Our vision

As part of Nord Security, we stand for a secure and open internet that every user can enjoy regardless of their background or where they come from. This belief has shaped our core values, and it’s behind our every action and policy.

Key priorities:


Freedom of speech


Social equality and empowerment



What we do to help

We support a number of nonprofit and educational institutions around the world. We also run our own social responsibility projects. All these actions cover three main fields reflecting our key priorities:

Freedom of speech

Freedom of speech is both a human right and one of the cornerstones of democracy. The internet has spread it to every corner of the Earth, giving a voice to people who had never been heard before. That's why we believe it's crucial to keep the web free from censorship and surveillance – just like it's supposed to be.

Empowering girls and women in the digital age

We believe that women and girls play an important role in building fair, prosperous, inclusive, and peaceful communities all around the world.

Education and digital awareness

Education is paramount in changing the lives of individuals for the better. That's why everyone should have safe and unrestricted access to the internet – world's greatest source of knowledge. However, we see a lack of digital education in both developing and developed countries. As technology experts, we use our know-how to contribute to a digitally aware society.

Frequently asked questions

What is corporate social responsibility?

Corporate social responsibility is a way for companies to address social, environmental, or economic issues by integrating them into company policy. For example, NordVPN does so by working with nonprofit organizations, participating in educational projects, and helping activists facing online censorship and surveillance.

What is NordVPN?

NordVPN is a virtual private network and security tool that protects your online data. It’s part of Nord Security, a leading online security provider.

How does NordVPN work?

Once you switch on the NordVPN app, it secures your online data traffic and changes your IP address. You can browse the web in privacy and feel secure from snoopers. Changing your IP also enables you to change your virtual location so you can surf the net without borders. NordVPN’s Threat Protection feature fends off other types of online dangers by deleting malware-infected executable files as well as blocking malicious websites, trackers, and intrusive ads.

Is NordVPN safe?

NordVPN is one of the safest VPN providers on the market. We don’t log your online activities, so we can’t share that information with third parties. If you’re connecting to our VPN servers from a restrictive country, try our obfuscated servers. Once you connect to an obfuscated server, it both hides your online activities and masks the fact that you’re using a VPN in the first place.
