On Tuesday, leading VPN (virtual private network) service provider NordVPN announced a new feature Meshnet. The new feature enables users to instantly connect to other devices rather than routing their traffic over a VPN server. Meshnet allows users to route their traffic over a laptop they left at home. It enables them to use their own IP address and browse the internet.
Product strategist at NordVPN Vykintas Maknickas said Meshnet allows users to create their own NordVPN server. But a typical NordVPN connection diverts their internet traffic over servers. It includes their own or friend’s devices despite their location, which just need a NordVPN subscription.
Keep in mind that a regular NordVPN service paths users’ internet traffic over VPN servers. Meshnet enables them to create their own NordVPN server. It allows users to send or receive data from their friends, colleagues, and family members. They really have no need to host their work projects on a server.
Meshnet as a Virtual LAN without Cables
It is important that meshnet effectively works as a virtual LAN (Local Area Network). It enables users to play multiplayer games with their friends without additional LAN cables. Users now need to update their NordVPN app and ensure connectivity with the NordLynx protocol to utilize the Meshnet feature. Turn it on in the NordVPN app after updating and connect up to 10 personal or 50 external devices.
Moreover, NordVPN announced last week the removal of servers from India. The move came following recent cybersecurity advice from the CERT-In (Computer Emergency Response Team). It is noteworthy that Surfshark and Express VPN earlier removed their servers from India following the advice from the cyber agency on April 28.

Key Benefits of using NordVPN
NordVPN is struggling in making your online experience as private and secure as possible. Governments, cybersecurity experts, and cryptography devotees worldwide have approved the AES encryption standard.
NordVPN offers a faster connection and more freedom with 5500+ servers in 60 countries to ensure a smooth and fast VPN experience.
Strict No-Logs Policy:
NordVPN shields your internet traffic from your ISP (internet service provider) and others. No-log VPN doesn’t collect traffic moving through its servers.
Secure Connection with Meshnet:
This feature enables users to access devices over encrypted private channels. It allows private and secure point-to-point connections. This feature works as a virtual encrypted LAN.
Block Malware & Other Threats:
NordVPN offers additional protection with CyberSec. Its advanced Threat Protection feature can protect your browsing even if you aren’t connected to a VPN server.
MFA (Multi-factor authentication) provides an additional layer of security to your online accounts. You just need to enter a password and approve the login attempt with a time-sensitive code, a special app, or a second device.
Split Tunneling Support:
It is an advanced VPN feature to select which app needs VPN protection or which can directly access the internet. The first group gets the safety of the secure tunnel of your VPN and the 2nd group can enjoy faster speeds to access local services.
Get your Dedicated IP:
NordVPN offers a dedicated or static IP address to a single website hosting account. It enables website owners to access their sites using an IP instead of using a domain name.
It is an advanced VPN security feature to route traffic over 2 VPN servers instead of one with double encryption. This option hides online activity behind 2 servers, also known as VPN server chaining.
