Security made easy
Our Linux app offers advanced features carefully designed to improve your online security.
Secure Core VPN (coming soon)
Secure Core protects your connection by routing your traffic through multiple servers before it leaves our network, defending you against advanced, network-based attacks.
Secure Core servers are located in hardened data centers in Switzerland, Iceland, and Sweden, protected by strong privacy laws, and operated on Proton's dedicated networks.
A VPN kill switch keeps your IP address safe if something goes wrong with your VPN connection.
If your VPN connection fails, the kill switch will prevent your device from connecting to the internet until your device reconnects to a VPN server.
NetShield speeds up your connection and protects you from malware by filtering out images, scripts, and other resources that are from domains known to host malware.
Available for VPN Plus and Proton Unlimited users, NetShield can also block online trackers and ads.
