Overview

NordVPN is based in Panama but has a globally accessible service with customers in many different countries. As well as being one of the most security-conscious VPN providers on the market, its services benefit from allowing full use of P2P file-sharing platforms of all kinds.

The app also offers a SmartPlay feature which allows users to experience better streaming and access major streaming platforms across the world.

Customers can also connect up to six different devices at the same time as part of a standard package, which provides lots of scope for protected connectivity on desktop PCs as well as mobile devices without additional costs. And with a 30-day money-back guarantee, which is significantly longer than those offered by some other providers, customers can sign up without taking any risks and see if NordVPN meets their expectations.

What we like

  • SmartPlay feature to access major streaming platforms
  • 24/7 customer support available via Live Chat
  • Based in Panama so not subject to US Data Retention or EU DRD laws
  • 6 simultaneous connections with every package

What we don't like

  • No refunds on Bitcoin purchases

Speed

Speed is a crucial factor of how good a VPN is and to keep our users informed on how fast NordVPN is across countries, we regularly carry out speed tests.

Australia Brazil China France Germany Mexico United Kingdom USA
Download (Mbps) 40.5 17.4 N/A 36.09 42 21.5 39.7 46.7
Upload (Mbps) 10 9.5 N/A 11.8 10.7 9.5 20.66 36

Privacy

As with all good anonymous VPN services, NordVPN does not log user activity in any form. So any external requests for usage data cannot be fulfilled, and user privacy is entirely assured. But its attention to detail when it comes to security goes even further, since it deploys Double VPN technology to effectively encrypt data twice. No other provider on the market at the moment can match this, although it is worth noting that this can lead to some speed inconsistencies because of the additional protections involved in achieving total privacy and anonymity. Payment can also be kept anonymous, since as well as accepting most credit cards, NordVPN’s services can also be purchased via Bitcoin, PayPal and more.

For added security and privacy, NordVPN has a Kill Switch feature which blocks all traffic to your device when your VPN connection drops. You can enable/disable this feature in the Settings tab.


Servers

NordVPN operates a network that includes 720+ servers spanning over 55 countries around the world. So it is suitable for accessing geographically restricted streaming content and sites in places such as the US and the UK as well as a range of other nations across Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Customers can choose to use a shared IP which is selected at random and changes whenever a new connection is established. Alternatively, a dedicated IP is available if required, and a list of 3000+ free proxies is also available for customers to harness if they wish.
