'If you want the best option, proton is it. No need to look further. The bad reviews that I am reading are jaw dropping in the
fact that they simply can’t be true. I have been using proton for close to five years now. Both the free and paid options. I

'Developer please read this'

'So this is great vpn it’s working perfectly. But there is one problem when I logout and want to log back in. Some people like
me might forget there username. If you can make an log in with email option that would be fantastic. And that’s what its
preventing from a 5 star review'

'This vpn is best rare cases disconnects. But still best of best money can buy. This vpn always updates and listen to ratings. I

'The best free VPN.'

'ProtonVPN is the best free vpn you can get. They don’t sell user data, they’re reliable, they support IKEv2, UDP, and TCL,
can use TOR network on the free version, and have a great, fairly priced premium version. My only complaint is that speeds can be
slow on the free version, but this is fixe
