Great VPN, easy to use and low maintenance.

Pros

Privacy is a commodity these days, and VPNs help with that. Lots of servers to choose from. Great uptime. No/minimal loss of download speed.

Cons

Some servers will block web services, which can be frustrating, but you can fix it by switching servers.

Overall, very good. It is very easy to use and server is fast enough most of the time. Highly recommended instead of others.

One of the main reasons of getting VPN is to access Netflix in USA and it keeps getting error message.

- Once you switch on the browser plugin, you can forget about it and all your traffic can get tunnelled
- Decent speeds
- Easy to get started with tunnelling browser traffic

Cons

- With Linux you can configure OpenVPN to use NordVPN servers, but it would be nice to have a dedicated app
- Slow, jaggy experience on Firefox plugin
- Usability could be improved, for example not forgetting the username in the browser plugin so soon

It is so easy to use. Mostly just a click of a button for easy connecting. Theres also an option to connect to a specific server. It shows the server load. It works with netflix.

I don't have many cons, I guess more of suggestions. Maybe making an option to auto-switch if a server has a high load?

We often use NordVpn to connect to international servers
I love the fact that we can run the VPN on 6 device at the same time from one account that's awesome
The UI looks good and is really interactive
I like the feature where we can manually select which server do we want to connect to

Cons

I do not see any drawbacks for the vpn
I would wish that whenever we select any particular server to connect it would be great if it connects to the most used or most efficient one

I've been a Nord user for about 3 years and I have never encountered a problem. The number of servers is very good and the speeds are top notch. The desktop and mobile platforms are both excellent and reliable. Also, you can't really find a better price for their quality. Customer service is very prompt in responding.

Cons

There's not much that I can saw that I dislike about it. My only comment would be to add more anonymous payment methods like gift cards, for those type of people who are more privacy conscious.

I use Nord all the time when I am out in public. I use it whenever I connect to public wifi so I know my data is secure and safe from snooping. A VPN in this day and age is a must if you use open wifi networks!

Pros

Nord VPN offers an easy, fast, reliable VPN client. It supports all major OS types. You can have up to 6 devices on the service at a time which makes it a great option for small businesses or families. It's easy to install and easy to use. Sign in once and just click the quick connect button and it finds the closest server to connect to. If you are not a very technical person but want to be secure on public internet connections, NordVPN is a great option.

Cons

Nord VPN is a little spendy but they do offer deals quite often.

I like the security and peace of mind provided by the tool. When using public hotspots I feel a bit more confident to browse sensitive information as long as I am running the VPN tool on my phone or computer.

Pros

It is simple to use and if you pay for the 3 years plan you get a great discount. Perfect value for money.

Cons

I think that some of the servers provided by NordVPN are not fully active or not very fast within the same country. There is always the one or two that become the favourite servers due to the same reason. Nevertheless, you always get at least one fast server on a given country.

* I am able to access my bank application more secured when overseas

Pros

I travel overseas and I was told that if I was to use my bank account it was good to use a VPN tool.

I was advised to try NordVPN as it works on the mobile phone and I am glad I did.

The tool is so easy to use, that I loved it. It is also amazingly cheap in comparison with other devices.

Cons

nothing, I love it!. I was insecured of using the software at the beginning but It ended up resolving a lot of the issues I was having.

Exceedingly positive. I started by trying it out for a month and immediately subscribed for 2 years after that. Their no logs policy is something I wish more VPNs would clearly state their position on. And I loved that you can connect multiple devices at once with one subscription.

Pros

I travel frequently for business. Often to locations where internet access is regulated or limited. So a VPN has always been a must have on my devices (laptop, phone etc). My major concern has been reliability and speed. And Nord delivers on both aspects phenomenally well. I have never had it fail in all the time I have used it so far. And the speed has been largely the same as what I get without the VPN which is remarkable. It is so good that I have often just left it running on even when I would not need a VPN. The support has also been fantastic. I contacted their chat team a couple of times and they have been enormously helpful every single time.

Cons

I would have liked an option to find out where the servers are located, right now its just numbered. They chat team does help you with that information though but I dont see a reason why its just no listed in the software itself.

If you are in the market for an easy to use VPN for multiple devices NordVPN should be at the top of your list.

Pros

NordVPN is one of the easiest VPNs to use and requires almost no setup. Just download the app, create an account, and you're good to go! Easy to log in and use from any internet connected device, and data transmission speeds don't seem to suffer when VPN is active.

Cons

Some apps don't play well with VPNs, especially torrent applications.

It has an idiot-proof interface that makes it simple to grab a local (or not so local) proxy and get running in a matter of seconds. Both on mobile and PC, I frequently switch it on and off for the testing of websites in production.

Cons

Sometimes it'd be nice to have more access to features and to "refresh" a connection if you believe it's timed out, but realistically there are more complex solutions out there for those who want to spend the time and money on them.

Overall it does what it should and I've yet to run into a situation where the VPN connection prevents me from getting work done.

Pros

My favorite feature about NordVPN is the Safe WiFi! There's a peace of mind you get from knowing that while on a public hotspot your connection is secure. I often get work done for clients that requires using an FTP connection to upload files and HTML changes to websites and I'll be at a Starbucks and NordVPN never fails to keep the upload connection secure.

Cons

Being able to remove the NordVPN frame at the top of the browser letting you know you're secure would be nice. Move it to the notification tray letting you know it's running would be preferable.

I did have issues installing it on a Mac OS laptop. The instructions seemed simple but it wasn't working. I took a few tries and I got it to work but i'm not sure what I did different. Was a bit fustrating but once it work I didn't have any issues. The only other anoence but i dont know how to avoid it, is that some websites wont work until you turn off the VPN.

A must have tool when connecting to any public wifi or when data privacy is a concern.

Pros

NordVPN advertises that they do not keep or collect logs of user data. Seemingly so far the connections have seemed secure and safe. Very user-friendly with a straightforward way of learning how to use the software. Wide variety of servers to choose from.

Cons

It seems that that internet speed is hampered more using this VPN than I have noticed with other VPN software.

NordVPN provides fastest servers across the world and its easy to install on PC and mobile, doesn't require tech specialties to setup. Its strong encrypted servers keeps the data transfer secure. Another quality is that its easily affordable.

1.- In my case, the truth is that it was quite difficult to install since first launches the framework installer, which gave me an error I do not know for what reason, and later I was asked to restart the pc. Finally I had to reinstall everything to make it work.
2.- It's quite expensive really.
