This is a great upgrade to see applied to all free Proton Drive plans (for both new and existing users) and a move which will bring the Proton secure cloud storage service more in line with free offerings from other encrypted providers including Sync.com (with 5GB free), Internxt (with 10GB free), MEGA.IO (with 20GB free) and Tresorit (with 3GB free) amongst various others.

About Proton Drive

For anyone not yet familiar with Proton and their full range of privacy focused cloud services, Proton Drive is a secure cloud storage service built with a focus on providing users with the highest levels of privacy and data security. These high levels of privacy and security are delivered, in-part, thanks to the service itself applying full end-to-end zero-knowledge encryption to all data stored upon it, by default, alongside various other security focused features which are available across all Proton Drive plans (including the now upgraded 5GB free plan).
