Avoiding local internet restrictions on Windows

Note: Unfortunately, we are currently experiencing some connectivity issues in the China region as our server configurations for manual connections and applications have recently been blocked. Our developers are aware of the issue and are working on a solution as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Follow these steps to connect to NordVPN while avoiding local internet restrictions, such as censorship measures. See our list of countries where VPNs are illegal for more information.

  1. Download the NordVPN application.
  2. Go into the “Settings” menu of the NordVPN app and switch to the NordLynx protocol.
  3. Return to the main screen and press “Quick Connect.”

    You should now be able to connect.
