Connecting the origins of the Internet and building the Internet of the future

We are developing strategies to assist everyone in protecting their online privacy.

Created by scientists, for the world

In 2014, a team of scientists who had crossed paths at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) established Proton Mail. Initially funded by the public, Proton Mail has since expanded its reach worldwide.

Build integrated products for more privacy

Proton Mail is our flagship product and the leading secure email service worldwide. Proton VPN is our second product and widely recognized as one of the most popular VPN services globally. With the introduction of Proton Calendar and Proton Drive, we are creating an all-in-one internet platform that empowers individuals to manage their data with ease. Our ultimate goal is to provide people with full control over their information.

Trustworthy where freedom is threatened

The Proton community is made up of a wide range of individuals, including prominent figures in the Hong Kong protest movement, journalists from the New York Times, major corporations from around the world, and millions of everyday people from over 180 countries. Our team is a vibrant and diverse group, consisting of over 400 individuals from more than 30 nationalities, with offices located in Geneva, Zurich, Prague, Vilnius, Skopje, and Taipei.
