Excellent security, to the point where your other security apps are asking if you're even connected to the internet. Can cause a lot of issues with apps that aren't directly named, but frequent updates tend to take care of those issues and the team behind the app seems to be always available. When choosing to connect to a VPN location far from you (Europe from the US, India from Europe, etc) keep in mind that, for whatever reason, the connection can slow down quite a bit but not for long terms

Connection speeds can be influenced by many factors such as your native ISP speed, location, server load, network setup, etc. You could try some of the tips at https://protonvpn.com/support/increase-vpn-speeds to improve your connection speeds. If you keep facing issues, contact us using the 'Report an issue' option in the app menu so we can help.

This is unbelievable that for almost two years, I've been using Proton without even spending a single penny. The ability to choose a server in a specific country in the free plan is now removed in return we get 2 more free countries. It seems as though the grandfather clause on ”old free" plan accounts are now starting to expire... I understand that several factors led up to this point, but it looks like I might resort to using the WireGuard client now using config files. (At least for a while)

With the Free plan changes, we aim to provide optimal speeds and latency to everyone using our free, unlimited, ad-free VPN. That said, although you can't select a specific server as a free user, you can always change the server that was initially assigned to you. To access region-specific content, check out our paid plans at protonvpn.com/pricing.

I love the vpn. However, despite being advertised everywhere I can't find anywhere to actually subscribe to it. It says to do it from the play store except that isn't possible. Also for some reason the United States servers are all fake vpns. The other servers properly work though. Update: Ok so it seems to be a play store issue. It won't let me subscribe because the subscription on the proton pass doesn't expire till August. And it won't let me completely end the subscription early.

Sorry to hear that. Note that you can also upgrade your account directly at protonvpn.com. We have a guide for this at protonvpn.com/support/payment-options. However, if you wish to upgrade via the in-app purchase, contact us at protonvpn.com/support-form so we can help. Lastly, let us know what issue you're having with the US servers exactly.
