NordVPN | March 16, 2023
NordVPN's current product update features Meshnet file-sharing, easy file-sharing functionality, and an open-source Linux application which provides free meshnet to everyone.
Meshnet's benefits no longer require a NordVPN subscription. Computers and mobile devices are now connected via a peer-to-peer VPN tunnel. Users can bypass restrictions by routing their internet traffic through any NordVPN-enabled remote device. Windows, mac, and linux devices can be personal VPN servers. This implies consumers can now enjoy perks at home regardless of their location.
Meshnet allows instant unlimited file sharing and sharing unlimited-size photos and videos without quality loss. In addition, it is a safe approach to share files through an end-to-end encrypted peer-to-peer VPN tunnel. Users can share and receive files from their own devices and from NordVPN-installed relatives, friends, and co-workers. Two-way permission ensures privacy with the new functionality.
Meshnet lets users avoid internet restrictions by routing their traffic through any remote NordVPN-installed device. Windows, Mac, and Linux devices can serve as personal VPN servers. This means consumers can enjoy all advantages at home regardless of their location.
NordVPN has rolled out three of its products under an open-source license:
The entire NordVPN Linux application,
Libtelio, which is a networking library used throughout NordVPN apps, and
Libdrop, a Meshnet file-sharing library.
Developers can now audit, review, and contribute to these products' source code, which is publicly available. NordVPN, an opensource shows transparency, community engagement, and product trust by making these products open source. Android, iOS, macOS, Windows, Linux, and Android TV support Meshnet.
NordVPN updated its Meshnet documentation page on its website, which states:
Internet traffic routing: With Meshnet, travelers can use a laptop left at home to browse the internet with their own IP address. Meshnet lets you establish your own VPN server through your own or your friends' devices, no matter their whereabouts.
Secure Remote Device Access: To view shared folders remotely, Meshnet doesn't require public sharing. It secures your home network using a peer-to-peer VPN tunnel, so you're the only one connecting to your home network.
Gaming: Meshnet acts as a virtual local area network (LAN), allowing users to play multiplayer games with others without LAN wires. In short, users can connect to the same server from different places.
NordVPN Product Strategist, Vykintas Maknickas, remarked, "We are continuously expanding the capabilities of NordVPN. This release marks a significant change in openness by both making part of the service free as well as open-sourcing a substantial part of our client software.”

With this version, you can use its management console to deploy and assign a lot of new Windows apps.
