  1. Make Linux Proton VPN the same as Windows/Mac

    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. Exclude trusted Wi-Fi networks from the Always-On VPN

    The ability to have always-on VPN is great, however, there are times when this is might not be wanted. For example, on a home network, or when connected to a personal cellular hotspot, it might not be necessary to have the VPN active.

    The feature I would like to see in Proton VPN is the ability to add Wi-Fi Networks to an exclusion list for the Always On VPN. Most basic scenario is "Proton VPN enabled on all networks except my home, personal network".

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. Port Forwarding support for Linux

    Port Forwarding is available on Windows (https://protonvpn.com/support/port-forwarding/) but there's no ETA about its availability in Linux.

    Creating this specific feature request for Linux support. Feel free to create a copy for MacOS if that's your use case.

  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. Better map: individual city markers and country outlines

    The server markers on the map can be confusing, especially in very large countries. lt would be nice to have one marker per City, which would also make it easier to find a location closer to yourself in countries like the USA.
    What makes it even more confusing is that there are no country outlines in the desktop (or at least Windows) client. As a result, you often have to guess where each country marker is. One marker per city would help, but even better would be country outlines like in the Android app.
    Another thing that confused me was…

  12. 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?

  14. 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…

  15. Linux: SSH tunnel to a server, then OpenVPN through this tunnel

    Raw OpenVPN is often blocked. So one simple option would be to start an SSH tunnel to the VPN server port 443 or 80 or 53 like this:

    ssh -N -D 127.0.0.1:10000 -oUserKnownHostsFile=<you provide> -p 443 <username>@<vpn_host_IP> &

    then

    sudo openvpn location.protonvpn.tcp.ovpn

    ovpn config would contain setting:
    socks-proxy 127.0.0.1:10000

    This costs nothing but ROI is tremendous: all users of operators where OpenVPN protocol is blocked will be yours.

  16. Stop offering your services in so-called Israel or rename it to Occupied palestinian territories

    I think you shouldn't offer your services in so-called Israel or you should rename it to Occupied palestinian territories considering the ongoing colonial apartheid and humanitarian crisis since 1948. If you proud yourselves on enabling human rights, this is one way to do that.

  17. Stop Auto Renewal

    Why would anyone sign up for auto renewal without even trying your product. Do you have such low confidence in your product that you must include auto renewal in order to keep your business going? This should not be part of your business model. Once you pay for a plan (*auto renewal required) they make it as difficult as possible to remove auto renewal. I'm a new paying customer and this is how you treat me. I've wasted so much time and effort trying to figure out how to stop auto renewal, only to find that I must downgrade my…

  18. Diskless Servers on SecureCore

    Maybe this is already being done as of recent, but i can't find confirmation anywhere that the infrastucture is configured in such a manner.
    Would increase my already high trust witrh Proton, for ProtnVPN, to confirm they run their servers diskless, at least in the SecureCore.

  20. Configure which servers NOT to connect to.

    Some sites may refuse to connect.
    Therefore, we would like users to be able to configure VPN servers that they do not use by creating profiles.
