What is a VPN for Android?

A virtual private network (or VPN) for Android is a cybersecurity tool that protects your online traffic and virtual location on Android devices. An Android VPN app creates a secure connection between your Android device and the internet, changing your IP address and preventing others from spying on your online activities.

Everything you need from a VPN for Android

One-tap security

Peace of mind every day, in the blink of an eye. Tap Quick Connect, and enjoy privacy and security on your phone whether you’re scrolling, playing, or chatting with friends.

Best VPN for Android speed

Don’t choose between security and speed. Thanks to our lightning-fast NordLynx protocol and a vast server network, you can browse safely on any network without slowing down.

Built for everyone

Simple, slick, secure. The NordVPN app is super easy to use, with helpful suggestions for newcomers and extensive options for expert Android users.

Protected by a Kill Switch

Don’t gamble your sensitive data on a weak signal. Enable the Kill Switch in your phone settings (Android 8.0 or later), and it will cut your internet connection if your VPN connection drops.

Malware protection

Browse the web with confidence using NordVPN’s Threat Protection Lite feature. It automatically blocks dangerous websites and intrusive ads.

Secure multiple devices

One app to secure your every device. NordVPN works on every major operating system, and you can protect up to six devices with one account.
