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.
How it all started
Who we are now
Creating a safer and better internet
VPN Trust Initiative
NordVPN is a founding member of the VPN Trust Initiative (VTI). VTI is aimed at educating the public about cybersecurity and setting quality standards for the whole VPN industry. With it, we hope to improve VPN services and help people stay safe online, no matter which provider they choose.
Internet freedom is one of our core values, so we’re always involved in digital rights projects. We give others emergency VPN access to help fight surveillance and censorship, materially support causes focusing on human and digital rights, and work hard to educate the public about the importance of cybersecurity.
Nobody’s perfect. To help improve the quality and security of NordVPN services, we’ve launched a generous bug bounty program. This way, both ordinary people and professionals can be rewarded for uncovering vulnerabilities in our network and protecting our users.
Audits can reveal weaknesses — and strengths. We routinely submit our apps to independent researchers for thorough security testing, fixing any flaws uncovered. We also rigorously audit our vendors for reliability. Finally, NordVPN was the first VPN to have its no-log policy audited independently — a practice that has since been adopted by the rest of the VPN industry.
Our mission is to make Tim Berners-Lee’s vision of a truly open internet a reality. Mr. Berners-Lee imagined the internet as a very different place when he implemented the first successful HTML communication in 1989. It was to be a safe space, free from censorship and surveillance. Unfortunately, as headlines around the world show daily, this is hardly the case.
Our team of mathematicians and technologists wake up every morning with one core goal — to keep the internet as free as possible. This is our passion and why we come to work every day. We strive to provide security and privacy on the web. We make sure no one sees what you do online because they shouldn’t. Nor should we, for that matter.
For this reason, our VPN servers keep no logs. If someone asks us about you, we have nothing to share. We are free internet enthusiasts who believe in a common, secure future online. We support fighters for human rights, journalists, volunteers in conflict zones, information activists, and anyone who believes in the power of the open web as imagined by Mr. Berners-Lee.
In the spirit of transparency, we’ll do everything we can to keep you updated about all aspects of our service, from server status upgrades to occasional glitches. We aim to create a lasting relationship of mutual trust with you, the customers who share our deeply held values.
