  1. 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.

  2. Reconnect to next best server

    Occasionally I have a slow connection to the "optimal" server or the quality of the connection changes overtime. I would love a single click button to connect to the next best server and not automatically reconnect to the one I was just connected to like it does when I manually cycle it.

  4. Snooze function

    Some websites block the usage of VPNs it would be great if we could snooze the VPN for a few minutes without having to disconnect and then reconnect manually.
    Would be extra good if it could be done with a right click on the taskbar or system tray icon.

  5. 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.

  6. Show city in UI (top right)

    I've noticed (top right of UI) that ProtonVPN displays location-based information i.e. the country, server, and IP address only, it currently does not include the current city. Adding this piece of information could significantly improve the functionality.

  7. VPN on/off widget for iOS 17

    It would be great if we could have a regular widget with on/off and pause option. It would be very practical compared to having to open the app every time you want to perform any of those actions.

  8. 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."

  9. 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.

  10. Submit Linux package updates in official distro repos

    Proton VPN is open source and uses well-known and established components of the NetworkManager stack. Due to these two things, there is virtually nothing standing in the way of the Proton VPN team from building and submitting packages officially to Linux distributions like Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, EPEL, etc. Proton VPN is further enhanced by packaging upstream by increasing the availability of Proton VPN software packages in the global software package mirroring network (deterring censorship) and benefiting from improved transparency and openness by building packages through distribution-supported build systems, which are often reproducible.

    The policies of most distros are friendly to…

  11. Block Malware by maintained database (not just dns)

    To my understanding you now only block malware based on dns. I would think it would be very nice if also ip addresses of bad actors would get blocked by using realtime databases of such attackers.

  12. Device status indicator (how many out of 10 are in use)

    Its annoying that their is no overview of how many devices your using out of the 10 allowed.
    Also, it would be nice to be able to name your devices if this feature is added.

  13. Split tunnelling for Android TV

    An essential feature given how much video and game (Geforce Now for example) streaming is done now a days on a device such as a Nvidia Shield. This has been supported by the Mullvad VPN client on Android TV for years.

  14. 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…

  15. Add Stealth to Router Downloads

    Please add the stealth protocol to router download options. Currently you support standard and secure core features only on UDP/TCP. Adding Stealth mode as a configuration download option would allow me to better secure all of my network.

  16. Move back to the previous UI

    Today's recent UI change is terrible. The "Secure Core" toggle switch on the main screen is gone and now takes 2-3 clicks to turn on/off, whereas before it was a single click on the toggle.

    The country flag squares was a great UI and now I have to scroll thru a list that's 3x as long to get to the bottom, for example.

    It's a huge downgrade in your UI. Please, please offer the ability to opt-out of this UI redesign, it's terrible.

  17. Double vpn

    Today I'm buying Premium on X, it's cheaper in Türkiye. However, I'm in China so I can't connect to many servers (include all those in Türkiye) directly.But I can connect to some servers in Japan.
    So I connected to Japan on my phone, then I turned on hotspot on my phone and enabled "Allow clients to use VPN". After that I connected my computer to the hotspot. Then on my computer I connected to Türkiye. So I connected to Türkiye indirectly successfully. But I need to use 2 devices.
    I hope you can add the feature "Double VPN" to the…

  18. 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

  19. Use Hardware / Security Key as 2FA

    Allow Hardware Security Keys (FIDO2 like YubiKey) as a backup 2FA for ProtonVPN (like all the other Proton Services). Currently Proton VPN only supports TOTP authenticators for 2FA which is inconvenient especially when all the other Proton services work fine with security keys.

  20. 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.
