Introducing your friends and family to Proton helps us create a safer internet. Besides, our security and privacy features work best when you’re communicating with people who are also using Proton Mail.

So we’ve introduced a referral scheme to thank our Plus customers for helping others discover Proton. 

When you refer a friend, they’ll get a free month of Proton Mail Plus. If they subscribe after their free trial, you’ll get up to $90 of credits toward your subscription.

How to refer a friend

1. Invite your friends to Proton Mail

You can find your referral link in your account settings(new window) on our website. 

2. They get a free month of Proton Mail Plus

Make sure they use your referral link when they sign up!

3. If they subscribe after their free trial, you’ll get Proton Mail credits

Once their free trial is over, you’ll get:

  • $5 if they subscribe for a month
  • $15 if they subscribe for 12 months or longer

FAQs

How can I enter the referral program? 

The program is open to Proton Mail Plus customers with no arrears on their account.  

Where can I find my referral link?

You can find your referral link by going to your referral dashboard(new window) or by signing in to your Proton Account account on your browser. Once signed in, select SettingsGo to SettingsRefer a friend to find your referral link

My referral link uses “pr.tn”. What’s that?

We’re using the pr.tn(new window) domain to provide shorter referral links that are easier to share. It is safe to use, and will simply redirect your friends to a personalized signup page.

I referred someone but they forgot to use my referral link. Can I still get credits?

Sadly no. It’s important that your referee uses your referral link when they sign up. If they have any trouble using your link, contact our customer support team straight away. 

Can I invite friends who have used Proton Mail before?

No. You’ll only get credits from referring people who have never used Proton Mail before.

How many people can I refer?

You can refer as many people as you like, but the maximum amount of referral credits you can earn is $90.

Can I just post my referral link online?

No. You should only share your link with people you know. We may remove people who spam or bulk mail their links.

How can I track my invites and rewards?

You can track your invites and rewards in your referral dashboard(new window) or by signing in to your Proton Mail account on your browser: Settings → Go to Settings → Refer a friend. 

You’ll also receive an email when someone you’ve referred subscribes to Proton Mail Plus. 

In my account I see that I’ve received 4.99 credits instead of 5. Why?

Credits are based on the actual pricing of our Mail Plus plan, which is 4.99 in all supported currencies. For the sake of clarity, we’ve rounded this amount to 5 wherever communicated. 

As credits are meant to be used automatically when you get a new Mail Plus invoice, this has no impact on your experience.

When will I get my credits?

Your credits will be automatically applied to your next month’s bill. 

Can I exchange my credits in cash?

You can only use your credits on your Proton Mail Plus subscription. 

I’m using the Proton Mail mobile app. Where can I find my referral link?

You can find your referral link in your referral dashboard(new window). Just sign in to your Proton Account using a web browser.

What happens to my credits if I change my subscription plan?

Our referral scheme is only open to Proton Mail Plus users. 

If you change your subscription plan, you won’t be able to use the referral scheme any more. But you’ll still be able to redeem any credits you’ve already earned.
