NordVPN Windows Client Beta

NordVPN recently released a custom VPN client for Windows.  The app let’s you easily connect to any of their VPN servers in 14 countries.  It also has some nice advanced features including a kill switch to terminate programs anytime the VPN disconnects.  That will come in quite handy for some users I’m sure.  The new Windows client beta is open to the public.  NordVPN offers unlimited VPN for €8 a month or €48 a year.

After you sign up and receive a welcome email you can head on over to the NordVPN site and download the client.  From there you don’t have to bother with an install.  Simply run the executable file and log into the client.  That will bring up the screen shown above.  As you can see the client lists all the NordVPN server locations along with the option of TCP or UDP connection.  We like UDP for streaming and otherwise use TCP.

The second image to the right above shows the NordVPN software settings.  You can set the application to start with Windows, start minimized and show the latest NordVPN news.  You can also have the client auto connect to a specific server location.  Below that is a section called the process kill list.  Think of this as the internet kill switch.  If you have any programs that you’d  like to terminate if the VPN drops add them to the list.

NordVPN has been hard at work adding premium features to their service.  In addition to the new Windows client NordVPN recently announced the addition of Double VPN and Tor over VPN.  Both are accessible from within the client.  You can see them listed at the top of the list of servers above.  If you want maximum protection on their network we suggest Double VPN.  Tor users can use Tor over VPN for an extra layer of security.

We enjoyed checking out the new NordVPN software.  Remember that it’s currently in beta so you might experience some bugs along the way.  We look forward to seeing what the NordVPN team has in store for the year to come.  They’ve certainly gotten off to a quick start with the addition of Double VPN, Tor over VPN and nice Windows client software.  You can visit to learn more about the service and to test it out.
