Nord Account: A New Way to Log In
NordPass is happy to introduce a new feature — Nord Account, a new and simplified way to sign up and log in to all Nord family products.
This type of a solution is recognized as an industry standard and used by many tech companies. Read this post to find out what to do next if you want to subscribe to NordPass or what will change if you are already a user.
What can I do with Nord Account?
Simpler login process. Nord Account works similarly to Google or Facebook Login. It means that your login credentials are recognized across different Nord products. Nord Account follows the OpenID Connect standard for user authentication, meaning Nord apps can access and share your information across all platforms without requiring your password.
For example, if you are logged in to Nord Account in your default browser, the NordPass app will recognize you, and vice versa. All you need to do is open NordPass, click Login with Nord Account, and you’ll be signed in. The same applies if you are logged in to NordVPN or NordLocker. However, you still need the Master Password to access your items within the NordPass vault.
Choose how to log in. With Nord Account, you can choose to log in either with your account password or a 6-digit code. This is especially useful if, at the time of signing in, you don’t have access to your email address, where the 6-digit code is sent. Logging in with Nord Account is also helpful if you store the password to your email in NordPass.
No need for multiple accounts. With Nord Account, you can log in to other Nord products, such as NordVPN and NordLocker, with a single click. No need to create new accounts — simply use your Nord Account login details, and it will automatically recognize you and log you in.
Manage all your Nord product subscriptions. Nord Account lets you see and manage all your active subscriptions to Nord products in a single place. Extend or cancel them, see the billing history, download apps, change account preferences, and read the latest security reports.
I’m a current user. What does it mean for me?
NordPass was the first product from the Nord family to implement the sign-in process using Nord Account. For NordPass users, this means that logging in will become easier and smoother.
If you forgot your account password, go to the login page and click on ‘Forgot your password?’. The reset link will be sent to your email address. Follow the instructions to create a new password.
I’m a new user. How do I subscribe?
To get NordPass Free, download the app and select Create Account. To do so, you’ll be redirected to the Nord Account page. Follow the steps on the screen to complete the registration. To get NordPass Premium, go to the NordPass checkout page. Fill in your details and complete your purchase. Follow the instructions to finalize your registration and download the app.
If you are still logged in to your Nord Account in your browser when you launch the app, NordPass will recognize you. No need to re-enter any passwords — simply click Login with Nord Account.
Next time you log in, the same principle will apply. If you are still logged in to your Nord Account, you will be able to log in with a simple click of a button. If not, you’ll be asked to enter the password you created when signing up.
