Nord VPN Review
NordVPN is a Panama based VPN, with servers fast enough to support live streaming and torrenting. But what’s really important is the fact that NordVPN operates from a country where there’s no law for logging or keeping logs of Internet traffic. Therefore, NordVPN has three strong points when it comes to torrents or streaming:
- Panama jurisdiction is outside the reach of US or UE.
- NordVPN uses strong encryption and even has a feature of “Double VPN” for more security.
- an online basic antivirus protection and ad blocker, to keep you safe.
