    Even if their were, proton company would have been legally required to trace their connection through proton VPN. Using tor would have been the better move.

    EDIT: apparently swiss laws exempt VPNs from these sorts of legal issues.

      Would they? According to their recent blogpost about the controversy:

      1. Under current Swiss law, email and VPN are treated differently, and ProtonVPN cannot be compelled to log user data.

      …just pasting their claims. If this is true, using a Swiss based, no-logging VPN would be enough to avoid your IP being revealed
