“If you want to keep your browsing private but don’t need to encrypt your entire internet traffic, a reliable VPN extension will help you,” says Ruby Gonzalez, Head of Communications at NordVPN. “Also, browser extensions are usually lighter and faster than standard VPN apps, so you can switch between locations in a second.”

Four reasons why you should use VPN browser extension

Keep your IP address private

This tool helps to secure your internet traffic and hide your IP address. When you connect to a remote VPN server, your online activities are encrypted, and your device is assigned the IP address of that VPN server. This makes it look like you are in another location.

Safely access services and websites

The lightweight extensions for Chrome and Firefox help to access favorite sites safely even if they are not protected by HTTPS. Many blogs, fun websites, and forums still don’t offer HTTPS encryption, which means that eavesdroppers can see what you do while browsing. When the VPN extension is enabled, you can be sure your browsing is private and safe.

Avoid malware and annoying ads

The magical CyberSec feature keeps you safe from malware and other cyber threats waiting to get into your device. It is available both on Chrome and Firefox extensions. What’s even better, it blocks auto-play ads and annoying pop-ups that you probably aren’t too eager to see.

Protect your data from IP leaks

Even if you use a VPN, there’s a chance to experience WebRTC leaks in your browser that may still disclose your real IP address. This is no fun, having in mind that all kinds of snoopers may access your sensitive data and use it to identify you. NordVPN extension allows disabling the WebRTC protocol that Chrome and Firefox use by default. It’s a good way to make sure that your identity stays hidden.

NordVPN released its first proxy extension for Google Chrome in 2017, soon followed by the Mozilla Firefox version. You can download the NordVPN browser extensions from the Chrome Web Store or the Firefox Add-ons page.
