vpnA virtual private network (aka VPN) extends a private network across a public network. It enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network.

Unlike other VPN services, ProtonVPN is designed with security as the main focus, drawing upon the lessons we have learned from working with journalists and activists in the field.

Regular VPN services can be compromised if their servers are under surveillance. ProtonVPN prevents this by first passing user traffic through our Secure Core network in privacy-friendly countries like Switzerland and Iceland. Thus, even a compromised VPN endpoint server will not reveal your true IP address

ProtonVPN offers a free service which includes

  • 1 simultaneous VPN connection
  • Servers in 3 countries
  • Medium speed
  • No logs policy
  • No data limit
  • No ads
