NordVPN is strategically based in Panama, a country famous in the VPN community for its lack of mandatory data retention laws. NordVPN takes full advantage of this, promising their users a logless browsing experience, in addition to other great security measures such as DNS leak protection and end-to-end encryption. This makes the provider a great VPN solution for those in China who are looking to use the service primarily for privacy.

NordVPN’s speeds are a little lacking (unsurprising when it comes to the more security-heavy providers), but the client is still workable with little to no obvious lag. This goes for all their platforms, which range from the typical OS X and Android to the more obscure Tomato and DD-WRT.
