Still looking for the best VPN service, NordVPN is the end of your search

While surfing unprotected internet have you ever thought of how much of your data are you giving up online putting your privacy at compromise. With big organizations ready to take advantage of your data it might be the right time for you to switch for a VPN (virtual private network) service which will provide you complete control of your identity online and will provide you anonymity.

Why use a VPN and what exactly is it?

When you use a VPN service it creates an encrypted tunnel between you and VPN operated remote server, which keeps your data out of the reach of entities that want to spy on you and also you will have the IP address of the VPN server.

We recently reviewed NordVPN, and it was the best VPN service we have ever used.

NordVPN review

We recently spent some time using NordVPN, a Panama based VPN service provider, which has been gaining huge popularity and receiving several accolades from the experts. NordVPN currently has its servers located in 61 countries with over 3500 servers located in these locations. We reviewed the VPN on Android and Windows, but it also operates on MacOS, Linux and as an iOS mobile app.

Beside this NordVPN is also available as web browser extensions for Chrome and FireFox. Browser extensions can provide you a secure connection in a matter of click and it actually works to please the user.

One thing to notice here is that NordVPN is registered in Panama and there is no law there for Data Retention, so the company follows a ‘no data logging’ approach. So you can be quite sure that your online activity cannot be traced back and that is the first most priority when using a VPN service. Also, it uses military-grade encryption techniques (OpenVPN, IKEv2/IPsec protocols).

User Interface

NordVPN provides an amazing user interface with the first screen you will be landed on will give you the option to choose between the locations to where you want to connect. A world map will be shown which will provide the locations where the servers are available. You can also search for the specific countries where you want to connect.

There is also a ‘Quick Connect’ feature that will automatically connect you to the fastest server available for you. Just click that lightning button and you will be connected in a matter of seconds.

When you will head over the settings you see a few prominent settings such as CyberSec suite which actually blocks ads as we noticed and they claimed that it will block malware also, which is bonus feature with the VPN services. Then there is an option to connect to Obfuscated Servers which will let you bypass country-specific restrictions blocking VPN services, because of this it can be used even in China and Middle East countries.

You can also enable the option to connect to the VPN on the startup. There is also a feature Internet Kill Switch and App kill switch through which you will be able to access that apps only when connected to VPN.

Prominent Features

There are a variety of features that it offers that make NordVPN stand out from the rest of VPN providers. It provides a dedicated P2P server that will help you transfer files and torrents without any worries.

Double VPN servers are another great feature. It will route you through two servers to provide more anonymity.

Other prominent features are Anti-DDoS service which provides more stable connection, and also Dedicated IP where you will get IPs that only you will use, we also got to know that Dedicated IPs are only available in Germany, Netherlands, US, and the UK.

Also if you want to access the TOR network NordVPN also provides Onion Over VPN servers, your network will be automatically configured and you will able to access TOR network.

Performance

Overall the NordVPN performed exceptionally well, during speed test results the download and upload speed did reduce a bit but we were able to stream full HD videos without any buffering. Thanks to the super-fast servers.

NordVPN provides the unlimited bandwidth transfer, so you don’t need to worry about your data usage over VPN. Something that makes it a classy deal is that you can have up to 6 simultaneous connections.
