NordVPN is a personal virtual private network (VPN) service provider. It has desktop applications for Windows and macOS as well as mobile apps for Android and iOS. Manual setup is available for Linux, wireless routers, NAS devices and other platforms.
NordVPN routes all user’s internet traffic through a remote server run by the service, this way hiding the user’s IP address and encrypting all incoming and outgoing data. For encryption, NordVPN uses the OpenVPN and IKEv2/IPsec technologies in its applications, while the L2TP and PPTP protocols can be set up manually.
This tool offers you DNS leak protection, kill switch, double-hop and auto connect that makes it a favorite among its users. It can be used on other devices besides your Windows PC, though it can be slower than other VPNs because of its extra security features.
Here are some of the most notable features:
- Allowing HD streaming without slowing down your connection
- Over 3000 servers at your disposal
- 6 device-usage for 1 license
- Double data protection (passing it through 2 servers)
Moreover, you can test run it for three days before subscribing to one of its plans. It also accepts Bitcoin, has no caps on bandwidth, and comes with comprehensive setup tutorials for any operating system including any Windows version.
