There are several reasons why you may be having trouble connecting to NordVPN on your Windows computer. These include issues with your account status, network settings, adapters, or app configuration.
That’s why you should go through the following steps one by one.
- First, check for any issues with your account: Making sure there are no issues with your account
- If that does not help, check if your NordVPN application is set up correctly: Adjusting the Windows app configuration
- Make sure that the TAP adapters are installed and running properly: TAP driver error when connecting to a VPN
- The issue might also lie in the configuration of your Windows OS, its applications, and networks: Checking your operating system configuration
After each step, check if the issue remains.
Tip: Don't forget to use a strong password on your NordVPN account, as it will help you to avoid credential stuffing attacks and will keep your account safe.
As generating and remembering strong and secure passwords is not an easy task, we recommend downloading our free password manager — NordPass. It generates secure passwords for you and stores them safely, letting you avoid time-wasting password resets in the future. NordPass also offers a native Windows app.
