This app is an exercise in frustration. I had difficulty with the last version but finally got it running. I have been unable to get this version to load. I keep getting endless keychain popup windows asking for the password (which I enter) and it refuses to load and connect. The only way to get access to the internet again is to unload it in network settings, delete the app and restart. I have a two year subscription....
I was trying to play clash mini so I logged on and there was no way I am paying $100 just for a FREE GAME!
I don't trust this company now. Yall are sketchy.
For years Nord applications for iPhone and iPad log me out without notice, leaving my internet connections unprotected.
Since Nov 24 (last week), I have been receiving notice from Nord on my macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 MacBook Air saying “THIS APP WILL NO LONGER BE SUPPORTED, MOVE TO THE NEW APP NOW”. I have downloaded the “new” app by clicking on the blue button that says “down load new app” on Nov 24, 25, 27 and 28 at least 5 times. But the same “move and download new app” message showed up after each download. In the past I have always had good luck getting problems fixed by NORD support team. I hope this review will get the help I need. Of course, I will update my review based on the response I get. Thank you in advance.
Need cheaper options like $5 a month not just a $100 a year
I’ve used 3 VPN services and NordVPN has been the best of the lot. Very stable and fast connections as well as a user friendly interface. Highly recommended.
It's been well over a year & no fixes for serious flaws. I paid up for a 3-year subscription. Mistake! The good: the NordLynx protocol is fast - hardly a dent in throughput. The bad: STILL quietly fails to connect the VPN leaving you unprotected when you think you are. No alert, no safety lock. On the latest iPhones the VPN indication isn't visible full-time, doesn't help. This app continues to disappoint. I haven't gotten around to installing it on my new laptop purchased 8 months ago. I'm putting off the aggravation I guess. And too busy to evaluate others. Come renewal time a free extension for the failure to fix these problems (multiple tech support tickets created) would not be enough. Even at no cost NORDVPN isn't worth it. It's truly worse than no VPN installed since far too often we're left to think our 'net traffic is encrypted. I should have demanded a refund long ago. I procrastinated hoping they would fix the problems. Especially on iOS where the platform is more consistent. Replying to support: I don't have a CURRENT support ticket. I've had several, nothing was ever resolved. Others are citing the same problems. VPN disconnects w/o notice. No "kill switch", Nordvpn happily allows all data to flow leaving the user unprotected. Sporadically prompts for account login. I've spent enough time helping you troubleshoot multiple long-term show-stopping problems! I'm convinced I've put forth more effort than development has. I pre-paid for three years as well! Shame on me! "Contact support so we can...". Kinda looks responsive. That's NOT my repeated experience. The "VPN connected time" is how development is spending their efforts?! It's effectively in-app false advertising. I wish I could attach a screenshot of Nordvpn proudly reporting my >7-days connected, while ALSO indicating the VPN is disconnected, & failed to connect. Hmm. More comedy: canceling Auto-Renewal, your website warns "Auto-Renewal extends your subscription before it expires, guaranteeing no breaks in your security." That's a CONSTANT with this app!
AND THERE IS A NEW VERSION NIGH DAILY! Somehow. And, yet, though I have set it up to turn on when I boot up. IT NEVER DOES. And, I always discover I was not actually protected. Over and over. Yet another instance of NOTHING WORKING in the year 2021!
It works like advertised good job developers 👍
