Get Started

Proton Mail can better protect your privacy if your close contacts are also using it. With the Proton Mail referral program, when you invite a friend, both of you will benefit: they’ll receive the gift of privacy, and you’ll earn free months when they subscribe to Proton Mail Plus.

We’re introducing the referral program gradually, so it may take some time before you’re invited to try the program.

How does it work?

1. Invite your friends to Proton Mail

Share your personal invite with them. Go to Settings(new window) to get it.

2. Your friends enjoy Proton Mail Plus free for a month

They’ll get the best of what Proton Mail has to offer.

3. You get free months when they sign up for Proton Mail Plus

Depending on the plan your friend has subscribed to, you’ll receive up to three months of Proton Mail Plus on us.

You can earn up to 18 months of Proton Mail Plus in total.
