NordVPN offers proxy extensions for Chrome, Edge, and Firefox

What is a VPN proxy extension and how does it work?

A VPN proxy extension is a lightweight version of a VPN app. Our VPN browser extension encrypts your browser’s traffic, protecting your data from snoopers. The NordVPN proxy extension also changes your IP address and virtual location so you can surf the net in more privacy.

VPN extensions for safer browsing experience

Your browsing is safer with NordVPN extensions

Not all websites are configured to provide a secure connection (HTTPS), which encrypts traffic. When you connect to a site that isn't secure, you become an easy target for online spying.

NordVPN extensions for Chrome, Edge, and Firefox protect your browser traffic from prying eyes — even if the website is not secured, you are.

Reap the benefits of a VPN proxy extension

VPN proxy extensions encrypt and protect the data


Your traffic is passed through a secure HTTPS server, ensuring that TLS encryption protects your data even when visiting HTTP, or simply outdated, websites.

VPN proxy extensions hides your IP address

Hidden IP address

Usually, you reveal your IP address to any website you visit. Not anymore. Connected to a NordVPN server, you browse the net under the cover of its IP addresses. Your true online identity remains hidden.

NordVPN extensions disable the WebRTC protocol

Disabled WebRTC

Chrome, Edge, and Firefox use the WebRTC protocol, which is prone to leaks. Even if you’re using a VPN, it can reveal your IP. NordVPN fixes this by disabling the WebRTC protocol – you’re safe both with the app and the extensions.

NordVPN proxy extensions protects your browser from intrusive ads and block malicious sites

Threat Protection Lite

Protects you from intrusive ads and blocks malicious websites. It’s a digital watchdog inside your browser. Turn it on/off with a single click.

VPN proxy extensions support split tunneling feature

Split tunneling

No need to switch the VPN off for specific websites — secure what matters with split tunneling. NordVPN’s proxy extension allows you to leave out specific URLs out of the VPN proxy connection while protecting the rest.

One-click security

You connect to a NordVPN server with one click. Alternatively, you take two clicks and choose a server in a particular country.

Why do you need a VPN proxy extension?

If you’re looking for a lightweight, super-fast, customizable and secure connection on your browser, the NordVPN proxy extension is the way to go. It protects your browsing activities without encrypting all of the internet traffic on your device. NordVPN’s proxy extension also lets you filter out specific URLs, so you don’t have to switch off the extension to visit a certain website without a VPN. It’s a great choice for when you need some extra protection without the powerful security features the NordVPN native app offers.

What is the difference between proxy extension and a VPN?

The proxy extension for Chrome, Edge, and Firefox is a lightweight version of the NordVPN app. With a NordVPN subscription, you’ll get access to all the extensions and apps (Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, and Linux), and secure up to 6 devices at the same time.
