NordLynx is NordVPN’s revolutionary technology built around the WireGuard® VPN protocol. It helps you connect to NordVPN servers faster and improves your VPN connection speeds without compromising security or privacy.
NordLynx is much faster than OpenVPN and other VPN protocols, making it a clear upgrade for everyday security. In fact, NordLynx’s speed test results are among the highest of all commercial VPNs.
To use NordLynx with the NordVPN app for your device, follow the tutorial for your OS below.
If you want to eliminate NordLynx from your VPN connection, simply change to a different VPN protocol in your NordVPN settings.
Please be aware that the WireGuard protocol is still under development. While we are confident in our implementation, WireGuard itself may still contain some unresolved bugs, so use it with caution.

Tip: Don't forget to use a strong password on your NordVPN account. It will help you to avoid credential stuffing attacks and will keep your account safe.
Because generating and remembering strong and secure passwords is not an easy task, we recommend downloading a free password manager — NordPass. It automatically generates strong passwords and stores them securely, saving you time on resetting them in the future.
