Chrome/Chromium OS setup


Please Note: Although technically you can use the L2TP / PPTP protocols, they have serious security flaws. Whenever possible, we recommend choosing OpenVPN or IKEv2/IPSec instead.

You can set up NordVPN on Chromium Device device using the L2TP/IPSec protocol.

Here is a tutorial how to connect via L2TP/IPSec:

  • 1. Right-click on the clock bar and choose Settings
  • 2. Click on Add Connection and then choose Add Private Network
  • 3. Fill the appeared window with following information:

    Server hostname – the server addresses you will find here.

    User certificate – None installed
    Username – your NordVPN account name
