NordVPN 5.21

  • success
    Windows down, warm breeze, soft tunes poppin’… The new settler is rolling into the prime neighborhood called your home screen. Who’s this? Well, it’s the NordVPN widget.

    For countries with VPN servers in several cities, you will now see those cities on the map when you zoom in.
  • success
