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.

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.

- 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

NordVPN is perfect software in order to protect our privacy online. My overall experience with it is amazing.

Pros

NordVPN is one of the most popular VPNs available in the market. It provides great services. Whenever I use it, I feel like it has powerful functionalities. One thing that I like most about this VPN is that it provides bundle of servers and allows us to connect with them anytime. I have not encountered any kind of crowd of users occur anytime when I use. It works smarter than other VPNs does.

Cons

I have been using NordVPN for several years and I have also had experience of other VPNs but this NordVPN provides quality services. One issue that I face is that sometimes when after connecting to the server it reconnects connection and this way it makes distortion in internet. It does not happen always but rarely. Otherwise I am a contented user of this VPN and believe that it has a secure solution.

We are traveling so much and NordVPN is highly recommended to use in order to get faster and safety connection.

Pros

- It got very good at security and privacy as it is located in Panama, which has no data retention or complicated law.
- The friendly user interface, even the beginner can easily set up without any support.
- Working well with almost flatform, such as Windows, Android (just have a little bit different on iOS)
- High-speed performance and has servers in more than 60 countries

Cons

- Just one consideration the speed and stability when I use NordVPN in China.

I use Nord Vpn for my ebay account. There are sometimes I need to bid and buy a product from a specific county, using Nord Vpn to change my location to the country has been easy for me. The price isn't too bulky and the connections are fast

Pros

What I like most about Nord Vpn is that it connect very fast. Select of your preferred region is so easy to go by. It has never for once automatically disconnected while been used and it doesn't log me out automatically like most of my Vpn

Cons

Please, I will be happy if you can solve the issue of anonymity. Ever since have been using Nord Vpn, my anonymity has never been up to 100%, there are sometimes it do leak out my real IP. Also, solve the issue of first time loading of the app, it takes long

Overall I really enjoy using NordVPN, knowing all my traffic is safe for hackers or companies. I use it personally aswell as in my job cause I work with personal data sometimes and when I'm using NordVPN I can be assured that no data will get leaked (which is very important when working with personal data).

Pros

This is one of the first VPN's I used that has such a clear interface and it's almost impossible to not know how to use it, just open the app and connect to the country you want and it's done. Connection speed is also not an issue, pages load as fast as they would without the VPN.

Cons

Some websites give me errors when using NordVPN, where I can't make a stable connection and it says I can't load it over a proxy.

Often we have to get the biodata of different organizations in competing where direct access is not possible . So , we introduce VPN there to access any remote location and get the relevant info.

Pros

NordVPN is known to be the most high--performing tool which is most reliable for the usage of the VPN. Within lots of accessible locations and highly concentrated and efficient location service is what makes Nord the best of all. It's yearly pricing packages are also very economical and suits best to the budget. Also, static ip's can easily be implement to produce more and more efficiency in work.

Cons

NordVPN sometimes shows errors while logging into the account and also various glitches have been observed during the long and continuous use.

Really excellent. They usually have a promotion to get a multiple year deal. This is often the most economical way to get the service over the long term.

Pros

NordVPN is very easy to use software to protect your privacy online. Once installed you can easily encrypt all your online traffic via a variety of different servers in different countries and different protocols (Double VPN, Onion over VPN). You know that once enabled none of your traffic will be tracked by the network you are on or somebody trying to sniff your logins/passwords on unencypted public wifi. Note - if you are using google services even in incognito a lot of what you are doing can still be tracked via your log in/hardware id. So if you really need privacy remember to sign out of these accounts and use tools like Tor Browser to not be tracked.

You can install on a variety of devices (computer, tablet, smartphone) with one account and know that when you are using a free wifi service (e.g. hotel, airtport, coffee shop) all your communication is secure. You can also circumvent geoblocking if you want to watch your TV services in your home country but that may not be accessible if you are travelling in another country.

Cons

Routing thru an additional VPN layer can slow down connections, but most servers are fast, and if you get on a slow one you can easily switch to another server/country to try and get faster service.

Initial connection on PC can be a bit slow (20-25 secs). Not sure why. iPhone app connects within seconds to VPN server (5 secs).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
