NordVPN was born in 2012 when four childhood friends came together to build technology that could liberate the internet. Spending a lot of time in different parts of the world they saw Internet censorship, content control, and intrusive government surveillance growing faster than ever before. The feeling that the internet was losing its main purpose led to a search for possible solutions on how to overcome all the restrictions. After setting up the first VPN server and sharing the prototype among their friends, the creators started receiving extremely positive feedback and were encouraged to continue their work. That’s how NordVPN was born, now serving more than 12 million people worldwide.
