NordVPN is a premium VPN service based in Panama that markets itself as having one of the best performances thanks to its bespoke NordLynx protocol that implements a double Network Address Translation (NAT) system on a WireGuard backbone. Users have the option to switch to using OpenVPN (UDP or TCT) or IKEv2/IPsec if more transparency in the protocol is wanted.
Its primary selling features are its zero-logging policy and claimed super-fast network speeds. It offers subscribers unlimited bandwidth for up to six devices, and the company claims never to throttle speeds. There are currently no data collection and retention laws for services based in Panama, unlike other regions such as Europe. An audit of the logging claim by PricewaterhouseCoopers AG, Zurich, Switzerland reports this policy description is fair and accurate. Combined with this zero-logging policy, this means that, in theory, user privacy should be guaranteed.
