"The priority for the company is the user's privacy and security online"

What do you like best?

The priority for the company is the user's privacy and security online so that the company is located in Switzerland - the country with the strictest privacy law on the world. The company doesn't gather and store user's activity and DNS logs because of their no-logs policy. ProtonVPN ensures powerful protocols with AES-256 encryption and other sophisticated features such as Secure Core, Kill Switch or Anti-DNS leakage. Besides, users could pay for the service with a few cryptocurrencies. Moreover, users are provided with a wide range of server locations. ProtonVPN supports the most popular operating systems and even routers and enables you to connect up to 5 devices simultaneously.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, ProtonVPN doesn't ensure a high-speed connection, and many servers are saturated, so it impacts negatively on the speed of the connection. Moreover, Live Customer Support isn't available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you value privacy and security online and you don't need high-speed connections, the software might meet your needs. Moreover, the company enables new customers to try the premium package for seven days.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ProtonVPN protects me against cybercriminals and provides an extra security layer sending business emails and logging to bank accounts.

ProtonVPN has a no-log policy so that they don't collect and store users' browsing history. Connection speed and bandwidth are a crucial issue, choosing a VPN, so users are provided with a high-speed connection and unlimited bandwidth.

What do you dislike?

In terms of technical issues, the software is exceptional, but customer support has a negative impact on a company's image. Users aren't provided with Live Chat, so if you want to report a software bug, you need to contact them via the particular form on their website. Moreover, you are forced to wait a long time for a response.

"ProtonVPN - The most secure vpn in the market "

What do you like best?

If you care about privacy you should, choose ProtonVPN is one of the safest vpn on the market through locations in Switzerland, which does not belong to the 5 eyes zone, and even 14 eyes zone is also worth mentioning the policy of non-registration of logs. Another plus is the proprietary securecore solution, which protects our traffic when connecting to servers in Europe. ProtonVPN works on all major platforms and mobile devices, so we can also protect our phones.

What do you dislike?

Less problems connecting to servers and limited trial plan. In cheaper packages we do not have access to securecore which is very useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you care about privacy, you should consider buying a more expensive package, because we have access to securecore and to a larger server location.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By using protonvpn I can bypass the regional blockade and I am protected against mitm attacks and IP leakage.

"Protege tu privacidad"

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de este VPN es que ofrece tráfico ilimitado en todos sus planes de precios, incluso en el gratuito. Hasta donde yo sé creo que es la única empresa que lo hace, y me ha llamado mucho la atención, ya que pone al alcance de todo el mundo el poder navegar de forma anónima por internet.

Obviamente la velocidad de navegación en el plan free es un poco baja, aunque aceptable, y si quieres navegar más rápido, o poder elegir entre una mayor variedad de países, ofrecen planes desde los 4 a los 24 euros mensuales.

Por el nombre ya podéis intuir que es la misma empresa que proporciona el email seguro, que encripta los mensajes, Protonmail. Hace algo más de un año decidieron sacar este producto, ProtonVPN, para hacer que la navegación por internet también sea completamente segura, protegiendo la privacidad del cliente en todo momento.

Como todos los VPN (Virtual Private Network), tú te conectas a un servidor de alguno de los países que ofrece esta empresa (3 en la versión gratuita, todos los países en las versiones de pago), y a través de ese servidor navegas por los contenidos que quieras, pero sin dejar rastro.

La reputación de Proton como expertos en seguridad en la red, y el hecho de regirse por la legislación suiza, son toda una garantía para los usuarios.

Con solo un par de clics, para encender la aplicación y seleccionar el país, puedes navegar tranquilo gracias a esta prestigiosa empresa.

What do you dislike?

La verdad es que no se puede decir nada negativo de este servicio, aunque si aumentasen un poco la velocidad en el plan free sería de agradecer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ProtonVPN ha hecho un esfuerzo para hacer accesible a todo el mundo este servicio, así que lo menos que podemos hacer los usuarios es probarlo. Yo lo he probado, y me he quedado con este VPN, para no tener qie preocuparme por cuánto navego, ya que ofrece tráfico ilimitado.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

La inmensa mayoría de las empresas tienen presencia en internet, por lo que disfrutar de un servicio que garantiza la privacidad y la integridad de las comunicaciones en la red resulta muy ventajoso. Obviamente en el caso de las empresas lo más adecuado es optar por una suscripción de pago, ya que la diferencia de velocidad se nota, y en el ámbito empresarial no conviene perder el tiempo, ya que el tiempo es dinero.

"Privacidad al alcance de todos"

What do you like best?

Los creadores de Protonmail han decidido ir un paso mas allá y crear ProtonVPN. Gracias a ellos ya teníamos un correo electrónico extraordinariamente seguro, y ahora han pensado con buen criterio que querían extender esa seguridad a toda nuestra actividad online, ya que en internet hacemos muchas más cosas que mandar emails.

Como en el caso de su servicio de correo, en este VPN también ofrecen un plan gratuito (para que nadie tenga que renunciar a la seguridad, por falta de recursos económicos), además de planes de pago más completos.

