Proton VPN - Privacy policy

Last modified: August 22nd, 2023

This sub-policy is an integral part of the Proton Privacy Policy(new window). It details the data processing activities specifically related to the creation and activity of your Proton Account when you use Proton VPN.

Account activity: Proton VPN is a no-logs VPN service. When you use the Service, we do NOT do any of the following:

  • Log users' traffic or the content of any communications
  • Discriminate against devices, protocols, or applications
  • Throttle your Internet connection

Our free VPN service is also covered by our no-logs policy, and has in general no speed restrictions. We do reserve the right to impose speed restrictions in cases of excessive consumption in order to ensure service quality for all users on free servers.

You can find details about our no-logs VPN policy here.

All Proton VPN servers are encrypted and we do not log VPN session data.

Transparency report: Information about law enforcement data requests can be found in the Proton VPN Transparency Report and Warrant Canary.

Data security: All information required to maintain your account are managed by servers that are wholly owned and operated by Proton or our subsidiaries. This data is always stored in encrypted format on our servers, which are exclusively located in Switzerland or Germany, under the protection of some of the world's strongest privacy laws. Furthermore, Proton physically owns and operates all Secure Core servers, and a majority of our VPN servers in Switzerland and Germany (Proton owned servers can be identified by IP addresses which identify Proton AG as the internet service provider). All Proton VPN servers, irrespective of location, utilize full-disk encryption, and in the highly unlikely event that the full-disk encryption is compromised, Proton VPN servers also contain no logs and no user data.
