NordVPN for Android

The prospect of privacy protection and occulting your smartphone's IP address with a VPN are sufficient selling points, but the ability to watch your Spanish-dubbed Turkish telenovellas while on the beach in Tahiti should seal the deal for real. Better security and access to geo-blocked content are part and parcel of NordVPN, a new Android app designed to bring VPN (Virtual Private Network) services to a larger public with its simplicity to set up and use.

NordVPN says that its apps have received wide acclaim from critics and users for their "breakthrough usability and design". The app can connect to the desired destination quickly by simply clicking on the country name, as it automatically selects the fastest server available.

Additional NordVPN features include service on up to six devices with one account, a choice of more than 550 servers worldwide, 24/7 customer support, an automated kill switch, integrated access to SmartPlay (an encrypted SmartDNS), double VPN, Tor over VPN, anti-DdoS, Ultra Fast TV Servers, a Netflix shortcut and more.
