Why we offer a free VPN

Our free VPN service is supported by paying subscribers. If you would like to support our mission, please consider upgrading.

Our story begins at CERN, where the network was born and where our founding team met. In 2014, on the 25th anniversary of the network’s birth, we built Proton Mail to make online privacy possible again for millions of people around the world. The Proton VPN project was created to better protect the activists and journalists who use Proton Mail.

In the years since we began as a crowdfunded project, Proton Mail and Proton VPN have continued to grow primarily with the support and input of our community. We have a long track record Whether it's challenging governments, educating the public or training journalists, we're committed to being on the front lines.

We are scientists, engineers and developers, and we care deeply about the future of the Internet. We are also experts in security and Internet technologies, and we apply this expertise in the public interest. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

Proton VPN has one of the fastest and most extensive networks in the world, with servers on every continent, providing truly global connectivity.
