ProtonVPN’s mission is to make advanced online privacy and security available to everyone. With ProtonVPN, you can:
- Protect your privacy by hiding your IP address
- Browse the web securely (even on public WiFi)
- Visit blocked/censored websites
ProtonVPN is a community-supported VPN developed by the same team of scientists that created ProtonMail, the world’s largest encrypted email service. ProtonVPN has a free plan so anybody can use it. You can upgrade to a paid plan to unlock all features.
- NO LOGS. EVER
ProtonVPN is a no logs VPN service. We do not track or record your Internet activity, and therefore, cannot disclose this information to third parties.
- STRONG ENCRYPTION
Our VPN app for iOS uses the IKEv2 protocol. We use only the highest-strength encryption to protect your Internet connection. This means all your network traffic is encrypted with AES-256 and uses 2048-bit RSA key exchange.
- PERFECT FORWARD SECRECY
ProtonVPN uses ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy, meaning your encrypted traffic cannot be captured and decrypted later, even if an encryption key gets compromised in the future.
- SWISS BASED
ProtonVPN is a Swiss company, which means you are protected by some of the strongest privacy regulations in the world.
Unlike other VPN services, we provide full transparency so you know who is running the service. Whether it is challenging governments, educating the public, or training journalists, we are well known for fighting for privacy online and contributing to the open source community.
ProtonVPN is the ONLY free VPN service that has no privacy invading ads, no malware, no bandwidth limits, and does not secretly sell user data. The free service is supported by optional paid plans that come with more servers and more features.
Paid ProtonVPN plans come with additional features, such as:
- HIGH SPEED GLOBAL NETWORK
ProtonVPN has hundreds of servers located all around the world, accessible via a single click. All servers are on high speed 1 Gbit or 10 Gbit connections. Free users can only access slower servers in 3 countries.
- SECURE CORE VPN
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. Secure Core is available for ProtonVPN Plus & ProtonVPN Visionary users.
- TOR VPN
ProtonVPN Plus & ProtonVPN Visionary include Tor support. With a single click, you can route all your traffic through the Tor network and access Onion sites.

Ratings and Reviews
The best free VPN for PC is now the best free VPN for Mobile.
I used Proton VPN for PC since last year, and haven’t been disappointed. The free features are reliable and meet most people’s basic needs, making upgrading truly feel optional; Optional, but far from redundant as the best servers and several advanced features such as peer-to-peer are locked behind a paid account, for users that feel they would like them or just want to support the developers with their patronage. The moment the mobile app dropped I downloaded it, and have not been disappointed as it provides the same quality, reliability, and stability I loved on PC. If you get this app, you will not be disappointed whether you decide to pay money or not.
Works partially, not responding or slow
I’ve been waiting for iOS version, but unfortunately this app doesn’t work as expected. Safari says: not responding / timed out, and this happens with every website except for google, facebook and yandex websites. It just spinning and then gives me error. It feels like this app is blocking web traffic, so I have to switch back to OpenVPN app each time, which is annoying. And most funny it doesn’t work with their own protonmail app (same “timed out” error), and yet OpenVPN app works great. Grr!!! —— To sum it up. It shows the VPN icon but does not connecting me. I’m so disappointed.
Update: I contacted support and they told me to Disable NAT traversal under my router.
Developer Response ,
Hello! We are sorry to hear you are experiencing some issues. Could you please try turning the Kill Switch feature on to see if that solves the issue? If not, please contact our support team via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by creating a ticket in the following link: https://protonvpn.com/support-form. They will further investigate and assist with your issues.
So great! Keep it up, proton team! Side note- it’s pretty funny when I’ve forgotten to turn off location services and open maps or something and it assumes I’m in Atlanta or California or some other random place. Wouldn’t connect to WiFi on my phone without this thing. Congrats on being out of beta. Glad to have been along for the ride. Thanks for being an example to help us keep the faith that there are legit developers and servicers who genuinely believe in the vision of a private and free internet
