Last year, ProtonMail introduced a very good free VPN for Macintosh and Windows systems. (See http://bit.ly/2mGoOyg for the earlier article about what was then a new VPN product.) Now the company has expanded its offerings to include a free VPN for Android cell phones and tablets. Unlike most other free VPNs, ProtonMail promises to never include any malware. The company also promises there will be no ads and no selling of user data.
The Android version of ProtonVPN can be downloaded for free from Google Play and is free to use, but, like ProtonMail and ProtonVPN for the desktop, the service has a number of optional paid tiers with more features and higher speeds.
ProtonMail’s primary product (encrypted email that is very private) launched in 2013 and is now used by millions of journalists, activists, and members of the general public, according to its developers.
