NordVPN Announces NordLocker for File Encryption

NordVPN has announced a new file encryption tool called NordLocker. NordLocker will store files either locally on a user’s computer or on a cloud service using end-to-end encryption. The app, which will work on MacOS and Windows, uses the current industry standards for encryption:

  • AES-256
  • 4096-bit RSA

Currently, NordLocker is going through stress tests, but it is expected to release this summer. Early access is available on the NordLocker official website.

The app is ideal for storing photos, documents, or anything a user wants to keep safe. Marty P. Kamden, NordVPN’s SMO says,

“We expect that NordLocker will be popular both for personal use and for work-related cases, especially for those who work in multicultural environments – startups, freelancers, and digital nomads.”

Like NordVPN, NordLocker will benefit from the company’s “zero knowledge encryption process”, according to an announcement on their website. Users will also be able to share files securely. NordLocker works with popular cloud storage services like Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box.

“By releasing NordLocker, we want to make top-notch data security available for everyone – regardless of their tech skills. To achieve this, we combine the best usability practices with the highest encryption standards,” said Kamden. 

Select Server by City with NordVPN

At the end of last year, NordVPN announced that users could now select their server by city, increasing their browser speed and overall connection quality. This feature is available in all countries where NordVPN has multiple servers such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Users can select their server by city on NordVPN’s apps on Windows, macOS, iOS, Android and Android Smart TV. Currently, NordVPN has 5,109 servers in 62 countries with 12 million users around the world. For the most protection, users should combine NordVPN with NordLocker once it becomes available later this summer.
