If you enjoy getting technical with some basic coding, there’s a chance you own the credit card-sized $35 Raspberry Pi computer. Originally designed for education purposes, it was quickly adopted by electronics enthusiasts and creative tinkerers. Although Raspberry Pi is not as fast as a modern desktop or laptop, it does have all key abilities of a complete Linux computer.
As with any other Internet-connected device, using a VPN on Raspberry Pi is a good idea – especially if you tend to use it on the go and connect to public Wi-Fi networks. The most difficult part of setting up VPN on Raspberry Pi is to find a compatible VPN service. NordVPN is one of the few providers who offer compatibility, guidelines and tech support for Raspberry Pi.
This easy-to-follow tutorial will help you get started with a VPN on a Raspberry Pi device. Note: setup guidelines for other platforms and devices (macOS, iOS, Android and other) are available here.
OpenVPN is a mature, secure and robust open-source protocol, which works with a wide variety of cryptographic algorithms. We use OpenVPN in native NordVPN apps for other operating systems as the default setting, because it is considered to be one of the best protocols in the industry.
