Proton was born in Switzerland in 2014 when a team of scientists who met at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) decided to build a better internet where privacy is the default.
Proton was born out of a desire to build an internet that puts people before profits, create a world where everyone is in control of their digital lives, and make digital freedom a reality. In this new world, you can communicate with whomever you want, protect your data and identity, avoid having your data sold, and safeguard against cybercrime.
Proton exists to serve the world. Our first and only obligation is always to the Proton community, not advertisers or other third parties. We do not compromise your trust by selling your data and never will. We are committed to fighting for privacy and freedom online and will always stand up to defend an internet that serves the interests of all people.
