About NordVPN

NordVPN is the world’s leading VPN provider protecting millions of internet users every day. We employ next-generation tech solutions to make sure our users enjoy online safety with peace of mind.

What is a VPN and how does it work?
A virtual private network (VPN) encrypts online traffic and enhances privacy by changing the IP address and virtual location. It does so by routing all your internet traffic through a remote server. NordVPN offers over 5,000 servers in 59 countries. It’s especially important to have VPN protection when you connect to public Wi-Fi. Public hotspots are inherently unsafe — cybercriminals can easily compromise them or set up fake hotspots to lure unsuspecting victims. You should always use NordVPN before connecting to public Wi-Fi.

NordVPN is available on every major platform. You can use NordVPN on your laptop (Windows, macOS apps) or download it on your phone (Android, iOS apps). There’s also a NordVPN app for Android TV and Linux, while the lightweight extensions for Chrome and Firefox can secure your browsing in an instant.
