Your personal IP, your control. Easily switch to a dedicated IP address in the NordVPN app.
To prevent unwarranted access to sensitive systems, administrators may specify a list of authorized IP addresses. This way, you can log in to a system only if your IP matches one on the whitelist. A dedicated IP address is an ideal solution for accessing corporate remote access systems or private servers securely.
If you use VPN for secure online banking, each time you may appear to virtually be in a different location. Banks may treat it as a suspicious activity and lock you out of your account. Solution? Using VPN with a static dedicated IP lets you avoid repetitive verification while keeping your security in place.
A downside of a shared IP is a “bad neighbor effect”: you never know what other users with the same IP address are up to. That’s why shared IPs can turn up in blacklists, limiting your access to certain websites. Even though a dedicated IP address is not as discreet, there is a much lower possibility for it to be blacklisted.
Multiple people using the same shared IP address often trigger CAPTCHA authentication. It becomes too annoying to constantly prove that you’re not a robot. By using a dedicated IP address, you will be able to log in to your email and other online accounts without unnecessary interruptions.
When you connect to NordVPN, we assign you an IP address that is shared with other users. This is a default practice to ensure your ultimate online privacy.
Privacy-wise, using a shared IP is the best option. However, using VPN with dedicated IP adds other benefits on top: accessibility and risk-free online reputation. That’s because a dedicated IP address belongs to only a single account – yours, instead of being used by hundreds of other users.
No matter if you’re using a shared or a dedicated IP, your online data is encrypted and location hidden. So what are the differences?
