NordVPN is a cloud-based virtual private network (VPN) that helps users to securely access internet over their Windows, Mac and Linux devices. It also offers mobile apps for Android and iOS devices to secure internet traffic on the go.

NordVPN encrypts incoming and outgoing traffic to ensure confidentiality of the information. It supports military-grade encryption to secure the flow and exchange of information. Its CyberSec feature shields devices from malicious activities and online threats.

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.

Very fast browsing experience without compromising internet security, something that is not offered by many others. Covers all the essentials and does it extremely well at the cost .

I've tried several VPN's and this is hands down the best value for money available. Based on my use, there are no negatives.

Pros

- 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

Pros

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.

Cons

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?

I like privacy when I surf the net. I hate being plagued by ads and this software gives me just that.

Pros

NordVPN is easy to install and use. Just a few clicks and you're up and running. Gone are the days of difficult and lengthy setups. This product is fully automated (yet flexible), making it one of the easiest I have used.

Cons

I have to configure my router because when I use NordVPN, everything else goes offline. As this is not addressed in the setup, you need to do some research to figure out how to do this.

Pros

It is fast, we don't need to reconnect it repeatedly. Changes locations and servers immediately and it gives choice of choosing server yourself.

Cons

More countries can be added and introducing a feature detecting warning about spam websites can improve the product to a great extent, otherwise it's a great VPN.

Privacy, protection, and peace of mind. It's so easy to use and is almost a required but if software for anyone connected to the internet.

Pros

It's very easy to use. Almost set it and forget it. You can automate it to come in when your computer is turned on and automatically connect to an access point or you can leave it manual. If you are not getting speeds you'd like to see you can very easily select new access point and attempt to get a better connection. If you have sensitive information to protect on your PC but are not hacker level savvy then you should just get NordVPN.

Cons

Honestly, nothing. There are cheaper options out there but I always seem to find a discount when it's time to renew.

NordVPN is one of the few VPNs that successfully bypasses Netflix's VPN block. Cheers

Pros

Doesn't keep any logs or records and Nod simply works there where you want it the most. Never faced any issues while connecting VPN.

Cons

Bit expensive, but it doesn't matter because it provides the best service in its class. No compromise at all.

NordVPN has a great interface, awesome support across multiple devices, and doesn't have the same service restrictions that a lot of other services have. It's also insanely affordable, especially for the added security it provides. Also I get the fastest speeds when using this product.

Cons

During peak hours or times when there are a lot of users, some of the servers closer to my location become difficult to connect to. But I can easily choose another server, so it's not really a big deal.

Pros

There is a relatively fast VPN connection giving me amn extra sense of security. The softyware is relatively unintrusive and the interface is clear and simple.

Cons

The software often does not make a connection in itself despite having this turned on in settings. I have noticed that in some cases the VPN does not connect without warning me. Customer service is slow and only uses e-mail. They tend to not read or understand the emails.
