Certain services like Netflix or BBC iPlayer alter their libraries depending on the country you are in. Using a virtual private network is the only reliable way to bypass these geographical restrictions and unlock the ‘hidden’ content. Travelling for business or pleasure? Studying or working abroad? Keep access to your favorite websites and entertainment content and forget about censorship or bandwidth limits.
You can secure up to 6 devices with a single NordVPN account – computers, smartphones, routers and more. VPN has never been easier and more flexible: at home, in the office and on the go.
Real internet privacy is just a click away. NordVPN protects your IP address and makes sure that no one else can see which websites you visit or what files you download.
NordVPN gives you peace of mind each time you use public Wi-Fi, access personal and work accounts on the road, or want to keep your browsing history to yourself.
Cybersecurity may seem very complex, but NordVPN makes it as easy as it gets. Cutting-edge technologies shield your internet activity from hackers and malware and protect you on public Wi-Fi networks.
Why should I encrypt my online data?
Internet service providers
They track your internet traffic and sell your data to advertisers.
They exploit unsecured connections to get inside your phones and computers.
Here is how your data can be exposed.
Once you’re connected to the web, every piece of your traffic goes through your internet service provider (ISP). That’s just how the internet works. To reach a website you have to send a request to the ISP, which directs you towards your destination. As a result, all that you do online is an open book for the ISP.
No technological barrier prevents the ISP from tracking and logging your online behaviour, selling the data to advertisers, or handing it over to the authorities. Ethical ISPs that protect the privacy of their clients are few and far between. And even if your ISP is trustworthy, the government can compel it to give up your browsing history.
Unless you use a Virtual Private Network
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) routes your internet traffic through a VPN tunnel – an encrypted connection between your device and the destination on the web. Not only does a VPN tunnel encrypt your data, but it also and hides your IP address and location. Like an armoured van, it takes you from point A to point B in total secret, shielding you from any dangers that lurk outside.
How does NordVPN encryption work?
Your device (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.) initiates a connection to a VPN server. Once the device is authenticated, NordVPN creates an encrypted tunnel.
Any data sent over the internet needs to be split into packets. So your private data is split, encapsulated and passed through the encrypted VPN tunnel. When the data arrives at the VPN server, the outer packet is removed to access the data within through decryption.
Your encrypted data looks like gibberish to any third-party observer:
· Neither ISPs nor hackers can read it, even if they manage to intercept it.
· No government can get logs of your browsing history since there are none.
Connected to a VPN server, you browse the internet in the cover of it’s IP address and location. With every new connection, your online identity switches to a new IP address, hiding you under a new cloak of encryption.
You get top-tier encryption with NordVPN
NordVPN has built its reputation through years of hard and diligent work, striving to make your online experience as private and secure as possible.
Security and tech experts like CNET, PCMag, and BestVPN have praised NordVPN for providing military-grade encryption that is virtually uncrackable.
Unfortunately, without encryption, your traffic is not safe. Third parties can easily access it through various lawful and unlawful ways. Your data is public by default. You have to take measures to make it private. And with NordVPN, you can.
