NordVPN's Meshnet private tunnel feature for Windows, macOS, and Linux is now free for everyone, even users who do not have a subscription to NordVPN.

Meshnet was first launched by NordVPN in June 2022 as a paid feature, allowing users to create private, encrypted tunnels between devices they trust to pass network traffic, essentially creating their own VPN (virtual private network) servers.

For example, Meshnet allows someone to route their network traffic from their smartphone through their home computer while away on holiday, making it appear like they're browsing from their usual location.

The user's traffic may also be passed through a secure tunnel on a friend's or a relative's computer as long as they are using the Meshnet app and have been invited into their friend's Mesh.
