What is Onion and how to use it

Updated

Onion over VPN is a privacy solution where your Internet traffic goes through one of our servers, then goes through the Onion network and then reaches the Internet.

Usually, the Onion network can only be accessed with an Onion browser, meanwhile with NordVPN's Onion over VPN servers you do not need to download the Onion browser. All you need to do is connect to the Onion over VPN server so all your Internet traffic will be routed through the Onion network - No additional applications required.

Of course, you can also alternatively connect to our regular servers, and then use the Onion browser as usual.
