What’s included in Proton business plans

All Proton business plans are flexible to allow you to add as many users as your business needs. After selecting the number of users you need when you sign up, you can add and remove users from your plan at any time in the future within your Proton Account.

Each user comes with a certain amount of storage space plus a number of email addresses, and each user can connect to our VPN service(new window) on 1 or up to 10 devices at the same time, depending on your plan.

PlanStorage per userEmail addresses per userVPN connections per user
Proton Mail Essentials15 GB101
Proton Mail Professional50 GB151
Proton Business Suite500 GB2010

For example, if you have a Proton Business Suite plan with four users, you’ll have a total of:

  • 4 x 500 GB = 2000 GB (2 TB) of storage
  • 4 x 20 = 80 addresses
  • 4 x 10 = 40 VPN connections

As an administrator(new window), you can allocate your total storage (in this example, 2 TB) between your users as you wish. You can also create any number of addresses for each user up to your total address limit (in this example, 80).

You can also switch VPN connections on or off for each user (which sets the number of connections to 0 or 10). But you can’t redistribute VPN connections among your user accounts. The number of VPN connections per user is capped at 10.

If you want to increase or decrease your total users, storage, addresses, or VPN connections (with Proton Business Suite), you can do so by adding or removing users.

If you have a Proton Business Suite plan, you can also add(new window) extra (new window)custom domains(new window).
