NordVPN App snitches personal data

According to Mike Kuketz security blog the android version of the NordVPN app transmits personal data to third parties.

If you want to avoid calling it home use the openvpn app from f-droid and use the ovpn-files provided by NordVPN.

There is also a tutorial on how to use the ovpn files on NordVPNs website.

Little disadvantage: no pick of the VPN Server on the fly (e.g. according to speed). If you want to change the VPN Server you’d have to have the connection installed and switch to it manually.
