Linux VPN Advanced features

Ultimate security for your Linux machine

Benefit from tough encryption

NordVPN secures your sensitive data with next-generation encryption. Whatever our Linux users do online, they do in complete privacy and security.

Stay safe at all times

If your VPN connection drops, the Kill Switch will block your computer from accessing the internet outside the encrypted VPN tunnel. This will prevent you from accidentally exposing your IP address and leaking data to your network manager, internet service provider, or others.

Block malware

Our Threat Protection Lite feature guards you against cyber threats. Block intrusive ads and avoid malicious websites when surfing the web.
