Proton Mail goes on sale just once a year, and this year we are offering our biggest ever discount. Both new users and existing users can get up to 50% off on paid plans from Nov. 23 until Nov. 30 2018.

Our Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale is the only time of the year we offer discounted Proton Mail subscriptions. So right now is the best time to upgrade to a paid plan and get access to more features. You will also be supporting our mission to make online privacy available to everyone.

Here’s how to get our Cyber Monday deals:

New users: 

There you’ll get 50% off when you sign up for a new two-year plan. This means you can get Proton Mail Plus for just $2 per month.


Existing free users: 

You can also get 50% off when you sign up for a new two-year Plus plan. You can access the Black Friday offer by logging in at mail.proton.me(new window) and clicking the Black Friday sale icon in the upper right menu bar.

Note, the 50% off offer is only available for the standard Plus plan. However, if you want to upgrade to a Professional or Visionary plan, or a Plus plan for customizations, is also possible to get a discount by going to Settings –> Dashboard. There, you can select any two year plan, and get a discount between 33%-45% compared to the regular monthly price.

Existing paid users:

Promotional pricing is also available to existing paid users! Because existing users have a wide variety of plans, the promotions being offered are different depending on your existing plan. In most cases though, you can also get up to 50% off with a two-year plan!

You can access the Black Friday offer by logging in your Proton Mail account and clicking the Black Friday sale icon in the upper right menu bar.

Additional two-year plans are also available for a limited time only at Settings –> Dashboard. If you do not see the Sale icon, please refresh your browser.

What happens to my existing paid plan?

If you are already a paying Proton Mail user and you take advantage of this promotion, the new plan you select will replace your existing plan. However, when you go to check out, we will automatically credit you the unused balance of your existing subscription, and this is added as a proration credit(new window). Thus, you don’t lose the money you paid for your existing plan.

Need a VPN?

We are also giving discounts of up to 50% off for combined Proton VPN and Proton Mail subscriptions. Proton VPN is a VPN service we launched last year, which features high-speed servers and advanced security features, such as our Secure Core network(new window).

Can I keep the discount after 2 years?

After the first two years, you will keep the two year discount! This means you will get 33%-45% off of the regular monthly pricing, depending on the details of the plan you have selected. Details can be found in our FAQ here(new window).

2-year plans are available exclusively during the promotional period, it will not be possible to get (and keep) this discount after the end of the sale.

An FAQ with a list of common questions and answers, along with a discussion board, can be found here(new window).

How sale proceeds will be used

We’ve accomplished a lot in the past year. We launched PGP support and Address Verification(new window), Encrypted Contacts(new window) and Contact Groups(new window), @proton.me/mail(new window) email addresses, Proton Mail IMAP/SMTP Bridge(new window), and much more. Proton Mail is a community-supported project, and revenue from paid subscriptions is our primary source of funding. Upgrading to a paid plan(new window) will help us continue to improve Proton Mail.

Over the next year, we plan to launch new features, such as encrypted full-text search and Proton Calendar(new window), and we will also release a lot more open source software. You will also be supporting our community and advocacy work, such as expanding access to open source encryption tools.

The Proton community is everything to us, and we’re grateful for your support. We hope many of you will take advantage of our Black Friday sale to support the project, and we’re always happy to get your feedback on Twitter(new window), Facebook(new window), Instagram(new window), or Reddit(new window).

If you have any questions about the Black Friday promotion, feel free to contact our support team(new window). Thank you again for your support, and we wish you a great holiday season!

P.S: Don’t forget, the sale ends on Nov. 30!
