    A few minor tweaks under the hood for the app performance to match its uplifted look.

NordVPN 6.6.1

(App Store + Sideload)

We’re happy to announce that NordVPN now runs natively on M1 Macs! Flex the performance boost of Apple's powerful silicon chip while securing yourself online with the fastest VPN on the planet. Woah, now that’s one speedy combination. And just to clarify – the app continues to run at its best on Intel-based Macs. No matter the chip, we got you covered.

NordVPN 6.5.0

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    New: 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.
  • success
    A bunch of minor fixes and improvements for a better, smoother NordVPN experience. Such as dialog boxes that stay where they’re supposed to be and an expanded app preview for users who don’t have a subscription yet.

NordVPN 6.4.2

(App Store)

  • success
    Advanced Kill Switch is now available on OpenVPN too, in addition to NordLynx. A quick reminder of what it does: it brings an additional security layer for protection against rare and very specific IP leaks.

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    A bunch of minor improvements, which add up to that bigger picture of smooth NordVPN experience.

    Dark Web Monitor: Meet 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.

NordVPN 6.3.0

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    From time to time, we have some interesting stuff to share with you. However, the app was missing a line of communication and behaving in a completely reserved manner (blame our silent Nordic personality, we suppose?). Now it’s time to break the ice: product updates and hand-picked security tips will reach you via in-app messages.
  • success
    As we were in a mood for spring cleaning, 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.

NordVPN 6.2.0

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    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.
  • success
    When you launch the app, the map will be in the same position as you left it. Must be improved memory or less of an adventurous spirit.
  • success
    A few tweaks under the hood to smoothen things out.

NordVPN 6.1.2

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    The NordVPN app for macOS now has the new login flow via Nord Account – home for all your Nord services. You don’t need to do anything about it, as your current account details are automatically transferred to Nord Account. From now, we’ll simply take you to your browser to log in and then bring you back to the app. Smooth.
  • success
    There’s at least one thing to be certain about – ain’t no update without bug fixes. And this one is not an exception, regardless of the times.

NordVPN 6.0.3

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    Presets were acting a little clumsy sometimes, so we added some grace to bring them back in balance.
  • success
    A few tweaks under and above the hood for the NordVPN app to run smoother.

NordVPN 6.0.2

(App Store + Sideload)

Sometimes, minor improvements are enough to make an impact. That’s the case of this release: a few tweaks and fixes to make the NordVPN app work better for you.

NordVPN 6.0.0

(App Store + Sideload)

We’re excited to introduce Presets!

  • success
    Presets combine custom VPN connection settings with shortcuts to apps or websites.
  • success
    You’ll find them super handy if you use VPN differently for different services – news, entertainment, downloads, you name it.
  • success
    Choose a protocol, a server country, add website links or apps, and your Preset is ready!
  • success
    Basically, Presets are like secure shortcuts – you set them up once and enjoy safe one-click access from the NordVPN app anytime.
