ProtonVPN has launched and ProtonVPN Beta is ending soon


We are excited to announce that ProtonVPN finally launched this morning and is now open to the general public. This is an important milestone in our mission to provide secure Internet to everyone in the world.

If you would like to know more about the story behind ProtonVPN, you can read our launch blog post here:

We were very excited to have all of you take part in the ProtonVPN beta and we have been very busy implementing your suggestions. We look forward to continuing to provide a high quality and secure VPN service for you after the beta.

Tonight, at midnight in Geneva, Switzerland, we will be transitioning the beta ProtonVPN to the production ProtonVPN.  ProtonVPN has three plans, ProtonVPN Plus (8€/month), ProtonVPN Basic (4€/month), and ProtonVPN Free (0€/month). All beta testers currently have ProtonVPN Plus. ProtonMail Visionary users will retain access to ProtonVPN Plus for free.

ProtonVPN Plans and Pricing

If you are a ProtonMail Plus user, and you would like to continue using the full version of ProtonVPN, you can go to Settings –> Dashboard to add either ProtonVPN Plus or ProtonVPN Basic to your ProtonMail plan. As a ProtonMail Plus user, you are eligible for an additional 20% bundle discount when combining Mail and VPN.

If you do nothing, you will be automatically transitioned to ProtonVPN Free. You can find full details about ProtonVPN plans and pricing here:

Note that ProtonVPN Basic and ProtonVPN Free have access to fewer servers, so after the transition tonight, some servers may stop working for you. If this happens and you are:

– On Windows connecting through the ProtonVPN application, your server list will automatically reflect this change after a periodic refresh.

– On Mac/Android/iOS, or if you are connecting with another OpenVPN client, you can get the latest OpenVPN config files by logging into the ProtonVPN user dashboard at:


If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us through our support site:

Keep in mind that if you are a ProtonMail Plus user, you will receive a 20% discount when signing up for a paid ProtonVPN plan (discount is shown at checkout). If you would like to support the project, please consider upgrading to a paid ProtonVPN plan so that we can continue to grow and improve ProtonVPN. Thank you again for your support!

Best Regards,
The ProtonMail team
