To receive further NordVPN app updates, your device must run macOS Catalina 10.15 or a later version.

    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.

    New addition to the Threat Protection stack! Tracking parameters – those tiny bits of text at the end of web links – are a privacy buzzkill. They’re made to track your interactions with social content, emails, ads, and websites. To enhance your privacy, Threat Protection now removes tracking parameters from web addresses as you browse. Shorter and cleaner URLs mean more privacy and convenience when bookmarking or sharing links with friends. Enable it in Threat Protection settings.

    New feature: Meshnet! From now on, you only need the NordVPN app with Meshnet enabled to connect to remote devices securely. Meshnet is great for accessing and sharing files, playing multiplayer games, or getting some work done on shared projects! Link up to 10 of your own devices and 50 devices of other NordVPN users. Route all your online traffic through another device to access the internet under that device’s IP address. With the sideloaded NordVPN app, other devices can also route their traffic through your Mac.
