Online security starts with a click
We strive to make the internet better than it is today. It can be free from online threats, censorship, and surveillance, as envisioned in 1989 — the year the World Wide Web was invented.
In 2012, four childhood friends came together to build NordVPN. They had spent a lot of time in different parts of the world but saw the same picture: growing internet censorship, content control, and intrusive government surveillance. In other words, they saw a rapidly growing need for an internet security tool that’s easily accessible to everyone.
The creators set up the first VPN server and shared the prototype among friends. The feedback was extremely positive, which encouraged them to continue their work. The road wasn’t easy, but grit, determination, and pursuit of innovation kept them going.
NordVPN takes its inspiration from the Nordic ideals of confidence, trust, and innovation. We value our customers’ freedom of choice and strive to be innovative with our technology.
What started with a single VPN server is now one of the most trusted internet security providers in the market, serving over 15 million users worldwide. Known for strong values and well-thought-out features, NordVPN is recognized by influential tech sites and IT security specialists.
NordVPN grew beyond its original design. Along with VPN solutions, we now provide wide-ranging internet security solutions for our users.
When the first clunky version of our product saw the light of day, internet security was a niche subject. NordVPN helped make it mainstream.
