Founded by scientists,
made for the world
Proton Mail was founded in 2014 by a group of scientists who met at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). We began as a crowdfunded project, and today Proton has a vast global reach.
Building integrated products for more privacy
Our principal product, Proton Mail, is the world’s largest secure email service. Our second product, Proton VPN(new window), is one of the world’s most popular VPN services. As we add more products, including Proton Calendar, Proton Drive, and Proton Pass we are building an integrated internet platform that gives people control of their information.
Trusted where freedom is under threat
The Proton community includes leaders of the Hong Kong protest movement, New York Times journalists, some of the world’s largest corporations, and millions of ordinary citizens from over 180 countries.
Our team is diverse and dynamic, with more than 400 people representing over 40 different nationalities, with offices in Geneva, Zurich, Taipei, Barcelona, Paris, Skopje, Prague and Vilnius.
