ProtonVPN and ProtonMail are two popular privacy tools (the former is one of the best VPNs) and they are now available in a new bundle with the other Proton services at a new price.
Proton has been overhauling its services in recent months, with the aim of bringing everything under one umbrella. The new proton.me site arrived last month, along with new purple branding and icons, and now Proton has launched a new ‘Proton Unlimited’ subscription that takes you all for a subscription.
Proton Unlimited includes 500GB of shared cloud storage, access to 1700+ VPN servers in 60+ countries, up to 15 email addresses and unlimited labels/folders in Proton Mail, all paid features of Proton Calendar, Proton Drive and more. If you pay annually, it costs $9.99 per month (€9.99), and is also available in monthly ($11.99/month) and two-year ($7.99/month) options.
The new plan is essentially Proton’s version of Google One, but with more privacy-friendly services than you’d get from companies like Google or Microsoft. Proton has been trying to build a complete ecosystem of privacy tools, with more new features and updates on the way. A full desktop sync client for Proton Drive is expected before the end of the year, as well as native support in Proton VPN for third-party WireGuard clients and more mail features.
Proton Unlimited replaces the previous Proton Mail and VPN packages. However, Proton still sells most of its services individually: Mail Plus costs $3.99/month with 15GB of storage and most email features, while Proton VPN Plus is available for $4.99/month. Proton increased VPN prices in May.
