How to Get NordVPN for Free?

There is a workaround that allows you to test what is probably the best VPN on the planet for free...

You have probably heard us repeating that NordVPN is one of the best VPNs money could buy. Heck, we’ll even say it is the best, with its large server delivering amazing fast download and upload speeds from pretty much any place on the planet.

And every now and then someone sends us an email asking how he/she could get it for free. In today’s article, we want to answer that question for everyone thinking about the same thing.

The first thing you should know is…

Good VPNs must be paid for

Simply put, it costs a lot of money to run a wide server network like the one NordVPN operates. It has to pay for the maintenance of those servers, replace them then they reach end-of-life, pay for the engineers to keep them up to date, as well as pay for other administrative costs every business has.

Yes, there are some free VPNs out there, but you should avoid using them. If you are not paying for the service, that VPN has found a different way to make money. And the most common way is to track what its users are doing and later sell that data to interested parties. You would be surprised just how valuable our data is these days.

The second popular way for free VPNs to make money is advertising. They do this by replacing ads on sites you visit with ads of their own. Or they append every page with ads.

We understand this cause they too have bills to pay, but we don’t like what ends up happening in turn. In this process, a VPN acts like Facebook or Google, and turns us and our browsing habits into a product to be sold on the market. Plus, we get tracked across the board and that kinda kills the point of getting a VPN in the first place.

Next comes the answer to the question…

How can you get a NordVPN for free?

There is a workaround but you will still have to use your credit card.

NordVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee that allows you to test out its service for a full month. If you determine that it doesn’t work for you, follow their simple procedure and wait for the money to be returned to your account.

You will still have to select and pay for the plan you want and in that sense, we advise you to get the one with the longest commitment as it will get you the best deal. But, if for any reason you want your money back, just contact NordVPN and ask them for it. It’s a simple procedure.

So it’s not completely free as you will still have to pay for NordVPN’s service, but it could be free for the first 30 days if this (awesome) VPN doesn’t end up working for you. Chances are it will — it’s the best VPN out there — but who knows. Perhaps you have some rather unique needs.

In any case, you should “push the button” and get yourself some serious VPN protection. And trust me – NordVPN delivers every single time.
