The NordVPN native application is the recommended option for connecting to NordVPN servers on your Linux device. We designed it with your experience in mind, giving easy access to features such as CyberSec, Autoconnect, and automated Kill Switch.
We have .deb and .rpm packages, which are compatible with various Debian-based and RHEL-based systems. Here is a list of tutorials on how to set up and use NordVPN on the main Linux distributions:
- Debian, Ubuntu, Elementary OS, and Linux Mint tutorial
- Fedora and QubesOS tutorial
- RHEL and CentOS tutorial
- openSUSE tutorial
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 a free password manager, like NordPass. It generates secure passwords for you and stores them safely, letting you avoid time-wasting password resets in the future.
NordPass offers native apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS, so you can reach your passwords when and where needed, even offline.
