Consider adding NordVPN software to 3rd party
Closed, WontfixPublic


I'm requesting the addition of NordVPN command line tool to the software center

Name: NordVPN
Why should this be included? Privacy is a right, and NordVPN is one of the most popular and robust VPN offerings out there, with a strictly audited no-logs policy, over 5000 servers, and support for all major operating systems and openVPN config files for the rest of us. I've been using the OpenVPN config files on my solus installation, but it'd be nice to have the full features of their command line software like auto-selection of server and blocking non-vpn connections.
Is it Open Source? No
Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software? Anyone concerned about privacy with a few bucks to spare, which is probably a good portion (at least 5%) of solus users.
Link to source tarball/zip file: No source, but here's a .deb release:

The 3rd party software section is marked as deprecated and no new packages will be included, only updates to existing ones until the flatpak/snap integration is done from within the software center.

Thanks for the update. I'll look around flathub.
