Russia is considered to be one of the global leaders in for-profit hacking, with Russian cybercrime representing an estimated $2 billion industry in 2014. The highest numbers of cybercrime victims are also located in Russia.
NordVPN increases online security. It encrypts your Internet traffic with military-grade security protocols, making it extremely difficult to intercept and decipher. For even more security, use one of the Double VPN servers.
Human rights groups consider Russia unsafe for those who speak out against the government. Whistleblowers, journalists and activists need to take the necessary precautions to keep their communications private.
NordVPN directs your Internet traffic through an encrypted tunnel and a remote VPN server, hiding your identity and the content of your communications.
Media content available for streaming is often restricted to certain countries. As a result, Russian residents may not be able to access their favorite TV shows and other entertainment content.
NordVPN allows connecting to remote VPN servers, which replaces your Russian IP address to make it look like you’re located in a different country. This unlocks the full range of entertainment content available in that country.
Although P2P has many legitimate uses, such as public distribution of science data, some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) block access to file-sharing sites or limit the available bandwidth.
NordVPN has a number of Russian VPN servers that are P2P-friendly and ensure high connection speeds for Russian users.
In recent years Russia has passed several new Internet laws, granting the authorities a legal right to conduct online surveillance on its citizens. One of these recent regulations mandate that all ISPs (Internet Service Providers) must record and store not only metadata but also the content of their users’ communications for up to 6 months.
Furthermore, the new laws mandate encryption service providers to decode messages and other data upon request of Russian Security Services. Even though these regulations are formally intended to fight crime and protect Russian values, critics say they are nothing but rough violation of privacy.
NordVPN helps to protect your online privacy. It hides your identity by encrypting the Internet traffic between your device and the VPN server. With your IP address hidden ISPs cannot monitor your communication activity.
Furthermore, NordVPN has a strict no logs policy and keeps no logs of its customers’ activities. Which means it cannot supply any information to the authorities even if they were forced to. Your private data is truly private with NordVPN.
