As smart TVs become more prevalent in lounge rooms, it makes sense think about their security. And, as they also have embedded apps for accessing streaming video services, as we turn away from traditional terrestrial services, we can use a VPN to unlock more viewing options. NordVPN has released an Android TV version of their software to address those needs.
NordVPN’s new VPN app for Android TV allows users to protect their online security. It uses the OpenVPN security protocol to encrypt a user’s online traffic so that sensitive data is protected.
It also makes it easier to enjoy all the video apps pre-installed with Android TV when you live in a part of the world that could reduce your selection of online content.
NordVPN has over 4000 servers in 62 countries.
The native NordVPN app interface offers Quick Connect, which automatically picks the best server in terms of speed, latency, and performance. The CyberSec security suite is integrated into the app to protect an Internet-connected smart TV against malware and cyber-threats and shield you from intrusive ads.
One NordVPN account can be used to secure up to six devices simultaneously. NordVPN also offers applications for Windows, macOS, and iOS. The app can be downloaded from Google Play store on Android TV.
Subscriptions to the service start at $11.95 for one month although a two-year subscription currently costs $2.95 per month. An annual subscription is $5.75 per month.
