Who is eligible for the Black Friday promotion?
Any user who is new to Proton, has a Free plan, or has a Plus plan for only one Proton product can take advantage of this promotion.
What do users get when they upgrade to a two-year Plus plan bundle?
ProtonMail Plus gives users 5 GB of storage and access to premium features. Users can also create extra email addresses and use their own domain. ProtonMail Plus accounts also have full access to ProtonContacts encryption features and ProtonCalendar. ProtonCalendar, which is in beta testing, is the first fully encrypted calendar app. Users can keep track of their plans and appointments while keeping their data private.
ProtonVPN Plus gives users our highest-speed servers in over 50 countries, up to five VPN connections, access to streaming services, P2P/BitTorrent support, access to our Secure Core servers, and other features.
If users upgrade during this promotion, they will also get exclusive access to ProtonDrive, our newest addition to the Proton encrypted ecosystem. ProtonDrive is currently in beta testing with basic functionality that allows users to store photos, documents, and other files with end-to-end encryption. This is perfect for users who want to store sensitive documents securely on the cloud so that they can be accessed on any device.
If someone upgrades to a new plan during Black Friday, what happens to their existing paid plan?
If someone is already a paying ProtonMail or ProtonVPN user and they take advantage of this promotion, the new plan they select will replace their existing plan. We will credit them the unused balance of their existing subscription as a proration credit.
