Linux is an open source operating system that is well-known for its security and privacy features. However, many people find it difficult to use due to its lack of a graphical user interface (GUI). NordVPN is a virtual private network (VPN) service that allows users to connect to the internet privately and securely. It has both a paid and free version, with the paid version offering more features. In this article, we will show you how to install Nord VPN on Linux in 5 easy steps.
On your Linux device, the NordVPN native application is the preferred method of connecting to NordVPN servers. We built it with you in mind, allowing you quick access to features like CyberSecurity, Autoconnect, and an automatic Kill Switch.
Tip: Remember to choose a strong password for your NordVPN account, as this will help you avoid credential stuffing attempts and keep your account secure.
We recommend using a free password manager like NordPass since creating and remembering strong and secure passwords is difficult. It generates and retains secure passwords for you, allowing you to avoid time-consuming password changes in the future.
