    An affordable VPN

    Reviewed on 8/8/2021

    It's an excellent VPN and is honest for its price.

    It's an excellent VPN and is honest for its price.

    Pros

    Friendly interface, Kill Switch (it cuts internet when not connected to VPN), 5500 servers worldwide, works in desktop and mobile.
    NordVPN has a very competitive price and frequent updates.
    You'll have split tunneling, which means you can optionally choose which apps use VPN-protected connections.
    Onion over VPN for enhanced privacy and anonymity - that goes slow, of course, but onion goes slow by its structure.
    Some less popular functions are still included, like custom DNS or invisibility on LAN, and there is an option there to block ads and malicious websites.
    I didn't use that last one, but it might be tricky as it is unclear how it works, so I have it disabled.

    Cons

    Russia is out. They have 5500 servers, as they say, but there is not even one in Russia.
    Not everybody needs Russia; however, it's not there.
    Sometimes it's not connecting automatically on computer startup. However, if you have the kill switch enabled, it's not connecting until you enable it manually, so you're protected.
    2- The Split tunneling seems that doesn't work with all apps. For example, I tried to let the signal connect directly but can't. The same problem is with some other apps. But that might not be NordVPN's problem because some 'foxy' apps like WhatsApp are build to bypass VPN and connect directly.
    3 - They had one server hacked for one month. Press was pointing that as a substantial significant deficiency BUT, that isn't a problem at all. First of all, it was just one server out of 5500 servers which is equal to nothing.
    And - in the end, the majority of sites already have HTTPS, so what a hacker might see is, the IP [whatever] - is connected to [Amazon].
    There is no sensitive information to be leaked.

    Pros

    Easy to use. Can install on multiple computers. Good customer support. Updated regularly.

    Cons

    It can cost more than other VPN services but its speed and choice don’t make this a big negative in my opinion.

    NordVPN leaves their customer out to dry

    In a word, my experience with NordVPN can be summarized as:

    - A company that values profits and policy over people.

    Pros

    I'd have to say that NordVPN's brazen commitment to alienating their customer base is something to be admired. It's an odd way to show people that you care. Well, it's actually not a way to show people you care at all, but hey, you gotta respect a company bold enough to stand up to their own customers, right?

    I especially respect [SENSITIVE CONTENT] at NordVPN.

    I signed up for NordLayer because I'm trying to bootstrap a product idea. My development agency referred me to NordVPN because they thought I was going to need a VPN service. I purchased NordVPN for $61, but we had to put the project on pause because the developers were working on a feature that needed to be completed before we could set up the VPN.

    Once it was time to revisit the VPN, the team and I decided that we could go a different route in the short-term, so we wanted to finish building more of the product before we layer the VPN in.

    I reached out to NordVPN because I was a few days past the 14-day trial, and I asked if I could get refunded. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] responded telling me that the company does not wish to refund me due to the fact that their policy states that I was supposed to cancel in the 14-day window.

    In the technical sense, [SENSITIVE CONTENT] is correct, but he showed no sign of reason and no empathy as a customer service representative. It was my intention to return business as soon as I was ready to re-start the service, but this didn't appeal to [SENSITIVE CONTENT].

    Cons

    Hmm, that's a tough one. There was so much to like about my interaction with [SENSITIVE CONTENT] that I don't even know where to begin. I mean, there's just so much to like about a company that shows no mercy, it's almost hard to find any flaws with NordVPN.

    - Their ability to re-quote a cancellation policy is impeccable.

    - Their commitment to winning me as a long-term user and loyal advocate for the business... genuinely heartfelt.

    - Their ability to listen to customers? Flawless.

    - The warmth and ability to make customers feel valued and "not just another number to squeeze profits out of," remarkable.

    [SENSITIVE CONTENT] is the man! Thanks [SENSITIVE CONTENT] Can't say enough about this company, and it's all because of the way you re-quoted that cancellation policy so that I could re-read it one more time. You freaking rock!

    I've been using NordVPN for about 2 years and I'm very satisfied, it's a very powerful VPN. I've tried other VPNs but they didn't perform as well. NordVPN is undoubtedly the best VPN to use to stay protected. I recommend it 200%.

    Pros

    It's very safe
    Does not cause conflicts in the Windows system
    It has many country solutions to use as a VPN
    VPN speed is very fast in most countries.

    Cons

    I think it should improve the quality of speed in some countries.
