Another Security Solution Released – Onion over VPN

Jan 30, 2014 · 3 min read

Onion over VPN moves the privacy and security to the next level. The principles of Onion over VPN usage: At first a client connects to NordVPN server, which then routes all traffic through a widely known Tor network. In this case, the traffic is firstly encrypted within NordVPN layer and later sent to the Tor network.

As you may understand, it is such a safe privacy tool because the encrypted traffic is routed to a few Tor hops and lastly ends up at the destination. It’s also easy to configure and does not need any advanced technical skills. Of course, using this kind of setup sometimes you might end up in a bad exit node with no internet or blocked Google, but the next request will be routed through another exit node and everything will work again. As the DNS traffic is also routed to the Tor network you will be able to access .onion websites just using NordVPN!


If you just aren’t aware what .onion websites are – .onion sites are like normal websites. These sites can be accessed only through Tor network (or now also with NordVPN). This kind of websites don’t have a domain name or are not known like in the regular network.

Please be aware that we are totally not responsible for what is done and hosted on the Tor network and we do not have any affiliates with them either. Our purpose is to provide the best possible security and privacy for our customers without tracking them or keeping any logs.
