NordVPN for macOS: release notes

Ultimate focus, a confident smile, an affirmative nod. Click – and the release is out. This is the spotlight for the updates in the NordVPN app for macOS – come to the bright side.

NordVPN 5.11.0 (latest)

(Sideload)

This release includes a hand-picked selection of bug fixes to make your app experience smoother, the internet safer, and you happier with NordVPN.

NordVPN 5.10.0

(App Store + Sideload)

Seasonal cleaning: fall edition. A selection of minor bugs was left behind while packing this release. Definitely not the hardest goodbye.

NordVPN 5.9.1

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    Morning or night, on OpenVPN (new!) or NordLynx – you can snooze VPN anytime. Shortly pause VPN protection instead of disconnecting and return to online safety automatically when the snoozing time runs out.
  • success
    The Big Sur adventure is ahead, so we’ve done some major prep to make sure your security journey with us continues smoothly.

NordVPN 5.8.1

(Sideload)

  • success
    Just in time for the back-to-school vibes, our app picked up a new skill: Bonjour! Hallo! ¡Hola! Yes, it’s going multilingual. So depending on your system settings, the app will speak to you in French, German, Spanish, or English.
  • success
    A few bug fixes before we go go.

NordVPN 5.8.0 (latest)

(App Store)

  • success
    Just in time for the back-to-school vibes, our app picked up a new skill: Bonjour! Hallo! ¡Hola! Yes, it’s going multilingual. So depending on your system settings, the app will speak to you in French, German, Spanish, or English.
  • success
    Pause VPN protection for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 1 hour and get connected again automatically. It’s like hitting “snooze” – only instead of a few more moments of precious sleep, you temporarily disable your VPN connection. Only on NordLynx for now.
  • success
    A few bug fixes before we go go.

NordVPN 5.7.0

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    Not so long ago, we revamped our Preferences section. This time, we sent it for a grooming session to make sure all layouts are on course, sharp edges are smoothened, and no one’s hiding in details.
  • success
    A few minor bugs minimized to the level of non-existence.

NordVPN 5.6.1

(App Store + Sideload)

For a top-notch VPN experience, routine maintenance is just as important as a new shiny feature. So nothing grand this time — just the usual bug-fixing business. We’re sending some good vibes and under-the-hood improvements your way!

NordVPN 5.6.0

(App Store + Sideload)

Here’s a hint: It lets you change looks. It’s where you go to switch to the fast lane with NordLynx or set online protection on autopilot with auto-connect.

Can you guess what we’ve just revamped?

It was on our to-do list for a while, and now we’re happy to bring it to light. Behold: the new Settings section with a fresh, modern look, more clarity and convenience.

NordVPN 5.5.7

(App Store + Sideload)

  • success
    Fixed: Sometimes, Recents would display a random country instead of the one of your latest connection. Lost? Not anymore.
  • success
    Fixed: The app icon would persistently stay in dock, even if you set it not to. Now it minds your preferences.
  • success
    In case of a lost internet connection, the app will keep trying to connect to VPN until the internet connection is detected again.

NordVPN 5.5.4

(App Store)

An ultimate focus, a confident smile. Click – and the release is out. For us, it’s one of the most exciting app releases ever. The project we’ve been relentlessly working on comes into light today. We call it NordLynx.

NordLynx is our new technology built around the WireGuard® protocol to bring you blazing speeds in VPN connections. Fast, secure, and optimized for privacy, NordLynx is set to be a game-changer in your VPN experience.

Even though this release is all about speeding up your VPN connections, we’ve also made a few other improvements:

  • success
    The app is now less hungry for power. Your battery power.
  • success
    Even if you asked to show the app icon only in the status bar, we kept it in the dock as well – just in case. All fixed now.

  • success
    A sneaky bug prompted users to install the helper tool again and again. Not helpful at all. It shouldn’t happen anymore.

NordVPN 5.5.3

(App Store)

  • success
    You’ll notice that the app looks slightly different now. That’s because of the title bar: it’s more compact, all action buttons aligned in a row, no more unnecessary space. Bliss.
  • success
    If you have questions or issues, you can drop us a line directly from the app: head to ‘Contact us,’ write your message, and our customer support will get back to you shortly via email.
  • success
    Give a warm welcome to two handy newcomers in the app’s Dock menu: Quick Connect and Recents.
  • success
    A few bug fixes and improvements under the hood to make your app experience smoother.

NordVPN 5.4.3

(App Store + Sideload)

Dear bugs, it’s not the same without you. It’s way better now. (Not trying to be mean or anything here. Just making the app experience better.)

NordVPN 5.4.2

(App Store + Sideload)

We’ve defeated a few sneaky bugs to make your VPN experience smoother.

NordVPN 5.4.0

(App Store)

  • success
    Guess who’s back. No, we weren’t hibernating all the way through winter. Instead, we’ve been silently working on some cool stuff that should be heading your way pretty soon.
  • success
    We’ve added an option to reset the VPN profile from the app settings. This isn’t something you’ll be using often – it’s more of a first aid if things aren’t going right.
  • success
    Fixed: So you’re setting up auto-connect, and our app goes like ‘whoops, wrong server list.’ We’ve made sure that it’s always the right one now.

NordVPN 5.3.6

(Sideload)

While you’re working on your ‘naughty-or-nice’ score, we continue improving your NordVPN experience. This release contains tweaks and improvements to the auto-connect feature, as well as minor bug fixes – all finely wrapped.

NordVPN 5.2.0

(App Store)

Now you can set auto-connect on Ethernet. Switch it on once and forget about it – simply enjoy fast and secure VPN connection.

NordVPN 5.1.5

Dear server picker,

We entrusted you with the most important task – to connect our users to the best server possible when they hit the Quick Connect button. However, sometimes you chose a poorly performing server – that’s quite a bummer. You’ve been a good algorithm [sigh of despair]. But it’s time to step aside and let server picker 2.0 to take over. No hiccups, only smooth and lightning-fast VPN connection in a single click.

Max, you might want to give Quick Connect another chance!

Side note #1: Search is now better at searching.

Side note #2: Now you can give us instant feedback about your connection quality. Was it like driving an F1 racer? Or rather a slow and bumpy ride? We want to know so we could improve.

NordVPN 5.0.0

What's new:

  • success
    It’s really hard not to get overly excited so.. NordVPN 5.0.0 is here! If you’d ask us to describe the new version in a single word, we’d say: versatile. Now you can set a protocol depending on what you’re up to. OpenVPN over UDP, OpenVPN over TCP, or IKEv2 – the choice is yours. The app still runs on IKEv2 as a default.
  • success
    Speaking of newness, we’re bringing out a new server category: obfuscated servers.
