NordVPN is one of the best-known providers of VPN services on the Apple Mac, Windows PC, iPhone and Android devices. Not only has NordVPN recently won a speed test, but there is also a new feature for iOS users. In addition, all interested parties will receive a full 2020% discount on the 68-year package including 2 months of free use as part of a Christmas 3 offer. I have summarized details of all these things for you in this post.

Dark web monitoring for iOS users
In the middle of the month, the “Dark Web Monitoring” feature for NordVPN was released on iOS devices such as the Apple iPhone. The new security tool finds out whether the user's data has been compromised. The permanent scan examines the known e-mail addresses and similar login data to see whether they have been stolen at any point and are now in the darknet or appeared elsewhere. The advantage of the new feature is that you don't have to constantly carry out tests on sites designed for this purpose, but NordVPN keeps checking in the background to see if there has been a data leak. The next step is to equip the Android app with the feature.
NordVPN is the winner in AV-TEST's speed test
NordVPN also points out in a recent press release that the provider's download and upload speeds are superior to others. In doing so, reference is made to the results of AV-TEST, an independent research institute for IT security. NordVPN traces this back to its "NordLynx" encryption protocol, which is based on WireGuard. Daniel Markuson, expert for digital privacy at NordVPN: "We promised our users as well as ourselves that we would be the fastest VPN in the universe - now I can proudly announce that we are."
