ProtonVPN has become the first open source and audited VPN service.
Links to the code repositories and the security audit reports can be found in the company’s announcement blog post.
ProtonVPN is open sourcing 100% of its client code. It is also allowing security experts from around the world to inspect its encryption implementations and how the company handles user data.
Open source software is typically more trustworthy than proprietary software because it can be independently scrutinized.
ProtonVPN also worked with renowned security firm SEC Consult on a full security audit, which verified the security of Proton’s software.
