Security

NordVPN offers probably the best service of any VPN provider in terms of privacy and security.

Nord’s standard OpenVPN encryption is RSA-2048 encryption, which is absolutely strong enough by today’s standards. There are also several other options available with NordVPN, that aren’t with other providers:

  • DoubleVPN that allows two or more VPN servers to be connected in a chain. This means your data is encrypted twice before it even reaches the internet. Some may see this as overkill, as OpenVPN traffic with strong encryption is close to unbreakable as it is.

  • TOR over VPN. NordVPN allows you to connect to the NordVPN network, and then to TOR. This can add some security benefits to those using the TOR network, but you will definitely experience slow loading times.

Gateways

Now that you have OpenVPN up and running on your Sabai powered router, you’ll want to set up Gateways, an exclusive Sabai OS feature that allows you to connect to multiple different networks simultaneously.

You can choose which devices connect to the NordVPN server, which connect to your local non-VPN internet, and if you have a VPN Accelerator, you can connect other devices to that, to give them an extra speed boost.

This awesome feature means you can be watching an overseas Netflix series in HD over your VPN Accelerator, whilst securely accessing online banking through the VPN, and browsing social media through your regular home connection, all at the same time!

Sabai OS Gateways also work in combination with our VPN Accelerator, which makes a third connection to choose from, and gives your VPN connection an impressive speed boost.

Setup of Gateways is done through the Sabai OS dashboard, and is the same for all our routers. Head over to the gateways setup page to get started.
