NordVPN Review

https://www.nordvpn.com

This is a short review of NordVPN.

We will rip NordVPN apart and see what’s inside. So before you decide which provider to choose, you’ll know everything that separates this service from others. We are going to have an in-depth look at the company, features, and more.

  • Usability testing
  • Policy review
  • Trial and price

So let’s get started.

Location

NordVPN is located in the privacy haven of Panama.

NordVPN website in 2013

Its company TEFINCOM S.A. is located outside the Eyes jurisdiction, but payments go through CloudVPN Inc. which is in the USA.

You might think ‘why are there two companies’? This is mainly because Panama has strict privacy laws, but the USA accommodates better infrastructure for handling daily work businesswise.

No logging, No Leaks

Some VPNs log your data and leak IP addresses. NordVPN does not.

NordVPN is a reputable provider with no logging policy. As a result they can’t provide your history even if you request it. More importantly, they don’t leak your IP address.

Privacy Policy and Terms of Service

Both the terms of service and the privacy policy were well written and needed only stylistic/wording corrections.

Privacy policy

  • The section “Other Terms” in the privacy policy states in the first paragraph that “If the data are processed by a designated subsidiary in your country, then the domestic law of your country may be applicable at our discretion”. This phrase alters the protections afforded to users of the VPN service based on the subsidiaries that NordVPN utilizes. This could affect the privacy of users as NordVPN applies the laws of Panama, but could foreseeably attempt to apply other laws.

Terms of Service

  • This Agreement had no issues with grammar or spelling. A few stylistic notes were all I had regarding the structure of the agreement.
  • The “Miscellaneous” section was the only substantive comment I had. NordVPN has their notice of updates to the Terms under the “Miscellaneous” section, where it traditionally would have its own section.

User Interface

Their desktop application is plain simple.

Have a look:

Did you see two types of kill-switch?

This is rare. One is for Internet drop, the other for application failure. Their connection time and overall speed are fast.

Pricing

There is a special price on their website that beats all and makes NordVPN the cheapest high-quality VPN –

$2.75 / month for 3 years.

Compatibility

All popular devices are supported.
 You can connect up to 6 devices: 
  • desktop computers
  • laptops
  • smartphones
  • tablets
  • gaming consoles
  • Smart TV (Android)
  • routers

Why is it Awesome?

NordVPN has the cheapest high-quality VPN service offer for $2.75 per month.  The price makes it really attractive. Furthermore, it can be connected to 6 devices which is more than usual. We believe that it is the best choice if you are price conscious.
