Hide your IP address and protect your privacy

Your IP address can be used to identify you and track your online activity. Use ProtonVPN to prevent your IP address from being exposed to advertisers, hackers, and government agencies.

  • Avoid targeted ads
  • Bypass government surveillance
  • Prevent DNS and IPv6 leaks
  • Secure your online privacy with ProtonVPN

    ProtonVPN was created by the same team of scientists who met at CERN that founded ProtonMail, the trusted encrypted email provider.

    Hide your IP address from advertisers

    Online trackers use your IP address to deliver personalized ads to you. By connecting to ProtonVPN, you can remain private and avoid having advertisers monitor your online activity.

    Hide your browsing activity from your ISP

    Your internet service provider knows your device’s IP address and can monitor your browsing activity. When you use a VPN, your ISP can only see the IP address of the VPN server you are connected to, letting you browse privately and securely.

    Strong encryption standards

    ProtonVPN uses strong encryption to protect against two common IP leak vectors: DNS and IPv6 leaks. Your IP address will never be visible on the internet when you are connected to our VPN servers.
