Guide future development

As a community-driven company, we believe in building our products with the input of our users. You can share your feedback through yearly surveys, UI/UX user testing, or by voting on what features and products we should build next.

Translate Proton in your language

Our global localization community of over 2000 volunteers has made privacy and security accessible to millions of people worldwide. Contribute to making privacy accessible in your country by translating Proton’s apps and websites in your language.

Test new features and products

Our community’s feedback and bug reports help Proton develop reliable, secure, and easy-to-use products that protect your privacy and the privacy of the whole community. Contribute to Proton’s app development by becoming a beta tester.

Verify or contribute to our code

All Proton apps are open source, which means anyone can verify that they do what we claim and can contribute to their development. This preserves our community’s trust and ensures the highest level of protection for our users. You can access independent security audits, review our code, or contribute to improving it.

Help keep Proton safe for everyone

The Proton community relies on our services to protect their data. If you are a security researcher, you can assist in identifying, verifying, and resolving potential vulnerabilities. By contributing to our bug bounty program you can help keep Proton safe, earn recognition, and rewards.

Contribute to Proton’s mission

Privacy is collective; we all benefit from each other’s privacy, and we all lose when this is weakened. By choosing to protect your privacy, you’re already taking steps to building a better, more private internet.

But there are many other ways in which you can contribute to the Proton community and help advance our mission.
