Top 5 reasons you need a VPN when traveling

A VPN is a versatile tool that protects your privacy no matter where you are and makes your traveling experience more enjoyable.

Protect your privacy while traveling and using public WiFi

The price for “free” public WiFi is often having your browsing history sold to advertisers. Proton VPN prevents any WiFi hotspot from being able to track your online activity — at the airport, the coffee shop, or your hotel. Keep your browsing history for your eyes only.

Watch your favorite content while traveling abroad

Use our Plus servers to stream your favorite shows from back home, wherever you are. Watch YouTube or cheer on your home team while listening to your favorite announcers, even if you’re in another country.

Stay connected with loved ones when away from home

In many parts of the world, messaging apps such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Skype, are blocked. With Proton VPN, you can bypass these blocks to stay in contact with your friends and family.

Share your experiences with the world

Social media sites are also censored in many countries. Use Proton VPN to unblock Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter, so that you can share photos, videos, and updates about your amazing travel experiences with the rest of the world.

Access the uncensored internet wherever you are

Many countries around the world block content on social, religious, or political grounds. Access the free and open internet with Proton VPN and stay informed about the things that matter to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a VPN protect my privacy while traveling?

A virtual private network (VPN) creates a secure encrypted connection between your device and our VPN servers. This prevents anyone from monitoring your internet traffic as it travels between your device and our servers. It also means that your ISP can’t see what you do on the internet, and websites you visit can’t see your real IP address.

How does a VPN protect me when using public WiFi?

Thanks to HTTPS, the biggest danger you risk when using public WiFi is not criminal hackers but the WiFi hosts themselves.

Many of these are commercial services that sell your browsing history to advertisers (this is why you often need to identify yourself and agree to a lengthy list of terms and conditions before using most WiFi hotspots).

With a VPN, these hotspots cannot see what websites you visit or apps you use. They can only see that you’ve connected to a VPN server.

How do I watch content from back home with Proton VPN?

You can connect to a Plus server in your home country to watch a wide range of supported streaming services, including Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, and HBO Max.

How do I bypass censorship with Proton VPN?

To bypass censorship restrictions, simply connect to a VPN server located somewhere that does not censor the internet. If you suspect the internet will be censored in the country you are visiting, be sure to download our Proton VPN app before you arrive.
