Proton VPN was created by Proton, the same company that built Proton Mail, the world’s largest encrypted email service. As a company founded by scientists, we believe that trust must be verified by data. This is why we have made all our apps open source and are open about who we are(new window).
Proton’s vision is to create an internet where privacy is the default, and we are supported by the European Commission and recommended by the United Nations. We support the global movement for online freedom and privacy and have donated over $500,000 to organizations whose work aligns with our mission.
