About this app

IMPORTANT: There is a new version of the ProtonVPN app available and this version is not supported anymore. Please install the new ProtonVPN app from here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ch.protonvpn.android

ProtonVPN is a community-supported VPN app brought to you by the same team that created ProtonMail, the world’s largest encrypted email service. Our mission is to make advanced online privacy and security available to everyone. 


Install our VPN app now for free and use it to keep your IP address private, protect your Internet connection on public Wi-Fi, and access geo-restricted content.
Free plan offers unlimited browsing via servers in 3 countries. Upgrade to access 30+ countries and advanced features.

We have several subscription plans, each coming with different features. But all of our plans include:

✔ NO LOGS. EVER
We will never log user activity or share user data with third parties. Even if authorities request information on our users’ online activity, we have nothing to share.

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

✔ BASED IN SWITZERLAND
As a Swiss company based in Geneva, we are subject to Swiss law, which has some of the strongest privacy protections in the world.

Free features
Unlike other VPN services, with ProtonVPN there’s no free plan trial period, and you can browse as much as you want. ProtonVPN is the ONLY free VPN that has no privacy-invading ads, no malware, no bandwidth limits, and does not secretly sell user data. Our free service is supported by paid plans, where users get more privacy features and access to faster, exclusive servers.

Advanced features
In addition to faster connections on our exclusive servers, our Plus and Visionary members get access to our Secure Core servers. We own and provision these servers ourselves and we have placed them in countries with strong privacy protections. When you use our Secure Core network, your Internet traffic is routed through multiple servers, including these special, hardened servers. This makes it even more difficult for intruders to link your online activity to your IP address, even during advanced network-based attacks. 



What is different about ProtonVPN?
Whether challenging governments, educating the public, or training journalists, we are well-known privacy advocates and contributors to the open source community. 



Join our mission
Your support is important as it allows us to continue our mission to make online freedom and the right to Internet privacy available to people around the globe.

Randomly decided to check my speeds when the notification was showing zero transfers up or down. Opened the app to be greeted with a disconnected message. Because it's too hard to have a push notification for when I get disconnected. Not the first time. I like to be constantly aware of my connection status and this app is not very helpful in achieving that status. As for a suggestion, I'd also like the ability to have an automatic IP change after so many mb/gb or a timer for every 30 minutes.

I think there might be a problem with this app and Android 10. It worked just fine on 9, but on 10 I'll pick up my phone to discover the VPN randomly disconnected. Sometimes it'll automatically reconnect, but most of the time I have to do it manually. And even then, sometimes it won't reconnect manually, just stay in a cycle of trying to reconnect. Edit: Always on was already enabled. I'm guessing this will happen again, and when it does, I'll be sure to use the Report Bug option within the app. When this gets resolved, I'll certainly update my rating. Edit2: Yes, I did use the Report A Bug option in the app, and I am currently in contact with the support team. I do still have the problem as of this second edit. Edit3: After working with support, it looks like my issue was resolved by clearing the cache and the data. Updating review accordingly. (Support staff were also very helpful and friendly.)

Good app, easy to use. Here are the bugs that need to be fixed. 1) The app doesn't handle network changes well. If you move from cell to WiFi or between WiFi networks the app says your connected but in reality it disconnects and doesn't allow internet traffic. It needs to reconnect automatically upon network change. 2) You need to be able to define trusted and untrusted networks. Mobile devices jump between networks often so the user should be able to define to the VPN untrusted networks on which the VPN automatically connects and trusted networks where it disconnects. It should default to staying connected if already connected but leaves the untrusted network and ONLY automatically disconnect on a trusted network. This is a feature most other apps have.
