Security & Privacy
When it comes to protecting your security and privacy, NordVPN performs as strongly as you’d expect.
Testing on www.dnsleaktest.com confirmed our connection was protected against DNS leaks:
Their system also uses Perfect Forward Secrecy, which assigns a unique secret key to your device which changes regularly. The advantage of this system is that, should your connection be compromised, the person who has obtained access will get locked out as soon as the secret key changes.
If you want an added layer of security, NordVPN supports Double VPN, which routes your connection through two different servers instead of one, and Onion over VPN. The latter also routes your traffic twice — first through the VPN and then through Onion’s secure network — before it reaches its final destination.
NordVPN is based in Panama, which does not have any data collection requirements. As a result, they collect minimal data:
- Your email address
- Payment information
- Messages you send to customer support
You can’t get any more peace of mind than this.
