More about Proton VPN

Virtual private network software developed by Proton Technologies. Supported by all major operating systems, it utilizes OpenVPN and IKEv2 protocols to encrypt your connection with AES-256 bit encryption. All servers are owned by Proton Technologies.

Proton VPN offers a free, secure, and unlimited use plan, this plan only has 3 locations that the user can choose to connect to. The software is easy to use and offers no bandwidth reduction, fast speeds, secure connection, and a privacy policy that you can actually believe.

When you activate your VPN connection, it creates an encrypted tunnel between the server and your device which strengthens your ability to browse the web in a secure and untracked way. Your data traffic is then sent through the tunnel, thus hiding it from anyone on the same network as well as your internet service provider. VPN’s are also used to spoof your location if you’re unable to access country-restricted services like Hulu, Netflix, or Spotify.
