Remember writing secrets in your diary as a child, and locking it to keep it safe from prying siblings? I certainly do, and you probably can relate too. That privacy was crucial, and guarded jealously back then. Now, as adults, we don’t keep secrets in diaries… and we don’t seem to be so concerned about privacy anymore. Or do we?

Imagine keeping a diary, but not locking it. Or worse, posting it on a billboard for everyone to see. Well, that’s how exposed your private information is when you surf the Internet: from the websites you visit or the files you download to the messages you send, everything is “readable” for anyone who might try to snoop on your online life. Unless, of course, you’re protected by a VPN.

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) creates an encrypted, secure connection over the Internet (which prevents intruders from accessing your information), and guarantees anonymity, among other benefits —like locking your diary, putting it inside an opaque bag, and hiding it—. Nowadays, many companies offer VPN services, but there is one that stands out from the crowd. Proton VPN is one of the best VPN services available, providing a wonderful free service and also four paid plans to access more advanced features.

Proton VPN is available for download on desktop devices (Windows, macOS and Linux) and mobile devices (iPhone, iPad and Android), from the App Store or the Play Store.

It's important to mention that Android and iOS apps are similar, both include all features. They're easy to navigate and rather intuitive to set up and use.

Main characteristics and features

Proton VPN offers you multiple features:

  • Unlimited online protection: VPN use is unlimited, unlike many competing VPN providers who limit bandwidth and data.
  • Safe internet with VPN: Proton VPN uses advanced security and encryption protocols. You can be sure that your data is always protected.
  • High-speed VPN servers all around the world: Proton VPN has 2,700 servers across 90 countries. There’s always a fast and reliable connection for you, wherever you are!
  • Privacy in public WI-FI: connecting from public networks, you’re susceptible to cyberattacks. It won’t be the case if you use Proton VPN, because it encrypts your connection and protects your data.
  • Protection against malicious websites and ads: this feature spots and blocks malware, trackers and ads, preventing attacks and infections.
  • IP address and location masking: Proton VPN hides your IP address and location. This protects your identity, and helps you bypass geographical restrictions. Among these features’ multiple benefits is the possibility of streaming your favorite content anywhere you are.


Proton Free is the basic plan, completely ad-free as it's supported with paid plans. Its features include one email address, access to Proton VPN and Proton Drive with up to 6 GB of storage and more.

Upgrading your account and subscribing to Proton VPN Plus gives access to exclusive servers, worldwide streaming, advanced security features, and faster speeds.

Proton Unlimited is another plan available, which includes all premium services: Proton VPN, Mail, Calendar, Drive and Pass.

Proton offers monthly and annual plans, with a 30-day money-back guarantee in case you're not convinced. With Proton’s annual and two-year plans, the pricing is better as it grants important savings.
