In this paper, we introduce the  probabilistic normed groups. Among other results, we investigate the continuity
of inner automorphisms of a group and the continuity of left and right shifts in probabilistic group-norm. We also
 study midconvex functions defined  on probabilistic normed groups and  give  some results about locally boundedness of such  functions.
