NordVPN VPN Review for Android.

NordVPN is an excellent option for both beginners and power users. NordVPN goes above and beyond the competition when it comes to keeping your information, online activity private and secure.

NordVPN operates under the jurisdiction of Panama, as the country has no mandatory data retention laws and does not participate in the Five Eyes or Fourteen Eyes intelligence sharing alliances, it is an excellent choice.

NordVPN is one of the few premium services that provide a free trial and also offers a no questions asked 30-day money-back guarantee as well.

NordVPN has offices located in 19 different countries and has a strong user base of 14 million.

How to install:

First download the .apk-file. NoScript will block it temporarily, if you are using this plugin in your browser.

Note: The app is also available for download via Google Play, but if you wish to stay anonymous, I do not recommend it.

NordVPN requires an email address to set up an account. This is used only for account creation and any direct communication or customer service requirements. So register a free dummy e-mail address.

Get the best speeds with a VPN for Android in 2022

Next step is to login:

I do not recommend using Google as login, but it is your choice.

Use an anonymous email address !

Now you can choose between normal VPN server, just browse below or choose a specialty server.

There are P2P, Onion over VPN servers - only Netherlands and Switzerland and Double VPN servers.

 

Now, what is worrying about Android Apps is the data surveillance:

Now you can connect to ordinary VPN servers using OpenVPN or activate MeshNet, which is a protection layer for WireGuard.

With Meshnet you can let remote devices share the same IP-address, because MeshNet lets you route all your Internet traffic through a linked desktop device.

In your profile option:

You can increase your Security score by enabling 2FA and more, by clicking on the 60%> link.

You get notifications if your email leaked on the DarkWeb, Security score, where you can activate more features.

Note: You should connect your VPN now and check online if your IP is leaking !

Browser recommendations for Android:

  • TOR Browser - Based on Firefox v91-ESR edition, doesn't leak your real IP.

"Warrant Canary".

Basically it says:

NordVPN is based in Panama, "where data retention is not required and gag orders are not legally possible", but that it “will only comply with requests from foreign governments and law enforcement agencies if these requests are delivered according to laws and regulations.” It adds that it will “never log their activity unless ordered by a court in an appropriate, legal way.”
