And, of course, NordVPN is your friend here, as it encrypts your traffic and prevents anyone from seeing what you are doing.
NordVPN is part of Nord Security, an online security company that aims to provide users with all the necessary online security tools. NordVPN is the world’s leading VPN provider protecting millions of internet users every day. We employ next-generation tech solutions to make sure our users enjoy online safety with peace of mind. Thanks to one of these advanced solutions — NordLynx, a brand new tunneling solution, NordVPN has become the fastest VPN on the planet, as confirmed by the latest speed tests.
What is a VPN and how does it work?
A virtual private network (VPN) encrypts online traffic and enhances privacy by changing the IP address and virtual location. It does so by routing all your internet traffic through a remote server. NordVPN offers over 5,200+ servers in 60 countries. It’s especially important to have VPN protection when you connect to public Wi-Fi. Public hotspots are inherently unsafe, cybercriminals can easily compromise them or set up fake hotspots to lure unsuspecting victims. You should always use NordVPN before connecting to public Wi-Fi.
NordVPN is available on every major platform. You can use NordVPN on your laptop (Windows, macOS apps) or download it on your phone (Android, iOS apps). There’s also a NordVPN app for Android TV and Linux, while the lightweight extensions for Chrome and Firefox can secure your browsing in an instant.
