A VPN is an excellent way to increase your security and privacy online. It conceals your IP, cloaks your virtual location, shields your data traffic from snoopers, and protects you from various cyber attacks.
For years, NordVPN offered users additional protection with CyberSec. But now, with our advanced Threat Protection feature, it’s time for the next step in your digital security. It neutralizes cyber threats before they can do any real damage to your device. Threat Protection makes your browsing safer and smoother. It helps you identify malware-ridden files, stops you from landing on malicious websites, and blocks trackers and intrusive ads on the spot.
Once you enable the Threat Protection feature in your NordVPN app settings, it will protect your browsing even when you’re not connected to a VPN server.
IT security threats are everywhere. One wrong turn when surfing the net, one hasty click on an email attachment, and your gadget gets infected with malware. That’s why scheduled malware scans aren’t enough anymore. You need something that secures your traffic at all times.
NordVPN’s Threat Protection tool shields you from malware in a couple of different ways. It prevents you from accidentally visiting malicious websites by restricting your access and showing you a warning message instead. Threat Protection also scans the files you download. If it detects malware in the file, it deletes it immediately, before the contents can do any damage to your device.
Surf the net without a trace. Websites you browse are full of third-party trackers that collect information about what you do online. This information is used to create your digital profile and then serve you intrusive ads or unfair prices based on your previous purchases.
While a VPN protects you from tracking by changing your IP and encrypting your data, Threat Protection takes it to the next level. It blocks trackers so that you can enjoy the highest level of privacy.
We’ve all been there — you open an article in anticipation just to see dozens of ads and pop-ups covering the screen. Auto-play videos tune out your favorite podcast or song. They’re not only annoying — worse still, some can even contain malware.
But with Threat Protection, you can forget about that. It stops the intrusive and malicious ads before they even get the chance to load. This not only makes your browsing experience safer. It also improves the load of the site you’re visiting so you can enjoy a smoother browsing experience.
Stay secure. Always. You don’t need to connect to a VPN server for the Threat Protection feature to keep you safe. Switch it on in the settings menu of your app and enjoy a higher level of security whenever you go online.
Threat Protection is not just about improving your online safety and browsing experience. All the blocked ads, trackers, malicious websites, and malware-infected files will appear in a 7-day protection summary. You can analyze your data and note which websites you should avoid visiting in the future.
