NordVPN, a leading cybersecurity company, has introduced a dedicated VPN app for Apple TV following Apple’s recent rollout of tvOS 17 updates supporting third-party VPN applications. A new NordVPN app for Apple TV will increase users’ privacy and security while streaming their favorite content online.
“Users often forget that mobile phones and computers are not the only gateways to your network for cybercriminals. A smart TV is usually connected to the internet, so it can also be hacked, and cybercriminals can spy on users, steal data, or even try to access other devices on the home network. A dedicated VPN app for Apple TV will allow our users to ensure cybersecurity and protect their privacy. Moreover, a VPN can even improve the streaming experience by increasing users’ privacy,” says Vykintas Maknickas, head of product strategy at NordVPN.
There are a number of benefits to using a VPN on Apple TV. A major one is that the NordVPN app protects online traffic from snoops and criminals with its next-generation encryption. Once connected to a VPN server, third parties such as an ISP can no longer follow the user’s activities online.
In addition, users can use a VPN on Apple TV to access their favorite content from home while traveling because a lot of online content is restricted by users’ current location and IP address. The NordVPN application will allow users to watch legitimate subscriptions by simply connecting to a VPN server in their home country.
Finally, because it is fast and reliable, NordVPN will not interfere with users’ streaming habits, increasing their privacy and security without noticeably slowing down the connection. Moreover, using a VPN may improve internet speed in some instances. For example, if the internet service provider has been throttling the connection when it detects streaming.
Installing a dedicated NordVPN app for Apple TV from the App Store is the easiest way to stream safely without the need for a manual VPN router setup which requires certain knowledge and skills. Nevertheless there are also alternative ways to set up a NordVPN on Apple TV.
