Most people have a smart phone, a tablet or a laptop with them wherever they go, but they still want to access popular content when they’re away from home. Traditional cable and broadband access provide adequate speeds for online gaming and streaming video, but that’s not what most people want out of their phones and tablets. They’re designed for mobile use, and that’s it.
Homesick for the freedom to use your mobile device the way you want? You can bring that freedom to your Samsung smart TV with NordVPN.
NordVPN’s app supports the following devices:
- Samsung smart TV (all versions)
- Samsung tablet (all versions)
- Android phone (all versions)
- Windows phone
It can also be used to unblock websites and access local businesses and services. You’ll need a good VPN to stream HD content as well as to protect access to content when outside of the UK. But it’s great for gaming and for unblocking content as needed.
Setting Up NordVPN On Your Smart TV
Let’s get started. You can download the NordVPN app from the Google Play Store or the App Store. Once downloaded and installed, open it and log into your account.
If you haven’t set up a NordVPN account yet, do so now. You’ll then be able to access the app’s settings. From here, you can change your VPN subscription and log in to your account. To change the subscription, tap the gear icon in the top right corner of the app’s home screen. Then, select Plan from the menu that appears.
You can choose from three different plans: monthly, quarterly and annually. The cost of the plan you choose will be charged to your iTunes or Google Play account at the end of each month. You can cancel anytime through the app’s settings.
Installing And Using NordVPN On Your Samsung Smart TV
Once you’ve set up your account, it’s time to install the NordVPN app on your Samsung TV.
You can download the app’s Samsung TV partner app, which is available for free from the Google Play Store. This app makes it much easier to install the NordVPN app on your TV. Just open the app and search for “nordvpn” in the search bar. Then, follow the instructions to install the app on your TV.
When the app has finished installing, open it and log in with your account information (email address and password). Then, you can access the VPN’s settings from the app’s home screen. To connect to NordVPN, just click the gear icon in the top right corner of the app’s home screen. Then, select On My TV from the menu that appears.
If everything goes well, you’ll see a symbol with a lock in the upper left corner of your screen. That’s your VPN connection status. To disconnect, just click the gear icon again or select Off My TV from the menu. Now, you can use your device as you normally would, but with improved security and freedom.
If you’ve been searching for a way to improve the security of your device or to gain additional privacy, you can’t go wrong with NordVPN. And if you’re a content creator or a big gamer, unblocking content restrictions and securing your device’s network traffic with a VPN is key.
