Please Note: Although technically you can use the L2TP / PPTP protocol, it has serious security flaws. Whenever possible, we recommend choosing OpenVPN or IKEv2/IPSec instead.

This is a tutorial on how to connect to NordVPN using the PPTP protocol on Windows 10.

1. Open Windows Settings > Network & Internet > VPN, and click on “Add a VPN connection”.



2. A list of settings will appear. Type in:

VPN provider: Windows (built-in)
Connection name: Any name, it does not matter.
Server name or address: A server name from our server list, at https://nordvpn.com/servers/ (for example, us333.nordvpn.com)
VPN type: PPTP
Type of sign-in info: User name and password
User name: Your NordVPN username
Password: Your NordVPN password
Afterwards, click save.


3. Click on the VPN connection you have just configured, and then click “Connect”.



4. Once it says “Connected”, you will be successfully secured!
