  1. 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.

  2. Adult content - move out states that Require ID Verification or create safe list of states

    Consider moving servers out of states (like Virginia, for example) that require ID verification to access "adult content." Failing that, please allow VPN users to create a list of "safe" states or else to block/opt out of those that aren't safe for online browsing.

    Allowing a pre-selected list of states would also be helpful for sites that only operate in certain regions of the U.S. and block access to states where they aren't in business.

  3. Wireguard pre-shared key

    Please add support for pre-shared key with Wireguard VPN connections. This is to prevent possible quantum computer related attacks, and it should be a low-hanging fruit for both implementation and performance.

  4. CMD W on Mac

    This is not so much something that went wrong but a way to make the App work a little better on Mac. For Proton VPN when you hit CMD W, or click the red circle, it removes the icon from the Dock but it is still working in the background.
    For most Mac Apps, including Proton Mail, hitting CMD W, or clicking the red circle, closes the visible App but leaves the icon in the dock. This lets you quickly open the App again.

    It would be nice if Proton VPN acted the same way.

  5. Modify Linux app settings when not logged in

    I got into a headscratcher because my gnome-keyring was reset while using the advanced killswitch. After a reboot I was logged out of PVPN and couldn't disable the killswitch since the settings button of the app was disabled. Alternative idea, include this command in the setup guide for Linux so other people with a similar issue can look up the solution from their phone or something: nmcli con delete pvpn-killswitch-perm

  6. 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…

  7. Quick kill switch toggle in the Proton VPN GTK app tray menu

    It is already possible to add custom VPN connections to the tray in the Proton VPN GTK app.

    I think there should also be an option to quickly toggle on the kill switch (both standard and advanced) in the tray.

  8. 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…

  9. More Toronto Servers

    I currently live in Canada and geographically closest servers to me are in Toronto. However, with Toronto having relatively fewer servers and with average server load throughout the day remaining around 70-80% or more, It has become quite frustrating. I'm an 'always-on VPN' user, So I keep on having to check the server load and re-connect to a server with lower load manually (even that is somewhere in 70%+ range), as there is no option to automatically switch server to lower load in IOS yet. This affects me significantly since I have 3 Gbps internet connection.

    Please kindly consider adding…

  10. Add whitelist to Kill Switch

    Allow selecting specific networks (LAN or WiFi) to be excluded from the "permanent kill switch" feature on Windows.
    This would allow me to connect to my LAN without VPN while at home. But whenever I take my notebook somewhere else, it will be offline until a VPN connection is established.

  11. 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.

  12. More profile customization with independent features (MacOS 13+)

    I would love if we could create a profile with different configurable and automatic combinations allowed as well as multi-select options. So for instance say I wanted to connect to a p2p server in whatever country (don't care) I cannot currently just do that, I need to specify P2P then specify a country rather than random or fastest option (for country selection).

  14. Netshield settings for Browser Plugin

    I would really love to have the netshield an maybe even the killswitch settings in the VPN Plugin for Browsers. There are some reasons why I dont always have my VPN Client on but I would really love to use the VPN in my Browser all time with all the settings.

  15. Improve screen reader support

    As a screen reader user it can be fairly tricky tabbing around the interface to get access to all the various sections and areas of the app such as viewing the server list by country. You can get most things done through Windows command prompt which is excellent but for most people it would make life so much easier if screen reader accessability was taken into consideration during development of the app. For that reason I find it quick and simple grabbing server configs from my account using either Openvpn or Wireguard for windows as the interfaces and menues in…

  16. Android: Smart View (Screen/Mirror Cast)

    The Samsung feature called "Smart View" which allows screen casting/screen mirroring your phone to the TV does not work if Proton VPN is enabled despite having the "Smart View" app in the excluded apps list in Proton VPN and despite allowing LAN connections is enabled as well.

    Please fix this issue as this feature can and has been done with other VPN providers.

  17. Bring back Permanent KillSwitch in Linux Protonvpn v4

    Protonvpn v4 on Ubuntu no longer supports the Permanent KillSwitch.
    This poses a Risk if a user forgets to manually start Protonvpn or if a user gets disconnected from a current session.

  18. Split tunneling for folders

    I would like to have the option to split tunnel folders so that I don't have to add each program individually to the split tunneling list.

    For example, I want to add all my Steam games to the split tunneling list (for multiplayer games), with this option I only had to add my Steam library folder to the list.

    In this split tunneling folder, there could be an option to exclude some subfolders, so that some games, for example, can still run through the VPN.

  20. Country-specific config for wireguard

    For OpenVPN it is possible to download a country-specific configuration file which - when used - connects to the fastest available server.
    Please provide country-specific configs also for wireguard - currently I can only download a config for a specific server in a country.
    Thank you!
