Start using a VPN

Protect your data from prying eyes and unblock the internet.

Proton VPN has servers all over the world, letting you bypass censorship and “spoof” your geographic location.

  • Connect your device to a secure VPN server
  • Encrypt the connection between your device and the VPN server
  • Block your ISP from seeing your online activity

Why use a VPN?

All mass surveillance systems in the world rely on ISPs logging their users’ browsing histories and making these logs available to government agencies. A VPN prevents your ISP from seeing your information, so it prevents untargeted mass surveillance by your government.
