  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Option to exclude free servers (for subscribers)

    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.

  5. 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.

  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. 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.

    Allow the use of VPN profiles to setup all/any VPN app settings, grouped into a single profile for quick, multiple use-cases.

  9. 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.

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. CVE-2024-3661 (TunnelVision)

    Make sure ProtonVPN is safe against CVE-2024-3661 (TunnelVision)!

    According to the researchers responsible for the finding: "Using network namespaces on Linux can completely fix this behavior."

  14. 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.

  15. Android improvements (country names, profiles, metrics, random connections)

    A posted this on reddit, but I figured I'd put it here as well.

    I've been a longtime user of ProtonMail and ProtonVPN and am incredibly grateful of everything they've done to make privacy accessible to more people. I also really love the new ProtonMail app. But ProtonVPN has problems.
    To some it up, it seems like functionality has been sacrificed for vague aesthetics.
    Specifics:
    1. The name of the country you are connected to is in tiny text down near the bottom of the screen. This is even worse if you are connected to the "fastest country". Instead most…

  16. 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?

  17. Albanian servers

    Add servers from Albania.
    Google adds are not available in Albania so when connected to Albanian servers you won't see add on YouTube or other Google services.
    I know many will thank me for this

  18. Bring interactive map back to Android app

    I like the new app design on Android, but the map section has just become useless, you can't use it to search for servers, it is just there for this (good looking) fancy animation when you connect to a server from the list.
    I would like to be able to see map markers (one per city) on the map and connect to them via press. For this you obviously should also be able again to traverse the map and zoom in/out.

  19. 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…
