If you ever wanted a free VPN to secure mobile traffic, the new Proton VPN might be the best solution in the long run.
A team of researchers from CERN and MIT joined forces a few years ago with a noble purpose. Then, they set out to put the privacy of the Internet first, creating a secure email service. Fully encrypted, ProtonMail has done wonders for those who value the intimacy of email conversations.
Last year, the same researchers expanded their collaboration after US law allowed the authorities to more closely monitor the online activity of Internet users in their territory. Thus, Proton VPN was created. The free VPN service was offered in beta format to the curious in March 2017, just for desktop systems. Last June, the same service could be experienced by all end-users.
The latest Proton VPN creator announcement is about launching the Android version. This is available today in several variants. If you want a free VPN to encrypt traffic from your mobile, ProtonVPN is more than enough in most circumstances. Optionally, you can get paid for the same service up to $ 24 a month, depending on the claims you have for the servers on which the traffic will be displayed.
Without paying any money, you can traffic from three different countries without speed limits. The only important limitation is that, using the same account, you can connect from a single device. If you pay $ 24 a month, you have secure access from ten devices using as intermediary servers around the world.
The Proton VPN service uses the OpenVPN open source protocol behind. It is compatible with a great variety of platforms and devices, although a dedicated application that makes connection easier is a bit better. The application can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.
