NordVPN seems to be one of best VPNs providers on the market. It’s been featured in many publications like Forbes, Yahoo, PC Mag and The Huffington Post.
NordVPN is a no logs VPN provider based in Panama. It’s not under USA law and it’s super easy & safe to use. It works well in China even under strong censorship.
Let’s see what pros & cons it has!
Nord VPN puts a big effort on simplicity and available for all users across the world, even for those ones who had never been using any VPN providers before.
NordVPN promises no DNS or IP leaks.
Smart DNS is a technology that enables you to geo-spoof by resolving your DNS requests at a specified location. This makes it ideal for streaming geo-blocked content. It requires no additional configuration. Double VPN is a feature offered by NordVPN allows you to “chain” VPN servers, so that your data is routed between two or more VPN servers as it travels between you and the internet.
Nord VPN uses the DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA encryption suite for its OpenVPN connections.
There is a per-app kill switch. An automatic kill switch is useful because it protects you in case you get disconnected from your VPN connection. When this happens, the kill switch simply shuts down traffic, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally exposing your sensitive data and personal information.
You can choose which apps will be shut down in the event of a VPN disconnection. NordVPN has 927 servers in 57 countries which are quite a good result.

Apart from MAC it works nicely on iPhone and iPad devices.
Nord VPN has just the one plan. It costs $11.95 per month if paid monthly, with discounts available for bulk time purchases. If purchased annually, for example, the price drops to a very reasonable $5.75 per month.
A three-day free trial is available, which does not require you to provide any payment details. Nord VPN also offers a 30-day money back guarantee.

How to use it on MAC?
Signing up for the service is a straightforward and easy. A valid email address is required. Once signed up, you can download Nord VPN’s software right away, and will receive a confirmation email containing some useful links.
You can download a iOS client and have a blast with easy user’s interface.
Nord VPN is the best for VPN beginners. Its desktop app is easy to use with a friendly, almost cartoonish map to help you find a server. It’s good VPN for torrent downloads.
You can use up to six devices simultaneously on NordVPN, though there are some limitations concerning connecting devices to the same server.
Unfortunately it’s not that fast as it supposed to be but for new VPN users it shouldn't be a problem.
