About NordVPN

NordVPN is the fastest VPN on the planet and a leader in online security.
What is a VPN? VPN stands for virtual private network — it’s a tool that protects your online activity by encrypting your traffic and changing your virtual location and IP address.

How does VPN work?

When using a VPN, you route all your internet traffic through a remote server. Here’s how it works in detail. When you connect to a VPN server, it applies an encryption protocol to all the data you send and receive. It creates a secure tunnel for your data to travel between you and its destination. To make sure each data packet is secure, a VPN wraps it in another, outer packet and then encrypts it through encapsulation. That’s how the VPN tunnel keeps your data safe during transfer. When the data arrives at the server, the outer packet is decrypted.

A VPN’s workings are complex, but using a VPN isn’t. You don’t need to be tech-savvy to use NordVPN — simply open the app, click Quick Connect, and you’re done!

You can use NordVPN on 6 devices at the same time on every major platform: Android, Windows, macOS, iOS, and Linux. Choose from 5,000 servers in 59 countries and enjoy online safety!
