How can I use the NordLynx technology in the NordVPN app for Linux?

NordLynx is the technology that we built around the WireGuard® protocol. It lets you experience WireGuard’s speed benefits without compromising your privacy.

Please be aware that the WireGuard protocol is still under heavy development. While we are confident in our implementation, WireGuard itself may still contain some unresolved bugs, so use it with caution.

  1. Install the NordVPN Linux app. You can find tutorials for various distributions here.
  2. Install the WireGuard package using commands below according to your distribution, enable the Wireguard on the NordVPN app and connect to the NordVPN:

    Ubuntu and Linux Mint

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wireguard/wireguard
