    ProtonVPN Tor servers

    Our server network includes nodes that reroute your internet traffic through the Tor network. ProtonVPN has Tor servers in several countries. The servers that connect to the Tor network include “TOR” in their label.

    Access hidden services

    Connecting to one of our Tor servers enables you to access hidden services and onion sites. For example, you can connect to Proton’s onion site at https://protonmailrmez3lotccipshtkleegetolb73fuirgj7r4o4vfu7ozyd.onion(new window) for extra privacy.

    Tor for every device

    You can use your ProtonVPN app to connect to the Tor network on virtually any device without needing to download any other apps. Simply connect to one of our Tor servers with a single tap.

    A safe and private VPN for everyone

    Private sign-up

    The best way for us to protect your personal data is to hold as little of it as possible. We don’t ask you for any identifying information when you sign up to ProtonVPN — just an email address.

    Secure Core VPN

    Our VPN service has the unique ability to defend against network-based attacks by routing your traffic through multiple servers in our Secure Core network. This protects your traffic from being monitored at the exit server.

    Strong VPN protocols

    We only use OpenVPN, IKEv2, and WireGuard VPN protocols, which are known to be secure. (We do not use the less secure PPTP and L2TP protocols.) By using ProtonVPN, you can be sure that your VPN tunnel is protected by the most reliable protocols.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I connect to the Tor network using ProtonVPN?

    We have made connecting to Tor as simple as possible:

    • If you haven’t already, sign up for a ProtonVPN account (you need a Plus or Visionary plan to access Tor over VPN)
    • Download and install ProtonVPN for your device
    • Find a server with TOR in the name, such as US-CO#21-TOR or HK#5-TOR (marked with the onion symbol)
    • Click on the server to immediately connect — you are now routing your traffic through the Tor network!

    Can I use Tor via my regular browser?

    Once you’ve connected to one of our Tor servers, all your internet traffic will be routed through the Tor network automatically. However, if you want to access hidden services, such as Proton’s onion site, you may need to configure your browser to resolve onion domains. We have step-by-step guides for each browser on our support pages.

    How does Tor work?

    Tor stands for The Onion Router, so named because of the layers of privacy it affords. The Tor network helps to disguise your identity online by encrypting your traffic and routing it across different Tor servers so no one can track your activity.

    Can I use Tor over VPN on a ProtonVPN Free account?

    Tor over VPN is only available with a Plus or Visionary plan. For more information about which features you can access with a paid plan, check out our different VPN plans.
