    Frequently Asked Questions

    Should I use a VPN if I live in the UK?

    The Investigatory Powers Act (also known as the Snoopers’ Charter) gave the UK government the power to demand information about your browsing activity from your ISP. Using a VPN is the best way to combat this governmental overreach, though you should ensure any VPN you use is not based in the UK and also has a strict no-logs policy. Proton VPN is based in Switzerland, meaning we are protected by strong Swiss privacy laws. We also don’t keep any logs on your browsing activity.

    Is there a free VPN for the UK?

    Yes, there are many free VPNs that can be downloaded to use in the UK. However, you should only use trustworthy VPN services to ensure your browsing activity remains secure and private. Proton VPN is developed by the same team of scientists that created Proton Mail, the world’s largest encrypted email service. It is the only VPN that offers a free VPN plan that has no ads, no logs, no bandwidth limits, and no data limits. You can use Proton VPN in the UK for free for as long as you want.

    Can I change my IP location to the UK?

    With Proton VPN, you can change your IP address to make it look as though you are accessing the internet from the UK or any other country where we have servers.
