Black Friday 2017 – Proton Mail is available at a discount for the first time ever!

Share this page

From Black Friday until Cyber Monday (Nov 24-27, 2017), it is possible to get up to a 45% discount on Proton Mail subscriptions!

This year, we are happy to offer again a special promotion for Black Friday! Last year, we had a very interesting promotion where we released a limited number of Proton Mail Lifetime accounts. While last year’s promotion was very successful and even made the news, we received complaints from many users who were unable to participate due to the high price of Lifetime accounts (1337€), combined with the small number available (they sold out immediately).

We have listened to your feedback and for Black Friday this year, we are offering a much more accessible promotion with the introduction of the two year plans for a very limited time. The special two year subscriptions we’re making available for this promotion come with very steep discounts. Proton Mail Plus, for example, is being offered with a 33% discount, which means that instead of 5€/month, you will only pay 3.29€/month. If you pair Proton Mail with Proton VPN, there is an additional 20% discount, which means that it is possible to get a total discount of 45%.

In the spirit of fairness, this promotion is available to both new and existing Proton Mail users, and is available for all Proton Mail and Proton VPN plans. It will be available for only 4 days between November 24-27, 2017. If you are new to Proton Mail, first sign up for a free account, and afterwards, you will get a popup which will allow you to subscribe to a paid plan at the Black Friday pricing.

Unlike our current plans which are either billed monthly or annually, two year subscriptions are billed once every two years. While it is only possible to subscribe to these special 2-year plans during the promotional period, once you have subscribed, your subscription will be forever discounted for as long as you keep it active.

In addition to providing a significant discount from the regular price, subscribing to a 2-year plan is also a great way to support Proton Mail. Last year, the incredible support we received through our Black Friday promotion provided us with enough funds to launch Proton VPN this year.  The proceeds from this year’s Black Friday promotion will similarly be used to develop exciting new products in 2018.

To participate in this year’s Black Friday promotion, you simply have to log into the Proton Mail web app (, or if you are already logged in, click on the Black Friday sale button in the upper right menu (if you don’t see it, you may need to refresh your browser window). You can also view and select 2-year plans directly by going to Settings –> Dashboard.

Proton Mail is entirely community funded, as we don’t sell ads or abuse your privacy, and all proceeds will be used to further develop Proton Mail. Thanks to your support, in the past year, we were able to introduce features such as encrypted contacts, custom folders, auto-responder, two-factor authentication, and new Professional plans for businesses. We’re looking forward to continue improving Proton Mail and making the Internet a better place.

Best Regards and Happy Holidays,
The Proton Mail Team
