    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.

    Pros

    This is a good, fast and easy to use VPN. It also doesn't cache your info.

    Cons

    Netflix denies the IPs and you cannot access Amazon using US servers. Sometimes when your device awakes from sleep or if you loose internet connection for awhile, Nord will hang trying to connect to the server or issue an unknown IP.

    I got a great price for a product and is really easy to setup. I am able to use it on 5 devices so I use it on my PC , phone and tablet. Once I set it up I don't really have any issues with it.

    Cons

    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.

    It's little expensive as compared to other VPNs in market but its efficient which matter the most to me.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    It works perfectly okay, although sometimes it take longer than usual to connect to a server. But as long as it'll keep getting the job done i'll remain a happy customer.

    Pros

    1.- Easy to use, with just one click, it connects you to a new network.
    2.- The connections are very fast and stable.
    3.- It allows you to protect your security and sensitive data, masking your real ip.

    Cons

    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.

    The extra sense of security when transacting with my personal documents and banking transactions. I have also had the benefit of experiencing greater internet speeds, especially on the mobile devices, since it prevents ads from loading up and using the precious bandwidth. Just knowing that there was an additional layer of security between me and a potential hacker outside provides me with an immense sense of relief.

    Pros

    Firstly, its ease of access. Once an account is logged into a device, all it takes is a single click and the software automatically chooses the best server and established an encrypted connection with the device.
    Secondly, Its ad blocking capabilities. I was simply amazed at its ability to block ads in not just the browsers but also the apps, especially for mobile devices. This was especially a life saver for those apps that are over-run by ads.
    Finally, The available speciality options. NordVPN provided me with speciality server access with features like dedicated IP, Double VPN, Onion over VPN and P2P. This is especially handy when I was looking for an extra layer of security to transact with my banks.

    Cons

    Sometimes the application glitches out when used on my android device. i.e., it tries to auto-connect to the closest/best server and for some reason just disconnects and goes back to its original state.
    At these times I will have to manually go in and change the server to a different country for it to be able to establish a connection.

    Pros

    It is great to use NordVPN. When I first download it was very easy to download in device and installation was not really difficult. It is the most popular Vpn provider service and quite easy to get in work. The most interesting thing about this Vpn, we can keep hidden or IP address and it does not keep any kind of logs data in this why our content keep hidden and privacy would also secure. It also provide us many countries servers for connecting and browse very securely.

    Cons

    AS far as I am considered, there is no disadvantage aft this Vpn. But I would like to suggest there is server limitation and the number of servers should be increased for making NordVPN more useful for users. I am satisfied with this secure software. Highly recommended.

    Allowed me to privately browse the internet while I am doing many different things so that I did not have to risk spying.

    Pros

    Nord provides a safe VPN while maintaining good internet speeds all for a great cost. The ability for the internet to remain usable is the main reason I chose Nord many other VPN's fail to not throttle the internet by a lot.

    Cons

    I found the interface of the software to be rather confusing at times, so it took me a while to actually get acquainted with the software. However, once I figured out everything it was rather easy to use.

    Pros

    Nord VPN allows us to manage and protect our location. Because we are often using public wifi at promotional events. It's easy for devices to be compromised. Luckily Nord protects our identity when online.

    Cons

    Has some compatibility issues with Mac which are still unresolved. I've been waiting months for a fix and still none.

    My data and web sessions are kept anonymous.

    Pros

    I chose NordVPN because of all the great reviews I saw online, and after months of using it; I actually agree with all the 5-star reviews. The app has a gorgeous design; both in Windows and Android, the choice of servers is expansive and their pricing is competitive. As someone who doesn't enjoy being tracked by all these online services, this software is a godsend.

    Cons

    The app on my android device has on occasion caused very high battery drains leading me to charge it more times than usual.

    We're able to keep our identity safe online and protect us from infection when using public WIFI Networks when travelling.

    Pros

    Nord is overall very good and easy to use. Find it easy to connect without too much in the way of having to adjust settings. Something other VPN's require to their detriment.

    Cons

    Support is available but there's a few times they don't understand the issue at all or simply give wrong solutions. Also, the software allows you to connect to countries, with regions or cities not indicated. There's a document detailing the regions but it's not intuitive if you need a specific region.

    Cheapest VPN on the market, if you go for 3-year plan. Another thing is that it provides one of the highest level of security for users - no longs and registered in Panama.

    Cons

    Not too fast, but I don't have comparison to other VPN services, so this may not be really an issue. It's normal, that your Internet will be slower when you use VPN.
