What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Customer service: Even though we were happy about NordVPN’s options of a live chat, email support, and an FAQ database, we wished the company had phone support.
  • Torrenting: Although NordVPN allows torrenting on its servers, not all servers work with torrent clients. Finding a server for torrenting requires trial-and-error.

Bottom Line

One of the better-known VPNs, NordVPN's Panama headquarters makes it a top choice for the privacy-concerned, as Panama isn't a member of any international surveillance alliances. On top of that, NordVPN has some of the best security and privacy features, including Double VPN and Onion Over VPN.
