Features NordVPN’s 


Servers Around the world

NordVPN cover more than 5,000 servers in 60 countries. Due to that translates to not having to worry about slow Internet speeds. 

Kill Switch

NordVPN also featured a kill switch. This really came in handy when we were downloading a huge file during a storm. The kill switch automatically stopped our download and quit our apps, so that our activity wasn’t exposed, even for a split second.There are two version of NordVPN’s Kill Switch used, depending on your platform. The Windows or Mac version allows you to choose what apps stop communicating if something happens, while the mobile app version stops everything.


Static IP Addresses

NordVPN have static IP addresses were not one of them. If you use NordVPN you can not share this IP address with other users, which means that our specific activity was harder to track down

Speed Tests

VPNs will sometimes slow down our Internet speed, as the traffic has to go through an encryption server on top of a public network’s server. Regardless, we still want to see fast Internet speeds while we’re connected, so we made sure to test NordVPN ourselves. We use a Macbook Pro and an Acer Aspire 5 (Windows 10). Speed is determined by lots of factors, like distance to the server, the device’s make and model and the operating system, so keep in mind there are a lot of things at play aside from just the VPN itself.

Data Usage

NordVPN is one of our favorite VPNs to watch one of our favorite shows, we didn’t have to keep waiting for our shows to buffer. There are no data limits, meaning that some VPNs will cap our monthly network bandwidth and only allow us to download a certain amount of data. With NordVPN, we could indulge in as much online content as we wanted to. Best of all, we were able to watch Netflix. With the wide collection of servers in other countries, we even watched other countries’ shows.

How NordVPN is secured ?

Impressively secure. NordVPN has something in its armory to further bolster your security, and that's a kill switch. A kill switch is in place to prevent any data leaks in case the VPN connection drops. NordVPN stands out here for actually having two kill switches. A general internet kill switch blocks all net access when you're not connected to the VPN (this can easily be turned off if it's inconvenient), while an app kill switch closes your chosen applications if the connection goes down.
