Our mission at ProtonVPN is to make security and privacy available to all. That’s why ProtonVPN and ProtonMail will always support free plans that anyone can use. If you want to create a free VPN account, follow the simple steps below:
Create a free VPN account
1) In your web browser, go to https://protonvpn.com/free-vpn or click on the “Signup” button on the homepage.
2) The Free plan will be automatically selected.
3) Enter your email address (for recovery email and verification).
The recovery email is used in case you lose your password, so you can easily reset it and regain access to your account.
Enter the information and click on “Get ProtonVPN FREE”
4) Complete the human verification.
After proceeding from the previous step you will receive a verification code into your email that you entered before. If you did not receive the email, please check the spam inbox or wait a few minutes before clicking the resend button. Copy the code from the email and paste it into the website as displayed below.
6) Create the username and password.
Enter your desired username and password to be used with our services and click on “Complete”
After completing the registration, you will be able to download our applications right away, or go to your account dashboard as shown in the screenshot below:
For the first seven days, you will automatically receive a free trial of ProtonVPN Plus. During this period, you will have access to all the ProtonVPN servers and features. The ProtonVPN trial is activated upon the first successfully established connection. So if you create your account but wait a few days to start using ProtonVPN, you will not lose any of the seven trial days.
After your trial days expire, your account will be reverted back to the Free plan automatically. With the ProtonVPN Free plan, you will have access to five ProtonVPN servers in three countries: the Netherlands, Japan, and the US. Also, you’ll be unable to connect multiple devices simultaneously. If you were satisfied with the ProtonVPN Plus service and performance during your seven-day trial, then consider upgrading to one of our paid plans. You can compare the ProtonVPN plan-specifications on our pricing page.
