Safety for biz travelers

Pros

I travel frequently & rely on wifi hotspots. Nord VPN keeps my data safe when I am on the go & provides options that others dont.

Cons

NordVPN has dropped coverage while browsing & not alerted me. That is unacceptable

Protection via VPN at it's finest!

Pros

Probably the easiest VPN to use and setup. I found that you can get a great value for your $ with this VPN service especially when they offer amazing deals all the time. Simple to install and use.

Cons

At times I did find it to be super slow but I realized it was due to my internet dropping speed and not because the VPN was on.

Privacy at its best

Pros

NordVPN offers affordable prices for anyone concerned about Internet privacy. Depending on the length of your contratct, you get better pricing overall. The no-logs policy is a great plus and there are numerous servers in various geographical locations to accomodate most needs. You can use it across devices and even set it up at a router level to encrypt the traffice for the whole network.

Cons

There are no cons on the functionality NordVPN offers. However, it is a bit more expensive than other options in the market, but the benefits are well worh the price.

Excellent VPN for beginners who want privacy.

Pros

The all included one button push set up makes NordVPN the leading VPN software for most people.

Cons

Those who want to have a little more control over their privacy features won't like the ease and one button push that NordVPN provides.

Best VPN Program Ever

NordVPN is KING of VPNs

Pros

Its super simple straight to the point. You can tunnel to any country and its instant. It doesn't take 2 minutes to configure like other software. It also has an app for your phone which makes security great. I love how inexpensive it is. I was able to pay for 2 years for about 60 bucks. What a steal. I highly recommend this program for anyone that is trying to have their info secure and encrypted when browsing the web especially with IPs now selling your information.

Cons

The is nothing I don't like about this program.

NordVPN protects without having expense firewalls

Pros

NordVPN lets me log into to the office and access files on a shared drive.

It also allows me to keep up with latest TV programmes when I am out of the country as I appear as if I am in Sweden.

Cons

Sometimes especially in the evenings I have to reconnect it because their servers are busy.

NordVPN - What I love

My overall experience with NordVPN has been very good, I use it everyday for security and anonymity purposes and it has never let me down. I strongly recommend the use of NordVPN and its is worth what you pay.

Pros

I love how easy it is to connect on my phone or computer. It is basically one click to connect to servers almost anywhere in the world. The range of servers in each country is great as it eliminates the problem of server overload. The features such as onion over VPN and dedicated IP are great for security and anonymity whilst searching the web.

Cons

Sometimes after selecting a server to connect to it would take quite a long amount of time or not connect at all. There was an easy fix to this which was just restart the application which doesn't take long at all.

One of the Best

Pros

NordVPN even though the name suggests they're based in Norway they are based in Panama. Panama has a completely uncensored internet and zero government surveillance. They never keep logs and it has a very easy to use and very pleasing to look at UI. Many servers for anywhere around the globe. If you're thinking about getting NordVPN in the US you even have more choices. You have speciality servers, you have double VPN servers, Onion over VPn Servers, Deticated VPns, and P2P VPNs.

Cons

The auto connect function is pretty hard to select a server that has a low usage percentage and also is close to me. The windows application has the most functionality, it has the most customization options. For mobile and Mac users there is little options to customize but it still is a great VPN for the average consumer who wants a clean, good, and secure VPN service.

NORDVPN works!

Pros

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

Cons

None. I love it. It's simple, fast, reliable and I have nothing negative to say about it.

A must-have for privacy, offering speed and a wealth of servers at an unbeatable price

Pros

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.

A reliable, fast VPN!

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.

Value for money VPN

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.

Best VPN Tool ever!

* 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.

The best VPN you can get right now.

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.
