In this age of technological advancement, what some fear the most for, is their privacy. With so many corporations and governments out there eyeing for your particulars, what guarantee is there that when you are surfing the web, someone else is not surfing your computer?
In hindsight, each and every VPN provider promises some form of virtual security, but NordVPN makes that its mission, and actually delivers on its promise.
- What nordVPN is most famous for, is its tight security, and it lives up to its claims by providing “Double data encryption”. Some believe this to be just a gimmick, as there is no way to either confirm or deny this, I’m going with the assumption that it does what it says, which is that unlike normal VPN’s, it encrypts the data twice, making it harder for anyone to actually use it even they somehow get their hands on it.
- NordVPN UK boasts 781 servers worldwide, in about 57 different countries, giving you an exceptionally large database to choose from.
- Automatic kill switch! Which means if the app crashes during usage, it will automatically kill some of the sites specified in advance. You never know when an app might crash, and this little feature prevents any information from leaking out.
- As seen with many other VPN providers, strict no logs policy is implemented.
- NordVPN free trial lasts for 3 days, so you can check everything before actually committing, along with a 30-day money back guarantee just for a little something extra.
- 2048-bit SSL Encryption is provided, which is actually much more impressive than it sounds.
- Supports up to 6 devices simultaneously.
- Since it does not limit P2P traffic, it’s absolutely great for anyone who downloads torrents frequently.
- Has its own DNS servers, located in the Panama region, so rest assured, it won’t be easy for any agencies like the NSA perhaps, to get their grubby little hands on your data.
- Accepts bitcoin so you can actually buy AND use the software with complete anonymity.
- Has some great packages with up to 72% off on some of them!
- They provide full step-by-step guides on how to set up, starting from the nordVPN download.
- With some extra features like encrypted chat and the proxy extension, it’s more of an entire package rather than just a simple VPN.
- Extremely simple to use, just requires a nordVPN login and off you go on your exploration of the wonder that is the “interweb”.
- Is offered on all the major platforms, including IOS and android.
- Some of the servers tend to be quite slow.
- Ad trackers are not blocked.
