known vulnerabilities. We also only use VPN protocols that are known to be secure, such as OpenVPN, IKEv2, and WireGuard.

Secure Core VPN

Our Secure Core VPN feature enables you to route your online traffic through VPN servers located in privacy-focused countries: Switzerland, Iceland, and Sweden. This makes it hard to track down your real IP address.
