  1. Feature parity between Windows/Mac and Linux

    I've started using Proton VPN in Windows, and it's a great app, full of resources, with great graphics, many resources, ability to auto-start, start minimized, auto-connect to a profile... The Mac version also looks very similar to Windows'.

    However, recently I changed to Linux (Pop OS, Ubuntu based), and although I had no problems installing the GUI version of the app, it does not even remotely resemble the Windows/Mac version. It's a very, veeeeeeeeery simple app, without the majority of configuration options present in their other OS's counterparts.

    Proton VPN team should dedicate more time to make the Linux version…

  2. Dedicated IP for personal plans

    It is an option for business users and would be a nice add for home users. My wife is sick of all the capchas and blocked sites from the VPN. I have been using Proton mail since 2019 and the unlimited since last year. Had to switch back to mail only until you add the dedicated ip to home users at a reasonable cost.

    Thank you for the consideration.

  3. Select country on free plan

    I want to be able to select the country at least, I don't care if I cant choose the server or not, but its annoying having to connect to a place on the other side of the world. I most likely will stop using this VPN if this is not added back.

  4. Static Port forwarding

    Please change the dynamic port forwarding to static port forwarding why:

    In my BitTorrent client I have +200 torrents, dynamic port is boring because EVERY TIME I connect to a server I have to change the port in the BitTorrent client settings and the re-announcement is really long for all my torrents.

    Please add to the ProtonVPN dashboard panel or in the application, the possibility to add static port like MullvadVPN do, example for the ProtonVPN Plus plans add the possibility to add 10 random forwarded ports.

    Plus static forwarded port may work if you use the manual configuration: OpenVPN…

    Somewhere in the settings or connection page, please provide a way for paid subscribers to exclude connecting to FREE servers when not selecting a specific server.

  6. Split Tunneling: Two Different VPN Connections Simultaneously

    If technically feasible, I would find it great if two VPN connections could be established simultaneously via split tunneling, for example one for streaming and one for everything else, or one with port-forwarding and at the same time a second one without port-forwarding.

  7. Exclude unwanted countries from the list of random and fastest servers.

    It often happens that in random or fastest mode, a connection is established through servers in countries that are not desirable for many people.

  8. Sort the list of countries by proximity

    This would be really useful for those of us who download via Torrent, every time I want to download via Torrent I have to manually search for the country closest to my country to get the fastest download speed. Which makes me have to scroll down quite a lot, when you do it so many times it ends up being very tiring and that's why I would like the country closest to mine to be at the top of the list.

  10. Allow Killswitch to be enabled with Split Tunnel

    Currently, the app will not allow you to use the Split Tunnel feature if you have the Killswitch enabled. Having migrated from Private Internet Access, I was used to having this possibility with their client and would love to see this in Proton VPN as well.

    Having some exceptions configured to bypass the VPN should not completely block the killswitch feature and open the risk of IP leaks.

    I would be okay with the VPN app completely killing my bypassed connections as well, it wouldn't even have to be gracefully respecting those. That would just be a nice-to-have.

  11. Browser Extension Split-Tunnelling: allowlist AND blocklist

    Add the ability to choose which websites DO use the VPN (not just which websites should be excluded from the VPN tunnel).

  12. Please re-build ProtonVPN Linux GUI app with Qt Framework

    Hi! I like the ProtonVPN GUI app on Linux. It has so many good features.

    But I think that the choice of GTK was a mistake. This framework is just one large piece of garbage - from both points of view - devs and user experience.

    1. Most serious, quality and useful apps for Linux (about 90%) are uses Qt Framework.

    2. GTK is unpopular. Every year more and more existing Linux software are rewritten with Qt Framework. It's stable and gives better look'n'feel experience.

    3. GTK development is chaotic. The developers themselves don't know what they want. It looks like that GTK…

  13. Change desktop app icon color to indicate connection status

    The proton VPN app icon currently shows the connection status by showing a tiny cross sign or a tick, which is hardly noticeable when you have a high-resolution monitor. Changing the icon colour will make it much better. This can even be an option for the user to select the icon they would like to see when the connection is established or disconnected.

  14. Headless CLI

    There is little reason why the CLI is not able to run in a headless setup and needs authentication via UI.
    Seems easy to implement and I seem to remember that this once worked?

  16. Porn/adult sites blocker for NetShield

    Warp (CloudFlare) has a feature for their equivalent of NetShield that also blocks porn/adult sites from the DNS, in addition to options for malware and ads. Consider adding this for a family-friendly setting?

  18. Basic VPN plan

    My current VPN service, which includes Google VPN and additional features, costs $25 per year. While I have the free version of ProtonVPN, I don't use it because it lacks servers in my home country, causing issues with accessing some local websites. I would consider switching to ProtonVPN if they offered a paid tier just above the free plan with a reasonable price, ideally including 1 or 2 overseas servers and 1-2 local servers for accessing local content.

  19. Improved server search and profile creation.

    Provide the ability to search for servers and create profiles using filters based not only on country but things like city, state, type of server (e.g., basic, P2P), load, latency, etc.

  20. Include Domain Names in Split Tunneling Exclude list

    Currently, adding a website to the exclude list requires that I first must find out the IPv4 numerical address, which is not easy to do for a lot of people. I eventually found: https://dns-lookup.com

    It would be nice if the exclude list could accept names instead of numbers, it would only require using your own DNS server to return the numerical address to the app as an appended tag for the exclude entry - so the app would still work pretty much the same as before
