    On the surface, NordVPN looks like a really impressive service. It claims to have a huge global server network, the ability to unblock tons of streaming platforms, and iron-clad security and privacy features. Plus, you can get it all for just $3.29/month. That all sounds great, but is there a catch? To find out, I did an in-depth analysis of NordVPN. I tested its speeds and how well it performs...

    Best documentation was easy to understand

    I came from Surfshark which never worked correctly. I had to run from the browser extension with supp... ort telling me it was my network that was causing the problem. That was rubbish. I set Nord up and had it running in a short time from the documentation. I only had to ask support about accessing more servers than just the one I saw. Great product.More

    Average service, some nice features, rubbish support

    Basic features work really well. Basically. I liked the feature that when Nord crashes (as it seems to...  do monthly) it will shut other apps so they aren't exposed. My subscription is based in Australia. Found downloads peak at about 1-1.5Mb/s, which is ok as long as you aren't playing online games. Don't go for the frills (though hard not to when they gamify them). I canceled my subscription because I added the Kill switch and then MFA. Nek Minnit I can't even log in. No way to remove the Kill switch without logging in. Uninstalled, reinstalled no joy. Went to the help page, and it redirected me to up my subscription as the only solution. No chatbot where I am. and I don't have an email app so couldn't email help. After a couple of hours of mucking around. Gave up and went to a competitor. Note: if I hadn't played with the security settings, I would still be with Nord. But if I can't log in, it's a dead service to me.More

    VPN Tracker is an excellent VPN for Mac and iOS devices, as can be shown with their high-quality iOS interface. VPN Tracker offers servers that are mainly meant for professional, business internet usage, which differs from the usual focus of using VPNs for personal use. Unlike personal VPNs, VPN Tracker lets you connect to multiple servers all over the world at the same time, so you can communica...

    Worst Tech Support Ever

    I had been using VPN Tracker and World Connect for a number of years, and I don't know why. I guess on... e would call it lazy. I figured that it was easier than looking for alternatives. Each and every year VPN Tracker (Equinux) would faithfully deduct several hundred dollars (495.00) from my bank account (through credit card "on file") for the 12 months following the payment. All was humming along well until I needed tech support. That is when I realized how bad VPN Tracker was. Tech support? What tech support? It's almost non-existent. Keep in mind that VPN Tracker and World Connect are not freeware. They are fully chargeable software licenses. Yet, there is no number to call; only contact via email. Seriously? Email-only? C'mon, this is crazy. One pays a fairly high amount for use of their software for what would be considered a critical need, only to be at the mercy of whenever their support staff decided to acknowledge and reply to the request. My request for assistance was ignored for almost a week before the unending string of emails between Rafael and myself lead to nowhere. You know the drill. You contact tech support. They contact you back with a link to their FAQ's that have no relevance to the reason for contacting them in the first place. I finally gave up. At that point, I decided to move on and canceled my automatic renewal, which was scheduled to happen this July 2021. I fully expected usage of VPN Tracker and World Connect for the next four months. Not true, I come to find out. Because I canceled my auto-renewal, I wanted to delete my credit card information. That makes sense. Why have credit card information sitting on the servers of a company you no longer will be using when the subscription expires? Unfortunately, the credit card information can not be deleted by the subscriber, or so I come to find out. I then contacted Equinux and asked that my credit card information be removed from my account since I was not auto-renewing. Their reply was something that shocked me. They informed me that, if they delete the credit card info, it would then delete usage of the program even though I was paid through July 2021. This is why I left Equinux and VPN Tracker. They are the worst of all services I have ever used. Arrogant is a kind word. Save yourself the grief and look to any of the others, as I have. For the record, I have signed with Express VPN for anonymity and Sonic Mobile Connect for access to my local VPN. Goodbye Equinux and VPN Tracker. I wish I could say it was nice, but unfortunately, you soured me on our program with your policies and practices.More

    The Bottom Line

    Final Verdict NordVPN has plenty to offer, from fast speeds, to optimized servers and the ability to bypass geoblocks on streaming platforms like Netflix and HBO Max. It offers excellent security features like AES 256-bit encryption and a strict no-logs policy to keep you safe online. It can also work in China, provided that you install it before you get there, and it’s compatible with a wide range of devices. And when it comes to support, NordVPN is quick to respond with helpful and friendly answers. Its biggest downfalls for me were the long connection times and that it’s slightly more complicated to use for torrenting than other VPNs. It’s also unfortunate that it’s unable to unblock Amazon Prime Video and Sky Go. On top of that, I had difficulty finding the right servers for gaming. If you’re concerned about these issues, I’d recommend ExpressVPN because it offers top speeds
