We felt like we needed to wrap up something for you, so here it goes: you’ve updated the NordVPN app 13 times this year! If you've been following the good cybersecurity practice of not skipping those app updates, of course.
And here’s why you should hit the ‘Update’ button one more time:
Better: Dark Web Monitor went through an improvement session to become neat and pixel-perfect.
Fixed: When you trust a Wi-Fi network, the app now properly shows that it has understood the assignment. No more hasty tapping to get a response.
Bugs can be beautiful. Take the bright-colored Cotton Harlequin Bug. Or the glistening Christmas beetle. Or bugs as pieces of digital art, the NFTs. Marvelous. We can’t say this about technical bugs, though. Instead of admiration, these cause disturbance in the NordVPN app experience. That’s a call for our bug-hunting team. Update your app to elevate the app to a higher state of smoothness and stability.
Ghosts, ghouls, and goblins might steal the spotlight during the spooky season, but cyber threats are haunting year-round. Avoid the spine-tingling cyber-scares by staying connected to VPN most of the time. Head to Statistics to see how well you’re doing: there’s a brand new graph that shows how long you stay protected per week. And don’t forget to build your protection streak!
Fancy a new challenge? We have one for you! You won’t need to dance, prank your friends, or show who's living in your house rent-free. You’ll need to secure yourself online instead – connect to VPN every day to build your protection streak. The more consecutive days you connect to VPN, the longer your streak is. It comes with a nice side-effect: a rewarding feeling of pride for making your life more cyber-safe day by day.
While you’re tracking your protection streak in Statistics, check your longest VPN connection. How long did it last? Try always keeping VPN on for seamless security. Looks like another challenge for you!
Contact us by using our new form in the app. Spotted a bug? Report it to us, and we’ll bring our bug spray. Missing a feature? Send a suggestion to our team.
We’re bringing a bunch of improvements and fixes together like pieces of a puzzle. The result – better VPN performance and overall app experience. Now it’s your turn to place the final piece – breathe in, breathe out, and update your NordVPN app. Ah, that puzzler’s joy!
Look up – and you might see a UFO, a billionaire, or a shooting star. Look down – and you’ll see a bottom navigation bar for quicker and more convenient access to everything in our app. Now there are 3 destinations at the bottom of the screen: VPN map with country servers, Settings, and Statistics – our newbie.
The new Statistics section shows your current connection details: time, country, protocol, and IP address.
A few bug fixes are in place, such as auto-connect refusing to activate on iPads sometimes, and offline status not showing.
While summer’s packing some heat, we’re packing fixes and improvements – in VPN performance, map, and overall app experience. Update now and be ready for a cybersafe summer!
Multi-factor authentication (MFA). It adds only a few seconds to your day but makes a huge difference to your account’s security. Set up MFA and use an authenticator app to verify that it’s really you logging in to your Nord Account.
Dark web alerts now come in the language of your app.
The app is now more fluent in all supported languages thanks to improved translations.
Location pins have transformed into location bubbles (*gasp*). After all these years. But hey, they’re still blue – even with the millennial purple trend going strong.
Cities on the map: For countries with VPN servers in several cities, you will see those cities on the map when you zoom in. Tap to connect to a server in New York, Berlin, Sydney… Well, it’s more exciting when you explore the city options yourself.
Security score: It shows the collective power of the features you’re using. The higher the score, the more powerful your online security. Check yours – if it’s not 100% yet, we’ll help you reach the summit of NordVPN protection in no time!
Is binge bug fixing even a thing? We suspect this is what's happening. If it’s an addiction, it’s a positive one – the NordVPN app runs smoother and your online experience gets better with every single bug that gets out of the way.
Is it too early for spring cleaning? We don’t think so. Inspired by this ‘new season’ mood, we got rid of a few bugs – no sweeping under the rug, actually kicking them out – and made a few tweaks. All to make the NordVPN app run smoother and be a joy to use.
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 matchy-matchy with iOS 14. The widget lets you Quick Connect without opening the app, see protection status at glance, and know the country you’re connected to when VPN is on.
When taking you to Nord Account to log in, we’ll follow along with the color theme and language of the app. Again, matchy-matchy.
Our Spanish translations were having a little siesta. So we did some fiesta to improve the experience for those of you who use NordVPN in Spanish.
A few tweaks under and above the hood to smoothen things out.
We saw an opportunity for the NordVPN app to run smoother and we took it. A few bugs got squished on the track, but they weren't supposed to be there in the first place.
New year, better us – improving your NordVPN experience one release at a time. We’ve left a few bugs behind, so update the app and let’s make it another great year of online privacy and security!
What’s that sound? The neighborhood’s wannabe singer letting everyone know what they want for Christmas? Year 2020 burning rubber when leaving us for good? Gingerbread cookies crunching? Not quite. It’s our team joyfully wrapping up a new feature for you – custom DNS! Now you can set a DNS server address of your choice if you want to.
While you’re working on your ‘naughty-or-nice’ score, we continue improving your NordVPN experience. This release contains minor tweaks and bug fixes, all finely wrapped.
A few visual tweaks, fixes, and improvements under the hood – all to make your NordVPN experience top-notch this upcoming holiday season.
Performance improvements: on board.
Destination: your NordVPN app.
Mission: star-level online protection.
Are you in? Update the app now to enjoy the best experience.
Meet Dark Web Monitor – a Sherlocky feature that silently scouts the shady, mysterious underbelly of the internet for data leaks. If it detects exposed credentials associated with your email address – ding! You get an alert. This way, you can immediately change your passwords on breached services to defend your data against cybercriminals. And flipping a switch is all it takes to power Dark Web Monitor. Elementary.
Not long ago, we introduced Nord Account, which unified the login and sign-up across all Nord products. This release includes an updated login flow, but you don’t need to do anything about it – your current account details are automatically transferred to Nord Account. Just lay back, relax, and continue enjoying online security. If you decide to expand your protection beyond VPN, your Nord Account will work like magic when getting on board with other Nord security products.
Now here’s a hint: it’s where you go to switch to the fast lane with NordLynx or set online protection on autopilot with auto-connect. Can you guess what we’ve just revamped? Behold: the new Settings with a fresh, modern look, more clarity and convenience.
Using iMessages? You’ll find a NordVPN sticker pack there, featuring a charming robot living its best life and ready to make your private or group conversations more fun.
Seasonal cleaning: fall edition. A selection of minor bugs was left behind while packing this release. Definitely not the hardest goodbye.
Morning or night, on OpenVPN (new!) or NordLynx – you can snooze VPN anytime. Shortly pause VPN protection instead of disconnecting and return to online safety automatically when the snoozing time runs out.
A few bugs have attempted to share a ride into the fall season with us but we politely refused. Smoother app experience, here we come.
2 words. 8 letters. Say it and enjoy a smoother app experience.*
*Works only if you install the update first to put those BUG FIXES in place.
This release includes a hand-picked selection of bug fixes to make your app experience smoother, the internet safer, and you happier with NordVPN.
For a top-notch VPN experience, routine maintenance is just as important as a new shiny feature. So nothing grand this time — just the usual bug-fixing business. We’re sending some good vibes and under-the-hood improvements your way!
Introducing dark mode: the long-awaited and much requested feature is now live! The NordVPN app will follow the theme of your iPhone or iPad.
Pause VPN protection for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 1 hour and get connected again automatically. It’s like hitting “snooze” – only instead of a few more moments of precious sleep, you temporarily disable your VPN connection. Only on NordLynx for now.
