Fast and seems to be secure 5/5
I just wanted something to keep my browsing when traveling safe. I am really surprised how fast most of the servers I connect to are. Happy so far with about a week of use.
Easy and intuitive 5/5

Great app, very easy and intuitive.
Great Service 4/5
I find NordVPN a great service. I researched long and hard to see if there were any definite winners, and there were not. I think the biggest problem is potential conflicts of interest with the various reviewers. Still NordVPN seemed to come out at or near the top in most of the reviews, so with that I decided to give them a try. This is my first try at a VPN service, as such, so I am far from an expert in his area.
I was looking for basically three things 1)ease of use, 2) security , and 3) speed. With NVPN I have been very pleased with all three, but there is a little room for improvement. This could easily be a stellar 5 Star service if they tweaked their client apps a bit.
I have a 60 Mbps Internet service. My normal worst case is to drop to 20 Mbps. This sounds terrible, but it is not as bad as it sounds IMO. By switching to a different lightly loaded server, however, my speed only drops to around 55-58 Mbps which is basically imperceptible. Some of NVPN’s client apps make it easy to locate and select a nearby lightly loaded server and others don’t. It is important to seek out a good server if you are getting a real performance hit, so if NVPN would build this manual capability into their clients, through filtering etc, they would be exceptional and definitely 5 Star.
Good vpn 5/5
Very good 5/5
Works on PC, Not well on Apple products 2/5
By Pensacola DL
Seems to work well, connect fast (upon startup and from pc sleep state). Does not work well on any of my Apple products (iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro). As I’ve seen now in a few reviews (which I should have read prior to purchasing), this app has issues with Apple products.
My issues is same as others I’ve recently read, it takes 50-60+ seconds to connect (or actually work) upon iPhone/iPad wake up (from temp minute or overnight sleep, same results) which makes the iCloud auto backup overnight and any emails or other apps that upload data while iPhone/ iPad is inactive at night making the data being transferred insecure defeating the purpose of having the secure vpn.
Worked with support on this issue multiple times and was advised to ensure kill switch was enabled so no internet traffic will occur insecurely.
Unfortunately if the app is not working properly, the kill switch does not work hence allowing data to flow as normal without secure vpn.
Additionally I’ve reset network settings as support requested to ensure no other profiles/settings are interfering which still did not resolve issue but it did help and the app now works about 50% more of the time. Support eventually said its an Apple thing that they have no control over how the Apple IOS works.
I Am past my 30 day refund period so stuck with the subscription (2 year promo I purchased) in hopes they figure out a solution as they came highly recommended.
Currently trying another vpn which has so far (2 months) worked flawlessly.
Great app very easy to use but could use more features 4/5
I’m not sure the dns leak and killswitch is working all the time I’ve been able to access the internet while the vpn connects. Also it would be nice if cybersec worked on iOS.
More Security is Always Better! 5/5
Feel safer using VPN, but hate that certain vendors make you turn it off if you want to use their app. Not cool. Prime Amazon is one of them. Xfinity is NOT, thankfully. All in all, I highly recommend NordVPN. Good price, easy to use.
Very stable 5/5
I like this app. I feel free to surf anything
Very goof tool. Thanks
Great app 5/5
I love this app. I wish I had gotten a vpn before now and nordvpn does everything.
Best VPN so far! Versatility and with kill switch option. 5/5
Best I’ve seen, so far, for a Apple application.
Great vpn service 5/5
I love NordVPN app. It’s so easy to use, connects in seconds. I’ve purchased service for three years, so it better stays this way! ;)
Excellent, secure and great support 5/5
Excellent and secure!
Nord VPN works as advertised 5/5
I have been using this service across all my devices. Not noticing any slowdown online. Nord VPN seems to be operating exactly as advertised.
Works great 5/5
This app has been absolutely trouble free
NordVPN - a doorway to privacy 5/5
I’ve been using NordVPN for about 2 weeks now, and the peace of mind that it brings is very welcome. On vacation at the moment, staying in a hotel with “free” WiFi that’s not secured at all, with ANY protocol, but I can connect to my banking sites, make purchases online, all with an encrypted, secured connection. Man-in-the-middle be damned!...
Easy to use, giving you the ability to either quick connect to the closest, least loaded server, or giving you the opportunity to choose a server from the list in whatever country you choose to “be” in. So far I have not noticed any impact on the speed of my connection. I would recommend NordVPN for anyone who travels or uses private WiFi out of necessity. It uses OpenVPN by default, too, which is excellent!
Works seamlessly across MacOS and iOS 5/5
Simple to install, works well... tested on several “what’s your ip” sites.
The killswitch is indispensable if you’re constantly on the go in various untrusted networks.
Totally worth it! 5/5
By Matheus H.
Best security investment ever!