Al contrario de lo que hacen otros servicios similares, ProtonVPN no limita el tráfico mensual en ninguno de sus planes, si bien en el plan gratuito la velocidad es un poco lenta. Si dispones de dinero para contratar algún otro plan, dispondrás de mayor velocidad, mayor número de países disponibles y posibilidad de usarlo en múltiples dispositivos.

El anonimato durante la navegación está garantizado, ya que ProtonVPN enruta el tráfico a través de múltiples túneles cifrados, en diferentes países; también se integra con la red Tor para garantizar el anonimato.

Solo tienes que descargar la aplicación y comenzar a disfrutarlo.

What do you dislike?

Me parece una gran iniciativa, especialmente por garantizar el acceso a todo el mundo a su servicio, y no voy a decir nada negativo (porque tampoco encuentro nada malo).

Recommendations to others considering the product

El hecho de no limitar el tráfico mensual, ni siquiera en su versión free, lo convierte en uno de los VPN más interesantes del momento.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En los planes superiores, ofrece un nivel de seguridad total en las comunicaciones de la empresa por internet, sin perder velocidad. Igual que las empresas invierten (y hacen bien por supuesto) en antivirus y otros elementos de seguridad, también deberían invertir en asegurar sus comunicaciones a través de la red.

"VPN de precisión suiza"

What do you like best?

Proton VPN es un servicio de Red Privada Virtual que te permite navegar de forma anónima por internet, ofrecido por la misma empresa radicada en suiza que ofrece el servicio de email encriptado Protonmail.

Puedes suscribirte a este servicio de VPN a través de varios planes de precios, que van desde la versión gratuita (que puedes usar en un solo dispositivo y ofrece baja velocidad y servidores en solo 3 países) a las versiones de pago de 4, 8 y 24 euros mensuales, que permiten navegar a más velocidad y elegir servidores en cualquier país.

Con este sistema te conectas a un servidor situado en otro país, y desde ahí navegas por el contenido que quieres ver, de forma que nadie sabe quien eres, porque la IP que presentas es la del servidor al que estás conectado. Está conexión además está cifrada para que nadie pueda rastreartu actividad.

What do you dislike?

La velocidad en el plan gratuito, que es el que la gente suele usar para probar, es demasiado baja. Es normal que sea menor que en los planes Premium, pero no tanto.

Recommendations to others considering the product

En las versiones premium ofrece servidores en todos los países, de forma que podrás acceder a cualquier contenido georestringido.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con una conexión cifrada se garantiza la privacidad de las comunicaciones.

Another drawback is that it is not for the final version of the program, so there may be some complications.

"ProtonVPN - The best VPN"

What do you like best?

I opted for ProtonVPN and I think it was a good choice, because it gives me great satisfaction with safety thanks to the great privacy and encryption policy AES-256 and the choice of one of 29 countries where the servers are located, more than I am sure that the servers are safe and my personal data will remain only for me. It is also worth supporting the safe use of the WI-FI network in public places and the strong protocols offered by the protocol, which is available on many platforms. I have been using it for a long time and I can see how well ProtonVPN is developing.

What do you dislike?

In ProtonVPN I do not like the price variants of the service. In the basic version we can only connect to 2 countries, and we only have the option to use vpn on 1 device.

"Une bonne surprise malgré quelques soucis technique."

What do you like best?

Je suis globalement satisfait de ProtonVPN dans un usage quotidien avec mon travail.

Il est pertinent dans la plupart des choses que je lui demande, malgré parfois des déconnexions sans explications, ce qui peut être gênant parfois.

L'installation est très simple, il n'y a rien à redire sur ce point précis.

What do you dislike?

Au niveau des tarifs, je trouve le service un peu plus cher que ces concurrents, avec des bugs intempestifs qui du coup sont assez dommageables au vu du service que l'on paye.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Malgré des soucis techniques qui peuvent apparaitre de temps à autre (c'est peut etre notre réseau qui est défaillant), ProtonVPN fait le job au vu de ce qu'on lui demande.

Une période d'essai vous permettrait de vous convaincre pour le long terme.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dans l'entreprise, le vpn a était pris pour remplacer un autre concurrent qui nous facturait leurs services bien trop cher au vu des prestations.

Il nous a était conseillé et globalement il nous a permis d'être plus efficace dans la réalisations de certaines tâches qui demandent des connexions à l'étranger ou sur des serveurs privés.

"ProtonVPN - The safest vpn service?"

What do you like best?

The main advantage of ProtonVPN is security based on it in Switzerland, so it is cut off from the 5-eye zone if you want to connect to a server in a high-risk jurisdiction, the traffic passes first through securecore and then before the target server means that ProtonVPN does not save any logs. ProtonVPN is available for android and for ios an openvpn application is required.

What do you dislike?

One of the disadvantages of ProtonVPN is the price of the most expensive package, which allows you to connect with 10 devices at once costs as much as $24 per month!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Buying the Plus package we get access to Secure Core, which is very useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With ProtonVPN i can safely use the network wherever I am because my traffic is encrypted.
