Experts' opinion:

Mozilla: "There are many VPN vendors out there, but not all of them are created equal. Proton VPN offers a secure, reliable, and easy-to-use VPN service and is operated by the makers of ProtonMail, a respected, privacy-oriented email service... As a company they have a track record of fighting for online privacy and they share our dedication to internet safety and security."

PCMag: "[Proton VPN's] focus on exacting security at an affordable price tag makes it a compelling choice. Plus, its free version is the best we've tested so far."

Notice for users in China and UAE - Proton VPN may be blocked due to government restrictions outside our control.
