Because of copyright agreements, streaming media providers often have geographical restrictions on their content. For example, movies and shows available in the US are blocked to users in other countries. To enforce these geo-blocks, providers restrict VPN services or other methods of changing one’s IP address.
However, many countries have serious online privacy or security issues: state surveillance, Internet censorship, cybercrime or a lack of net neutrality protections. Streaming without VPN can be outright dangerous. Therefore, NordVPN allows streaming media content while being fully protected with military-grade encryption.

All NordVPN apps have the Smart Play technology enabled by default, letting our users access over 400 streaming websites without any extra steps.
With NordVPN, you can securely use streaming services on various devices. With a single account, you can set up NordVPN on six devices at the same time.
Streaming requires fast connection. That’s why NordVPN keeps investing in architecture that offers not only world-class security, but also reliably fast VPN speed.
Peer-to-Peer file sharing is often discouraged by Internet service providers, but it actually has a number of legitimate uses. For example, P2P services are great for public distribution of free-access data. This includes open-source software, public domain videos and even large government data sets.
Regardless of the purpose of use, it’s always important to take safety measures when sharing files. NordVPN is a P2P-friendly service. It encrypts and funnels all your Internet traffic through a remote VPN server, hiding your IP address in the process, to provide both security and privacy. For more information on P2P, please visit our Help Center.
For the best P2P experience, NordVPN provides hundreds of servers optimized for P2P activities. Check our Server List for the full selection.
No Bandwidth Limits
NordVPN does not engage in bandwidth throttling and has no data caps. You can download, upload and stream to your heart’s content.
If you don’t need heavy encryption but prefer privacy and speed instead, NordVPN offers the SOCKS5 proxy. It’s a great option for P2P activities.
