Cloak your online habits and activities with the help of this user-friendly and modern-looking virtual private network application
ProtonVPN is a VPN service that, just like most other true-blooded services of this type out there, allows you to protect your online anonymity, unblock websites and bypass various filters and geo-restrictions, just to name a few.
If the Proton moniker sounds familiar, then that's because ProtonVPN is built with the support of ProtonMail, an email service that's all about security and privacy protection.
Having said that, this service aims to offer a bit more than most other VPN services. For instance, it integrates with Tor, and, it uses specific in-house algorithms to ensure that all your data stays confidential, and it's Swiss-based (Switzerland currently has some of the powerful privacy laws).
Even though it was initially developed for keeping ProtonMail users safe, you can now use it for whatever reason you seem fit via bespoke clients for Windows, macOS, Linux, and even Android.
Modern-looking app with novice-accessible UI
The Windows client is indeed a modern-looking and smooth-running application. It boasts a clean, black-themed UI with a design that goes exquisitely well with Windows 10 and its black taskbar.
On the right side of the main window, you're provided with a set of servers with scattered in countries all over the globe. There's also a very comprehensive map preview, and a live Session Traffic analyzer so you can better visualize and understand the whole tunneling process.
In addition, the app offers a compact UI mode which allows you to connect to any server and access any profile while occupying as less space as possible on your computer's desktop.
Last but not least, there's a Settings section from where you can view all sorts of information about your account and subscription plans, as well as enable or disable some useful options such as like Notifications, Auto Connect, Start with Windows, Start Minimized, and VPN Kill Switch.
Swiss-based VPN service with stylish clients
To conclude, if you're in the market for a VPN service, then you should at least check out ProtonVPN. As mentioned at the start of the review, there are a lot of reasons why ProtonVPN is probably one of the most secure solutions of this sort out there. Not only this, but the VPN client for Windows is as stylish as they get.
