NordVPN Upgrade To Boost Your Internet Speed

0

Starting April 22, NordVPN has started rolling out NordLynx –– a new technology built around the WireGuard protocol, for its Windows, Mac, Android and iOS client-software applications. You can expect your VPN connection to be faster than ever as a number of tests show that NordLynx’s speed outperforms any other mainstream protocol several times, NordVPN said.

  • NordLynx is based on the WireGuard protocol, which uses cryptography and is the result of a lengthy and thoroughly considered academic process.
  • It is faster than the current leading VPN protocols, such as OpenVPN and IPSec, but often criticized for its ability to secure users’ privacy. “This is the main reason why NordVPN came up with the new NordLynx technology. It is a new-generation VPN protocol that is faster than anything we’ve seen before,” explains Daniel Markuson, a digital privacy expert at NordVPN.
  • NordLynx combines WireGuard’s high speeds and NordVPN’s custom double Network Address Translation (NAT) system to protect users’ privacy.
  • NordVPN’s double NAT system allows establishing a secure VPN connection without storing any identifiable data on a server. Dynamic local IP addresses remain assigned only while the session is active. Meanwhile, user authentication is done with the help of a secure external database.

To switch to NordLynx, users need to update their NordVPN app to the latest version. The NordLynx protocol can be chosen manually from the Settings menu. As the updates are being released gradually, it might not be available for all users right away.
