Share this page

Last updated: Dec. 5, 2022

We’re extending our Black Friday deals through the end of 2022!

Now is the best time to support a better internet where privacy is the default — and save some money! This Black Friday, we’re offering up to 40% off our Mail and Unlimited plans.

This has been a challenging year for many people, and with rising inflation and a higher cost of living, we feel it’s more important than ever to continue serving the community. For this reason, we’re offering larger-than-normal discounts for this year’s Black Friday to make Proton accessible to even more people.

Using Proton Mail is an easy way for you to protect your privacy. We remove trackers from your emails and secure them with end-to-end encryption, so no one can read your messages but you and your recipients. And with Proton Calendar, you can keep your schedule secure and private. The Proton ecosystem also now includes Proton Drive, our encrypted cloud storage service, and Proton VPN.

We make it easy for you to leave Big Tech’s spying behind: You can import all your existing contacts, messages, and calendars with one click. Take control of your information with our modern and easy-to-use inbox. 

Proton’s Black Friday deals are available from now until December 4.

Become a Visionary and be part of Proton’s story

When we first launched Proton Mail in 2014, we introduced the Visionary plan, an exclusive plan for our early supporters which gave them the best Proton had to offer. For this Black Friday, we’re bringing back the Visionary plan for a very limited time as an exclusive for Proton Unlimited subscribers (see FAQ*).

With Proton Visionary, you get access to all our premium services and features at their highest limits, including Mail, Calendar, Drive, VPN, and 3 TB of storage. If you’re a family, a small team, or simply looking for the best of Proton, the Visionary plan is perfect for you. You can have a total of 6 users, and each user will also get their own inbox and email address(es).

To get started, ensure you have or get a Proton Unlimited subscription as this offer is only shown to Unlimited plan users. Then, sign in to your Proton Account and click the % Special offer button. The amount you paid for the Proton Unlimited plan will be credited toward your Proton Visionary subscription.

Towards a better internet

We believe a better world starts with privacy and digital freedom. We’re working toward this vision by developing online services that put you first, giving you the tools to protect your privacy, secure your data, and fight censorship.

Our mission is only possible thanks to the Proton community who support our work by subscribing to paid plans. By upgrading during Black Friday, you will get the best deal and contribute directly to our goal of building a better internet that serves everyone.
