How to increase your storage space

Storage space

All Proton plans come with encrypted storage shared between Proton Mail(new window) and Proton Drive(new window). We explain how you can check your storage allowance and boost your storage space if you need more.

How much storage have I got?

You can find your storage allowance, along with your current storage usage, in the lower left corner of the Proton Mail web app.

Web app storage indicator

To find your current storage in our iOS and Android mobile apps, go to Settings → Account Settings and select your account. Your current storage allowance and usage are located under the Account header.

How can I increase my storage?

Our Proton Free plan comes with 500 MB of storage by default. After signing up for Free, you can boost your storage to 1 GB by completing four simple actions(new window) to complete your account setup.

If you’d like to further boost your storage, you’ll need to upgrade to a paid plan. Unlike other free internet services, Proton doesn’t harvest your personal data to generate revenue by showing advertisements. Instead, we offer paid plans that provide additional features, including increased storage capacity:

  • Proton Mail Plus: 15 GB
  • Proton Unlimited: 500 GB
  • Proton Visionary (legacy plan not available for purchase): 3 TB

If you need even more storage, consider one of our Proton for Business plans, which allows you to add more storage by adding users:

  • Proton Essentials: 15 GB per user
  • Proton Business: 500 GB per user

For example, if you wanted 2 TB of storage, you could sign up for Proton Business with four users (4 x 500 GB = 2 TB). You could then distribute that 2 TB of storage between yourself and up to three other users as you wish.

Proton Storage Bonuses

To thank all of you who pay for Proton for your loyalty and continuing support, we give you an annual Storage Bonus.

Our annual Storage Bonuses used to be fixed at 1 GB per year for all Proton plans. But now your annual bonus depends on what plan you have.
