Today, I am checking out one of the biggest players in the VPN market, with over eight million subscribers, NordVPN. In today's review of NordVPN, I'm going to look at the pros and cons, features, run speed, and leak test. Check out the subscription options, customer support, and finally, the mobile application, so that you have all the information you need to make the right decision. Let's start by looking at the pros and cons of NordVPN, beginning with the pros. Well, NordVPN is based in Panama. You also just might want to stream Netflix. NordVPN has one of the most consistent Netflix viewing experiences for VPNs out there.
Finally, it has amazing app ratings from both iPhone and Android users. You should have a pretty solid experience with your mobile device. Let's check out its feature set, beginning with data logging. They're not going to log when you use the VPN, which server you used, what IP address you use, what was your traffic, or even any downloaded files, which is pretty secure, especially when combined with their Panama location.
That's a pretty great policy for data logging in that there is, basically, no policy for retaining any of your information. If we go look at Kill Switch, or also known as a network lock feature, it's also positive in that they have the Kill Switch that makes sure that whatever you're using, be it an app, a browser, you're going to not have your information exposed, if for some reason, your private network connection is lost. If you're browsing using an app, and all of a sudden NordVPN goes out, it also cuts everything out. You're not automatically exposed on that public Internet. That's a great thing to have with NordVPN. Continuing looking at the feature set of NordVPN, let's check out split tunneling. Split tunneling allows you to have part of your information going through the public network and part of it going through the private network.
Unfortunately, NordVPN does not have a split tunneling option. You can either be using NordVPN and running things privately or just be all the way on the public network. There's no way to have any type of bifurcation of bytes going back and forth. When we look at Netflix, however, Netflix is available on the NordVPN. Definitely one of the more consistent VPNs out there for just checking out Netflix. It's definitely a positive element of the NordVPN.
If you sign up for one month in NordVPN, that's going to be $11.99. If you sign up for an entire year, that price goes down $5 a month to $6.99. If you sign up for two years, it goes down to $3.99. For three years, it gets all the way down to $2.99 a month. You see the pattern here. The longer you sign up, the more affordable it will be. When it comes to your manual configurations, you're going to want to make sure you check to make sure it works with the operating system that you prefer. When it comes to supported browsers, I want to go ahead and make it clear that it does not work with Safari.
That's something you want to keep in mind when you're looking at the subscription options for NordVPN. Let's check out customer support with NordVPN. Nord has, of course, an online help center with troubleshooting guides and FAQs to help you figure out what's going on with your system, if you have any questions. What's really rare and impressive about NordVPN when it comes to customer support is they have 24/7 live chat and email. You are really never going to be cut out in the dark with no information regarding their VPN, which is definitely a plus.
We went to check out what other people were saying. Looking at Amazon, for example, it has a out of 5-star rating which is pretty solid.
I LOVE Nord VPN, I believe this is the BEST VPN service provider out there!!!
