Stop facing Double VPN connection issues in NordVPN when you can easily use PIA with Shadowsocks.


To recap, if the Double VPN feature is not connecting in NordVPN, get started by trying to connect to the nearest Double VPN server.

You should also update NordVPN to the most recent version, change the VPN protocol, use custom DNS servers, and reinstall NordVPN.

Check the quality of your Internet connection to see if it’s capable of handling the overhead resulted from double encryption.

However, if everything fails, it’s time to drop NordVPN and replace it with Private Internet Access (buy here). You can easily connect to a second VPN location in PIA using a Shadowsocks proxy.
