Frequntly Asked Quetion (FAQ)

Q. I know you recommend Proton for Mail and VPN, but what about their other services?


Yes! The Proton ecosystem offers a great set of services, and they go to great lengths to protect your privacy. Here is a quick breakdown of each service offered by Proton:

Proton Mail: Proton Mail won’t spy on you nor your emails to show you targeted ads. In fact, they encrypt each email, so it is IMPOSSIBLE for the Proton team (or anyone else) to access them. They also have strict phishing, spam, and tracking protection for all email communications. Like all Proton services, Proton Mail has a simple, yet user-friendly interface.

Proton VPN: Nowadays, most VPN providers are after more than just your money. But not with Proton. Their secure VPN sends all internet traffic through an encrypted VPN tunnel, so your passwords and confidential data stay safe, even over public networks such as airports, coffee shops, etc. Proton is a Swiss VPN provider, so this means that they do not log user activity or share data with third parties. Their anonymous VPN service promotes a safe Internet, without the surveillance.

Proton Calendar: Proton Calendar works just like your calendar in Gmail, Outlook, or iCloud. The main difference is that everything in Proton is encrypted. It automatically secures your meetings and events while also protecting the names and email addresses of the individuals that you have invited. If you receive a meeting invitation via your Proton Mail inbox, it will give you the option to add it to your secure calendar. So far the biggest issue that we have come across with Proton Calendar is they do not have great shared calendar/team calendar options.

Proton Drive: If you store photos, videos, documents, and other types of media in the cloud, then Proton Drive is for you. It provides automatic cross-device syncing, which means your files are available on every device you own, 24/7.

Unlike most cloud providers, Proton Drive is open source, and they are audited by independent parties. This essentially means that ANYONE can take it upon themselves to verify that Proton’s encryption works as advertised. They provide free file storage, but to access additional features, you can always subscribe to one of their cheap plans.
