NordVPN is a great all-round VPN service, offering super-fast speeds thanks to its ‘NordLynx’ protocol (based on WireGuard), lots of servers around the world and the fact that it’s sensibly priced.
It’s adept at unblocking popular video streaming services and will, of course, unblock websites that you can’t otherwise access.
Nord’s iPhone app looks great and is easy to use. You can have a list of your favourite servers for even faster connection, as well as configuring the app so it connects to the VPN when your phone joins an unknown Wi-Fi network.
The only missing feature is split-tunneling so you can’t set it up so only specific apps use the VPN. But most people don’t need to do that anyway.
NordVPN is based in Panama, an ideal territory for privacy laws. Plus it doesn’t collect or store any information about how or when you use the service, so it would have no data to hand over even if authorities were to request it, which they won’t. Better still, it has been audited recently to confirm that these aren’t simply claims.
The service lets you connect to up to six devices at once and also has apps for iPad, Mac, Windows, Android and Amazon Fire TV.
If you subscribe for two years, you’ll get a hefty discount, too.
