Does Nord VPN also safeguard an online store?

I have NORDVPN now working on my devices and have found it interrupts or slows down browsing. But my questions is will it protect my online Shopify store too or just my devices and everyday banking or all of these are protected. It just seems to slow access at times.

Hi there!

 

When you use a VPN service on your devices, it secures the connection between YOUR device and the server you're accessing, be it a website, an app, or even your online Shopify store. So, yes, when you access your Shopify store through a device with a VPN active, that specific connection will be secured.

 

However, it's important to understand that the VPN only secures the connection between YOU (your device) and the SERVER (in this case, your Shopify store). It won't secure or encrypt the connection for other users who visit your store.

 

As for the slowdown, VPNs can occasionally impact browsing speeds since they route your traffic through an encrypted server. If the speed reduction is bothersome, you might consider switching servers or checking with NordVPN's support for any optimization tips.

 

Hope this helps!