Don't waste your money 1/5
I bought this service because of the good reviews it has, so I decided to buy a 3 year subscription since it was a good deal. Big mistake. Very low performance. I have an iPhone x 254 gb verizon network and my internet speeds are around 50 to 70 mbps. When u connect via NordVpn my speed are around 5 mbps if that. It doesn't matter which server I connect to. When I'm at home I have optimum 300 mbps internet speed for download andc35 mbps for upload. If I connect via the NordVpn app in my iPhone I'm lucky if I get 15mbps download speed. Now I have a very good Router( Asus RT-AC5300). I configured my router using the client set-up and open vpn configuration so thisway all my devices can benefit from NordVpn service. But the speed hit is so bad that I can't use it. My xbox, PS4 and all my devices come to a crawl, so slow that is not possible to do anything. Stay away.
Great app and service 5/5
By Quacks like a duck
No issues downloading, installing and using. Have already recommended to others. Works as described! Thanks for the security.
Best VPN I’ve tried 5/5
The VPN connects quickly, and the connection is super stable. So far it doesn’t appear to have too many sites that block it. Very happy with NordVPN so far.
Excellent protection!! 5/5
By Gaming Patty
Glad we have this in today’s world!!!
Do not buy !!! 1/5
This app does not work, it also shuts down ur WiFi and internet paid 68dollars for this !!!!!!
Not a lot of options 1/5
Decent service... that is, if you can get the terrible app to connect. Complete dearth of any user-customizable options to alter the way the app connects or behaves in any way, shape, or form. I guess they assume all of their users are tech-illiterate geriatrics? What is this garbage? NordVPN—anonymity for idiots!
Great choice... 5/5
This made my trip...perfect! Great choice!
Reliable even for the UK! 5/5
Works except foreign Netflix
Nord VPN 5/5
Good performance 5/5
VPN advantages are for you to decide. However with some VPN, the problem can be performance. NordVPN definitely has great performance.
Love it 5/5

Love it. 5/5
Love it, but..... 4/5
By Pho Lyfe
How come the Iphone version doesn’t have double VPN connection? Android and PC have it.
Love NordVPN 5/5
Great for privacy. Highly stable and very little bandwidth loss overall.
Easy to use 5/5
I assume it’s working, since “VPN” shows up on my phone, but the interface is so easy and intuitive it seems like it should be more difficult. I have Nord installed on my family’s phones (both iPhones and androids), on a windows desktop and a Mac, and on my daughter’s laptop (Mac). All work perfectly - I think. :)
Well worth the price. The reason I went with Nord is that it was recommended by my cybersecurity department. They were spot on.
Second Updated Review: DO NOT BUY unless... 2/5
Of course after going through support where I repeatedly told them of my issues and them telling me to try more things, I’m finally offered a refund after submitting a review. Too bad that I’m now over 30 days. Here’s my background: I’m a Cyber Sec Analyst that needed a good and convenient VPN. Of course Nord worked in most of my situations, however, I think it’s crazy that ANYBODY would be able to test out every scenario in 30 days. So, I started my support case within 30 days, never got resolution or offered a refund, and now that I’m 2 months in to a 3 year paid contract, I’m told that I should request a refund through the same channel that originally didn’t help.
This VPN service DOES NOT WORK on a widespread city provided wireless network in our downtown region. Which means, when I needed it most, it wasn’t able to provide the protection I needed. After being asked to wipe my Network Connections AND download OpenVPN (and trying several of the manual settings) with no luck, what was I asked to do? Download and try MORE of these settings (why wouldn’t I just pay for OpenVPN at this point if I now have to have TWO apps?). I’m sorry if I had better things to do than sit on support chat or respond to emails.
It seems now that I’ve lost my $100/3 year plan and I’ll just delete the app and purchase another service.
Piss poor really. I’m sure if I never had gotten a new client in my downtown district I would have had an issue, but now that I do have an issue, 30 days after and finally being offered a refund, it’s too late. I knew when this was going to happen when the first support person wasn’t able to solve my issues and responded that my issue was “weird” that I going down the rabbit hole.
Support Case: 1634655 - the endless support case that never could. I’ll keep fighting the good fight I guess and work to solve a problem that I shouldn’t have. The solution offered also does NOT use the native app, instead, uses OpenVPNs backend with NordVPN profiles, which is also a manual connection that needs to be loaded individually. The last request is for logs and to try more recommended profiles, so, I guess I’ll update this review once all that’s been done.
Just works 5/5
I find the NordVPN app most dependable of the rest with more options than many others in case of disconnect.
New cell phone user, so far so good. 4/5
By Good Luck 998
Connects quickly on my IPhone. Connects very slow on my Windows 10 computer. So far so good. I don’t know how secure the VPN actually is as compared to other VPN’s, I’m not a tech pro, the ads say it is military grade. They are based in Panama.
Works Good 4/5
General locations of servers not just countries would be nice.
Reliable and fast 5/5
Yep. Just as the title says. Reliable and fast. The interface is easy to use also.
Works well 5/5
App works well and support is helpful if you have any issues.
Makes me more confident my privacy and finances remain under my control.
Great App! 5/5
Great app! I only wish that Amazon would function while using VPN.
Easy to use. Seamless on my Mac. iPhone and iPad. No discernible drop in bandwidth.
Love it! 5/5
It’s a vpn you know what it is. Totally worth it! P2P is fast for me. Currently in Canada. Lol
Awesome app 5/5
Fast and caring costumer support 5/5
This is my #1 suggested VPN APP.
