NordVPN was born in 2012 when four childhood friends came together to build technology that could liberate the internet. The feeling that the internet was losing its main purpose led to a search of possible solutions on how to overcome all the restrictions. After setting up the first VPN server and sharing the prototype among friends, the creators were encouraged to continue their work. That's how NordVPN was born, now serving more than 8 million people worldwide.
Now, NordVPN is one of the most trusted privacy and security service providers in the world, serving more than 8 million people, and maintaining its strongly held values and well thought-out features.
