Free VPN to protect your privacy. We believe online privacy is a fundamental human right. Providing free access is part of our mission. The Proton VPN free plan is unlimited and designed for security. No catches, no gimmicks. Just online privacy and freedom for those who need it.

Our mission is to provide private and secure Internet access to all. ProtonVPN is used by activists and journalists all around the world. Our free plan is the only one that:

  • Has no data or speed limits
  • Has no advertisements
  • Does not log your online activity
  • Is protected by Swiss privacy laws

Security

Our secure VPN sends your internet traffic through an encrypted VPN tunnel, so your passwords and confidential data stay safe, even over public or untrusted Internet connections.

Secure Core VPN

Secure Core protects your connection by routing your traffic through multiple servers before it leaves our network, defending you against advanced, network-based attacks. Secure Core servers are located in hardened data centers in Switzerland, Iceland, and Sweden, protected by strong privacy laws, and operated on Proton's dedicated networks.

Kill switch

A VPN kill switch keeps your IP address safe if something goes wrong with your VPN connection. If your VPN connection fails, the kill switch will prevent your device from connecting to the internet until your device reconnects to a VPN server.

Adblocker (NetShield)

NetShield speeds up your connection and protects you from malware by filtering out images, scripts, and other resources that are from domains known to host malware. Available for VPN Plus and Proton Unlimited users, NetShield can also block online trackers and ads.

Apps

Regardless if you use a PC, tablet, phone, or anything in between, Proton VPN has you covered with Free VPN apps for all of the major operating systems.

Servers

Proton VPN offers free access to VPN servers in the United States, Netherlands, and Japan. The Proton VPN free plan has a strict no-logs policy backed by the Swiss data privacy laws. Additionally, Proton VPN does not apply any bandwidth, duration, or speed limits to free users.

Privacy

Keep your browsing history private. As a Swiss VPN provider, we do not log user activity or share data with third parties. Our anonymous VPN service enables Internet without surveillance.

Freedom

We created ProtonVPN to protect the journalists and activists who use ProtonMail. ProtonVPN breaks down the barriers of Internet censorship, allowing you to access any website or content.

Perfect forward secrecy

ProtonVPN exclusively uses ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy, meaning that your encrypted traffic cannot be captured and decrypted later, even if an encryption key gets compromised in the future.

No-log policy

ProtonVPN is a no logs VPN service. We do not track or record your internet activity, and therefore, we are unable to disclose this information to third parties.

Tor over VPN

ProtonVPN also integrates with the Tor anonymity network. With a single click, you can route all your traffic through the Tor network and access Onion sites.
