Shutdowns, quarantines, and lockdowns have forced educators online. This brave new world of remote learning is not without dangers of its own. NordVPN is stepping up to help.
NordVPN will support educators all over the world with free online security tools. We are offering 6 months of free NordVPN, NordPass, and NordLocker for universities and institutions of higher education affected by the pandemic.
Academic institutions are treading on new ground. They’re conducting remote courses, setting up online exams, and digitizing day-to-day tasks when possible.
Meanwhile, cybercriminals have been keeping themselves busy. Coronavirus-related scams and security incidents are surging, from fake websites and fraudulent emails to outright cyber attacks.
Educators have their hands full. We come in to help.
It’s easy to use — it encrypts online traffic with just a click. NordVPN also lets you change your virtual location. So if you’re an educator stuck abroad, you’ll be able to access work information that’s only available from your home country.
NordVPN is the bare minimum you need for remote work.
NordPass is a password manager. Educators have to juggle multiple accounts, so they reuse passwords. Everyone does, it’s human nature — and it’s also a huge vulnerability.
NordPass generates strong passwords, keeps them in a secure vault, and lets you share passwords or notes with colleagues or students.
Educators can keep and share (large) files securely with NordLocker. This tool encrypts files on your computer or cloud via a drag-and-drop.
NordLocker makes sure that even if an attacker breaks through your outer cybersecurity barriers, they won’t be able to access your files.
