Introducing the next-generation NordVPN app for Android

We’re super excited to share that the latest release of the NordVPN app is finally here! Rolling out globally to Android smartphones and tablets, the redesigned app is now available on Google Play Store. Special thanks to our passionate beta testers who helped a lot to make these changes happen!

The reimagined, refreshed and relaunched NordVPN app will help you stay protected while streaming your favorite shows, downloading sensitive documents or simply surfing the internet. So let’s take a spin to see what’s new in it.

Online Security Made Simple

At NordVPN, we believe that advanced online security solutions should be accessible to every internet user. So we have designed our application around you: making it smarter, faster, more intuitive and easier to navigate.

Protect Your Online Privacy on the Go

Based on minimalism and intuitive functionality, our apps are tailored to provide fast and secure VPN experience, particularly for mobile users. Simply download our VPN for android, set it up, and you are ready to go.

Stay secure on public WiFi hotspots

Change Your IP With One Click

If you don’t have specific server requirements and just want to hide from snoopers and hackers, the Android app can automatically connect you to the best server available at the moment. To do this, simply tap the Quick Connect button on the home screen or while browsing a country list.

An easy and simple way to change your IP

Quickly Switch Between Servers

Open the map to pick the desired destination or choose it from the updated server list. What’s really cool is that from now on you can sort the servers by loads, distance, and our recommendations. And if you’ve found the server you like, simply add it to your favorites and connect to it faster next time.

Quickly choose from servers all over the world

Shield Yourself From Malware

With our new security feature, called CyberSec, you will be prevented from entering malware-hosting sites. If you are trying to access a website that is known for phishing or malware, CyberSec blocks the dangerous site. Just don’t forget to enable the feature in your settings.

Note: Due to Google’s policies, the CyberSec feature will no longer block ads on the NordVPN app downloaded from the Google Play Store. It will, however, keep protecting you from accessing malicious websites. The ad blocker is still available on the .apk version of the app offered exclusively on our website.

Turn on CyberSec to protect yourself from malware and unwanted ads

Take a quick look at the NordVPN Android app features:

  • Connect up to 6 devices under one account
  • Choose from 5511 servers in 59 countries
  • Turn on CyberSec to block malware-hosting sites
  • Quickly access servers optimized for your needs: Double VPN, Onion over VPN, P2P
  • See your session info (new IP address, VPN connection status and duration)
  • Filter servers by loads and distance or quickly connect to a recommended server

Ready to try? If you already have the NordVPN app, all you need to do is update it. Newbies are welcome to download it here.

P.S. We are always eager to learn and improve. So your feedback is highly appreciated!
