What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Customer support: We wish ProtonVPN had more ways to contact support than just email support tickets.
  • Price: If you're looking for a budget VPN, ProtonVPN is not it. ProtonVPN’s pricing, which starts at less than $4 per month, is a little higher compared to the competition.

Bottom Line

Whether we were watching Netflix or torrenting movies, we knew that ProtonVPN encrypted all our web traffic. It even replaced our IP address, making us much less susceptible to hacking when using public Wi-Fi networks.
