Hello,

I use my Android phone as a hotspot for my Windows 10 laptop. I have NordVPN connected to my Android phone, should I also have it connected to my laptop?

Thank you

My educated guess is NO. since you are using your cell phone as hotspot and have a VPN there already, your laptop is using that VPN as well. IMHO there is no need to have a VPN connection on your laptop as well. However, on public WiFi Hotspots it is highly recommended but that is another story...

Thank you for your reply Grizzly!

Interesting enough, I asked NordVPN customer support this very same question, and they said:
Yes, both devices need to be connected, but something didn't seem right about that, and they offered no detailed explanation.
