Proton Drive Beta FAQ

Proton Drive, now in beta, is our new end-to-end encrypted cloud storage service. To thank our users who enable us to pursue our mission of building an internet that puts users first, we are giving beta access to all Proton users with paid accounts. This includes users with:

  • Lifetime plans
  • Visionary plans
  • ProtonMail Professional plans
  • ProtonMail Plus plans
  • ProtonVPN Basic or Plus plans

If you are currently subscribed to one of these plans

You do not need to take any action; you can now use Proton Drive beta. 

If you are not currently subscribed to one of these plans

If you are not subscribed to any paid plans but still want to get beta access to Proton Drive, you can subscribe or upgrade to a ProtonMail paid plan. This will automatically give you access to the Proton Drive beta.
