ProtonVPN helps keep your digital life private for free

Above ProtonVPN

In 2014, a team based in Geneva, Switzerland launched ProtonMail, a fully encrypted end-to-end email service. The great thing about it is that it has a free tier that's free forever. It does this by first passing user traffic through the Secure Core network in certain countries, including Switzerland and Iceland, where there is strong legal protection for privacy.

VPNs have been popular tools in the online world for years, helping internet users cloak their true location so they can access services usually restricted to other regions, while also enhancing their privacy. A few weeks later, in April, President Trump signed legislation around the repeal, something that in December will effectively roll back Obama-era rules preventing ISPs from selling customer's browsing history.

Using the free service, a user's communications are routed through encrypted tunnels located in three countries, getting around most censorship and data monitoring efforts. It is for sure, but at the time of its original announcement back in March, ProtonMail promised to address "many of the security shortcomings which impact existing VPN services", including those that use pre-shared keys or insecure protocols and encryption. The ProtonVPN Visionary tier offers top tier features like up to 10 devices allowed, highest bandwidth on offer, secure core and tor server access, and ProtonMail Visionary included as an add-on.

12 cities to receive Justice Department aid to lower crime
Justice Department spokesman Ian Prior said the department is anticipating that more cities will be added later in the year. Buffalo is among 12 cities that will participate in the Department of Justice's new National Public Safety Partnership .

Following a round of testing, on Tuesday, Proton Technologies said that ProtonVPN is now available and officially out of beta.

Better yet, ProtonVPN has a number of subscription packages, and the cheapest option is free. ProtonMail says it relies on user upgrades to keep the company running, because (in its own fighting words) it doesn't "abuse user privacy to sell advertisements" like "Google and Facebook". This means that ProtonVPN is actually compatible with any other VPN client that supports OpenVPN.

ProtonVPN wants you to be able to browse the internet without worrying who might be spying on you.
