I tested many VPN apps on my Macbook Pro, and most of them turned out to be completely useless. They either worked painfully slowly, or could not get around the geoblocks. MacOS is a secure system in itself. Accordingly, the VPN service should provide advanced level of protection, otherwise it just does not make sense to install it. Let's talk about NordVPN.

Extensive server network

Nord has a network with over 770 servers in 57 different countries. This is a large company with many technologies. As a result, you get a very fast and efficient service that is very safe. The company also undertook all the connection work by fulfilling the technical requirements for you.

Double VPN security

Nord VPN can guarantee you complete security. Moreover, you will not leave a single trace when carrying out any actions on the Internet. VPN Nord offers a DoubleVPN. This is something like multi-hop routing. This means that your traffic between your computer and the Internet is encrypted twice. And in truth, I like their cyber security policies, Internet censorship, anonymity and surveillance. Moreover, it is really fast. You can verify this by doing a speed test.

CyberSec: ad blocking and malware

It always seemed to me that such a service from a VPN provider could not be good. CyberSec is a great service. This is not only an ad blocker. This is a vital thing, especially if you cannot distinguish good links from bad ones. When turned on, Cybersec blocks all dangerous sites known to it. That is, if you follow a fake link, you will not become a victim of fraud or a cyber attack. Moreover, Cybersec will protect your device from getting into the bot network, even if it has already happened.

Kil Switch feature

Kill Switch constantly monitors your VPN connection (in the good sense of the word). If the connection is lost, the device or applications access to the Internet is automatically blocked. What protects your IP address from leakage to the provider and other unauthorized persons. When reconnecting with the VPN device automatically continues to work with the Internet.

Two ways to download

In fact, NordVPN has two apps for MacOS. One (available on the NordVPN website and compatible with Yosemite 10.10 and newer) provides access to OpenVPN, the second (available in the App store for Sierra 10.12 and newer) uses IKEv2 / IPSec. But to tell the truth, OpenVPN is a bit slower than you expect and a setup process can seem a bit complicated.

Price policy

As for me, the prices for NordVPN are quite competitive. You can use the subscription on 6 devices at the same time. It is only necessary to choose the period for which you wish to subscribe. If you decide to sign up for a couple of months, then Nord VPN will not be so cheap. However, annual and 2-year VPN subscriptions are among the most economical. You can also use the trial version. The developers guarantee a refund if you do not like the provider within 30 days.

Alternatives

Of course, NordVPN cannot be called the best in everything, but the service is as close to this as possible. If speed is your top priority (and don't mind paying extra for it), look at ExpressVPN, the fastest VPN we have ever encountered. If you're looking for a cheaper VPN with lots of features, take a look at Surfshark - it's a new VPN service with amazingly affordable deals.

In conclusion...

So what do I want to say? NordVPN should be taken right now. The price plan is quite flexible, and developers often arrange sales. It is also worth responding to the high level of customer support in online chat. It is much better than email or phone. You can solve any problem in a couple of minutes (e.g. picking a server to view Netflix).
