  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. Automatically enable vpn on public or compromised Wifi's

    Offer a switch to make Proton VPN automatically connect to its services when it detects that you are connected to a Public or Compromised Wifi.

    This can be useful if you don't want the VPN to turn on in your home wifi, but you still want to turn it on when connected to a public wifi.

  3. Apple TV app

    Buried in Apple's tvOS 17 announcement is support for 3rd party VPN apps on tvOS. It would be amazing if Proton VPN had a tvOS app.

  4. A Proper ProtonVPN Linux Client With GUI

    I would love to see a proper ProtonVPN Linux Client with GUI that looks similar to the Windows version and with the same features. The current Linux client does not look good and it's too much and not plain and simple like with the Windows version. Is there anyone else that are not happy with the current client and want a better one?

  5. Custom DNS

    It be great to have the option to set a custom DNS, such as nextDNS, to customise DNS filtering of cookies, and blocking of websites.

  6. 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.

  7. Please Support Split Tunneling on Linux

    Split Tunneling is not currently officially supported for Linux. This feature is a must for me. The ProtonVPN tooling (both cli and gui) is not up to par with the MacOS and Windows counterparts. Please show us that you care about the Linux community.

  8. Use Quantum-Resistant Cryptogtaphic Algorithm

    OpenVPN uses TLS for encryption, Quantum Proof Algorithms including the four selected by NIST are provided by liboqs. The library is already present in repositories of many Linux Distros. liboqs is integrated in TLS, means no additional work is required for the client side. This would be very easy to implement in The VPN.

    Much better alternative would be that Proton makes it's own Algorithm. It would be a good way to add it as an optional feature in the initial stages for testing.

  9. Disable VPN when on trusted Wifi Connections

    I love ProtonVPN. I use it on my Android phone, and have it installed on my home router to protect all my devices on my home network. When I connect my Android phone to my home wifi network, I would love for my ProtonVPN app to sense the new connection and disconnect it on my phone--so that I only use the mobile app when I'm out in the world on 4G/5G and public wifi connections.

  10. Support stealth protocol on Windows

    Dear Proton team,

    I recently bought Proton VPN pro and it is working fantastic on my phone. As an Iranian user of Proton VPN I have trouble connecting on Windows. I have to try for ages to connect to a server.
    It works great on my phone using stealth protocol.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Create private VPN (like meshnet)

    NordVPN has a great Meshnet feature

    https://nordvpn.com/features/meshnet/

    It would be great to have something similar.

    Thing is Android devices allow for only 1 VPN connection at once (I think iOS is the same?) So I cannot currently use Proton VPN and Zerotier for example. Having a Protonvpn "Meshnet" would solve my needs.

  15. Show server latency

    without knowing if I'll get good latency makes people hesitant to subscribe for premium plans. Let people browse the servers and see the latency they get even if it's locked out for free users.

  17. Needed features for IRAN

    Hi from Iran
    As an Iranian, I can confirm Stealth protocol is one of the rare protocols that is still working, many Iranians are willing to pay for the premium and Gift the premium version to the ones who can't afford it so that these features will be helpful:

    1)Crypto payment (it's critical!)
    2)Promo codes especially for people in Iran
    3)Add an option to buy the premium subscription and send it to another account as an gift

    Thank you for standing with us ;)

  18. Stealth for Linux

    Develop these applications for the desktop on Linux.
    It's not normal that these applications are not available on Linux for a paid client.
    GNU / Linux is globally open-source, free and fight for the privacy and freedom in the digital world.

  19. ProtonVPN Flatpak/AppImage for Linux distros

    These days it is very common to package applications across linux distros into flatpaks or appimages. These would be easy to manage for the ProtonVPN team and provide us with a working GUI app instead of the hard to manage cli client.

  20. Sort by Server Load

    It would be great if you could select a country in the Proton VPN app and then sort by server load. That would save having to scroll through a huge list to find the servers with the lowest current load.
