A mobile VPN, or virtual private network, ensures that your data is safe whether you’re using home Wi-Fi, a local cafe hotspot, or your mobile network. Here’s why you need a VPN on your phone:

  1. Every time you connect to an unsecure Wi-Fi, you’re exposed to cyber threats.
  2. Everything you do online can be tracked and logged by your mobile internet provider.
  3. Every website you visit sees your IP address.

How do mobile VPNs work?

A VPN protects your connection by creating a secure encrypted “tunnel” for your online traffic. First, the NordVPN app encrypts your data and reroutes it to one of our secure VPN servers. Once it receives your data, the server decrypts it and safely passes it on to your desired destination.

Encrypted data looks like gibberish without the right decryption key, meaning that anyone monitoring you won’t be able to tell what you’re doing. What’s more, anyone outside the encrypted tunnel will only see the VPN server’s IP address, hiding your virtual location from prying eyes.

Why mobile VPNs are a must

Mobile devices are all about greater connectivity. They let you check email, watch your favorite YouTube vlogs, scroll social media, play video games, or shop online on the go. That’s why having a secure mobile is just as important as having a secure personal laptop or work computer.

In fact, a phone VPN may be even more necessary, considering that you share your private and sensitive data through unprotected public Wi-Fi at airports, coffee shops, libraries, or hotels. Mobile VPN apps keep you safe online when you’re at your most vulnerable — relaxing after a long trip, chatting with your friends, or checking your finances during an emergency abroad.

Mobile VPNs offer the same level of security and privacy as traditional VPN services, only tailored for the challenges of the wireless world. They are designed to automatically adjust when you move between different Wi-Fi networks or out of the coverage zone, keeping you safe even if your connection is disrupted.

A secure mobile protected by NordVPN lets you connect to unsecured public Wi-Fi networks without worrying about snoops, shields your IP address from prying eyes while you’re on the move, and lets you access your favorite content from home when abroad.

Protect 6 devices at the same time

Alongside apps for iOS and Android, NordVPN provides protection for macOS, Windows, and Linux. You can connect up to 6 devices at the same time for the same price — just one account means a secure mobile, secure laptop, secure smart TV, and others.
