Proton Free

Pricing: Free

We created Proton Mail to bring encrypted email to everyone around the world. We know that some of the people who need our service the most will not be able to pay, so there will always be an option to create a free email address(new window).

Our free plan comes with the same security and ease of use as our paid plans. Here are the main features and limits of Proton Free:

Unlike many internet companies that depend on invading your privacy to sell ads, Proton is funded by revenue from paid plans. Because we rely on you for funding, and because you rely on Proton to protect your data, we’re always incentivized to keep your data secure and private.

Your subscription pays for the development of new features and services, as well as the cost of running Proton. By upgrading to a paid plan, not only will you get access to advanced features, you’ll support our mission to provide citizens around the world with an internet where privacy is the default.
