Deprecation warning

This Version of ProtonVPN-CLI has been deprecated and is no longer maintained by the ProtonVPN Team.

It is superseded by Version 2. Due to the new version being written in Python, you can't update it with the --update option. The new version needs to be installed manually. For installation instructions, please visit the project page at

Note: To disable the deprecation warning in the program, create a file called deprecation_warning in the ~/.protonvpn-cli configuration folder.
