NordVPN provides fully secured mask transmission of VPN services.

Pros

NordVPN consists of several of servers to choose. Almost servers for every country and their respective regions are available. We can also favorite our servers and then they'll appear in a different row so that we can choose them another time quite quickly and saves lots of time and effort. Their customer service is highly reliable and they highly entertain any issues of the customers. The service is secured and fully encrypted with additional benefits like Double VPN .

Cons

I have been using Nord for quite a time and it has helped in lot in several purposes. I have experienced that whenever I log in my desktop , I have to re-enter the account details again. This way it took me quite time to setup things. Another thing is that few of the servers disappears from the list and this way our work is quite disturbed.

Could use improvements but I feel safe using it

Pros

Definitely feel secure when using it. Lots of different options of which locations to use.

Cons

The Mac app could definitely use improvement. Several bugs, quick connect doesn't always work, app window itself is kinda weird, especially when changing settings on whether to show window or not.

Overloaded servers can be an issue

I would use it, it may not be the best one out there but for the price if you disable webrtc and you aren't on it 24/7 it's a good product overall.

Pros

The price is very good for NordVPN if you buy a few years at a time. The software has alot of servers and locations to choose from. Both the Linux and the windows and mac sides of the software are easy to setup and use. I use it alot when I go to Japan or overseas for travel and it's been quite nice.

Cons

Some servers are mislisted to the country and so you choose country and it really comes out of another. The other thing is their software connects you to alot of overloaded slow servers so it's best to manually choose which one you want to connect too.

Nord provides efficient and reliable VPN service with 24/7 customer service support.

NordVPN has proven to be quite useful for me in my professional as well as day to day life. As a branch manager , we always have to be careful in order to target the customers for promotional schemes or retrieving data from multiple sites. This VPN helps us in focusing more on that specific region either its national or international region.

Pros

NordVPN subscription is one of the most budget friendly and we can chose from multiple packages that suits best to our working demands. Countless servers to choose from and the accessibility of favorite the servers for on repeat use is also very convenient. The dedicated servers as well as the double VPN provides a quite reliable service. The perk of using Nord is that their customer service is very supportive and always ready for any kind of help.

Cons

I've used NordVPN quite often and their service is quite reliable. The only few glitches is that some of the servers that I favorite either disappears from the lists or either they're occupied mostly.

Safe and Secure and Seamless

I'm proud to remember to have a VPN running when I'm on a public wifi network. The pricing is great and so is its ease of use so I am happy to renew my annual subscription when the time comes. By the way, this product is excellent for frequent flyers since the company has servers all over the world and your connection is always secured on airport wifi.

Pros

NordVPN makes it very easy to connect to the Internet securely. The quick connect button makes the choice for you to enjoy the quickest encrypted connection. The Internet kill switch is a great feature to ensure that your traffic is always encrypted and not suddenly unsecured when a vpn connection drops out. The pricing is great. The availability on many phone and computer OSes is great. It's all very much great.

Cons

It takes a little while for the app and desktop client to load, but that's just a matter of patience. The company claims that there is a strict no logs policy. I haven't researched if that claim has been validated by a third-party entity or if the users are just supposed to believe that. Many people have recommended this VPN product and I am still very much in support of this product, but the validity of the strict no logs policy is interesting to me and not worrisome. The most annoying thing is when I'm trying to access a website (especially Amazon) and I'm unsuccessful in connecting to it because the website won't allow me to browse anonymously since it recognizes that the internet traffic coming in stems from a VPN server. Maybe it's just a matter of trying another server that the website doesn't have on its blacklist.

A Leader in the Field

Pros

It is SO incredibly easy to use. The software is super quick. Setting up the account for me was the best part because I wasn't sure how to use it at first so I hopped on a call with support who got on right away and walked me through it.

Cons

I'm reaching here for a con, but sometimes it takes a little bit longer to connect than normal. That's it though.

The Gold Standard

I've achieved comfort and security while browsing online, with many layers of security.

Pros

NordVPN is simple to set up and use, and has a very user-friendly interface. You can choose from multiple countries/cities, which can be of great benefit depending on region-specific access you may require.
The price is very reasonable, and you definitely get bang for your buck. There are also specialty servers (which I personally do not use, but if you're into that, it's something I have not seen with other VPNs).
Another fantastic feature of NordVPN is a "killswitch" feature, which will block internet access if you lose the VPN connection for whatever reason (which is huge in terms of privacy, and can make all the difference in that split second).

Cons

Can't really think of any cons. It's cheap, effective, easy to use, and has amazing bonus features.

Effective and efficient

It's fair enough to say. Because the app is useful and strong. And help me to achieve my purpose when the app is on the connection is slow. The server needs to be optimize l. Though I enjoyed it..

Pros

The Nord application is very useful and great vpn to buy or subscribe for. It's well function good technical support.

Cons

Concerned the price monthly billing is very costly sorry to say though it worth it. Also it's difficult to get back details of login if one log out. The login details clear after logging out.

Browse Fast and Secure

Overall it's reliable, economical and works great.

Pros

Nord VPN is very easy to setup, and it's easy to switch between servers. If one is being slow, I can easily to switch to another one. The feature i like the most is that it works with Netflix, and i can watch the content from Europe and across the world.

Cons

I use this VPN for Netflix and it works perfectly okay, but sometimes servers are very slow and effect on streaming. Switching the servers solves the problem but there should be a feature that Nord should automatically switch the servers considering the ping.

Safe and Easy To Use

In all, NordVPN is cool. It is one of the best and secured VPN outthered

Pros

There are hundreds of VPN in the market but Nord is undeniably popular and it must be linked to the fact that it is reliable and secure. You don't have to watch your shoulder when using the internet, you can rely on the encription service Nord provides. Anothet thing is that it is easy to use. Setting up is quite easy and if there is a challenge, one could watch tutorial videoa

Cons

As great as the VPN is, there is no customer service. No matter how legitimate your claims may be, you will need to fix it yourself. This is not good enough for premium service

The best and secure VPN

It is widely used software. I have great experience with it. What I think after using this service that, I have made best choice.

Pros

NordVPN is one of the best VPN ever. I use this vpn for online video streaming and happy with its services. It has proved that there is no as great product as it is.

If I talk about the price of this vpn, that is affordable for every user of Nord.

Cons

It is hard to find any kind of con about NordVPN because it works well. I am satisfied with its all services. The great thing about Nord is, it is secure vpn and works efficiently.

The best VPN software in the market.

It saves us from the massive invasion in advertising that is generated by the navigation data. The connection is fast enough and we have more freedom in the network.

Pros

Excellent encryption system to navigate anonymously through its wide variety of servers around the world. Very good to see blocked content and Streaming companies.

Cons

Problems in the payment gateway and its automated system. NordVPN blocks its payment methods automatically on the first failure.
