3. ProtonVPN – Unlimited Free VPN made by ProtonMail
ProtonVPN is a free VPN service that does the following:
- protects your privacy by hiding your IP address
- lets you browse the web securely (even on public WiFi)
- lets you visit blocked/censored websites
ProtonVPN is developed by the same team of scientists who met at CERN and created ProtonMail, the world’s largest encrypted email service. We created ProtonVPN to give journalists, activists, and everyday citizens unrestricted and secure access to the Internet.
ProtonVPN is the ONLY free VPN service that has no privacy invading ads, no malware, no bandwidth limits, and does not secretly sell user data. The free service is funded by optional paid plans that come with more servers and more features.
Keep your browsing history private. As a Swiss VPN provider, we do not log user activity or share data with third parties. Our proxy servers enable anonymous browsing, protected by Swiss privacy laws.
INTERNET WITHOUT RESTRICTIONS
ProtonVPN unblocks websites and unlocks content. Visit any site, stream any content, and download using any peer-to-peer (P2P) service. Use the Internet without censorship.
Our secure VPN sends your internet traffic through an encrypted VPN tunnel (using the IKEv2 protocol), so your passwords and confidential data stay safe, even over public WiFi or compromised networks.
Unlike other VPN services, we provide full transparency so you know who is running the service. Whether it is challenging governments, educating the public, or training journalists, we are well known for fighting for privacy online and contributing to the open source community.
FAST GLOBAL NETWORK
ProtonVPN has hundreds of servers located all around the world, accessible via a single click. All servers are on high speed 1 Gbit or 10 Gbit connections.
SECURE CORE VPN
Regular VPN services can be compromised if their servers are under surveillance. ProtonVPN prevents this by first passing user traffic through our Secure Core network in privacy friendly countries like Switzerland and Iceland. Thus, even a compromised VPN endpoint server will not reveal your true IP address.
PERFECT FORWARD SECRECY
For security, ProtonVPN uses ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy, meaning that your encrypted traffic cannot be captured and decrypted later, even if an encryption key gets compromised in the future.
ProtonVPN is a no logs VPN service. We do not track or record your internet activity, and therefore, cannot disclose this information to third parties.
ProtonVPN integrates with Tor. With a single click, you can route all your traffic through the Tor network and access Onion sites.
