High profile VPN service provider, NordVPN, has introduced a dedicated VPN app for Apple TV, following Apple's recent rollout of tvOS 17 updates which supports third-party VPN applications.  

The new NordVPN app can be used to increase user privacy and security while streaming content online, as well as view content that might otherwise be geolocked.

NordVPN app protects online traffic from snoops and criminals using 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 favourite content from home while travelling because a lot of online content is restricted by users' current location and IP address. The NordVPN application will allow users to watch subscriptions by simply connecting to a VPN server in their home country.

Installing a dedicated NordVPN app for Apple TV from the App Store removes the need for a manual VPN router setup. The company says the app will not impact the speed of the connection, and could even improve speeds if the ISP has been throttling the connection when it detects streaming.

"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.
