Atlas VPN shuts down: what it means for users

All current Atlas VPN paid subscribers will be transferred to the NordVPN service automatically for the remainder of their subscription period, the company has announced.

Atlas VPN is set to be closed on April 24th. The decision “stems from a comprehensive assessment of the evolving cybersecurity landscape and our place in it.”

Some of the “insurmountable challenges” that the company named included advancing technological demands, a highly competitive market, and growing costs. This led to the conclusion that Atlas VPN isn’t a sustainable project in the long term.

Atlas VPN also announced a partnership with its sister company, NordVPN. All current paid subscribers will be transferred to the NordVPN service.

“The end of Atlas VPN marks a significant moment for us, filled with both reflection and gratitude. We want to thank you for your trust and support and for being part of our journey. As we transition to this next chapter with NordVPN, we're confident in its ability to provide you with exceptional service and the utmost security online,” the company said.
