What is Onion over vpn?
Onion over vpn is a special feature by Nord vpn that reroutes your traffic through multiple encrypted servers around the world. Browsing with Onion online makes it a lot harder for people to track your traffic, and thus makes you a lot less vulnerable online.
The word Onion comes from the vegetable, and is used to simulate the layers of protection it presents for your device or network. The Onion feature is the strongest feature that a vpn can offer you when it comes to security measures.
3 reasons you need Onion over Nord vpn
Accessibility and simplicity
You don’t have to download any browser, just connect to the vpn and you’re set.
Privacy from the authorities
The authorities can see that you’re using Onion, but not what you’re using it for.
Nord vpn sends your traffic through an encrypted tunnel, which makes your browsing safer.
Although Onion works great to hide your traffic, it also has some downsides. Let’s just say that if you’re just casually browsing the web, you don’t really need onion at all. It decreases the normal internet speed and we all know how frustrating that can be sometimes.
This is where the double vpn shines. The double vpn offers roughly the normal internet speed, with two layers of protection, perfect for the everyday browser.
Usually, you can only access the Onion feature through the The Onion Router (Tor) browser. Well this was until the vpn companies started branching out into the Onion world.
