We are changing the price for monthly Unlimited plan subscriptions

At Proton, our mission is to make online privacy the default for everyone. This is why we offer a 100% free plan for all our products. Proton doesn’t show you ads or sell your data — we rely on subscriptions to our premium products to fund our services.

We believe that building a robust Proton ecosystem is crucial to the future of privacy and security and that by offering a secure and privacy-focused alternative, we can compete with Big Tech’s ecosystems. Part of this work requires investing in new products and services, such as the upcoming launch of Proton Pass, which will expand our ecosystem and further reduce your exposure to Big Tech’s surveillance capitalism.

Proton Pass premium features will soon be included in the Proton Unlimited plan, together with the premium features of our encrypted cloud storage, email, calendar, and VPN services. We believe this significantly adds to the plan’s value. At the same time, Proton is also contending with higher costs, particularly much higher server and electricity costs impacting our data centers in Switzerland.

For these reasons, we’re changing the price for new Proton Unlimited monthly subscribers from $11.99/month to $12.99/month effective July 1, 2023.

It’s important to note that there is no price increase for one-year or two-year Proton Unlimited subscriptions. Furthermore, there will be no price increase for existing subscribers to the one-month Unlimited plan.

With the upcoming launch of Proton Pass, Proton Unlimited will now provide access to the paid features of five privacy-first services instead of four, and we’re committed to delivering even more value in the years to come. Developing new features and services is only possible with your support. If you’re considering a monthly subscription to Proton Unlimited, you can subscribe before July 1 to lock in the lower price.

Thank you again for supporting the work that we do. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out or join the discussion on Reddit(new window).
