Worked long enough for me to commit to a 2 year plan but for the past few months, can't seem to hold a connection. Disconnects and reconnects every few minutes which makes using it pretty much impossible. Tech support is not effective - don't seem to care much. I made the mistake of signing up for a long-term plan so that's money down the drain. They don't deliver and won't refund. Edit: See Nord's response below.... Give me a break Nord. How about reflecting some honesty in your reply. You've got my ticket number. I've spoken with your tech support people. I have the arrogant reply from your billing people saying essentially, "go read the terms and conditions. We're not giving you your money back". You're not living up to YOUR end of the Terms and Conditions and still refuse to give me my money back. That's fraudulent advertising. Hope others take note.
All the 5 stars must be made by NordVPN staff ( check yourselves as they are all 6 days or 2 days ago and all only make 2 reviews ) the 30 day 100% refund is rubbish as they want to know the in and out of you're life , they want screen shots , the live chat is a robot of i did as suggested and still they will not refund and im losing 75% of my speed having done everything the generic robot said on live chat ... Avoid as they do not honour the 30 days refund and even ask for " screen shots " and other information which goes against privacy ! False advertising , false speeds , generic live chats and have contacted PayPal and also my card handler *EDIT They do not also say $79 means " we at nord charge what we like " USA to GBP was $1.25 yet you get charged near £65 GBP not the right just over £61 GBP , they say they add " fees " to change currency , no the $79 should be the fee and their problem on the exchange and not for them to penalise people for " fees "
I have had a number of irritating problems with this VPN that I already purchased for 2 years. First, I get capchta challenges from Google, Alibaba, and Amazon all the time. I even got some capchtas from YouTube while logged in with my own YouTube account. I verified this with my free version of Tunnel Bear. With the Tunnel Bear, I didn't get Capchtas when I checked and then reverted back to Nord and the capchtas return. Worst case on several occasions I was blocked from accessing Alibaba several times and PayPal several times. I am unhappy about this purchase because of these issues. They do provide service quickly and respond to issues.
Spent an hour on chat to 2 support agents trying to solve a dns leak, the 2nd tech said he would escalate my issue to a senior tech and to expect an email within 24 hours. That was 10 days ago and still no email! They simply take your money and run!
Nord VPN works great with Windows - but with Linux watch out! Almost impossible to switch server locations - support is extremely clueless when it comes to LInux support. After six months, I asked for a refund and so far they refuse. I will never use them again.
I've found the speed to be reasonably fast, haven't noticed any impact streaming netflix, youtube, torrenting or just downloading or browsing. What is important they are out of 14 eyes and doesn't save any logs.
Ideal for China expats and locals. Domain is reachable without vpn, performance is just great. It's gonna be #1 vpn in the world and China
Customer service sucks I contacted them regarding a connection, stating that I had resolving host status in my browser and was not able to connect to the server. Then customer service contacted me and asked me to go see my ip at whatismyip.com and attach a screenshot.. The status resolving host won't get you connected to any websites so can't find my ip while connecting. They suck at giving support.
Great speeds, maybe it's because I'm pretty close to the server (actually near around 30 servers) but don't have anything to complain about. So far so good
Avoid..... will rob your money and cut all wifi connection of your devices
